“After discovering a dead body in the trunk of their car, three young men (Sean Nateghi, Joseph Martinez, and Jay Habre) are faced with fear and indecision. They struggle with the dilemma of either concealing a crime they did not commit, or reporting it to the police with the possibility of becoming suspects themselves. All three men make a choice, and their lives will never be the same.”
Silent Panic feels so real. It takes a unlikely situation and puts you right in the middle… almost making it feel more likely than it should. I found myself going back in fourth in my own head about what I would do or how I would handle it. Surprisingly enough, it was a lot harder than I originally thought it would be. Kyle Schadt did a wonderful job of creating a mind racing scenario and I am grateful. It seems rarer and rarer that movies get my mind racing and for that, this movie deserves more acknowledgement by the public and needs to be seen. Even with low budget acting, Silent Panic still gets the feeling across. Nothing against the actors either because they did a fine job. It actually made the whole situation feel more real with the low budget acting. I’m curious if Silent Panic would have the same feel to it with a higher budget production. Honestly, I think it would lose some of it’s effect because these actors made it feel like I was there with my friends. I’ll certainly be recommending people to watch Silent Panic if they have the opportunity. By now, it should be available to watch digitally (I was originally told it would be within a few weeks after the theatrical debut). So if you happen to come across it, stop searching and press play.
