Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Terrified of puppets? Enjoy being scared? Then you'll be half-satisfied with Dead Silence, a rote horror pantomime. – Scott Brown, Entertainment Weekly, Jul 7, 2010

Rotten: Formulaic and rather lazy exercise in booga-booga scare tactics. – John Anderson, Variety, Jul 7, 2010

Rotten: The movies have always asked us to suspend our disbelief, but Dead Silence demands our ignorance of its own derivations. A conflation of the horror genre's laziest tropes, plot angles and shorthands. – Ed Gonzalez, Los Angeles Times, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: Dolls are innately unnerving, but the movie's semi-menacing Charlie McCarthys never live up to their potential. – Jim Ridley, Village Voice, Jun 24, 2010

It's about time someone made a quality horror movie!!

I haven't seen a movie that scared me so badly in such a long time!! It was such an exhilerating film! Please watch it! :)


I remember when I first saw this movie scared the living daylights out of me. I love horror movies and don't typically get scared, so thats a huge compliment to this film. If you're looking for a good creepy scare, this is a must-see!

visually lovely

visually stunning at times, james wan never ceases to impress with his attention to detail and madly artistic eye. after having seen this film on multiple occasions, i still look forward to seeing the beautifully shot, color-saturated scenes. there are moments the acting leaves a bit to be desired, but with the locations, sets, and photography so divine, i find little to complain about and more to be impressed with. thank you james wan!
