Dead Silence (2007) – WTF Happened to This Horror Movie?

A new episode of the WTF Happened to This Horror Movie video series looks back at James Wan’s 2007 film Dead Silence

We’re getting this week started with a new episode of the WTF Happened to This Horror Movie? video series, and in this one we’re looking back at one of James Wan’s “creepy puppet” movies, the 2007 release Dead Silence (watch it HERE). To find out all about Dead Silence, check out the video embedded above!

Directed by James Wan from a screenplay by Leigh Whannell, based on a story Wan and Whannell crafted together, Dead Silence has the following synopsis: Dare to unlock the deadly curse of Mary Shaw… From the creators of Saw comes a new thriller of relentless terror! Ever since Mary Shaw was hunted down and killed, the small town of Ravens Fair has been haunted by horrific deaths. When a local’s wife is brutally murdered, he returns home to unravel the terrifying legend of Mary Shaw and the reason why when you see her, you should never, ever scream.

The film stars Ryan Kwanten, Amber Valletta, Donnie Wahlberg, Bob Gunton, Michael Fairman, Keir Gilchrist, Joan Heney, Laura Regan, Judith Roberts, Steven Taylor, Dmitry Chepovetsky, and Shelley Peterson.

This is what the WTF Happened to This Horror Movie series is all about: Hollywood has had its fair share of historically troubled productions. Whether it was casting changes, actor deaths, fired directors, in-production rewrites, constant delays, budget cuts or studio edits, these films had every intention to be a blockbuster, but were beset with unforeseen disasters. Sometimes huge hits, sometimes box office bombs. Either way, we have to ask: WTF Happened To This Horror Movie?

The Dead Silence episode of WTF Happened to This Horror Movie? was Written, Narrated, and Edited by Tyler Nichols, Produced by Lance Vlcek and John Fallon, and Executive Produced by Berge Garabedian.

A couple of the previous episodes of the show can be seen below. To see more, head over to our JoBlo Horror Originals YouTube channel – and subscribe while you’re there!
