Micro Review: Dead Silence

I haven't revisited James Wan and Leigh Whannell's follow up to their smash hit Saw since its initial release in 2007. At the time, it didn't do a lot for me. Now, having distanced myself from the franchise they made uber popular, I found myself enjoying this scare story a lot more. This isn't torture porn, it's an old-school horror film about a cursed town facing a supernatural evil. It's heavy on atmosphere and light on gore, which likely explains why it didn't do well at all. But, if you like creep corridors and moody old buildings, you'll dig Dead Silence. And dolls . . . if you're scared of dolls, this will chill you to the bone. This isn't a classic, but it doesn't deserve to be ignored. A Good from me.

  1. I'm surprised you got to the end of the film! I found it terrifying... and I love horror films! I got about 10 minutes in and I found it too much!

    Might give it another go soon. Nice review.
