I was impressed with this suspenseful, but somewhat impractical film. Good acting by Emily Blunt, and John Krasiniski (Director, actor and writer), and interesting story, of a post-apocalyptic where humans are driven underground to avoid hearing sensitive creatures.
This film takes place almost 1.5 years after the initial alien attacks. There are a couple of major oversights that this film does not deal with, however, it is a good attempt at an ever increasing crowded market for alien horror films.

2018's premiere "This makes NO sense/You make no sense just shut off your brain and enjoy it/How can I enjoy things without my brain?" movie. Probably best seen with a group of people, who will giggle nervously and shush one another.

Potential unrealized. Superficial and disappointing on so many levels. Actors did their best with a patchwork script.

With very little dialogue this movie still delivers!

Cool idea. Great movie. Too short, but I suppose there's only so much you can say while being quiet.

In a lifetime of movies, only a handful of features absolutely terrified me. Two--The Exorcist; Aliens--come quickly to mind. And this one.

In the two other movies mentioned, the terror (much more visceral than "horror") came and went as the stories progressed. There were many scenes that offered no fright at all. Not this one.

Because the focus is on a "just folks" family--with typical family member fallout (only this time, the odds of lethal consequences are HUGE)--It's easy to put yourself in the family's situation and ask yourself: "Could I survive?" Or, more honestly, "How long could I survive?"

The story establishes its "terror" creds almost immediately, before the title credit and that scene on the bridge sets the tone. Virtually EVERY scene is a nail-biter. No cheap scares (see Helen Mirren's disappointing "Winchester"); this is relentlessly terrifying. I'll see a lot of movies this year. I already know A Quiet Place is in my personal top ten.

This movie began as casual brainstorming by two American college kids who asked each other what would qualify as a really different alien-horror premise. And why. Three years later, the movie's star, director and rewrite man, John Krasinski took the boys' spec script to Paramount for the bucks needed: about $20 million. Bucks made at the box-office: over $330 million. Good investment. And instant stardom for Krasinski. See him now as Jack Ryan.

Sequel? Yes, green-lit for 2020, perhaps based on the college kids' ideas. Don't know if I can take it...

I guess I'm the fuddy duddy! Yes the daughter discovers her cochlear implant hearing aids high pitched distorted frequency subdues the creature. But, If the mother can blow the creatures head off with a shotgun how come the military didn't blow them all away? Otherwise really good movie!
