A Quiet Place is a terrifying and heartwrenching Sci-fi horror film directed by John Krasinski. Acting alongside his real-life wife, Emily Blunt, Millicent Simmonds, and Noah Jupe, the film centers around the Abbott family who must live their lives in silence and hide from predatory creatures that hunt by using sound.

Movies Hitting Theatres July to December of 2019
The movie begins with the Abbot family scavenging for food and supplies at an abandoned general store. Since any noise they make will attract the creatures to their location, they use American Sign Language to communicate with one another and have created markers on the ground to walk on.
Before returning home, their youngest child, Beau finds a toy rocket to take with him, but his father, Lee tells him to leave the toy since it’s too loud. Feeling bad for her youngest brother, Regan gives him the toy back but doesn’t notice Beau taking the batteries with him. So as they begin their trek back home, Beau turns on the rocket and before his father, Lee can save him, one of the creatures takes him.
Within the first ten minutes of the movie, we’re left shaken and nervous after the attack. We no longer want to make a sound because we don’t want to put our lives at risk or the family.
While watching A Quiet Place at an advanced screening, everyone in the theater did their best to not make any noise. We jumped in our seats and covered our mouths with our hands, we couldn’t make a noise because we were all scared.
The use of sound was what made this film so mesmerizing to watch because it amplified sounds that are easy to overlook, like when the kids were rolling the dice when playing a board game. There were more times when the audience jumped or gasped because of a simple noise than when the actual monster appeared.
This film could have been just another horror film with nothing more than cheap scares and boring characters, but thankfully it wasn’t.
A Quiet Place is a movie with so much heart and such a deep understanding of the Horror genre that it makes this movie all the more important to watch.
A Quiet Place premiered on April 6.
