Hush (2017) Review


Hush is a 2016 American slasher film directed and edited by Mike Flanagan, starring Kate Siegel, who also co-wrote the film with Flanagan.


The film co-stars John Gallagher Jr., Michael Trucco, Samantha Sloyan, and Emilia "Emma" Graves. It was jointly produced by Trevor Macy through Intrepid Pictures and Jason Blum through Blumhouse Productions.


The film had its world premiere at South by Southwest on March 12, 2016, and was released by Netflix on April 8, 2016.


The film has been remade twice, with Kolaiyuthir Kaalam and Khamoshi being released in 2019.


Maddie Young is a deaf woman and horror writer who lost her abilities to hear and speak after a bout of bacterial meningitis at age 13, only to lose both permanently after a botched corrective surgery. Hoping to advance her career as an author, she lives an isolated life in the woods with her cat.


Her friend Sarah visits her one evening to return a copy of her book. While discussing her writing, Maddie explains how she visualizes her stories, and considers numerous potential endings before deciding on one.


Later that night, a masked killer with a crossbow attacks Sarah and chases her to Maddie's house. A bloodied Sarah bangs on the door shouting for help; her cries go unheard because Maddie cannot hear her, and the man stabs Sarah to death.
