A Quiet Place is a horror thriller film co-written and directed by John Krasinski, who is also working as a lead character alongside Emily Blunt, his real-life wife.
The film sets in the year 2020, where Earth has been invaded by a species of mysterious creatures with unimaginable hearing ability – which they use to hunt their prey, i.e., humans. Resultantly, most of Earth’s human population has been wiped out. The film mainly focuses on the family consisting of, husband Lee (John Krasinski), wife Evelyn (Emily Blunt), sons Marcus and Beau, and their deaf daughter Regan, who are living alone in the whole town maintaining the complete silence to hide from those deadly creatures. Now this family must run by rules – without making a sound in any condition, in order to survive in this life-threatening situation.
The film is very well focused on content, depicting the story of a family’s survival against deadly creatures with ultra hearing capabilities. There are many intense and terrifying scenes which make audience bite their nails while keeping quiet. The audience can’t even make any movements on their seats or even they just cannot cough properly sometimes, which could break the silence. The plot is very refreshing and the film has successfully maintained the fine balance between its horror and thriller aspects. The performances by every single actor are so real and applauding, which makes characters compelling, and which actually makes the audience root them. And where the film manages to bring the audience to its character’s emotional state, and make the audience feel for them, then that’s where the film truly succeeds in its moto.
Verdict : Just Go for it. Get Thrilled. Sshhh… Just don’t make any sound.
Rating : 4.2/5
