You Can't Hear Elizbaeth Olsen Scream on Poster for 'Silent House'
The first trailer for the forthcoming remake of Silent House starring Elizabeth Olsen touted the idea of a real-time horror flick, and the poster is keeping that claim afloat. However, in the film that is supposedly one single take through an entire house of horrors, there's bound to be some trickery afoot. However, I'm pleased to see that the first poster for the film doesn't use a standard image of an ominous haunted house, but rather focuses on Sundance starlet Olsen clearly scared out of her wits by something. The question is whether or not the film actually works as well as the original Uruguayan film on which this remake is based.
Here's the poster for Chris Kentis and Laura Lau's Silent House via IMP Awards:
Trapped inside her family's haunted lakeside retreat, a young woman (Olsen) descends into madness…
Silent House, the US remake, was co-directed by American filmmakers Chris Kentis & Laura Lau, of the horror films Open Water and Grind previously. It's based on Gustavo Hernández's 2010 Uruguayan film La casa muda. Produced by Elle Driver & Tazora Films, this premiered at the Sundance Film Festival as a late entry last year. Open Road Films is releasing Silent House in limited theaters starting March 9 this winter.
