Paranormal activity is not a new thing when it comes to film however a movie where somebody is investigating not only the phenomenon but how somebody goes about and fakes it are few and far between, over the last few years though this kind of film seems to crop up once in a while with the Awakening which was released last year doing it very well.  So can Buried director Rodrigo Cortes bring his tension filled film making that he had with his last film to the paranormal genre and give it a bit of a shake up that it really needs or is this just another bog standard walk in the park.

Trailer: Silent House

Trapped inside her family’s lakeside retreat, a young woman descends into madness.

First Impression: A remake of a very unknown Spanish film this see’s Elizabeth Olsen (the youngest of the olsen sisters) cementing herself as a indie actress to look out for in 2012 as she also has another movie that i can’t wait for coming out called Martha Marcy May Marlene.  This looks really tense and if it fully sticks to the original then it’s one to watch out for

A little fact for you this and the original is shot on one continuous shot to give a 88 minute film that is done in one go
