Silo is a great example of a film that takes audiences on a rollercoaster of emotions. Watching the film pulled at my heartstrings.

Having grown up in the Midwest, I can relate to the farm life portrayed in the film. I went to school with many farmers and silos were common throughout the state.

I look at the film as if it were an onion. On the top level you have a blood pumping disaster situation. The more you peel the onion, the more elements you see so many different prior events that are impacting the current action unfolding on the screen.

The characters are spot on, and as a result Silo has a level of authenticity. The manner in which the film is shot will draw you in. It felt as though I was right there in the mix watching the action unfold.

Grain entrapment is much more common than you might think. Wherever I think of a Silo, I recall Harrison Ford killing one of the bad cops by burying them in corn. That was frightening from an action element in that film.

For Silo the tension and the action feels so real, which shouts back to the camera angles and lighting.

Silo is arriving in theaters and virtual cinemas on May 7, 2021. Keep taking for more details. Check out the trailer for Silo here.

Synopsis:

Inspired by true events, SILO follows a harrowing day in an American farm town.

Disaster strikes when teenage Cody becomes the victim of a grain entrapment accident. Family, neighbors, and first responders must put aside their differences to rescue him from drowning in the 50-foot tall silo where corn quickly turns to quicksand.

Shedding light on an issue plaguing rural America, SILO shows how dangerous modern farming can be, while also highlighting the ways in which communities band together to look after one another.

A portion of the proceeds from SILO support the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation.
