Based on Gustavo Hernández’s real time chiller La Casa Muda (The Silent House), the team behind Open Water bring the American remake Silent House to the big screen.
Shot in one continuous take Elizabeth Olson stars as Sarah, a young woman who becomes trapped inside her father’s lakeside house along with Uncle and Father as strange goings on start to occur.
The real time set up might have been done before, but the element of the movie being shot in one take is intriguing. To celebrate the release the makers have teamed up with www.shootingpeople.com and have created a rather brilliant competition.
Make an 88 second short film in one continuous take, and your movie could be featured on the DVD of Silent House when it’s released later this year. You can get the full terms and conditions and more details here;
