Silent House’ introduces us to Sarah ((Elizabeth Olsen) our 20-something old soon to be married heroine, who’s returned with her father to their old family vacation home to pack it up, board it up, and say farewell to it before it is sold. But it’s going to take a lot of work; squatters have defaced it, rust has wrecked the plumbing and mildew’s worked its way into the electrical system.
Dad and Sarah are soon joined by Uncle Peter who’s come to help with the tidying, a neighbor Sarah really doesn’t remember from childhood summers pops by, and a creepy little girl lurks just out of sight in convenient shadows. The players are in place, and the suspense begins. It’s just little things at first; a noise here, a falling piece of plastic sheeting there.
And then Sarah’s dad is attacked, his eye bloodily gouged from his skull. Sarah tries to run. But does she get away? Well you can answer that question by getting yourself a copy.
