I haven't been so frustrated while watching a movie in ages...
Mike Flanagan is an incredibly talented horror director but this film, whilst competently made, is (whisper it) boring and familiar.
A deaf writer in a secluded area finds herself fighting for her life against a killer who likes to play head games with his victims. Hush is a well made edge of your seat thriller. Kate Siegel is excellent especially. The only weak thing about it is the killer. While he is perfectly played by John Gallagher Jr. as a real scum bag. We don't get much answers about him other then he is there and he is dangerous. Still Hush is one of the best survival films you could watch. If you liked You're Next; you should definitely check out Hush.
A real nail biter, edge of your seat survival thriller movie. Brilliant performance by Kate Siegel! I love how Maddie wasn't saved by anyone but herself. How much balls she had, truly badass and clever thinking. Though she had two earlier windows to kill her attacker, still, fierce, badass woman with true survival instincts kicking in.
It's a game of cat and mouse, but while it proceeds as expected in the grand scheme - killer stalking a victim who tries to stay a step ahead - the thrills are in the details.
This one didn't live up to the hype, IMO, but home invasion movies almost never bug me. I thought it was a well-done film though. I can see how someone with different fears would be very spooked afterward. The pace is steady throughout the whole film but the conclusion was anticlimatic. 7.5/10 stars.
An interesting movie but kinda boring. I wish they would of leaned more into sound and her being deaf in the second half. Still it is a decent watch if you want to see a different take on a home invasion horror.
Scénario vraiment décevant sans aucune originalité, tueur qui tue, on ignore tout de sa raison. Déroulement et dénouement on ne peut plus banal, bref, un film sans intérêt.
So we waste like one hour and a half and end up not getting any sort of motive or anything.not that it was awful, but the jump scares and silenced to force the nervousness in the plot were just... eh.
The film was entertaining, but it lacked many things.
I forgot when was the last time I watched a horror movie. Are horror movies nowadays supposed to be that slow? Why he keeps going around the house, looking and tapping the windows instead of breaking the glasses with the bow?
I won't say the movie was great but it wasn't too bad. It must be difficult to act for the crying without a sound and scare without a scream.
Film che ha un'ottima trama ma che viene sviluppato male risultando noioso e pesante. Sconsigliato da vedere scende veramente lentamente
No fucking way she had the strength to stab him at the end, lol. A dumb thriller.
It came with an extremely original idea. The idea itself was fairly decently executed, though I can't really say that it was perfect and it had no room for improvement. Just the opposite. Too brutal, too unbelievable sometimes, overall, though, a very decent movie with great performances and an interesting plot-twist that cannot be found in every other horror movie. But it would be a lie if I said that it was the most brilliant and most innovative idea in the history of movie production. There may not have been many but it certainly wasn't the first one to come with the whole mute-deaf character situation.
They could have explored her deafness a little more.
I watched for Kate and John but i thinkit was insufficient .We can say not bad !,meh...
Squarely in my "not my thing" bin...
I enjoy watching a -thriller- movie that doesn't take easy way outs, and treats its viewer with respect. I don't know if it's as original as it looks, but if definitely felt fresh.
Movie is very hard and scary but in the same time interesting and exciting. So many scenes,for some time very long scenes. But okay. Nothing special for my taste.
I pretty much agree with @faithful. The movie has some competent scenes and tries to subvert certain tropes but it's far from perfect. The main selling point is that the victim is deaf and as such is vulnerable to his shenanigans but it wasn't utilized to the extend I'd wanted - be it technical or plot wise. I have to give props to Kate Siegel though as her acting was on point.I could rate this movie a 3 or a 4 as it is riddled with unbelievable events (and the key competent was too obvious) but neglecting that I was still entertained.Hopefully Netflix grabs horror movies more often now so they're quicker out of the festival runs :).
