If this one-shot approaches imposes a strict unity of time and place on Hernandez's film, nonetheless the story will prove to be no more straight than the house is silent

A quick, fluid, scary tale that makes up for in quiet chills what it lacks in slam-bang craziness.

The catch of this Uruguayan horror film is its structure, one continuous shot that takes us through a perplexing tale of disturbance, murder and madness.

has found a way not only to suggest a gimmick successfully carried through, but also to weave that gimmick into a richer thematic tapestry.

Ambition can definitely detract from a project's bigger picture. The Silent House actually thrives on is aspirations.

Reminiscent of the breathless right-behind-you tension of Ils (Them), full of playful reveals and made all the eerier by Hernán González's classically ominous score.

...a passable cinematic experiment that does reward the viewer's patience on a relatively consistent basis.

The image of its heroine standing in silhouette in a doorway, unsure of whether to cross over, is quite simply the most iconic horror image of the year.

This is London

The chief wonder of this horror, directed by Gustavo Hernández, is that it was filmed with a digital camera in one single shot.

If you are a fan of atmosphere-led, low-budget horror in the vein of Paranormal Activity then this is a worthy watch.

Gustavo Hernández's one-take Uruguayan horror is daring and technically well-executed, but its plot clichés creak like old floorboards.

There's no doubt about it: this is a smart, scary film and a technical tour de force with its own skin-crawling atmosphere of fear.

It's essentially an art film, so don't go expecting Paranormal Activity.

Cranks up the tension with fluid, choreographed camera moves and unnerving off-screen sounds.

Até consegue criar um ou outro momento memorável, mas, de modo geral, é tristemente medíocre, jamais fazendo jus ao preciosismo técnico com que foi concebido.

The stylistic angle comes off as a gimmick used to occupy the viewers' attention and keep them from stopping to think about how flimsy the script is.
