This movie comes to us from James Wan…the man responsible for SAW. That was an excellent movie and its serquels were awesome as well which brings me to say that this movie right here is unbelievable. Dead Silence is actually quite scary…it made me jump a few times and Billy Shaw (the dummy) was very creepy. Watch this movie the way it was meant to be watched…in the dark…on a widescreen tv with the sound cranked up. There are some homages to the movie SAW such as the opening…the creaking of the balcony sounds like Jigsaws puppets bicycle and also the music by Charlie Clouser sounds like a reworked theme of SAW. This film drips with horror and a dark atmosphere. One of the best horror movies I've seen in a long time. Id give it a 9 out of 10. Cant wait for M.r Wan's next film!
