Hush (2016)

Posted 07/10/2016 by Edward Davies in Horror

Starring : Kate Siegel, John Gallagher Jr, Michael Trucco, Samantha Sloyan
Director : Mike Flanagan
Running Time : 83 mins

Madison ‘Maddie’ Young (Siegel) is a deaf author who lives in an isolated cottage where she writes her novels, but when a masked man (Gallagher) attacks and murders her neighbour Sarah (Sloyan), she finds herself in danger for her life.

This is actually a pretty clever movie, which despite what you might think isn’t completely silent. We get snatches of Maddie’s world as she comes under attack from the masked man, but on the whole we are more in the place of the perpetrator as she tries to fight him off, and we suffer the same fate as he does as Maddie tries to get the better of him. Fans of classic horror flicks that don’t have monsters in them will enjoy this, but if you prefer slashers then this probably isn’t for you.

Verdict : 8/10
