Open Road Films and Liddell Entertainment’s Silent House provides another great showcase for Elizabeth Olsen (following up Martha Marcy May Marlene). It’s entirely up to her to carry this “real-time” supernatural thriller and she more than pulls it off with an intense, layered performance.
I recently sat down with Olsen to talk about the film’s unique structure, the challenges of the shoot and how she favors tension and fear over more explicit kills.
The film, from Open Water duo Chris Kentis and Laura Lau, “is a uniquely unsettling horror thriller starring Elizabeth Olsen as Sarah, a young woman who finds herself sealed inside her family’s secluded lake house. With no contact to the outside world, and no way out, panic turns to terror as events become increasingly ominous in and around the house.”
The film opens March 9th. Hit the jump to check out the interview!
