My attention was held for the first act or so. Then any attempt at realism was abandoned, and it became clear that the house, and the movie containing it, were devices to manufacture methodical thrills.
"Silent House" just isn't scary. The only reason to keep watching is to see if they screw up the tracking shot, and leave the boo boo in without stopping. Ultimately I was bored and didn't really care after the first 15 minutes.
