This is where you recognise the cast of The Silencing on Netflix from

Including Hero Fiennes Tiffin

The Silencing is the latest thriller to drop on Netflix, and it stars a pretty impressive cast including Nikolai Coster-Waldau and Annabelle Wallis. It originally came out in 2020 but has just been added to Netflix and is already in the top 10 movies this week.

The film tells the story of Rayburn, a hunter, and Gustafaston, the newly appointed sheriff, who combine forces to solve a string of murders happening on Rayburn’s protected land. The movie has everything you want out of a thriller – jump scare scenes, dramatic landscapes, and um, a yeti?

If that hasn’t convinced you to watch The Silencing, then maybe the cast list will:

Rayburn – Nikolai Coster-Waldau
