From the team responsible for the
international sleeper hit Saw--writer/actor Leigh Whannell,
writer/director James Wan and producers Gregg Hoffman, Mark
Burg and Oren Koules--comes the supernatural thriller Dead
Newlyweds Jamie (Kwanten) and Lisa Ashen have established a
new life for themselves far from their hometown of Ravens
Fair--a sleepy, near-forgotten blip on the map haunted by
late-night whispers and ghost stories from generations past.
But when his wife is gruesomely murdered, Jamie reluctantly
returns to Ravens Fair for the funeral, intent on unraveling
the mystery surrounding her death.
Once back under his family's roof, reunited with his ill
father (Gunton) and his father's new young bride (Valletta),
Jamie begins to explore the creepy town and encounters the
legend of Mary Shaw, a famous murdered ventriloquist whose
presence still casts a pall over Ravens Fair. Himself the
lead suspect in his wife's murder, Jamie is forced to dig
deep into the town's bloody past for answers, where he soon
uncovers the truth behind the curse that ended Lisa's
life...and threatens to take his as well.
Dead Silence is written by Leigh Whannell & James Wan and
directed by James Wan. It stars Ryan Kwanten, Amber
Valletta, Donnie Wahlberg and Bob Gunton and is produced by
Gregg Hoffman, Mark Burg and Oren Koules.
Following his success with the electrifying and acclaimed
Shattered Glass, writer/director Billy Ray explores more
deeply the disillusionment and questionable moral mentorship
of a young idealist in Dead Silence
. The film is produced
by Bobby Newmyer (Training Day
), Scott Strauss (Mindhunters
and Scott Kroopf (The Last Samurai
