A Quiet Place A tense horror movie that explores fear of survival when the ability to be silent means life or death.

If they hear you, they hunt you.

The surviving family of four must live their lives in silence as mysterious creatures that hunt by sound threaten to kill the rest of them. As their family prepares to welcome a new member they must move beyond past mistakes in order to protect each other from the predatory menace.

Evelyn Abbott is the matriarch of the Abbott household and is preparing to bring a fourth child into a deadly world where a loud noise could summon a horrifying creature to attack whatever made it. Lee Abbott is the patriarch of the family Abbott who is trying to figure out the weakness of the menacing creatures while making a working hearing aide for his daughter & is willing do anything to protect his wife and children. Marcus Abbot is the oldest son among the Abbotts who is not sure he is up to the responsibilities thrust upon in this new environment. Regan Abbott is the eldest child who doesn’t understand why she is not allowed to do more in the family & blames her deafness for costing a family member their life.

A Quiet Place is easily one of the best horror films of 2018 as it uses silence to build tension in an original way. This movie will have you on the edge of your seat as you try to anticipate where the next fright will come from. The cast is wonderful as they sell the terror of living in such an oppressive climate like persons of interest labeled undesirables forced into hiding from the enforcers of new despotic laws. John Krasinki proves himself a triple threat of directer, co-writer and actor of his third film, but first film in the genre of horror. This is a powerful bit of cinema for the way it makes you pay attention to details that you would have taken for granted in another kind of movie. This motion picture brought to mind such films as Don’t Breathe, Detroit, The People Under The Stairs & Critters. I rate this movie a 4 & 1/2 out of 5.
