Scaretober-Movie Review:Hush


For the month of October I’ve dubbed it Scaretober in which I will be blogging every day in October. No, it’s not just random blogs in October but specifically scary movies movies. I’m definitely not one of those girls that enjoys scary movies by any means in fact this is a HUGE challenge for me since I’m such a wimp when it comes down to it. Some of the movies reviewed will be super scary and others will just be 90’s cheesy scary compared to today’s standards. There will be a few days during this month that I will be putting up more than one posts, because sometimes you can’t hold any awesome back when it comes to the blog.

Today’s movie is Hush

This movie was another one that showed up in my Netflix suggestions and apparently is on everyone’s scary movie watch list this year.

Here is a quick rundown on the movie: a deaf writer named Maddie Young lives alone in the woods. Her closest neighbor and friend lives within walking distance, but is also out of the way of people. Over the course of one night a man decides to go hunting in the woods and stumbles upon these 2 houses. Needless to say the man kills Maddie’s neighbor and her husband before setting his sights on Maddie. Maddie uses all her strength and wits not to die. Yes, spoiler alert Maddie manages to make it through the night and live.

I found this movie super scary and considering that most of the movie takes place without words because Maddie is deaf. Since most of the movie is seen through Maddie’s point of view it only makes it more intense because you are not able to scream or communicate verbally. At one point in the movie, Maddie communicates to herself to keep herself alive and the voice she hears is that of what appears to be her mother’s voice. I highly recommend this movie for its thrill factor. I love that the director chose to use little sound in this movie.

I hope that you will keep following along with this Scaretober series to see what other movies I review. See you soon!
