Hush is a horror/thriller about a deaf writer who lives in the woods to find solitude and a place to write away from her family and friends. This is a low budget horror film, but done well enough. There isn’t too much to dissect as it’s a story about trying to survive when someone is crazily trying to kill you. The difference for Maddie, played by Kate Siegel, is she’s missing one of her senses, her hearing, but for the most part she adapts well without it. You are with her all the way as she fights to live. There is nothing redeeming about the mysterious man, played by John Gallagher Jr, and he’s creepily good. The ultimate reason for watching this is to find out whether Maddie will survive through it all and how bad of an ending it might be for the Man.
