I loved the basic plot idea, its mordant minimalism inspired by surviving Polaroid photos from an actual crime scandal. But the execution is faltering and the murkiness relentless.

Cinema em Cena

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.

What promises to be a pure candyfloss ghost-train ride filled with ominous noises, creaks and shadows ends with a silly twist that's much more likely to raise eyebrows than goosebumps.

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.

Hernández certainly deserves kudos for making such a good-looking film for no money, but budget limitations are no excuse for sloppy, nonsensical writing.

[An] occasionally jolting but largely unconvincing Uruguayan horror flick...

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

Fan The Fire

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.

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.

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

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

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

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

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

A flawed but fascinating experiment.

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.

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

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