A Quiet Place

This week's movie rental was A Quiet Place ...

a 2018 American horror film directed by John Krasinski, who stars with Emily Blunt, his real-life wife .... Over three months in 2020, most of Earth's human population has been wiped out by sightless creatures with hypersensitive hearing that attack anything that makes noise.

I had seen a lot in the news about this movie when it first came out and though it's categorized as horror, I think it's science fiction too. It's unusual in a number of ways, including the virtual lack of verbal dialog - it tells the story almost completely visually.

Here's the beginning of a review ...

‘A Quiet Place’ Review: ‘Stay Silent, Stay Alive’ Says This New Horror Classic

Did you ever think that quiet – the hush in which no talk is above a whisper – could scare the hell out of you? A Quiet Place does just that, raising the stakes on terror until no one can hear you scream. As director, star and cowriter (with Bryan Woods and Scott Beck), John Krasinski hits on a killer hook: What if a family of four, among the few left alive after a monster apocalypse, can survive on their upstate New York farm as long as they don’t make a sound? Any sound. At all ....

I thought it was very good, especially for horror (not too gory), and they did an interesting job with the monsters. I recommend it.

Here's a trailer ...
