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 »

A Quiet Place: As good as they say
A Quiet Place was critically acclaimed and for some reason that tends to mean I won't like it. No idea why I just don't tend to follow the unwashed masses when it comes to movies, I am however mistaken sometimes.
Starring real life married couple Emily Blunt and John Krasinski, also directed by the latter this highly original horror got my attention from the get go and held it throughout.
It tells the story of a post apocalyptic world that has been torn apart by mysterious creatures that find their prey exclusively through sound. It follows one family as they try to survive in absolute silence.
The fact there is such little dialogue or really any form of audio is how A Quiet Place finds its identity. I'm not saying it hasn't been done before but it hasn't on quite this scale and it works considerably better than you'd imagine.
The cast are great, the cinematography is fantastic and the story is really well put together. To add to this I think A Quiet Place is genuinely one of the most tension filled movies I've ever seen, I squinted, I cringed, I clenched my fist, on sat on the edge of my seat multiple times throughout.
A Quiet Place deserves the critical acclaim, though it's not perfect it is however an absolute triumph and a real spectacle. Certainly one of those "Movies to see before you die" types.
If you haven't seen it yet, do something about that.
So incredibly tense in places
Just a couple of poorly thought out moments
Things I Learnt From This Movie:
Kids are a liability
Kids shouldn't be trusted with anything ever
