    A Quiet Place


    Too loud.

    With intriguing premise and carefully built atmosphere, A Quiet Place is a tense, stylish horror film. 

    John Krasinski's direction is really impressive (really looking forward to his future directorial efforts) and from the technical standpoint the film works rather brilliantly. Camera work, production design and sound design are all brilliantly executed. Both Krasinski and his wife Blunt give very strong performances. 

    The film is a powerful tale of family, love and care. The relationships between characters are well…

    I don't even consider myself as a horror fan, but making a horror film this raw, wild and daring, without much false notes, certainly earns my respect.

    And that ending is just stunning. Wow.
