I like the Saw easter egg, where you see the puppet of Jiggsaw
From the makers of the Saw franchise...Every town has it's own ghost story, and a local folktale around Ravens Fair is about a ventriloquist named Mary Shaw.
Dead silence (R for horror violence and images)

:rotten:

Well dead silence was a very good plot in the movie. But that's probably the only enjoyable thing. Well Dead silence is a good ghost story all in all. But the middle of the movie was very slow. I would recommend this to people that only like thrillers. Becuase it doesn't act like a horror. It does but it's not scary. It's only interesting not scary. But if you like puppets, old-fashion story, an average movie then you'll enjoy this like I did. But I gave it rotten because something was missing in this ghost story.
personally i love this movie. As it of course will never get as much good reviews as saw franchise but its a great effort. The Mary Shaw charactor was played well as well as the end of the movie which was worth waiting for i think
Finally popped in the movie that lived off of the reputation of Leigh Whannell, the director of the Saw movies and helped write and produce this one.

While not a horrible movie, it lacks the plot of 'Saw'. It is basically a movie about a ventrilaquist that lives on through her dummies. Is actually a little cooler than what it sounds. The sets in this movie are really well made and you can tell that they put a good amount of time into making the atmosphere hit you.

One disappointment in the movie is Donnie Wahlberg being in it. I thought he rocked in Saw II, but he steps down a notch in this movie. It is more the writing and the character than him. Maybe you'll agree, maybe not.

I'm not gonna give anything else away, because I definitely recommend you to watch this movie without spoilers. If you are a fan of the 'Saw' movies, definitely check it out. I would consider it a 'Buy', since you can probably find it for real cheap now, but if not-a good rent.

PLOT:
Jamie Ashn's distant relative pissed of a ventriloquest and was murdered decades ago. now trhe ventriloquest wants revenge and is killing of the rest of the family BY CUTTING THEIR TONGUES OUT WHEN THEY SCREAM . but Jamie stops her in time

OPINION:
Loved it, a great thrill ride that was so bland it was good. I am from Aus a and Ryan is a great actor in this. this is a great way to scare little ones with this tale. "BEWARE THE STARE OF MARY SHAW, SHE HAD NO CHILDREN ONLY DOLLS, AND IF YOUU SEE HER, MAKE SURE YOU NEVER SCREAM.
Dead Silence
Starring - Ryan Kwanten, Amber Valleta and Donnie Wahlberg

It's official, puppets suck.

In Saw director's, James Wan, Dead Silence, a widower seeks for answers when his wife is misteriously murdered after recieving a puppet called Billy, who looks creepy but not enough for the dumb couple to throw out. Anyway, so the guy finds out, in his quest, that the puppet belongs to a dead ventriloquist who has a fixation for human tongues. Lovely, isn't it?

THE HIGHLIGHT: The clown puppet freaked me out... but nah, I got over it.
This is one of the movies where i'm running out of things to watch so i decide to pick it up even though i really don't care to see it. It's predictable, they try to make a scary ending but it's eh, ok. I felt it would make a better video game. The dolls end up being more funny then scary. The best part to me was the cinematography. They did a lot of creative transtions which i've noticed they do in the SAW movies as well.
'Beware the stare of Mary Shaw,

She had no children, only dolls.

And if you see her in your sleep,

Be sure you never, ever scream.'



........I'll be sure to do that. Every small town has their own little 'creepy' legend that's passed down from generation, to generation, and trying to make cinema gold out it more often than not hit or miss. Dead Silence... I think that this little legend could've stayed in Raven's Fair.

The premise is undone, yet seems strangely familiar. An ominous dummy brings death to those around it for it was owned by an old maid ventriloquist who regarded her dolls as children. Blah blah, so someone's got to solve the mystery and put an end to the killings!

I think it seems familiar because there are countless clich
Dead Silence is from the creators of Saw. I like the scary parts in Saw, which technically makes me a fan, but overall, Saw is a very stupid movie. And, Dead Silence, can be even stupider. I would give it a 1/10, becuase it shows no cinematic style when the movie starts, until it gets atleast 1 hour into the movie, and the movie is 1 hour 40 minutes. Yet, I do have to admitt, it had very scary parts in it. But, still I don't see why it was rated R. It didn't say the F word, no sex, no boobs, I would give it a PG-13 rating briefly. It's not that bad, I don't watch for the violence anyways, only the morons do. I watch it like this: action, for the cool parts, comedy, for the funny parts, drama, for the sad parts, horror, for the scary parts. But, this movie, was almost a comedy. It was one of the stupidest horror movies I had ever seen.
