Silence in one shot

La Casa Muda (The Silent House) is a flick from Uruguay that unfolds in one continuous shot. Hopefully it works better than Albert Pyun's Invasion. The trailer looks promising though and the movie is scheduled for an April 8th release in the UK through Optimum Releasing. 

Filmed in one single continuous shot of seventy-eight minutes, La Casa Muda focuses on Laura, who, second by second, intends to leave a house which hides an obscure secret. Laura and her father, Wilson, settle down in a cottage they have to renew since its owner will soon put the house up for sale. They intend to spend the night there and make the repairs the following morning. Everything seems to go smoothly until Laura hears a sound from outside that gets louder and louder on the upper floor of the house. Wilson goes up to see what is going on while she remains downstairs on her own, waiting for her father to come down.
