The Sundance Film Festival announced Tuesday that it has invited back "Open Water" filmmakers Chris Kentis and Laura Lau. The duo will be returning with their latest psychological thriller, "Silent House," which will have its world premiere in the out-of-competition Park City at Midnight section.

The film stars Elizabeth Olsen, younger sister to Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen. While the description of the film is vague, the press release says it "tracks the growing panic of its enigmatic lead who's trapped in an unnerving nightmare."

Kentis and Lau saw Lionsgate scoop up their last film "Open Water" at the 2004 Sundance festival. It went on to gross $30 million. It will be interesting to see how their latest horror flick will perform.

This year's Sundance festival runs Jan. 20-30.
