A Quiet Place ★★★½

Kudos to Jim from The Office. A Quiet Place is good, nothing special, but its an good take on “the family unit surviving in the wild” horror sub-genre.

I can almost see this flick as fan fiction, or a side-story to “The Last of Us.” The creatures are very similar to the Clickers for me, mixed with maybe the Licker from Resident Evil, a dash of Xenomorph and a slip of the Bat-Rat Monster in Graveyard Shift.

With a brisk 90 minute runtime, you don’t get to fully invest in the family, but you know they’ve seen some shit, but don’t also understand all of their motivations for doing one very specific thing that could cost them all their lives.

But hey, it’s something new and different and I commend this film for that.
