    Ghost-Chiller!

    John Krasinski's well-crafted ''A Quiet Place" has its elements set in 2020, when some hypersensitive-for-hearing creatures are terrorizing the world, and a family on an escape, a silent escape which it must be. Any sound can make them come, and kill.
    This horror film has a post-apocalyptic nature, and it well-develops its monstrous elements: screeching, howling as well as indestructible creatures. And it also makes us develop this emotional connect with the Abbott family- and it has primarily to do with the film's writing, stranded with moments which will surely tug at your heartstrings, and Bryan Woods and John himself have written the film in a way that you never feel that the wordless film has any sort of lacking in effort. If anywhere it does, it complements those bits with extraordinary effortlessness. The cast, especially Krasinski, Millie Simmonds and Emily Blunt are exceptionally performative.
    Let me warn you, the film may get indulgent at times. But if you want to see stunningly entertaining cinema which, without unrestrained thrills gives you staggering, sweeping chills, something which numbs your mind and gives you a new hope, ''A Quiet Place'' is certainly perfect. I'm going with 4 stars out of 5. You have seen nothing like this.

    It's a wild concept, alright. A world where humans are hunted and ruthlessly killed by unknown blind creatures who seem to have ultra-sensitive ears and zero tolerance for sound. John Krasinski directs and acts in this emotional thriller that has been sugarcoated with a familial arc just to help it tug at your heart strings as you watch his character and his family of a wife and kids live their life while hiding from these creatures and working towards a future where everyone is wise. The lack of dialogues made A Quiet Place a splendid experience for me because like the creatures I hate noise. But the contrived drama - between Krasinski's character and his daughter - put me slightly off, which was later aggravated by the multiple holes in the plot. The biggest issue was the lack of insight - what are these creatures, where did they come from, and what exactly is their problem - because at one scene they seem to be tipped off even by the slightest noise and the next the characters are running with all their might (even though it's on sand). Non-heterogeneous sequences that make up A Quiet Place makes it an average watch, and a shorter one, thankfully. It could excite people who don't think while watching. Escapists will love this and rave about this. Rumor has it they still do it on Reddit. TN.
