Trailer Talk - The Silent House (2011)
Evan: This trailer wasn’t really that frightening, but I’m definitely interested in seeing this film just for the novelty of an entire horror movie in one continuous shot. It did evoke some shades of “Blair Witch Project” and “Texas Chainsaw Massacre,” so they could be heading in the right direction. If pulled off, it could be an incredibly intense experience. Hope to see it with a midnight crowd. Trailer: B- Movie: B+
Jess: I’m a sucker for one-shot movies, and with a scary movie it’ll be interesting to see how the actress does. I’m also a wuss when it comes to scary movies, and you throw a creepy looking little girl in the corner I’m going to scream. I thought the trailer was ok, but the hook for me is that it’s a one shot movie.
JR: I love a trailer where you know what you’re getting from the logo that appears at the beginning. I love horror, and seeing films from countries I’ve never seen films from before, both of which this movie boasts. A film in one continuous shot is extremely difficult to pull off, but if done right, it creates an absolutely amazing effect. A great slogan like “Real fear, in real time” gets me every time. This movie may be gimmicky, but it looks like a gimmick I can completely buy into. I absolutely can’t wait.
Megan: Oh wow! This was shot all in one takzzZZzzz. Scary movie is a scary movie is a scary movie. It’ll be good for cheap thrills I’m sure!
