Exclusive: The Silent House Clip
It's behind you!

30 March 2011  |  Written by Phil de Semlyen

You don't have to have seen too many horror movies to know that that strange banging noise coming from upstairs probably isn't a bundle of fluffy bunny rabbits trampolining around your attic. In fact, chances are it's some kind of she-devil looking to slaughter its way back to the underworld or a dybbuk looking for a Coen brothers movie.

Either way, the moral is: let someone else deal with it. Alas, it's a lesson completely lost on the father and daughter pair at the heart of impressively creepy horror The Silent House.

The soon-to-be-terrorised twosome have travelled to a rental house in a remote part of the Uruguyan countryside. There they're troubled by a noise emanating first from outside, then from upstairs. As you can tell from this clip, dad's (Gustavo Alonso) decision to investigate doesn't end well and Laura (Florencia Colucci) is left to run for it.

If you need to up the scare quotient any, bear in mind that The Silent House is based on events that actually took place in a remote Uruguyan village in the 1950s. Which means that it's all true. Or at least some of it.

Read Empire's review here or see it flesh... sorry, fresh from April 8 or you could wait for the inevitable Hollywood remake, coming soon. But preferably (a) or (b).
