Hush, about a masked murderer intruding the home of a deaf/mute woman, is relatively uneventful until about twelve minutes in. That’s when the tension takes hold and never really lets go. It’s a balance between thrills and realism, trills tipping the scale more often than not, as the two protagonists play a night game of cat and mouse for the sake of the plot. The killer’s mask should’ve stayed on till the end though as it only adds to the creep factor in a movie built upon a premise that is genuinely scary.
