REVIEWS OF CRITICS :

The critic’s review of any movie is equally important as that of the audience’s thoughts. A film must meet the critics’ expectations to create a mark in the industry. Below are a few critic’s reviews of the movie “A Quiet Place”;

Times of India – the Times of India has given the movie a 4-star out of 5. The critics say it is an unnerving film that captures the audience’s fear and interest. It doesn’t contain useless, cheap horror but engages the movie’s audience by evolving a series of uncomfortable and fearful events. John Krasinski cleverly played the “fear of the unknown” card by not revealing much about these mysterious creatures and creating suspense. The movie’s casting has been a perfect choice, especially with the casting of a real deaf actress, Millicent Simmonds, who plays the role of the deaf girl called Regan in the movie. The chemistry between John and Emily (projecting husband and wife) is brilliant. The real-life couple didn’t fail to maintain the spark between them. Overall, it is a good casting, story, life, plot, and horror movie.

Hindustan Times – Rohan Nahar, a critic of Hindustan Times, has described the movie as “one of the decade’s best horror movies. You will be haunted for days.” The movie has a rare ability to evoke the audiences’ psychological senses and physical ones. As Krasinski’s first horror movie, he has done a wonderful job. The movie has done an excellent job of portraying the raw emotions of a human being. The actors have done a wonderful job projecting their feelings with actors have done a wonderful job projecting their emotions. It is one movie that deserves to be watched in the theatres.

New York Times – The New York Times gives another positive review of “A Quiet Place.” The movie excellently builds up the audience’s suspense and, more importantly, manages to hold it. Mr. Krasinski directs with great skill and restraint. He knows his job exactly and makes out a brilliant horror movie. The use of background sounds and the actors’ facial expressions to communicate with each other is bang on point and forces the audience to give them their undivided attention.

Overall, the movie will set a benchmark both in the minds of the audience and the critics.

“A Quiet Place: Full Plot & Story”

“A Quiet Place” is a must-watch for every horror movie lover. John Krasinski perfectly justifies the ideal blend of a horror sci-fi movie. The movie is set in the backdrop of the year 2020, where an invasion of mysterious sightless alien creatures with super sensitive hearing power wipes out most of the human race from the face of the earth. Amongst all this chaos, the movie plot opens with the Abbot family (husband and wife and their three children – Beau, Marcus, and Regan) navigating the ghost town, scavenging through an almost empty story. The family uses American sign language to communicate not only with their deaf daughter, Regan but also with the rest of the family. With the approaching sunset, they decide to return to their house. On the way back, Beau powers on his space shuttle toy, which he had taken from the store, and soon enough, is seized by an alien creature and killed before his father, Lee (John Krasinski), can help him.

The story then leaps for one year. The situation of the family and the surroundings remaining the same, in fact, only worsens to live with the guilt of the death of the Buea. The movie is nerve-wracking. Every sound that the family makes ends up with consequences. The Abbot family sticks together, fights through many bone-chilling situations, and escapes the mysterious creatures just by inches. Emily Blunt, who plays the character of Evelyn, wife of Lee, is in an advanced pregnancy stage and eventually gives birth to a way baby boy in a near-death escaping situation from the aliens. With a twist of a series of unfortunate and life-risking events, the family eventually finds a way to kill the sightless alien creatures – with special help from Regan. It is interesting to see the turn of events and the gradual discovery of a way to end the aliens.

The movie, for sure, will keep you on your feet and will never fail to miss a moment of gasping. Well, maybe most of your time will go in gasping or clenching your teeth together. And this is exactly what a good horror movie does to you.

DIRECTION & MUSIC

This is the first horror movie directed by John Krasinski, and he has done a terrific job in the first one itself. A horror movie is the most difficult one to make after a comedy movie. The smarter and scarier movies know it is not how much you show to the audience but how little. And director John Krasinski does the job bang on. He successfully hits the right keynotes and brings out the best of the situation, showing the least more to the audience. The audience is constantly engaged in the movie. The tension in the film is unbearable sometimes. The opening scene, where the family communicates in sign language and facial expression, is a brilliant projection and shows John’s best work as a director. We all know how difficult it is to create a dialogue-less movie, and John has done something similar using the least dialogue among the family. The casting of the film is excellent. All the actors have done a brilliant job of expressing themselves with mere sign language or facial expressions. The casting of an actual deaf actor, Millicent Simmonds, has worked wonders for the film.

As the movie has the least number of dialogues exchanged between the family in the entire film, the background sound and the music crop up to utmost importance. The crew avoided noise on the sets so that the diegetic sounds could be recorded. Then again, John didn’t want it to be a silent film, so a traditional music score was added. Erik Aadahl and Ethan Van Der Ryn worked as sound editors. Composer Marco Beltrami provided the music to the good editors so that it wouldn’t interfere with the good design of the film throughout.

BOX OFFICE REVIEWS:

The movie was released on 6 April 2018 and has bagged good reviews. The film was made with a budget of 17 million US dollars, yet “A Quiet Place” made a roaring opening at the box office with a whopping 50 million US dollars in the box office in the first week. The movie earned another 32 million in the second week and has certainly made a record in horror movies’ history. Overall, the film is a one-time watch and a “must-watch” for all those horror and thriller fans. So, catch the movie in the theaters near you at the earliest. Before booking, look for “TicketNew movie Offers” on sites that can provide exciting discount coupons, cash-backs, or more. Oh, and don’t forget to dig into your favorite tub of popcorn, better still than searching in your partner’s arm while experiencing the unbearable suspense and horror!
