At the risk of sounding like a broken record, sadness multiplies terror and vice versa. The two main characters, in Silhouette, start with baggage. You’ll be lucky if you catch someone smiling, and certainly not April Hartman, who plays a grieving mother. Tom Zembrod mourns more healthily, which makes him incompatible with his wife. That and his secret life.
Silhouette is 90% drama and 10% horror. If you’re a fan of slow-burning psychological ghost stories, this is probably right up your alley. It behaves, at times, like body horror for the mind, as we witness Hartman’s descent into madness. She keeps seeing impossible things. The film has a clever way to show the ghost that goes beyond the classic lady in white, through compositing.
Some scenes are barely lit and it’s problematic. Darkness is eerie, but the best scares require a bit of light. Every producer, filmmaker, and director on a budget, ever, has envisioned shooting a movie like this one; a movie with limited production design, shooting locations, practical effects, and cast that would be acclaimed in festivals and appreciated by movie buffs. This is how it’s done.
