I just received the new English subtitled trailer and teaser poster art for La Casa Muda (The Silent House), the film from Uruguay that I’ve posted about. Apparently after the original trailer was released some Hollywood types came sniffing around and showed interest in it. Whether that means an actual U.S. release or what they did with [Rec.], releasing the remake, Quarantine, to U.S. audiences first, I don’t know. Personally, I’m really excited about this film. The concept of a film being shot in one continuous take intrigues me. There is something about a film being done in real-time that adds a sense of immediacy, and I can only see that adding to the tension of the film. So here we go, here is the brand new English subtitled trailer, poster art and film maker’s synopsis for The Silent House a.k.a. La Casa Muda!
“Laura ( Florencia Colucci) and her father ( Gustavo Alonso) settle down in a cottage which seems to be off the beaten track in order to update it since its owner ( Abel Tripaldi) will soon put the house on sale. They will spend the night there in order to start the repairs the following morning. Everything seems to go on smoothly until Laura hears a sound that comes from outside and gets louder and louder in 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, when Laura intends to leave the house which hides an obscure secret and she hopes to leave unharmed.
REAL FEAR IN REAL TIME, this is the most remarkable underlying feature of the film which will not go unnoticed by all those who may be willing to experience this different and disturbing filming experience.”
