The Silent House (La Casa Muda) is a unique film, one that comes from Uruguay. But also it is said to be the first horror film of its kind shot in real time. This means it was shot in one continuous shot which lasted 78 minutes, so you can imagine the kind of buzz that is happening behind this one.
Here’s the bad news. Well it’s actually good or bad depending on your opinion. When ever a good foreign surfaces you just know it will be remade and in this case the American remake is already in production simply titled Silent House. The remake is being helmed by Chris Kentis and Laura Lau with Elizabeth Olsen, Adam Trese and Eric Sheffer all starring.
Anyway thanks to our friends over at 24FPS we have the international trailer and poster as well as a translated synopsis, enjoy. The Silent House is directed by Gustavo Hernández and written by Oscar Estevez. The film stars, Florencia Colucci, Abel Tripaldi and Gustavo Alonso.
Synopsis: “Laura ( Florencia Colucci) and her father ( Gustavo Alonso) settle down in a cottage which seems to be off the beaten track in order to update it since its owner ( Abel Tripaldi) will soon put the house on sale. They will spend the night there in order to start the repairs the following morning. Everything seems to go on smoothly until Laura hears a sound that comes from outside and gets louder and louder in 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, when Laura intends to leave the house which hides an obscure secret and she hopes to leave unharmed.”
