The title of A Quiet Place definitely does a good job of describing the movie. This thrilling movie was so quiet a majority of the time that you could hear a pin drop. But the uncomfortable silence kept viewers on their toes and alert.
Following a family in their village, they must be completely silent or else monsters in the forest will find them and kill them. The family uses sign language to communicate as they suspensefully live their life without making a sound. This unique storyline thickens when the father and kids leave the house, leaving the pregnant wife alone in the house. When the dad and children are heard, they are left to hide and fight off the monsters, while the wife is alone and now has to give birth by herself.
Because of the quietness of the movie, when seeing it in a theatre, the lack of talking or music can make it uncomfortable. With absolutely no sound at some parts, it makes it incredibly easy to be distracted by other noises around in the theatre.
Though the silence may be uncomfortable, it keeps viewers engaged and alert for any surprises. The thrilling jump scares were perfect for increasing heart rates, but then again there was not too many of them.
A Quiet Place may seem scary, but it promotes good family values and surprisingly may provoke some tears. The message of this film involves family and staying together.
This movie is a perfect mix of thrilling action but emotion. The movie will have you wanting more and wondering what comes next.
