Open Road Films and Liddell Entertainment’s Silent House opens this week in wide release. The pic, which premiered at last year’s Sundance Film Festival, was co-directed by filmmaking duo Chris Kentis and Laura Lau, who initially made a splash back in 2004 with Open Water. The screenplay was written by Laura Lau and based on the Uruguayan film La Casa Muda, written by Oscar Estevez.
I recently sat down with the team to discuss the creation of the appearance of an uninterrupted take for an entire movie, along with crafting the story to fit that conceit. They definitely seemed energized by the restrictions of the film’s structure and elaborated on the challenges creating in-camera the kind of suspense beats that are normally fine-tuned in editing.
The film “ 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 the interview!
