Sundance 2011 adds a new horror to its roster: The Silent House. The indie chiller is a remake of a Uruguayan film, La Casa Muda, and comes to us from the team behind Open Water, Chris Kentis and Laura Lau. More details after the jump.
The film focuses on the descent into madness of a girl who is helping her father restore an isolated, decrepit cottage. Like the original, The Silent House is one continuous shot, unfolding in real time. Elizabeth Olsen (sister to Mary-Kate and Ashley) stars. Sundance will mark the film's premiere. It will show out-of-competition, during the fest's Midnight series.
