Trivia

Siegal and Flanagan role-played each scene in their house before writing it down. This enabled them to better envision how the characters would really react in the face of danger. See more »

Goofs

When John tells the killer Maddie would have been unable to call 911 because she is deaf and mute, this is incorrect for several reasons. Most importantly, emergency response services are equipped to communicate with a deaf/mute person. Even if for some reason Maddie.was not able to "speak" with an actual operator, they would still have sent someone to investigate the call. See more »

Quotes

Man: I can come in anytime I want. And I can get you, anytime I want. But I'm not going to. Not until it's time. When you wish you're dead... that's when I'll come inside.

Silent chiller with great acting and an excellent premise.
14 April 2016 | by lnvictaSee all my reviews

'Hush' is a lot like 'The Strangers', except instead of strangers plural it's only one man, and instead of a husband and wife being terrorized it's a deaf and mute recluse. It's very tense and cleverly written bar a few cliché tropes that come with this kind of movie. It also has a minimal synth score, something I notice more and more horror movies are utilizing - 'You're Next', 'It Follows' - to give it an '80s classic slasher atmosphere. It's hard to even call it horror though as it offers far more thrills than actual scares. I was thoroughly satisfied watching this movie. It's constantly engaging, and that has a lot to do with the terrific performances of both the man and Maggie, and there are a few scenes that are genuinely depraved and chilling. It doesn't break any new ground, but following 'The Babadook' and 'It Follows', 'Hush' continues to reinspire the subtle, quiet corner of the genre and bodes well for the future of psychological thrillers. Highly recommended.
