Goofs

The whole premise of the story makes no sense. It is highly probable that the vesps would eliminate all creatures on the earth since only humans would know that they have to be completely silent, so why didn't the people just set up some fishing nets with sirens in the middle to capture the creatures?

A Confused Movie
10 April 2019 | by Atrey_DourySee all my reviews

It is trite to say that 'Quite Place' it is not. Right at the beginning we are told that this is going to be a story from the point of view of our showcase family. But that view point is utterly muddled and addled. In fact, narrative is so inane that I am riddled with a question: why the creatures? The family might well have been on a holiday gone wrong. Perhaps creatures were felt necessary to lessen the characters over the feature length. Suffice to say that it is a movie that never reached its intended destination or worst reached it indeed.

Creatures are interesting and competently modelled. The creature effects are par. The photography is good and acting is passable. The direction and the script leave much to be desired.

Watch it once and move on. There's nothing here to return. For those who are picky about their consumption. Avoid steadfastly.
