Today we were provided with a first look at all of the stills from James Wan’s follow-up to Saw, Dead Silence, which hits theaters March 23rd. We caught an early glimpse at the trailer that will be attched to The Hitcher in theaters tomorrow, and oh-my-f’n-God was it awesome… I hope you guys agree. Read on for all the stills and watch for the official web launch as early as tomorrow! The screenplay was written by Saw creator Leigh Whannell.
Newlyweds Jamie (Kwanten) and Lisa Ashen have established a new life for themselves far from their hometown of Ravens Fair–a sleepy, near-forgotten blip on the map haunted by late-night whispers and ghost stories from generations past. But when his wife is gruesomely murdered, Jamie reluctantly returns to Ravens Fair for the funeral, intent on unraveling the mystery surrounding her death.
Once back under his family’s roof, reunited with his ill father (Gunton) and his father’s new young bride (Valletta), Jamie begins to explore the creepy town and encounters the legend of Mary Shaw, a famous murdered ventriloquist whose presence still casts a pall over Ravens Fair. Himself the lead suspect in his wife’s murder, Jamie is forced to dig deep into the town’s bloody past for answers, where he soon uncovers the truth behind the curse that ended Lisa’s life…and threatens to take his as well.
