Not too long ago, I told you a bit about a new Uruguayan film called 'La Casa Muda' (the Silent House). The details on this indie flick were scarce. The vermin over at Dread Central, however, have uncovered a few more tidbits, straight from the proverbial horse's mouth, it would seem. For one, we have a properly translated and particularly compelling synopsis:
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.
As the promotional images proclaim, it's 'Real Fear in Real Time', so I'm sold. I'll at least give this one a shot. Trying something new, even if it's a colossal failure, wins big points with me. Can any of you think of a real time horror film?
Oh, and check below the jump for a nice little teaser.
