Dead Silence (Aiden & Charlie Clouser)

Dead Silence has been playing in the local cinemas the past week and I managed to catch it, not really on the big screen but rather on DVD. 🙂

Back when I was a kid, two things freaked me out. Firstly, paid-by-the-hour clowns roaming the shopping centres being ‘friendly’ to children and the other, ventriloquists with their wooden puppets. I recall watching our local ventriloquist Victor Khoo and his talking puppet Charlee, on television and simply believing that puppet was pure evil.

Dead Silence was directed by James Wan and written by Leigh Whannel, the same duo responsible for Saw and its sequels. Overall, the movie trudged along with a few shock elements. I was actually losing interest and feeling awfully stupid for bothering to watch a movie about evil puppets. However, there was an interesting twist towards the end albeit fastly delivered in true James Wan style.

The main character’s childhood song in the movie says it all.

Beware the stare of Mary Shaw.

She had no children, only dolls.

And if you see her, do not scream.

Or she’ll reap your tongue out at the seam.

Strangely, I may just watch it again to find the signs leading to the surprise ending.
