Silent Number was Jamie Blanks' first film. The film revolves around a female babysitter as she spends the night at a creepy house during an electrical storm. During the night, she receives a number of telephone calls from an unidentified caller. The voice sounds scared and pleads the babysitter for help. We eventually discover the calls are not coming from any normal source.
Silent Number is not available for at-home viewing, however it can be viewed on-site at the VCA library in Melbourne, Australia. It may also be available for viewing at some other libraries.
