Classic Whodunit

I enjoy discovering new, truly independent productions, often hit or miss, Silent as the Grave is a major hit.

A simple well-made film, classy, with fine directing, acting. Michael Kunicki is an outstanding lead for this film, a Hitchcockian hero.

The directors Messrs. Gremley and Podowski give the material an old school thriller, mystery feel to it, film noir.

The Christmas theme throughout is a nice touch, contrary to the scenes unfolding, kept my interest throughout. Nice twists and turns, wonderfully not predictable.

The fact this is based on a true, personal story makes it all the more remarkable.

My hat's off to all involved!

Excellent Neo-Noir

I've long been a fan of film noir and just recently finished reading Eddie Muller's "Dark City: The Lost World of Film Noir." So when I saw the trailer for this neo-noir-esqe crime story, I just had to take a look. And I'm so glad I did. Silent as the Grave is about a documentary filmmaker with his own love of film noir. And his curiosity about a family mystery soon leads him into a real life crime story of his own. I won't spoil the plot, but it's fair to say as the mystery grows, so does the filmmakers sense of peril. This was a delicious crime-drama. And you don't have to be a noir fan like me to enjoy it. If you like a good, involving mystery with some dark family secrets, you'll get into this movie. I absolutely recommend it.

Family suspense drama

I enjoyed this film which is a family suspense drama based on true family stories. That's what hooked me and it's a slow build up to the conclusion but worth it although I had a feeling about who the "bad guy" was from their introduction. The lead actor is good as he uncovers family secrets but the supporting characters could have been developed more. I liked the cinematography and the overall look of the film, much more professional than other independent films of this genre. Editing could have been a little snappier to bring out the suspense but the noir-ish score is top notch and surprisingly jazzy in parts, which I loved.
