I love a film that keeps all of their cards close to their chest and then explodes leading up to release. Thus far, we’ve seen an clip that revealed nothing, along with a handful of stills featuring Martha Marcy May Marlene star Elizabeth Olsen. Now, Open Road is exploding out of the gate with an excellent trailer for Silent House, their remake of the Spanish La Casa Muda that was directed by Open Water‘s Chris Kentis and Laura Lau. Bloody Disgusting saw the film at its Sundance world premiere last January; Ryan Daley quite liked it.
In theaters March 9, the trailer promises real time fear, a kind of new spin on the genre (even though [REC] already did it). “Moment by moment, second by second, the silence will kill you…” states the trailer.
Olsen plays 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 to terror as events become increasingly ominous in and around the house.”
