The Silent House Remake Finds Distribution
It was just at this year's AFM that we reported the directing team of Chris Kentis and Laura Lau (Open Water) were getting behind an English language remake of La Casa Muda, aka Silent House, the first Latin American film to be shot entirely with a professional photo camera that also happened to be filmed in one single 80-minute sequence shot! Well guess what? It's on its way to US markets!
Open Road Films has partnered with Liddell Entertainment for the U.S. release of Silent House.
Original La Casa Muda Synopsis:
Laura (Florencia Colucci) and her father, Wilson (Gustavo Alonso), settle down in a cottage that seems to be off the beaten track in order to update it since its owner (Abel Tripaldi) will soon put the house up for sale. They will spend the night there in order to start the repairs 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. Wilson goes up to see what is going on while she remains downstairs on her own, waiting for her father to come down. The plot is based on a true story that happened some time ago in a small village in Uruguay. La Casa Muda focuses on the last seventy-eight minutes, second by second, while Laura attempts to leave the house, which hides an obscure secret, unharmed.
REAL FEAR IN REAL TIME is the most remarkable underlying feature of the film, which will not go unnoticed by all those who may be willing to experience this different and disturbing filming experience.
