Beware the stare of Mary Shaw.
She had no children, only dolls.
And if you see her, do not scream.
Or she’ll rip your tongue out at the seam.

THE MOVIE

From the writer and director of the international phenomenon Saw comes an experience on the razor’s edge of fear, Dead Silence.

There is an old ghost story in the sleepy town of Ravens Fair about Mary Shaw, a ventriloquist who went mad.  Accused of the murder of a young boy, she was hunted down by vengeful townspeople who cut out her tongue and killed her.  They buried her along with her “children,” a hand-made collection of vaudeville dolls.

Since that time, Ravens Fair has been plagued by death.  The ghastly dolls from Mary Shaw’s collection have gone missing from the grave and reappeared over the decades.  In the dead of night—wherever they are glimpsed—families are found gruesomely murdered with their tongues torn out.

Far from the pall of their hometown, newlyweds Jamie (Ryan Kwanten) and Lisa Ashen thought they had established a fresh start.  But when his wife is grotesquely killed, Jamie reluctantly returns to Ravens Fair for the funeral, intent on unraveling the mystery of her death.  

Once reunited with his ill father (Bob Gunton) and his father’s new young bride (Amber Valletta), Jamie must dig into the town’s bloody past to find out who killed his wife and why.  As he uncovers the legend of Mary Shaw, Jamie unlocks the story of her curse and the truth behind the song from his childhood: if you see her and scream, you will never speak again.

-I wish the clown puppet was coming after me. I would catch him and put him on a leash and name him Lil' BoBo. Then we could play fetch together and I would teach him tricks like sit, stay and eviscerate.
-Eventually I would cross-breed him with a Darth-Vader action figure. Then Darth-BoBo Jr. and I would overthrow the emporer and rule the galaxy as father and toy.
-Then we would build a massive weapon called a Demise-Star and blow up Pluto because it's not even cool enough to be a planet anymore.

-Scary? There is no such thing as a scary movie, and even if there were...I doubt this would be it.
-This just seems a lot like the Goosebumps book "Night of the Living Dummy". It wasn't scary when I was eight and when they try too hard they lose the only good part about a horror movie...humour.
