Editorial Reviews

All Billy Hughes can do is fight for her life. A mute American working in Russia, Billy witnesses abrutal murder on a Russian movie set. Targeted by the killers, doubted by the police and the other Americans, Billy turns to the one man who offers to help. But is he her savior or her assassin? An intense spiral of suspense that continues to shock and surprise with each scene, MUTE WITNESS combines the nonstop intensity of The Silence of the Lambs with the classic suspense of Wait Until Dark. Guest star and Academy Award(r) winner Sir Alec Guinness (1958 Best Actor in a Leading Role, The Bridge on the River Kwai) has a surprise in store for us all.

This is actually a good, solid thriller with a terrific lead performance by Marina Zudina.
Craig Clarke
I will say that using a mute character as the lead protagonist works brilliantly, and helps to make "Mute Witness" the masterpiece that it is.
Stephen B. O'Blenis
She thinks she can trust this one guy but isnt sure and you start to think if hes really with her or against her.

"Mute witness" starts with a very funny take on low budget filmmaking, then offers a horriffic snuff-murder, followed by a cat and mouse game between a witness and the killer in a huge, abandoned building, then does some tiresome B-plot things with a important floppydisc which multiple parties are looking for, then goes for a shoot-out with a twist, and ends, finaly, with a bang.

Okay, for some explanation: a crew of Young Americans is making a slasher movie in Russia. What they don't know is that part of the Russian technicians are using the same sets at night to produce pornografic snuff. Billy, the mute special effects girl, is present by accident, and what follows is a chase through the building complex, which is so extremely well made and done, that even the chase-scenes in "Dressed to kill" and "Se7en" have to "snuff it".

Scene after scene, moment after moment, the killers close in on Billy, and with only her wit she manages to stay ahead. The whole sequence is done with great amount of detail and feel for true suspense and keeps the viewer on the very edge of his seat.

But when Billy is rescued from the bad guys, they track her down to her appartment. And again we're plagued with another hand full of topnotch suspense. Billy takes a quiet bath, and even this innocent scene is so put together and we, as the viewer, hold our breath in vein. And it only gets worse after this.

"Mute witness" can be put in the same spot as "Saw", "The Evil dead", "Cube", "Pi", "Halloween" and "Memento": all made by an enthusiastic group of young new talent, whose excitements are clearly visable all throughout the movies they made. This new bunch of talent, wit and exictement makes up for half a Great Movie, their craftmanship for the other half.

With possibly more twists than any other horror/suspense movie in history - including "Psycho" and "Raising Cain", with possibly its only competion for the rapid twists crown coming from "Paranoiac" - "Mute Witness" is a wholly original and wholly unpredictable terror thrill ride that demands close attention from the viewer to keep up.

A small movie crew is on location in Moscow filming a horror movie when a mute girl - a member of the crew - witnesses what appears to be a real murder, possibly connected with some sort of real-life snuff movie outfit operating in the Russian criminal underworld. The Russian police - made up primarily of former-KGB agents - are called in and, although I'm well aware of the garbage that went down in the years when Stalin et al had the KGB committing their atrocities, the simple fact is that not All of the hundreds of thousands of men and women working in Soviet law enforcement could have been bad, it's statisically impossible, and it's an interesting and refreshing change to see these ex-KGBers presented in the 'good guy' role for a change. The lead investigator in particular is impressive - both the character and the actor. Though highly skeptical of the murder account given, he's compassionate with the young girl terrified by what she thinks she saw, totally non-patronizing, and highly efficient. The actor who plays him impresses hugely because before the movie he apparantly spoke virtually no English and taught himself enough in the few weeks before auditions to not only land the part but to give a tremendous performance, thus fitting in well with the high-caliber jobs done by all the actors and actresses involved.

MUTE WITNESS starts off with a bloody murder that isn't what it appears to be. Then, main character, Billy Hughes (Marina Sodina) witnesses what she believes is a real snuff-film being filmed. This leads into a very suspenseful part of the movie that even snagged my short attention span! Billy is of course the MUTE WITNESS, and her silent screams add tension and horror to the procedings. Her desperate attempts to elude the human monsters on her trail are some of the best I've seen. The scenes in the dilapidated film studio and in Billy's apartment are shot with sadistic perfection! The entire cast is great, with the russian cop being another standout. Fay Ripley is strong as Billy's sister and the only one who seems to believe her story. At times, I was reminded of the movie 8mm. There are also some parallels between this one and FX. However, MUTE WITNESS has enough originality and explosiveness to overcome any similarities! Watch for Sir Alec Guiness (Star Wars) as mysterious Reaper...

This is a great thriller. One of the best. The scenes where she is being chased and can't speak to let people know she is in serious trouble... it makes you want to scream for her, but the people in the movie can't hear you either so you just sit there screaming at the screen and clenching your hands so tightly that you just want to jump out of your own skin. A great movie and a must see. Show this one to people who have never heard of it before and you will have one classic movie night with friends.
