Back in January 2011, Elizabeth Olsen came out of nowhere at the Sundance Film Festival, earning rave reviews for her performance in "Martha Marcy May Marlene" and riding a huge wave of buzz all year culminating in awards season attention and a Spirit Awards nomination. However, the actress starred in another movie at Park City at the same time, one that drew less notice -- the single take horror film "Silent House." And wisely, the team behind that decided to wait until the post-'Marcy' buzz before releasing it into theaters.

Elizabeth Olsen Silent House

Back in January 2011, Elizabeth Olsen came out of nowhere at the Sundance Film Festival, earning rave reviews for her performance in "Martha Marcy May Marlene" and riding a huge wave of buzz all year culminating in awards season attention and a Spirit Awards nomination. However, the actress starred in another movie at Park City at the same time, one that drew less notice -- the single take horror film "Silent House." And wisely, the team behind that decided to wait until the post-'Marcy' buzz before releasing it into theaters.

But the time is soon arriving, and get folks motivated, four clips from the film have arrived online to give you a taste of the movie that is boasting  a "single take" concept. A remake of the 2010 Spanish horror film of the same name, the film centers on a young woman who returns to the family summerhouse with her father to fix it up, only for some things to go bump in the night, kicking off a night of terror.

This sort of thing generally isn't in our wheelhouse, but the presence of Olsen does pique our curiousity to some degree, and at any rate, will probably lend the proceedings the kind of talent these kind of cheapie horror flicks don't usually have. "Silent House" hits theaters on March 9th. Watch the clips below. [STYD/STYD/EW]
