A Quiet Place is as suspenseful, involving, and genuinely moving as you would hope, with incredible performances across the board and an ending that leaves you begging for more. Logical hiccups aside, which unfortunately are difficult for me to overlook, A Quiet Place successfully scares and thrills through a solid chunk of its run-time. It's an exercise in suspense done well by John Krasinski.

An excellent high concept nail-biter about an alien invasion that doesn't rely on explosions and annoying characters. It's built entirely on the refreshing premise that less sound is better for your survival. John Krasinki's directorial debut is quite impressive on genre thrills and building unrelenting tension. At a brisk 90 minutes, it's a tidy suspenseful sit.

One of the better original horror films to come out this year - and one of the better in recent memory. It helps that John Krasinski is paired with his real-life wife Emily Blunt (and is also handy behind the camera. Plus casting an actual deaf actress (Millicent Simmonds) as the daughter was a brilliant choice. You never know how much sound matters until most of it is removed - it makes for a very tense experience, and the creature design is excellent as well. Overall, if you are a fan of the horror genre, put this on your list.

Who are we?
We can’t protect them.
For me, “Upgrade” deserves the title “Best SF of the Year“. And unhesitatingly I call “A quiet place” the best horror of 2018. Even though it’s more Science-fiction than horror per se. I’ve been watching horror movies all my life and have already finished a whole list. Frankly, I was terrified of creeps like Dracula and Frankenstein until I was about 14 years old. If I even had seen a small fragment, I would go to bed shaking like a leaf and I’dd crawl behind a giant teddy bear. In my youthful fantasy, this bear was my protection against the creatures of the night. And when I saw “Evil Dead” for the first time and, to my astonishment, watched it without too many problems (as if I was numb), I knew my fear of horrors had disappeared from the face …

It's not easy to create a unique thriller these days, but this is one. It's the same basic formula for thrillers/horror movies, but the major details are ones I've not seen before. Very interesting, as I imagined myself trying to cope under those conditions. Krasinski didn't have the cred for a dramatic role, but he delivered and certainly has cred, now. Blunt delivered, as well, as to be expected. The kids delivered. The writers delivered, the cinematographers delivered, the tech guys delivered. The whole movie delivers a really good thriller. I wouldn't be surprised if we see a sequel. Then a prequel. It was good enough for that. I rated it 3 instead of 4, because I save the top rating for the truly spectacular, I can't believe how great it is, it's stupendous type of movie. A Quiet …

It’s not often a truly unique movie experience comes along. ‘A Quite Place’ is definitely one of those. Making his first big-screen debut, John Krasinski also served as co-script writer, and is the lead character in this film. Starring alongside his real-life wife, Emily Blunt, he delivers an earnest and engrossing story. At 90 minutes, this film immediately engages the audience in the narrative with only small bits of information on the actual backstory, and the story line remains highly focused and spare. With the story premise that sound brings certain death, that facet of the story is driven home in a powerful way within the first ten minutes.
Krasinski plays Lee Abbot and Blunt is his wife, Evelyn. Together they are struggling to survive this constant threat on a rural farm. …
