Monday Movie Musings - Silent House
And yet I saw Silent House the first week it was released.
(I blame Eric Sheffer Stevens. And Maia Strong, who made me go see it with her.)
(Yep, it's all Eric's fault.)
I've been tracking the film since it was in pre-production, as soon as ESS was cast. The single-shot technique intrigued me, and it was fascinating to listen to Eric talk about how filming it was different from other film experiences. But it was HORROR. Sob.
So I settled into my seat at the theater with more than a little trepidation. I was fully prepared to fling myself under the chair if necessary.
But you know what? I actually liked it.
(Unlike a lot of horror aficionados, apparently. So maybe I'm more its target audience than they are!)
