New options for your home viewing this week:

Here is a relentless thriller about a young woman walking, running , exploring, and cowering throughout the various hallways and rooms of a house that is under assault by a man, a group of people, or some thing.  Silent House gives the illusion of one, seemingly unbroken take to capture Sarah (Elizabeth Olsen) trying to escape the man/men/thing chasing after her, making it a technically savvy and ingenious film on top of the that it’s genuinely, chillingly frightening.  The neat use of sound (We often hear things behind a wall as the camera hold on it) and Olsen’s performance help a lot, too.  My review is here.  Available on DVD and Blu-ray.
