Scared into silence
21 May 2019 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

Young Arlen Aguayo-Stewart's parents are both executed while she hides in a closet. When the authorities find her she is in hysterical silence unable to comprehend how her world has turned upside down. Her closest living relative an aunt Catherine Mary Stewart who is a doctor trying to get a staff position at a hospital.

Stewart's world is all changed now that she's had to learn to be a mom real fast. But the folks who killed her sister are now after the child. She also has a mysterious neighbor in Rob Lowe who normally I'd love if he paid attention to me. But with all that's going on does Lowe have sinister ulterior motives?

Dead Silent is a thriller in the Hitchcock tradition and Lowe had by that time played enough sinister roles to be good casting for a villain or a red herring. The parents were into some illegal business themselves.

Dead Silent is all right for the thriller genre, but it will never be rated a great one in said genre.
