Hush (Review)

Director; Mike Flanagan
Thriller
1h 21 minutes
From 2016

Mike Flanigan delivers once again another brilliant nail-biter that will have you on the edge of your seat from beginning to end. Its thrillingly beautiful script with a fantastic twist is both highly entertaining and well done. First, he gave us Before I wake, and now, Hush.

Hush, though it may come off as any other home alone thriller, but due to the female lead being deaf it brings a whole other level of suspense and originality, making it ten times more horrific, providing with some intense moments that will crawl up your spine – leaving you completely paranoid, terrified, and in awe of its work and great premise.

Maddie, a deaf writer who lives by herself in a cabin in the woods finds herself trapped in a panicked terror game of mouse and cat, as one intruder tries to make her life a living hell.

Kate Siegal was pure delight and perfection portraying a deaf character, showing every emotion through her eyes and face gestures. Every movement and act were beautiful, believable, and simply one of the best I’ve seen in a long time. Strongly recommended if you want a smart thriller with massive suspense and great acting, I literally had a knot inside my stomach throughout most parts.
7.2/10
