Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that the horror movie Silent House (from the directors of tense indie hit Open Water) includes some not entirely explained backstory involving some kind of child pornography (or worse). Onscreen, there's lots of blood, guns and gunshots, scary figures, and beatings. The main character wears clothing that displays plenty of cleavage. Language is infrequent but includes strong words like "s--t" and "f--k." Some drinking is involved, with a negative air around it.

Sexual Content

The main character wears a cleavage-displaying outfit throughout; it's very overt and could almost be considered "partial nudity." The main character's uncle gazes at her in an uncomfortable and inappropriate way.

Violence

Lots of blood in the movie's final third. A gun is drawn and shot. Though nothing is really spoken aloud, there are clues that some type of child pornography has taken place (or perhaps something even more sinister and/or violent). Other brief acts of beating and torture. Scary figures appear, and other nightmarish images are shown.

Language

Language is infrequent but includes strong words like "s--t," "ass," "damn," "oh my God," "goddamn," and "a--hole," as well as one "f--k."

Social Behavior

Not much in the way of positive themes. The three family members (father, daughter, and uncle) sometimes don't treat each other very well, and they behave suspiciously from time to time. Some of the backstory and the movie's themes are deliberately muddled and obscure.

Consumerism

"Facebook" is mentioned.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Characters occasionally drink beer and other hard drinks; empty beer bottles are shown.
