"Real Fear, in Real Time" with Uruguay's The Silent House (La Casa Muda)

Filmed entirely on one professional photo camera in one continuous 72 minute sequence, The Silent House (La Casa Muda) is being compared to the likes of [REC] and Paranormal Activity.  The comparison with these films may come from the format and the shakiness of the camera shots.  From the little shown in the trailer and the synopsis, the plot feels more like The Strangers.  The look and feel of this movie is dark and foreboding and we can't wait for the chance to see it.  Visit the official website here.

Synopsis pulled from Dread Central:
Laura (Florencia Colucci) and her father Wilson (Gustavo Alonso) settle down in a cottage that seems to be off the beaten track in order to update it since its owner (Abel Tripaldi) will soon put the house up for sale. They will spend the night there in order to start the repairs the following morning. Everything seems to go smoothly until Laura hears a sound that comes from outside and gets louder and louder on the upper floor of the house. Wilson goes up to see what is going on while she remains downstairs on her own, waiting for her father to come down. The plot is based on a true story that happened some time ago in a small village in Uruguay. La Casa Muda focuses on the last seventy-eight minutes, second by second, while Laura attempts to leave the house, which hides an obscure secret, unharmed.
