Silent House Movie Theatrical Trailer
Sarah is 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.
From the directors of the hit film Open Water, Silent House 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 to terror as events become increasingly ominous in and around the house. Directed by filmmaking duo Chris Kentis and Laura Lau, Silent House uses meticulous camera choreography to take the audience on a tension-filled, real time journey, experienced in a single uninterrupted shot.
A location can make or break any film that utilizes a single setting. In some cases, a location can become its own character and take on its own certain fame – take the PSYCHO house, for instance.
For Kentis and Lau, whose film was set entirely in and around a single location, their mission was two-fold: Find a home that would not only suit their atmospheric needs, as Sarah maneuvered her way through its darkest recesses, but also give them the adequate space they needed to turn the location into, as Kentis calls it, “our own little sound stage.”
“It was not easy finding this location,” Lau says. “We had to have high enough ceilings because the whole house had to be pre-lit from above. We had incredibly long takes and we were shooting 360 so there was no place to hide lights except from above.”
