Real fear in real time with Silent House

I would love to get my hands on the original Uruguayan horror film Silent House, but we in The Basement are content to share the trailer for the U.S. remake until then.

The film, which plays out in real time, follows a young woman as her panic turns into real terror when she's trapped inside her family's crumbling lake house with an unknown entity. Elizabeth Olsen stars in the film hot off her success in the indie flick Martha Marcy May Marlene, which is supposed to be quite brilliant.

This is a killer premise and the real-time gimmick is perfect for the horror genre. The original Silent House is considered a minor classic and the trailer for the U.S. version is quite effective.

But we'll let you be the judge of that. Press play and sound off. The film hits theatres March 9.
