Keeping the vein of Paranormal Activity comes the Latin American movie “La Casa Muda” or “The Silent House”. What’s unique about this one, besides it’s $6,000 budget, is the fact that it is billed as being one continuous shot… for 72 minutes! Now obviously they aren’t going to admit it, but I have a feeling that this was not shot as one continuous shot, but rather made to look it through the use of creative editing. It also claims to be based on a true story, but then again what movie isn’t these days… So give the trailer a look and let us know what you think. I’m kind of excited for this one after watching the trailer and yes, it’s because of that 72 minute continuous shot marketing… I’m not sure when it’s supposed to come out, but you can read the plot synopsis below.

Laura (Florencia Colucci) and her father Wilson (Gustavo Alonso) settle down in a cottage that seems to be off the beaten track in order to update it since its owner (Abel Tripaldi) will soon put the house up for sale. They will spend the night there in order to start the repairs the following morning. Everything seems to go smoothly until Laura hears a sound that comes from outside and gets louder and louder on the upper floor of the house. Wilson goes up to see what is going on while she remains downstairs on her own, waiting for her father to come down. The plot is based on a true story that happened some time ago in a small village in Uruguay. La Casa Muda focuses on the last seventy-eight minutes, second by second, while Laura attempts to leave the house, which hides an obscure secret, unharmed.

REAL FEAR IN REAL TIME is the most remarkable underlying feature of the film, which will not go unnoticed by all those who may be willing to experience this different and disturbing filming experience.
