I WAS ONE OF THE THREE PEOPLE WHO SAW DEAD
SILENCE IN A MOVIE THEATER.
I don’t know how you make a movie about crazy ventriloquist puppets and it not be scary, but they sure as fuck did.
The movie was lame, the puppets were lame, and the ending was so lame I instinctively turned and punched the guy sitting next to me in the throat. Since that guy was my father, it was a bit awkward. Until now, I blamed James Wan and Leigh Whannell, but come to find out, Hollywood dipped its shit-stained finger in the cinematic soup. Honestly, I can’t say I’m surprised, but it’s fascinating to read the shenanigans behind this piece of garbage.
That said, I’m not a fan of Whannell or Wan. Movies like SAW and INSIDIOUS just didn’t do it for me. But I gotta respect two guys who love the genre and work hard to put their ideas onscreen. The outcome is a whole different discussion altogether.
