When friends Eagle (Sean Nateghi), Bobby (Joseph Martinez) and Dominic
(Jay Habre) want to go home from their hunting trip, they discover there's
a dead body (Cade Daniel) in the trunk of Eagle's car. Obviously none of
them had put it there because they were together all the time on their
trip, so Bobby and Dominic want to call the police - but not Eagle, who
has got a criminal record, and who figures if a body is found in his car,
he'll be booked no mater what. He promises the others to take care of
things though, and that's good enough for them - for the moment. Thing is,
his way of "taking care of things" is leaving the key in the
ignition and hoping the car gets stolen - and that doesn't work out. So
ultimately he parks his car on the other side of town, then reports it
stolen ... but it's his girlfriend (Constance Brenneman) who gets the call
that it has been found, picks it up, and finds the dead woman in the trunk
Meanwhile Bobby and Dominic are getting more and more nervous but
also overcome by guilt, but when they try to persuade Eagle to go to the
police after all, he not only breaks off with them, he also dumps the dead
body in Bobby's car trunk. Finding the body, Bobby's quick to dump it in a
lake, but gets so worked up that his drug addiction he thought he had
beaten gets the better of him. And amid them all, Dominic is so overcome
by guilt that it severely affects his personal life ...
the basic premise of this movie might suggest a dark comedy, Silent
Panic plays it straight - and fares very well that way. This is of
course thanks to a very well-structured and thought through screenplay
that finds just the right balance between thriller and character study, a
solid directorial effort that knows what to show and what not to, and of
course a strong cast.
Well worth a look for sure!
