Dead Silence is the new horror movie from the Saw creators James Wan and Leigh Whannell and it looks really cool. I love the atmosphere and the set design that the trailer evokes and just as Filmstalker points out, it’s creepily effective in a Silent Hill sort of way.
Now Silent Hill I wasn’t a fan of at all, but the movie had some wicked set designs and is the first horror in a long time to have a geninue creepy atmosphere about it.
So the idea of Dead Silence then, is that a creepy ventriloquist’s doll has come to life and starts murdering people, usually taking out their tongues so they can’t talk anymore.
As usual with horror movies, in all likelihood the film will suck but will entice people in with this really great trailer. Hell, it might have succeeded in nabbing my money already.
Any thoughts? Is the idea of a dummy murderer to silly for you to comprehend or has the trailer worked on you too?
