The opening act of Hush is one to be studied. Everything that assumes importance in the second and third act are made acquaintance with the viewer in the first act itself without focusing on any of it. The dread that grips us seems so distant, yet when it does, it hits us with the pace of a peregrine falcon. Hush is the kind of thrillers which do not get made nowadays, it uses silence to create the feeling of utmost dread.
Kate Siegel gives a visceral performance as Maddie. It was so convincing that I actually thought she was mute and deaf. To see her transform from a scared soul to the ravage she transforms into towards the end is chilling. John Gallagher, who I have admired since his act as Jim in The Newsroom, sheds his charm and transforms brilliantly into a psychopath.
The editing is spell-binding, keeping us transfixed on the screen throughout the run time. I love the sharp-focus shots, and the rapid editing makes the pace quicken.
The only problem that I did have with this movie is the third act which seems sagging, and weak in terms of the first and second act. But it seems like a minor hindrance. I watched Hush with a good turnout of audience. And believe me, they were very interested.
RATING :- 9 / 10
