Storyline Heading
A continuous camera shot, following Sarah and the horrifying ordeal she encounters at a summer home over the course of an evening. Where Sarah goes, the camera follows...and so does the audience as she tries to make sense of memories from her past and the mysterious figure stalking her.
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Horror - While this is a horror film, there is actually little in the way of gore and violence in general is at a general minimum. Central to the film is a gimmick that makes the film look as if it were one single, uninterrupted shot, but the main focus is star Elizabeth Olsen, for whom this is basically a one-woman show. Language, violence, adult subject matter makes this film too scary and intense for kids.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Above Average Silent House represents one of the most intense, unsettling horror movies I have recently viewed.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Average My attention was held for the first act or so. Then any attempt at realism was abandoned, and it became clear that the house, and the movie containing it, were devices to manufacture methodical thrills.

Entertainment Weekly Full Review
Above Average It will make you jump, to be sure, and your heart to beat a little bit faster. But what's truly scariest about it takes place not in the body, but in the mind.

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 31 moviegoers:
These are pretty terrible reviews overall. Even the target audience of teens didn't rate it very high. It's obvious this is a movie that you should probably avoid. It might be worth a dollar rental if you're a big fan of horror.
