A Quiet Place

A Quiet Place ★★★½

Reviewed on Cinema Eclectica #155 - The Hills Have Ears

Tense and well-made yet underdeveloped in its lore and world-building, John Krasinski's A Quiet Place, to its credit, is the best film Platinum Dunes has ever done. As a survival horror, A Quiet Place thrives on the sound design, thrilling performances (Emily Blunt. Just Emily Blunt.), and the intense suspense sequences - the birth scene being a particular favourite of mine. Where I'm not so sold on is the generic monster and the black hole of questions left unanswered in fighting the creature, escaping the creature, or anything to do with the creature. It's a slight shame but props to Krasinski's commitment to making a decent popcorn horror flick out of Michael Bay's unwelcomed production company.
