A Quiet Place is John Krasinski’s directing debut and it could not have gone better, the actor best known for the U.S. version of The Office where he portrayed Jim Halpert a paper salesman with a crush on the office secretary, has had tremendous success with only positive remarks from audiences. Krasinski starred along with his wife Emily Blunt a highly acclaimed actress who’s starred in the films Sicario and Devil Wears Prada, among others that have had massive success.

The film is based on a time where some terrifying unfamiliar creatures have taken over earth and killed everyone except for the family that was able to survive and a few unknown others. The creatures are attracted to sound meaning the family had to be completely silent, otherwise they’d risk attracting the monsters and getting killed.

The film takes audiences through an emotional journey with scenes like the “bathtub scene”, the “nail scene”, and others that made us wince and gasp. The film beyond a scary thriller was a movie about family and the extent each family member is willing to go to protect one another, especially the father in this family who took on the role of protector and provider for his family. Each actor did an excellent job at emotionally grabbing the audience and is a must see for any fan of the suspense, thriller genre.
