|Mary Shaw, a mad ventriloquist who wants to create the perfect doll, even from beyond the grave; succeeds in as nasty a way as possible...|
One of the few truly original horror films to come out in recent years (thus ensuring it flopped in theatres), Wan's Dead Silence manages to create a nasty mythology in its tale. Visually memorable and grisly, but could benefit from some stronger leads. Wahlberg in particular ruins the tone of the iflm with his lame scenery chewing. ~ Dave Wright.
Director James Wan takes a break from the Saw series to helm this dark tale of animated ventriloquist dummies. Visually sumptuous horror nastiness from a director who knows the power of creepy dolls. Donnie Wahberg and Amber Valleta star. ~ Wearysloth
