a quiet place movie review - Aussieboyreviews
DOES A QUIET PLACE CONTAIN LOTS OF HORROR VIOLENCE?
Actually, no. It’s more scary and intense than gory and bloody. There is no language, in fact there’s no speaking at all, and you can still tell what is going on. A Quiet Place definitely proves that infrequent dialogue doesn’t mean a boring film.
A family struggles for survival in apost-apocalyptic world where most humans have been killed by blind but noise-sensitive creatures. They are forced to communicate in sign language and move around in complete silence to keep the monsters at bay.

Aussie boy's thoughts
You’d think that the infrequent dialogue would just wear out the story; instead it’s the dead silence that increases the anxiety and swells the fear. So it’s obviously a survival tale that’ll keep you in exciting suspense for 90 minutes straight.
In A Quiet Place, Emily Blunt and John Krasinski perform as parents protecting their family from an intensely chilling fantasy monster. If it weren’t for their spectacular acting and the excellent child stars, the film most likely wouldn’t have been as gripping or exciting.
Since the performances, the monster and the full-on tension were the leading qualities of the film, it all adds to A Quiet Place being known as an entertaining thriller where even the sound of chewing your popcorn will ruin the effect. This is seriously an impressive monster movie experience and is an extraordinary story for young teens hooked on horror.
