A Quiet Place Movie Review
A Quiet Place: Even the audiences would maintain silence for fear of the movie monsters
A Quiet Place is a horror movie with no nerve chilling sound effects. Horror looks more horrible when served with silence. The film takes the audiences to a time where bloodsucking blind creatures rule the planet. And their weapon is sound. These creatures look like grasshoppers; they have pointed nails to tear their targets and big sharp teeth to munch the meat.
Maintain silence or become a dead meat
If you produce a sound, you’re dead the next moment. It’s not a warning but a bitter truth. Carnivorous blind insects with iron-jaws and steel hands are the new rules of the planet. They are swift but they follow only sound. They can’t see but hear and they can hear even your heartbeat.
Lee Abbott shifts to a barn with his wife Evelyn Abbott and progeny. His daughter Regan Abbott is deaf but son Marcus Abbott can hear. Evelyn is three-month pregnant and expecting delivery in the coming months. Lee builds a sound proof device to protect his family. The monsters are always nearby and they can attack with a slightest provocation.
Quiet is painful
Evelyn Abbott gets labor pain but what causes her to scream is a pin she steps on. It becomes difficult to bear pain without screaming. She gives birth to her third child but soon the monsters arrive to feed on the baby and mother. Regan and Marcus try to diver the monsters and they succeed but Lee comes to rescue of his children. Now safety of the family falls on the young shoulders of Marcus.
Surviving in the quiet
Regan takes the sound-proof in his hands and prepares to fight the monsters waiting to feed on the family at the lowest sound. Regan attracts the blind insects for a fight and Marcus takes care of the newborn baby and her grieving mother. The entire family comes together to give a tough fight to the monster-size-insects.
Nerve chilling moments

A Quiet Place First Look & Poster
The poster has Evelyn Abbott trying to muffle her screams with right hand while looking for monsters that are on her right side. Her locks are untidy and she’s wearing a woolen jacket. She looks tensed and her face and hands are smeared with dust. She’s the only face on poster.
Why watch the movie?
It is a horror movie but closer to science fiction than superstition. Also, there are no special sound effects or anything that looks unreal. The horror in the movie isn’t the monster-size insects but it’s about maintaining quiet. How could one live without producing any sound when the monsters close-by can even hear the heartbeat. It is a good story for entire family and also it has a message for kids.
