Silent House – Reviewed: Don’t turn out the lights!

A remake of the 2010 film La Casa Muda out of Uruguay, Silent House follows the same basic premise for about seventy five percent of the way.  The continuous shot style might possibly split viewers, with some complaining it is too closely related to the shaky cam nature of found footage movies.  One element that won’t be argued is the acting of Elizabeth Olsen which is superb.

Brian Keene’s GHOUL gets a trailer and an air date….

Premiering April 13th on Chiller is GHOUL an adaptation from Brian Keene’s novel. This is the next in many planned original movies for the network which kicked things off a couple months back with Steve Niles’ REMAINS.

Synopsis: “It is the summer of 1984 when a teenage couple goes missing among the gravestones of the local cemetery. Twelve-year-old Timmy and his best friends, Barry and Doug, have grown up hearing stories about a sinister Ghoul that haunts the cemetery. Eventually, they begin to wonder if the horrific legend might actually be real. Timmy and his friends are forced to put their friendship to the ultimate test when they dig up long-buried secrets, facing their personal demons and the one hiding underground.”

Looks almost like a mix between Stephen King’s IT and STAND BY ME…will it come close to as good as either of the aforementioned titles? Only one way to find out, tune in to Chiller on April 13th (A Friday the 13th, of course)!
