Silence is an adaptation of a Poe short story that is rather difficult to follow. If understood correctly, a vengeful spirit haunts a remarried man and his wife during a restless night.
Though this film features a bit of a spook at the end, it is lackluster throughout. If the storytelling was easier to follow, then the film would have been overly simple and generic, without much of a plot to be found. With the vagaries and confusion present, however, keeping a handle on the sequence of events is quite a task.
In a film festival climate where it was viewed, Silence is ultimately not very memorable.
This Film was screened at the 2012 Atlanta Horror Film Festival.
