Profile of Dead Silence

The mood of Dead Silence is scary, suspenseful, and tense. The plot centers around ghosts, being haunted by the past, and vengeance. It is a thriller, horror, and mystery movie. Stylistically, Dead Silence involves twists and turns and is gory. In approach, it is serious. It takes place, at least partly, in a small town. Dead Silence is set in the USA. It happens in contemporary times. It is especially suggested for teens and a date night. Note that Dead Silence includes profanity and violent content.

Critics Reviews

The Onion (A.V. Club)
Again coaxing the worst imaginable performances out of his actors (see also: Cary Elwes and Danny Glover in "Saw"), Wan casts charisma-free unknown Ryan Kwanten as a young married man whose small-town past catches up to him.

TV Guide
There are no two ways about it: A chubby-cheeked dummy doing stuff it shouldn't be doing is spooky stuff. But Wan isn't on such sure footing with his actors -- Wahlberg is stilted as the tough-guy cop, and Kwanten is blandly uninteresting.

a little boring. Could've used another main character. The "twist" ending was hardly important to the movie at all, considering the people involved were barely in the movie. It was like "Oh yeah, remember these people who were in the begining of the...
