I thought it was nicely made especially the beginning and had a clever emphasis on sound. It wasn’t the best written film ever but it did the job as a good, stupid horror film.
It was excruciatingly annoying in parts but I think that was the point.
It won’t win any awards for acting or screenplay but it was fun and stands up against most modern, boring horrors.
It reminded me of ‘Don’t Breathe’ which was a really good film too as it took modern horror conventions and played with them in a different way as the main characters had to struggle with the loss of an important sense.
**Inside and outside, a cat-mouse game!**
A limited cast film. One night event. The whole film was shot within the three weeks. Minimised dialogues, maximised actions. This film has such a good record those. But apart from the performances and settings, there’s nothing special. The same old home-invasion concept with so many flaws. If you are looking for nothing but an entertainment, then this will provide you that. But you should not expect more than that, it will foil you from having a nice time with the film. I enjoyed it too, though when it comes to the rating, I should be honest.
Maddie, an authoress who lost hearing and voice in her childhood is now living in a remote place, somewhat isolated from the people. On an ordinary day, unexpectedly, a masked man who killed her neighbour, is now after Maddie too. When she comes to realise that, the cat and mouse game begins. She locked herself inside. On the other hand the stranger trying to get in. As it goes like that for hours, so many twists and turns take place. How the remaining tale would turn out is should be watched.
Simpleness was the highlight. They did not try too much. Particularly, for a thriller like this, they usually scare the viewers with sudden and loud sounds. This film had those, but minimised. You can’t blame for isolated settings too, because such crimes can be easily committed on those backdrops. It’s all about Kate Siegel. Her best film, according to me. Nice direction, from one of the latest horror flick maker. But this is not a horror film. It is a terror, a thriller. Short running time and it is worth a try.
An OK thriller with some interesting aspects.
Let us start with the fact that this is not a horror movie. It’s a thriller, with some interesting unusual aspects, as well as a few cringe-worthy flaws (in character logic, as the case always seems to be).
So what makes this movie stand out and feel almost fresh? The obvious first is that our protagonist is deaf-mute. Not being an expert on deaf people, I still believe this was played quite consistently to the movie’s credit. It is interesting to occupy the head space of someone missing such an important sense in a frightful situation.
Another thing I noticed is the total lack of jump scares. There isn’t a single jump-scare in the movie, which only further distances Hush from being a horror movie. In fact the usual creep factor as a whole is kept to a minimum. It quickly becomes a cat-and-mouse kind of battle of wits more than anything else, which I found a pleasant surprise, despite being more of a horror fanatic.
The third curious thing is that from the get go it’s made clear that the killer is very much human. We don’t know what his motivations are, he’s just out to kill and doesn’t give much of a s*** about anything else but his upper hand. He doesn’t have much of a plan and has to improvise, as does our protagonist to survive.
I found the thrill in this movie to be more intellectual than primal. The gore is neither profuse nor lacking, it’s there when it’s needed. It’s well shot, acted, directed and edited, considering the modest budget, and doesn’t overstay its welcome. I’d recommend it for a rainy evening if you want to see the thriller genre try something new.
Worst movie I’ve seen in a long time
After reading the reviews I think I watched a different movie. This movie was so bad that I had to join IMDb to leave this review. I know the home invasion movies require the characters to make stupid decisions but there has to be a limit to the stupidity. Also, crossbows aren’t that hard to load, but if she can’t load it she could always just stab the guy with a bolt during any one of the many opportunities she was given. Her boyfriend believed some guy with no badge and no uniform with a neck tattoo was a cop? Give me a break! She finally stabs him in the leg and runs away because why not leave the crazed maniac alive to come after you some more? She made so many bad decisions I was rooting for the douchiest home invading killer in movie history. I couldn’t let other people get fooled by these reviews into thinking this was a good movie the way that I did.Avoid at all cost.
