Movie Info

During her valedictorian address at her high school graduation, Renata Devereaux (Shanee Edwards) makes a startling confession: She's killed a fellow student. In flashbacks, she tells the story of how she came to accidentally drown a student (Charles Newmark) who taunted her. After that drowning, Renata, who can't keep out of trouble, helps her friend Jodi (Cherilyn Hayres) get an abortion, but the citizens of her small town, seeing Renata on television during an abortion protest, think Renata was the one that was pregnant. Consequently, Renata and Jodi have a lesbian fling. Life with her ex-sheriff father (Danny Aiello) and Zen-obsessed mother (Sally Kirkland) takes a dramatic turn during all of this, but somehow Renata is still the class valedictorian. ~ Buzz McClain, Rovi

Although not a bad movie, it plays more like a series of sketches that someone might show to a producer with the idea that the producer would chose which one to develop.

Audience Reviews for Dead Silence

Dead Silence felt like it was never going to end. There was nothing frightening about this movie. Atleast there was an un-expected twist at the end.

The write up compared it to Twin Peaks -- Far from it... It was poorly made, and very uninteresting... Don't waste your time..
