Dead Silence (2007) Review:
Three years after the first Saw, James Wan directed this very enjoyable piece of horror, letting everyone know that he will be one of the modern directors to watch for in the future (this was largely confirmed by Insidious three years later, and the recent The Conjuring).
The story of Mary Shaw presented here is relatively basic here and should look familiar to you since it is a lot like many other ghost horror films, with its good points but also its clichés. The way it is directed, however, makes it stand a little above the mass. As in his other films, James Wan manages to build that creepy atmosphere that makes his film so scary (but do not expect anything as good as Insidious or The Conjuring). Quite a few jumpy scares come to flesh out the scare.
The concept may lack originality, but the film plays relatively well on the unexplained fear of puppets that most people have. A good surprise overall, I recommend it.
