Tagline: You scream. You die.
Synopsis: “Jamie Ashen and his wife, Lisa, receive a rather odd package in the mail: a ventriloquist doll. Shortly after its arrival, Lisa is found dead. A solemn Jamie must travel back to his hometown of Raven’s Fair to find answers and to stop the evil presence that pursues him. All he must do on his journey to discover the truth is stay dead silent. If he doesn’t, his tongue will then belong to the long since dead spirit of the very thing that took Lisa and is now coming after him: the ghost of Mary Shaw.” source
No one would expect me to love DEAD SILENCE…
Because I loathe dolls. Puppets too. And clowns give me the willies, big time! Why, then, do I love DEAD SILENCE? Simple. That’s the fun of horror movies! Having the bejesus scared outta you from the safety of your couch. Plus, James Wan is an expert at using sound and light (or lack thereof) to ratchet up the scares to near perfection. So even if this film is built around one of my biggest fears, I had to watch it, buy it, and now re-watch it every couple years … with anything even resembling a doll locked up in storage, in the basement.
