Foul-mouthed mutant mercenary Wade Wilson (a.k.a. Deadpool), brings together a team of fellow mutant rogues to protect a young boy with supernatural abilities from the brutal, time-traveling cyborg Cable.
Two parents do what it takes to keep their children safe in a world full of creatures hunting every sound they can hear. Not a sound can be heard from the family hiding in silence, but all it takes is one noise and everything can go wrong.Written by
During filming, the crew avoided making noise so diegetic background sounds (e.g., the sound of rolling dice on a game board) could be recorded; the sounds were amplified in post-production. See more »
A person deaf from birth would not know how loud a sound various actions would make, so likely could not deliberately live quietly. However, a deaf person with hearing aids or cochlear implants can make connections between collisions, vibrations etc. as making sounds. In addition to this, Regan would have been trained by her family to be very vigilant about potential noise-causing actions, as seen in her hearing brother's intense anxiety regarding making noise. It is also possible Regan was born hearing and became deaf later in life. See more »
Alfred Hitchcock's influence is all over this tense, atmospheric horror thriller by director-star John Krasinski. From the tight shots to the ever-present suspense to the inventive peril the characters find themselves in, this is one of the most effective genre movies of the last few years. Co-leads Krasinski and Emily Blunt make a terrific onscreen pair, demonstrating a believable chemistry that's often missing when real-life married partners play on-screen lovers, and both have a number of crackerjack scenes. Their young co-stars, Millicent Simmonds and Noah Jupe, also deliver tremendous performances, and overall the dynamics among the family members are believable and heighten the tension tremendously by raising the stakes. Highly recommended even for non-horror fans.
