Hush – Silence Can Be Killer

Hush Synopsis

In this heart-pounding thriller from acclaimed writer and director Mike Flanagan (Oculus, Before I Wake), silence takes on a terrifying new dimension for a young woman living along in the woods. Author Maddie Young (Kate Siegel) lives a life of utter isolation after losing her hearing as a teenager. She’s retreated form society, living in seclusion and existing in a completely silent world. But one night, the fragile world is shattered when the masked face of a psychotic killer appears in her window. Without another living soul for miles, and with no way to call for help, it appears that Maddie is at the killer’s mercy… but he may have underestimated his prey. As this horrifying game of cat and mouse escalates to a breathless fever-pitch, Maddie must push herself beyond her mental and physical limits in order to survive the night.

Hush Movie Review

Now a days it’s so hard to watch a horror movie without it feeling like something you’ve watched a thousand times, with Hush I must say it felt original.

Couldn’t imagine how scary it must be to face the world day in and day out without ever hearing a single sound, not knowing if something or someone is walking up behind you, or breathing over your shoulder. But the main character of this film Maddie was pretty fearless in the face of a killer.

The only thing I wish they explained in this movie, was what is the killers motive. You are given no reason throughout the entire movie of why this man killed the people he did and why he is after Maddie. I mean you get the gist of why he is after her, it’s because of the neighbor Sarah running to Maddie for help when she is being attacked, but why was he hunting Sarah?

Rating: Hush 4 out of 5
