Horror movies have really gone downhill a lot. Since the nineties, the horror genre has turned out more bad films than any other genre, mostly because they can be made cheaply with little deference to the quality or their staying power. A Quiet Place is an exception to apathetic horror films that fill theaters. John Krasinski and Emily Blunt star as Evelyn and Lee, a pair of parents living in a post-apocalyptic world where too much noise gets people killed. The emotional impact of this film is truly awesome and everyone involved gives a great performance. The child actors are talented and they threaten to upstage their on-screen parents throughout the entire film. This film is a revelation in a world full of stale horror and it’s originality is refreshing.
The absence of sound makes this film all the more frightening and it deserves multiple screenings to be truly appreciated.
Krasinski is a rising talent as a director and this film proves that not just anyone can do it, I give it…
