4 out of 5 stars - The Silent House – review

The Silent House has the technical flair of an exceptionally creepy and insidious conjuring trick. Not since Paranormal Activity have I seen a film make a roomful of hardened critics yelp suddenly and simultaneously. It is a lo-fi psychological horror from Uruguayan director Gustavo Hernández about unexplained happenings within a derelict house in remote woodland, based on a real-life unsolved murder case in Uruguay from the 1940s. The film is shot in real time on a handheld digital camera in one, continuous 78-minute take, or rather, the first 78 minutes is shot in this way. You must not leave during the credits.
