A Quiet Place

I originally did not want to see “A Quiet Place” starring Emily Blunt and directed and co-starring John Krasinski. It looked like a dumb horror movie, but the reviews sounded interesting. Boy, was I pleasantly surprised! The story is about a post-apocalyptic family surviving aliens who hunt them down through sound. They are only able to live by keeping completely silent. Sounds crazy, doesn’t it? Let me tell you that this is one of the most suspenseful films I have ever seen. There isn’t much blood and carnage, but the anticipation kept me on the edge of my seat. I expected that I would give this film no more than two stars out of five. Instead, I am giving it four. It’s a really great scary movie.
