HANNAH HOUSE – Chad e Max Smith

Written by Mariangela Celiberti

 Some time before, the woman who used to live there (Hannah) had hanged herself and her whole family died. What seemed only a sensation at the beginning, suddenly becomes real when Hannah comes back from Hell to turn their world upside-down. Hannah House is a very particular movie. It has been shot as a silent movie from the 20s and 30s, the time in which the story is set. There are black and white pictures, no dialogue and subtitles explaining to the spectator what he cannot hears.

The Background music and noises (a cup which falls down, the sound of the wind blowing, Anna’s baby crying) underline the fear and desolation of such an obscure and mysterious place.

The images of this movie are often deliberately confused and, thanks to many flashbacks, the past and the present get mixed together. The devil’s presence is represented by the snakes that infest the house and Anna’s womb, and the scene when she gives birth to his son is one of the strongest in the movie. Hannah House is well shot but it is quite full of horror clichés, making it somewhat boring, and the absence of dialogue and good actors doesn’t overcome the simplicity of its screenplay.
