Accused of the killing by smarmy local homicide detective Lipton (Donnie Wahlberg), husband Jamie (Ryan Kwanten) takes the devil doll to his hometown to get at the root of a curse that points to a deceased ventriloquist named Mary Shaw.
The detective's late model car is just one of many incongruities that plague the movie.
Jamie questions the old-fashioned townsfolk, and his ruthless but wealthy father, about the hex that leads him to a deserted theater where Mary Shaw once performed.
Plodding and bereft of suspense, "Dead Silence" is an irredeemable jumble of cliché genre fragments.
Rated R. 90 mins.
