Effective Spanish haunted house horror

The Silent House review

The boom in Spanish language horror gets a creditable new entry with this Uruguayan chiller.

A father and daughter show up at an isolated old house to do some repairs; strange noises soon come from upstairs.

Director Gustavo Hernández manages to shoot the subsequent nightmare in one take (or so he’d have us believe), which prompts not only some creative camerawork but a palpable sense of mounting dread.

Newcomer Florencia Colucci deserves credit, too, for her real-time plunge from normality to blind terror.
