The Silent House (UK) in August

Optimum have announced the UK DVD and Blu-ray Disc release of The Silent House on 1st August 2011. Directed by Gustavo Hernández and based on a true story that is alleged to have happened in a small village in Uruguay in the 1940s, The Silent House was filmed as one continuous tracking shot. The story follows Laura and her father as they begin work on renovating a sleepy country cottage that is due to be sold off by its owner. Everything seems to be going smoothly until Laura hears a sound from upstairs that gradually gets louder and louder. Her father goes up to see what is going on while she remains downstairs on her own waiting for him to return – and the true horror of the situation become painfully clear...

Available on DVD and Blu-ray, the only extra is the original trailer. Both formats are listed with Spanish and German audio options and English and German subtitles.
