SILENCE...BUT DEADLY??

THIS LATEST ATTEMPT to SCARE the CRAP OUT of MOVIE-GOERS by RECYCLING OLD MOVIE PLOTS and GIVING 'EM a 21st CENTURY (READ ULTRA-GORY) SPIN HAS MANAGED INSTEAD to STRIKE MANY CRITICS' and MOVIE FANS' FUNNY BONES. THINK FREDDY KRUGER PLAYED by CHARLIE McCARTHY, AND YOU'LL UNDERSTAND WHY...

I had found ad for Dead Silnce where it says here Billy Talk which by the way is The Puppet name does he sound evil yet any ways you can make him talk by typing in a Question, and he will repeat it what funny about this ad is when speaks he sounds like he inviting you to have with Tea & Crumpits in The Polor Room I thought to myself at least Chucky had Evil Laugh when Killed you maybe the only thing from this puppet is boring to death with old stories or some thing.

*Sorry, but I have NO IDEA what you are trying to say?

I don't think this should be nominated for a Razzie. The worst I've heard about this movie was that it was stupid, except for the ending. Many people said it was scary, but that it wasn't that bad...

If Dead Silence does get a Razzie nod I guess it'll be the second time we'll be Razzing a Dummy. The first was in 2004, when the Worst Actor Razzie went to George W. Bush.

Wow! Two dummies in a span of four years...what are the odds??

If we do think this is a real Razzie possibility, it could get a nod as Worst Rip Off, due to the puppets looking a lot like those in a Goosebumps book...

I agree about the Goosebumps book, called Night Of The Living Dummies. There are actually 3 of them, and here's the cover from the first one.

So it could be Worst Rip Off of Magic, Puppetmaster, Child's Play and the Goosebumps books...

I think Anthony Hopkins, Ann-Margret (my love), the late Burgess Merideth, and anyone else for that matter would be furious to find out that they took a good movie like "Magic" and turned it into a great, big pile of dog s**t!!!!!!!!!!

Worst Remake Or Rip-Off PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I liked this, and thought it was better than "Magic" (which somehow has a high score at RT).

Ok. Seen it and didn't like it. Boring movie and the only good part is the surprise ending. If you would like to see yourself torture through the whole movie for the ending, be my guest.

My review: 


THIS MOVIE'S QUALITY WILL "SILENCE" YOU UNTIL YOU'RE "DEAD"(**/*****)  


Spoilers ahead!  


It's hard not to compare it to the SAW movies, also created by James Wan and Leigh Wannell. Those movies are more gory than scary, but their scripts are very smart(mostly the first 3, which Wannell wrote). This movie it's the other way around. The directing is very good when it comes to angles,shots and creating suspense. Unfortunately,the script is bad. 

Aside from the fact evil puppets isn't new,the story how MARY SHAW died is too similar to how FREDDY KRUGER died. 

After most of the mystery is revealed,the movie drags on for about 30 minutes only for us to discover the rest of the mystery,which is boring. Whannell's twist ending(which seems to be a trade mark)was creative,but not shocking because at that point it's hard to still be interested in the movie.

Talk about a movie so under the radar that no one cared about it!

The only good thing in this movie is the twist ending. The twist, I'll admit, is really good, but other than that, it's a boring movie.

A good movie, a twist ending does not make.

Well, if it's a BAD movie, then the directing was that good then. Perhaps you mean good cinematography in a bad movie.
