Earlier this week, Saban Films dropped a brand new poster and the official trailer for their upcoming thriller, THE SILENCING. Make sure you check out the trailer below and let us know what you think.
Rayburn Swanson understands loss. His only teenage daughter was kidnapped five years ago and since then, he has slipped into a downward spiral of alcoholism and self-destruction. A bitter loner, Rayburn longs to find his daughter and spends his free time searching for her.
After his daughter went missing, Rayburn swore off hunting and trapping and decided to help the very animals he used to kill by establishing a self-sufficient wildlife sanctuary that borders the inhospitable Boundary Waters Wilderness. Rayburn spends his days monitoring the activity of the animals on his property with a series of closed-circuit cameras that surround his secluded property. His only friend in the world is a dog named Thor who helps monitor the sanctuary and diligently alerts Rayburn of anything suspicious with a bark each time he spots movement on the monitors.
When the body of a teenage girl is found in the wilderness, Sheriff Alice Gustafson is called in to investigate. She is the youngest and first female sheriff in St. Louis County history. Her only clue is a spear recovered from the crime scene with the initials MB etched into the wood.
The day comes when Thor spots something horrifying on one of the security monitors; a killer, dressed in a ghillie suit, hunting a girl on Rayburn’s sanctuary. She resembles his missing daughter, and Rayburn sets off into the wilderness in a race to find her before the killer does.
Sheriff Gustafson also delves deeply into the hunt for the killer and becomes suspicious that her troubled brother might be her top suspect. With the killer on his trail, Rayburn fights to survive while guiding the girl through the wilderness towards safety. A story of revenge and redemption, the storylines collide with devastating consequences.
THE SILENCING stars Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (“Game of Thrones”, Mama), Annabelle Wallis (The Mummy, “Peaky Blinders”), and Hero Fiennes Tiffin (After We Collided, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince).
The film is directed by Robin Pront (The Ardennes) and written by Micah Ranum (Harvest Moon).
THE SILENCING will release on DirectTV on July 16, 2020. The film will then roll out in theaters, on Digital, and On-Demand on August 14, 2020.
