Opening in extremely limited theaters May 6 from IFC Midnight is Gustavo Hernandez’s kinda ok La Casa Muda (The Silent House), which fails to deliver in the finale.
Still a fun flick, inside you’ll find the official trailer and poster, with VOD dates forthcoming. A U.S. remake has already been filmed (Directed by Chris Kentis, and starring Elizabeth Olsen), and is awaiting a release.
“Based on a true events occuring in the late 40’s in a small village in Uruguay, ‘La Casa Muda’ is groundbreaking horror filmed in one single continuous shot of seventy eight minutes. The film centers on Laura, who, second by second, intends to leave a house which hides an obscure secret, unharmed. Laura and her father Wilson settle down in a cottage they have to renew since its owner will soon put the house up for sale. They will spend the night there and repair the following morning. Everything seems to go smoothly until Laura hears a sound that comes from outside and gets louder and louder on the upper floor of the house.”
