A non-stop thrill ride that uses the advantage of its constant silence to build up the next big scare is the only way to describe A Quiet Place.

The reason this movie works so well is that it’s a pure thriller with an enjoyable concept. This movie also smartly places itself after these monsters came to earth and not during the time they first arrived it would have been a whole different movie and wouldn’t have been as unique of a film.

Every part of this movie is well thought out, like how the family finds solutions to everyday problems, like using lettuce instead of plates and covering the roads with sand to muffle footsteps. The family must communicate through sign language throughout the movie not only because of the danger of noise but because of their deaf daughter.

A Quiet Place is not a sequel or a reboot, and it’s even not trying to set up a cinematic universe as many movies franchises are trying to do. It’s a simple thriller with a unique take on the horror genre. The movie has grossed $151,335,885 worldwide and has almost made 100,000,000 domestically.

Emily Blunt and John Krasinski play the husband and wife in a family struggling to survive on a secluded farm in a world where every sound you make can be your last. Blunt and Krasinski are also married in real life, along with Millicent Simmonds, who plays their deaf daughter, who is deaf in real life brings a layer of authenticity in their performances not seen in many other movies.

Throughout the movie there is an everlasting theme of what you would do to protect the ones you love, and the movie uses this theme to give some heartwarming scenes amongst the intensity of the rest of the movie. Because almost all the movie is told without words the movie relies on a lot of visual storytelling to get you invested in the world John Krasinski has created. A Quiet Place is a thriller with an enormous amount of care put in every shot and is worth experiencing for yourself.
