What did we think?
Nick says: 24 hours after seeing this my heart is still beating well above what is medically okay. A Quiet Place establishes the rules of its universe really nicely and adheres to them perfectly, delivering its thrills and tension from the first minute. A terrific debut from Krasinski who delivers a horror film that consistently keeps you on your toes and is emotionally affecting in every way.

    The very best ideas in film are usually the most simple ones, executed beautifully. Using silence as a suspense device makes every tiny little sound terrifying and establishes an anxiety that sticks with you through the whole film. Best experienced in a full cinema, where everyone else is also holding their breath (and trying not to rustle their snacks or chew too loudly). 4 stars.
