The Sundance Institute announced today that Chris Kentis and Laura Lau, the filmmakers behind the 2004 Sundance sensation Open Water, will return to the Sundance Film Festival with their next feature film — Silent House will have its world premiere in the out-of-competition Park City at Midnight section. The movie, directed by Kentis and Lau based on a screenplay by Lau, is described as “A hauntingly choreographed descent into madness based on the Uruguayan film La Casa Muda.” This “enthralling psychological thriller” is “impressively captured with a continuous camera shot.”
You might recall that I wrote about a film at the 2010 Cannes Film Festival, Gustavo Hernández’s “The Slient House” which was a haunted house horror film which took place all within one 79-minute continous shot (read my review here). This movie is an American remake of that film (note: the iamge above is from the original movie). Read the full press release after the jump.
