About Silent Retreat

A creature feature.  In this horror film, Janey is sent to a silent meditation retreat in the middle of the woods for rehabilitation, only to discover that the men who run it are brainwashing women to be quiet and submissive, and if she breaks the rules, she’ll discover what lurks beyond the trees …

The only way to survive the silence … is to SCREAM.

It’s been a long journey for the independently produced Canadian shocker that, according to Rue Morgue Magazine, “beautifully blends supernatural horror with the terrors of the real world”Silent Retreat tells the story of Janey Andrews (Chelsea Jenish), a troubled youth sent to a silent meditation retreat in the middle of the woods to be rehabilitated.  She discovers that the Doctor (Robert Nolan) who runs the retreat is after more than just her voice, and if Janey doesn’t follow his rules, she’ll discover the terrible secret that lurks beyond the trees, and find out what happens to those who don’t embrace the silence.

Made with a lot of passion and a tiny budget, Silent Retreat is tried and true indie horror at its best.  Shot at Kettleby Valley Camp just outside Toronto, the incredibly dedicated cast and crew under the direction of Tricia Lee, lived and worked on location for 2 weeks.  With inventive and resourceful makeup effects, haunting cinematography, and chilling performances, Silent Retreat showcases the incredible talents of many up and coming Canadian filmmakers.

After cutting together a killer trailer, and having a great response from The Toronto After Dark Film Festival, where it won Best Canadian Feature, Lee arranged a limited theatrical release in Toronto, Ottawa, Regina and a few other Canadian cities.  And now, the ways to watch Silent Retreat are about to dramatically increase.

On September 2, 2014, not only will the film be distributed on DVD in Canada by Black Fawn Distribution (order it at, but it will finally be making its way to the American market.

I've been a fan of horror and slasher movies for as long as I can remember. I consider the original Halloween to be the best horror movie of all time and my guilty pleasure horror flick would be The Exorcist III. You can find me on Twitter at @406Northlane or TikTok @406Northlane where I'm sure I'll offend you at least once a day.
