'''''Dead Silence''''' is a 2007 horror movie from the makers of the ''Franchise/{{Saw}}'' movie series. It has less {{Gorn}}, but the chilling horror that this film provides covers the loss.

* DyingTown: Raven's Fair is mostly going out of business when Jamie drives through it, and seems to have roughly six inhabitants, [[spoiler:half of whom end up dead, already dead, or probably dead by the end of the movie.]]



* GhostTown: Raven's Fair.



* TooDumbToLive: Jamie [[spoiler: at the end. Shaw can only kill her victims when they scream, and Jamie has just destroyed most of Shaw's doll collection. What does he do upon finding out that Shaw is still after him via her remaining dolls Ellen and Edward? Scream.]]

* TheBechdelTest: Fails. There are only four women with speaking lines in the film; Lisa is dead within ten minutes, Marion is a senile old woman, Mary Shaw is the film's BigBad, and Ella [[spoiler: is Shaw's "perfect doll."]] Neither of them really interact with each other, aside from one offscreen moment where Marion and Mary Shaw speak; and even then, it was technically ''Billy'' she was talking to.

Added DiffLines:

* JumpScare: A whole bunch of 'em. Kind of justified, given that Mary Shaw needs you to scream before she can do anything.

* BadassBoast: A child in the audience heckles her act by pointing out the movement of her lips, and an argument between her and Billy ensues on stage that would put the best ventriloquist to shame. After roaring applause from the crowd subsides, she glares at the boy and asks, "Now who's the dummy?"
