John Krasinski stars opposite his wife, Emily Blunt in this stressful thriller. This is a very intense movie. I was on the edge of my seat and totally engaged the entire time. It is beautifully shot and perfectly acted. The effects for the creature are very good. We hardly see the creature. Krasinski sited Jaws as his inspiration for this film's ability to continually allude to the creature's presence without constantly showing it. Emily Blunt's performance is probably the best, but every actor in this movie does a great job. Krasinski also co-wrote this, and he and the other writers did great. This movies storyline is very simple, but is so tactfully executed. The script is smart. The lack of dialogue in this film makes sense, and the silence of this movie is handled perfectly to maintain a sense of fear the whole 90 minutes of it's runtime. The use of sound effects and lighting really help elevate it above other horror genre flicks. In fact, it's sound mixing is very well done. "A Quiet Place" may not be a nightmare inducing piece, but it will make your stress while you're watching it. In the theatre we were in, we could hear people in the audience trying to carefully get their candy out of the packages. It was dead quiet because everyone was so enthralled by what they were witnessing on screen. It could have maybe been a little longer with it's runtime, but it covered nearly everything it needed to in it's brief time. Now this may be a horror film by definition, but it is really a film about "what would you do to protect your family?" This movie is not just a bunch of cheap thrills, but is also emotional. I never thought a horror film could provoke tears, but this one did. Even with a PG-13 rating, this film hits all the feels. Overall, I give this movie a 9/10.
