A family of four must live their lives in silence while hiding from creatures that hunt by sound.


Review

Very impressed by John Krasinski's A Quiet Place. A concise and effective horror about a family trying to survive quietly in rural America from blind creatures that hunt by sound.

A neat premise that offers up plenty of tense nail-biting sequences without losing sight of the strong emotional weight at its centre.

It's this latter, surprising, aspect of the film that makes it a cut above your average horror fare.

The existing relationship between real life husband and wife (and parents) Krasinski and Emily Blunt probably doesn't hurt either in building up characters you really care about but they are well matched by Millicent Simmonds and Noah Jupe as their kids.

Definitely worth a look.
