In order to connect with the characters, John Krasinski edited the first two cuts of the movie without any sound. According to the director, the movie could work without any sound whatsoever. See more »
In the fireworks scene, the (first) fireworks are supposed to be high in the sky above a cornfield, and the camera shot is from ground level (looking up). But you can see that the filmmakers simply superimposed fireworks over the cornfield, as the streamers are clearly in front of the corn plants. 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.
