We pick ten thrilling Movies that made their mark at Sundance
Last year's Sundance selections included both "Buried" and "Frozen," solid examples of thrillers about people surviving extreme situations in isolation or in one place. Both of them could easily be compared to "Open Water," an incredibly effective exercise in making the most out of a simple situation dramatically. Filmmakers Chris Kentis and Laura Lau will return to the festival this year with "The Silent House," but they're going to have to work double-time to top the reception they met with this story of a couple left behind after a scuba trip, forced to confront the terrifying possibilities of the ocean. Forget "Jaws," which I love but am not afraid of. This sort of death is what really gives me the cold sweats on film.
