Did You Know?

Trivia

The first test screenings of the film were considered to be a disaster because audience members laughed hysterically at times, worrying the people behind the film that there was something wrong. It turned out the only reason audience members laughed was that the CGI for the monster was either not finished or was completely absent, leaving John Krasinski in a motion capture suit for scenes where he played the monster and the audience found these scenes quite funny. Further screenings were more well-received once the CGI was done. See more »

Goofs

Some of Lee and Evelyn's behavior is completely unrealistic given the situation that they're in. Beau's death, for example, could have been prevented easily if they had simply monitored his actions more closely, e.g. by not allowing him to wander around the store unsupervised/not leaving him there alone, or by using the common-sense strategy of one parent in front for recon and one in the back to keep an eye on everyone.

Tense!
2 April 2018 | by lynseylinzluSee all my reviews

A Quiet Place starts with racking up the tension which doesn't let up in a nerve shredding 1hr 25. The premise is simple, we get no back story as to why the family have to stay silent, but within 5 minutes with an unexpected moment we can see what the consequence of making noise is. From then on our focus is on this one family as they strive to stay safe in what seems like a helpless situation. I enjoyed this film immensely. I found it to be nerve shredding and so tense to watch i had to try catch my breath a few occasions as i had been holding it so long. It is the silence for a majority of the film that makes this work and i was grateful for a silent cinema hall (this i will go back to) I found myself caring for the characters (rare in horror) and hoping for a positive outcome. It also doesn't suffer from an overlong run time and imo is not for the mostpart predictable.Those who like a decent movie monster i feel will be pleasantly surprised i believe as well. Those who are looking for gory in your face horror may struggle to engage and i think coming back to my point earlier if you end up in a hall full of restless noisy people filling the silence the tension will somewhat be lost. A solid 8/10
