Two parents do what it takes to keep their children and soon to be newborn safe in a world full of creatures hunting every sound they can hear. Not a sound can be heard from the family hiding in silence, but all it takes is one noise and everything can go wrong.
MovieGuy Guest Review by David J. Lieto
I’m a cinephile. That’s for certain, but my addiction has specific parameters. Story’s always been my hook. If a film’s story engages my attention, gives my heart the beat and its warmth, and makes me want to watch every minute, while its plot line doesn’t becomes obvious, I might as well be bought, packaged, and delivered. It’s a big bill to fill, for sure. I’ve fallen asleep in enough films that my wife now refuses my offer to go see some great movies. It’s the boring or not engrossing films that should be worried. That’s when you might say, I really become a Nap-o-phile.
I knew i wasn’t going to fall asleep during John Krasinski’s feature, A Quiet Place. I had heard so much about it. A family trying to survive in extreme conditions and difficulties. The difficulties are unmistakable and scary!
When I decided to first watch the film it was described as a Horror film. Technically, maybe. I’d describe it as a Creature Feature, in the purest sense. But whatever kind of film you might call it, I loved the many clever aspects of the story, the cinematography, the acting, and the suspense. Oh, there was a lot of suspense! Go see it!
