Trailer Of The Week - Week #3 - The Silent House and The Silent House

A tale of two trailers this week for Trailer Of The Week, as the marketing push for the US remake of Uruguayan film The Silent House starts to come into effect. Both trailers are presented below for a compare and contrast exercise and if you think that the second one comes out on top, then you're wrong. The house isn't as grubby and doesn't feel as claustrophobic, the lighting is way off and there's more screaming than Florencia Colucci made for the entire length of the original. It's meant to be a 'Silent' house. Shush. Given the original's problematic and slightly senseless ending and the fact that US remakes typically seek to explain everything even further any way, hopes are not particularly high.

Trailer Of The Week is a regular Film Intel feature which picks a different tasty trailer of delectable goodness every week and presents it on Sunday for your viewing pleasure. Sometimes old, sometimes new, sometimes major, sometimes independent, sometimes brilliant, sometimes a load of old bobbins: always guaranteed to entertain.
