Critic Reviews:

The story itself is wickedly entertaining. It’s essentially taking a campfire ghost story and expanding it into a feature length movie, which is something many horror films don’t do.


As its title suggests, Dead Silence is hardly a raucous affair. Though it does rely on some typical loud jumps here and there, it’s mostly a slow build that trades in the (ahem) buzz saw approach of Wan’s first film for a more subtle one.


Dead Silence makes use of impact scares, stylish editing, and the haunting score talents of Charlie Clouser. In a sense it’s a ghost story AND happens to make use of some scary dolls to its effect.
