I like the concept of the film. I wont spoil what happens for you, but if you generally watch these type of movies then the ending is predicable! very good acting cant fault anything about that! but if your a hardcore horror buff may not be your cup of tea

Just watched this last night and was very impressed. Elizabeth Olsen gives a great performance, the tension is there from the get go and you are always on the edge of your seat wondering how things are going to unfold. Reading some reviews, I see the ending has been critiscized but to be honest I preferred it to the usual whispers of ghosts saying the protagonists name etc. I was not disappointed at all. Put it this way, I would much rather watch this than 'paranormal activity' any day. Oh, and only a little over a pound on Blu Ray! Well worth a look.

Must admit i'm not normally a fan of this style Yof production, however the film did manage to both hold my attention and produce several moments of tension.
The formula - a large dark house,unwelcome noises, doors once open--closed.
'Sarah'(Elizabeth Olsen) is in the house with her father, the task to clear out the rubbish so it can be renovated for sale.
All of a sudden after hearing a loud noise she finds herself seemingly alone in this very dark house with the feeling that somebody else is there.
This is largely a psychological thriller with much threat and desperation, with maybe a twist in store.

Sarah (Elizabeth Olsen) helps her dad (Adam Trese) and creepy uncle (Eric Sheffer Stevens, "My have you grown Sarah") clean up an old family lake house for resale. The cousins didn't want to help. Sarah has very little memory of the place as a child and doesn't even remember the neighbor girl who she played with...hmmm. The house has been vandalized and appears to have rodent damage which prevents the use of electricity. It is unnaturally pitch black dark inside, even during the day because the house is boarded up and of course they don't have cell phone reception. Between these few clues and the title of the film, we know which direction the film is going to take, just not the details. Yawn.

Sarah becomes unnerved by things that go bump in the night and much of the film is dark or poorly lit with camera angels that focus on Sarah's cleavage. When they are not focused on her cleavage, they are extremely bad amateur angels that distracted from the film instead of enhancing it. Might work as a rental if you ran out of paint to watch dry. A fair film made bad by a director trying out gimmicks.

F-bomb, strong sexual innuendo, no nudity outside of cleavage.

The fact that it's one long shot and not several is more of an 'achievement' for the makers rather than the viewer,well done but not necessary.
It's a fairly brief,albeit,predictable story and only becomes 'scary' towards the end when it gets a bit more 'supernatural' ,up until then it' just one scene after another of whatsername looking terrified at noises in a dark house...what you can see.,the camera lurches round like a drunken sailor and goes out of focus so as to obscure any definite cause of the noises etc.
All in all it's worth watching once but since it has no real ending..seriously as it fades out you'll probably be thinking "yeah,and?"
It's okay but next to any cutscene in the much better Silent Hill 2 (the game,not the film) it's rather been done/seen before.

The original Uruguayan Silent House got major press around the world because it featured the conceit that it was filmed in real time, no camera cuts, no edited necessary, it's all presented as real. Almost as if it was an extension of the found footage premise without the messy need to literally place the camera in the action. The 2012 remake directed by Open Water writers and directors Christ Kentis & Laura Lau only exists so people don't have to read all those pesky subtitles. Any so called horror moments are negated 100% due to the commitment to the conceit; anything that could be deemed shocking is missed as the camera darts around following our heroin, Elizabeth Olsen (who is wasted in the lead role). It could be said, that the film is so scary that even the camera men can't watch, but saying such a thing is complimentary in the extreme.

Love this movie the director keeps the tension high on all levels up until the really bad ending. Filmed in real time huh!!! Elizabeth Olsen is brilliant through out. Can't be easy playing that sort of character! Blu-Ray is fantastic once you figure out how to get the best possible picture.

Elizabeth Olsen goes to help her dad out renovating his house before they sell it, along with the help of her uncle. All the windows are boarded up, so they constantly go around with lamps or flashlights. Olsen does a good job acting terrified even though nothing actually happens, except for a few noises upstairs. Her dad goes to investigate and gets knocked out by someone or something, which makes her even more petrified than before, so she runs out of the house and comes across her uncle who is on his way there. He, of course ignores her request to get help and they head back to the house. They then spend ages searching it, find nothing and Olsen believes she sees some ghosts, who knock out her uncle as well and drag him off. It then turns out that Olsen was molested by her dad and uncle as a child and she is the one who actually knocked them both out and tied them up and she imagined everything else, which doesn't make the slightest bit of sense and the film then quickly descends into farce...
