Don’t make a sound or they will find you.
A Quiet Place takes place in world where you can’t make sound or these terrifying creatures will find you and get you. The movie follows a family figuring out how to navigate this world they live in. John Krasinski and Emily Blunt, who are also married in real life, play Lee and Evelyn, the parents of the family. About a year after a family tragedy, their eldest Regan (Millicent Simmonds) feels responsible and disconnected from her father. Regan is also deaf, which has helped the family survive from knowing sign language. We also find Evelyn pregnant, and Marcus (Noah Jupe), their younger son, to be in better condition than we last saw him.
A Quiet Place is the perfect horror film. Every sound, the watcher wonders if that will be their last. The film is well paced, keeping the audience draw in. Emily Blunt shines in role, making the audience fully understand what she is going through. In one scene, you can feel every emotion she goes through and can feel the struggle. John Krasinski, typically known for his comedy, directs a film where the story shines just as much horror. A Quiet Place delivers a great message about family when scaring you half to death. Noah Jupe and Millicent Simmonds also give spectacular performances. The children shine just as much as the parents.
Overall, A Quiet Place is so much more than a horror film. The story layers on to horror, drawing you in more and more. The view leaves the theater feeling scared, but also a heart felt message about family.
