A Quiet Place

Review by Honey B

Director:  John Krasinski Cast: Emily Blunt, John Krasinski, Millicent Simmonds, Noah Jupe, Cade Woodward Plot: In the modern horror thriller A Quiet Place, a family of four must navigate their lives in silence after mysterious creatures that hunt by sound threaten their survival. If they hear you, they hunt you. Verdict: Only the very quiet survive in this thrilling apocalyptic thriller. Not only are the actors extremely quiet in this movie but the cinema full of viewers were also just as silent with any crunchy movie snack being left uneaten. Following the arrival of blind, rampaging monsters who track their prey via their extraordinary sense of hearing, the world has been left devastated with only a few surviving. Living in the cornfields on an isolated farm a small family are toiling to survive in this new and fragile world. They have crafted their world to eliminate as much sound as possible and with their deaf daughter Regan (Millicent Simmonds), the family is surviving using sign language. Simmonds is amazing as the feisty, hearing-impaired tween and her younger brother, played by Noah Jupe is wide-eyed and wonderful. The young actors are the ones portraying the delicacies of human existence where one minute you can be playing a simply board game and the next you are scared for your life. While the parents try to create as normal life as possible with dad tinkering on devices and trying to work out the alien’s weakness and mum keeping life steady. Both teach their children how to survive in this new world. Krasinski knows how to ratchet up the thrills and tension in this nail-biting creature feature. At times throughout this movie you will have to check if you are still breathing! (Movies are rated out of 5 stars)
