Speak No Evil
Directed by Christian Tafdrup
One family accepts an invitation to the rural home of another they met on holiday, only to find their lives altered in unexpected, deeply horrifying ways. From director Christian Tafdrup, SPEAK NO EVIL glides from from "squirmy to sinister to full-on shocking" (NY Times). A SHUDDER ORIGINAL
One family accepts an invitation to the rural home of another, where their lives are altered in unexpected, deeply horrifying ways.
Cast: Morten Burian, Sidsel Siem Koch, Redja van Huet, Karina Smulders
Fedja van Huet took every chance to make us uncomfortable. The horror is at its best when immersed and someone is constantly overstepping your boundaries yet you cant remove yourself without turning the movie off. While much can be guessed early on this movie still nonetheless does tension well.
This is a movie about how not to be a victim by choice.
went into this movie cold, not knowing anything about it. I found it riveting (kept me on the edge of my seat); frustrating (you just wanted to shake the characters for their stupid naivete!) and deeply disturbing (thinking about the ending its just so heavy) LOVED it.
lots of great building tension, but like most other reviewers have said the choices the protagonists make are frustrating. i wish they had put up a bit more of a fight, but maybe that's just my american sensibilities. enjoyed the ride, but i probably won't watch it again.
So Boring. Terribly BORING!!
