One of the films surrounded in opening weekend buzz here at Sundance is the horror film 'Silent House (read our review) from the filmmaking duo of Chris Kentis and Laura Lau, whose 'Open Water' probably scarred you from going into the ocean for a good while. If 'Open Water' proved anything about Kentis and Lau, it was that they were masters at creating suspense and captivating an audience -- and in 'Silent House' they're right back at it again; this time upping the ante by attempting to film an entire feature in one continuous shot.
Probably the most ambitious piece of filmmaking in the festival, 'Silent House' definitely succeeds in what it sets out to do, and the audience we experienced it with were jumping, shouting and just plain having a good time getting their scare on.
We sat down with Kentis and Lau for five minutes to talk about the logistics of shooting a film in one shot, why it's been so long since we've seen a film from them, and what's up with those 'Open Water' sequels.
