The movie A Quiet Place is known as “one of best ‘horror’ films” in a long time. It was released on April 6th of this year and has already made $50 million debut. With only a $17 Million dollar budget this movie has already hit number one in the box office. The director of this movie is John Krasinski, and he also plays the main father character in the movie.

This movie is more of a thriller than an actual horror movie. It’s by far an ‘edge of your seat’ movie, leaving you waiting to see what’s going to happen next. Most movies use eerie music to give you chills or create a suspenseful atmosphere, but this film doesn’t do that. Instead it’s full of blank quiet scenes, waiting for something to make a sound or for something to happen.

The basis of the story line is that in order to survive they have to remain silent, which is why it’s called “A Quiet Place”. If a noise gets made these big gross looking monsters come running towards the sound. The monsters are blind so they can’t see what they’re looking for, but they have these large ears on them that allow them to determine where the sound is coming from.

The family the movie is centered around communicate through sign language. This is so the creatures don’t hear the sound of their voices and come kill them, but of course this movie wouldn’t be a thriller or a horror movie unless something goes wrong. They face many challenges throughout the movie that leave you screaming at the screen.

Although it’s more of a subtle movie it was still one that I would recommend you try to see. The storyline was well thought out and portrayed greatly. This is definitely a good movie to see with a group of friends or your significant other.
