A Quiet Place (2018)
A family is forced to live in silence while hiding from creatures that hunt by sound.
I had heard good things about this movie, that plus I’ve always liked Emily Blunt and since 13 Hours I’ve come to appreciate John Krasinski as well. I read a good review and I also haven’t seen a good horror movie since It, so we went last night (Saturday).
This is a clever idea for a movie. Humanity engaged in a war with aliens and lost. The aliens are now present on earth and hunting us, they are blind and hunt by sound. So to survive one family in Iowa has learned to be (almost) completely silent. They did have an advantage in that they learned sign language already since their daughter is deaf.
I thought that there were a lot of good aspects here, ways that they became silent such as not wearing shoes and spreading sand around the places they walk most often. The movie does have its flaws, such as I can’t believe a woman could give birth and barely her (or the baby) make enough noise to attract them.
Still it was a unique experience for a movie to be mostly silent. Then when the aliens (or something else) happens, it gives you a good jolt. It shows the ability of human beings to adapt to strange situations and ultimately provides a glimpse into one family’s struggle in this near future tale. We see how love brings people together and how we can find a way to survive.
The movie is not without it’s flaws. There are several things that happen that don’t make a lot of sense to me. Overall, though, I really enjoyed it. Excellent acting, good special effects, good thrills, a good story and a pretty unique experience with almost no dialogue or even much sound for most of the movie. Krasinski is certainly on his way to becoming a great director. Please don’t bring kids to this movie, ages 13+. I give this a solid 8 out of 10 and would recommend to any horror/thriller fan.
