movie watch: DEAD SILENCE January 24, 2007Posted by patrick.klepek in dolls, humor, movies.
Director: James Wan (Saw)
Release: March 23, 2007
Saw was terribly overrated but strikingly original. while i haven’t seen Saw II, i intend on seeing it so that ms. tetris and myself can indulge in the third — outside of the acting and sometimes MTV-ish cinematography, Saw worked. but, really, i’m more interested in what the writer-director from the original, james wan, has cooked up with Dead Silence.
you can jump straight to the trailer or check out the following synopsis:
“Newlyweds Jamie (Ryan Kwanten) and Lisa Ashen have established a new life for themselves far from their hometown of Ravens Fair—a sleepy, near-forgotten blip on the map haunted by late-night whispers and ghost stories from generations past. But when his wife is gruesomely murdered, Jamie reluctantly returns to Ravens Fair for the funeral, intent on unraveling the mystery surrounding her death. Once back under his family’s roof, reunited with his ill father (Bob Gunton) and his father’s new young bride (Amber Valletta), Jamie begins to explore the creepy town and encounters the legend of Mary Shaw, a famous murdered ventriloquist whose presence still casts a pall over Ravens Fair. Himself the lead suspect in his wife’s murder, Jamie is forced to dig deep into the town’s bloody past for answers, where he soon uncovers the truth behind the curse that ended Lisa’s life…and threatens to take his as well.”
