Is Hush actually scary?

Before horror mastermind Mike Flanagan delivered audiences The Shining sequel Doctor Sleep and memorable Netflix scare affairs like Gerald’s Game, The Haunting of Bly Manor, and The Haunting of Hill House, he told viewers to sit back, brace themselves, and simply Hush.

The story follows Maddie,.a deaf girl living on her own in a nice house in the woods away from society. But her world is turned upside down when an intruder relentlessly pursues her in a demented effort to end her life. Being trapped in a secluded area with a mask-wearing psychotic maniac is extremely alarming on its own. Add being deaf to the harrowing ordeal, and you’ve got a great recipe for a motion picture that throws any viewer into a panic several times before the hair-tasing affair fades to black.

The 2016 film Hush offers Netflix subscribers a spine-chilling experience that utilizes a terrorizing sound design strategy to make viewers feel like they re actually there experiencing the blood-curdling ordeal in the same vulnerable state the main character Maddie. Combine that with a stellar script and brilliant performance from Kate Siegel, and the end result is a panic-inducing thrill ride that will have you sleeping with one eye and both ears open.
