The Silence

The Silence by John R. Leonetti centers on Tim Lebbon’s novel, which grew from a similar idea to A Quiet Place. The Silence follows a Deaf adolescent, portrayed by Kiernan Shipka and her loved ones as they try to find sanctuary in a world under siege by creatures who utilize sound to pursue their prey. They become involved with a cult, unbeknownst to them. Shipka is undeniably skilled. However, The Silence was widely panned for putting a hearing actor in a deaf role, as well as Shipka’s non-native American Sign Language talents. Despite its flaws, The Silence is a thrilling adventure starring Stanley Tucci, John Corbett, and Miranda Otto from Shipka’s Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.

Ouija: Origin of Evil

Mike Flanagan had already established himself as a reliable horror director by 2016, but the notion of “holy crap, this guy can do anything” was cemented when he took on a prequel to a critically-panned picture about an evil Ouija board and turned it into one of the scariest films of the last decade. In the aftermath of her husband’s death, false psychic Alice Zander (Elizabeth Reaser) and her two children, Lina (Annalise Basso) and Doris (Lulu Wilson) hold seances for paying people in the 1970s. Doris, the youngest, adds spice to the performance by introducing a cursed object, but the cursed item not only transfers a dark soul into the body of the young girl but also reveals the deep-seated evil embedded in the Zander’s home. To be clear, there is no justification for Ouija: Origin of Evil to be good at all, thus, it’s a complete surprise that it’s this terrifying and effective. And, since this is Flanagan, there’s also a powerful dramatic heart pounding beneath all those shocks in the night.

Texas Chainsaw Massacre

Netflix’s 2022 version of Texas Chainsaw Massacre is established 50 years after Leatherface’s (Mark Burnham) 1973 murdering spree, as a group of young businesspeople goes to Texas to auction off old homes and develop a trendy region. When they check what they thought was an abandoned orphanage, they discover it is occupied by an old woman called Ginny (Alice Krige) – and the legendary serial murderer, resulting in a deadly and horrific cat-and-mouse game. Though it doesn’t innovate the genre, Texas Chainsaw Massacre delivers all the gore and frights you’d expect from a slasher.
