Vits:

1.) I've already mentioned several times that I hate True Blood.

2.) The character is sleazy, but Wahlberg seems to be playing him as a regular cop.

3.) Not unless you thought it was possible. Wouldn't Jaime smell the rotting flesh?

Ryan Kwanten is also good in TRUE BLOOD. No, I don't mean "good" as in "looks good shirtless". I mean his acting.

How so?

After watching the movie, I started to wonder if a human doll like that is actually possible. Does that make me stupid?

Ignore my comment on the last page about the film.

I will say that of all the films this month, this one scared me the most. However, that has literally nothing to do with James Wan and everything to do with ventriquist dummies being creepy as Hell.

When the dummies aren't on-screen the film is incredibly boring. And even when they're on-screen, the film is unintentionally funny at times. Specifically, the end where a bunch of dummies attack the main character and the cop. Ryan Kwanten as bland as Jamie, the main character. He's not as good as he was in VENOM: #TRUTHINJOURNALISM. Now that was an awesome short film. The director of it, Joe Lynch, was in the same room as me when I watched it. He's an awesome guy, I got an autograph from him. What's that? A review of Dead Silence? Oh yeah.

Donnie Wahlberg gives a weird performance as the cop. The character is a total douche, but Wahlberg doesn't seem to realize that. The script for this film is incredibly dumb. It's not scary in the least and the only reason I was creeped out at all was because I'm afraid of ventriloquist dummies. If it was about something that I found less scary, I'd be angrier with the film. And let's not get into that stupid, stupid, stupid twist! Seriosuly, a human doll! Now, you know what had an awesome twist: VENOM: #TRUTHINJOURNALISM.

VENOM: #TRUTHINJOURNALISM is available to watch on YouTube, so get busy. Grade: C

Next-up: Godzilla: Final Wars!

That's what I mean, the shots and angles are the director of photography's choices, and the director-director simply okays the choices made. So the DP is the one to thank for the good visuals.

Yeah, that's cinematography. If everything looks good on screen, that's the director of photography's doing. If everything else about the movie is bad, that's the director/writer/producer's fault.

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

A good movie, a twist ending does not make.

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.

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

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.

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.

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

I used to love "Goosebumps" when I was a kid.
