Aw man, I was super excited to see this movie and it did not disappoint. Co-written and directed by, as well as acted in by, one of the world’s favorite people, Jim Halpert, A Quiet Place is tense, quiet (lol), and very exciting. The movie starts on a fairly mercenary and harrowing scene, and the intense quietude kept me on the edge of my seat among scenes terrifying, serene, or sweet. Quick synopsis: blind aliens have fallen to Earth, and they hunt by sound, instantly drawn to even fairly quiet noises. The monsters are huge, and immensely strong, and seemingly impossible to kill, with rows of nasty teeth and sharp claws that can easily dig through metal. The movie focuses a little heavily on the sanctity of family and domesticity, and includes a pretty silly bloody-hand-slapping-glass-jump-scare, but those are the only downsides I can see to this gripping film. Total recommend, watch it and enjoy it!
