Dead Silence: The History of Mary Shaw
Why did the ghost ventriloquist Mary Shaw keep Edward Ashen and his son Jamie alive for a time span of over 70 years?
NOW WHO’S THE DUMMY? Beware the stare of Mary Shaw. She had no children, only dolls. And if you see her in your dreams. Be sure to never ever scream. The town of Ravens Fair has a long, dark history that is all tied into the curse placed on it by Mary Shaw. But how far back does the malice of the vengeful puppeteer go? In this video I’ll be pulling together every shred of evidence in the 2007 James Wan film Dead Silence to try and analyse the entire life of Mary Shaw. Mary’s history of bad blood with the town and the Ashen family stretches back over a century, and I’ll be covering everything from her birth in the 1800s to the life changing altercation at the Guignol Theater on Lost Lake, to her eventual death and afterlife hunting down the families of those who tried to silence her.
