2012 Oscar Foreign Language Film Submissions: ‘The Silent House’

A thriller that depends very heavily on two things: the supposed 78 minutes ‘continuous’ shot to bring out some sense of creepiness this kind of movie needed so much, and a plot twist; with also two possible results: either you’ll be entertained, or feel cheated.

My Rating: 3/10
