Even with an American remake already in the can directed by Chris Kentis (Open Water) and starring Elizabeth Olsen, we’re still extremely hungry to see Gustavo Hernandez’s La Casa Muda or The Silent House. Come this May we’ll finally be getting our chance!
Look for the flick opening in extremely limited theaters May 6th from IFC Midnight with a VOD launch to be announced. Keep it locked here for more.
Based on a true events occuring in the late 40’s in a small village in Uruguay, ‘La Casa Muda’ is groundbreaking horror filmed in one single continuous shot of seventy eight minutes. The film centers on Laura, who, second by second, intends to leave a house which hides an obscure secret, unharmed. Laura and her father Wilson settle down in a cottage they have to renew since its owner will soon put the house up for sale. They will spend the night there and repair the following morning. Everything seems to go smoothly until Laura hears a sound that comes from outside and gets louder and louder on the upper floor of the house.
