Make no sound

Hola everyone.

And welcome back to the horror show – the part of this blog where I introduce you to my newest horror movie favorites. And today is going to be about the fantastic masterpiece  called “A Quiet Place” – definitely one of the most gripping and thrilling movies I’ve ever seen in my entire life. I forgot how to breathe normally while watching this one and that really says something.


Okay, so let’s first discuss what this movie is actually about. Here’s a short description I got from rotten tomatoes, that pretty much sums up the whole plot of the movie:

In the modern horror thriller A QUIET PLACE, a family of four must navigate their lives in silence after mysterious creatures that hunt by sound threaten their survival. If they hear you, they hunt you.


I know, I know, that’s not really much. But I can tell you, this storyline is as thrilling as it is original and trust me, it is enough. And it plays with such an elementar thing as sound. I mean, try making no sound for an hour or even just thirty minutes. You won’t make it, trust me. Because it’s super hard, nearly impossible. Nearly everything we do creates some sort of sound, some sort of noise. So creating creatures that have this special feature of hearing everything and then going after it is something I’ve never seen before and I can just applaud John Krasinski for this intelligent and original idea. This is actually his first movie which he worked on as a director and I’m pretty sure that we will hear even more from him.


I seriously loved this movie. I have to say that I admire movies that really drag me into their stories and this one perfected that move. I felt like I was right there with them, from the first second on. And I’m pretty sure I wasn’t the only one, because the cinema was dead-silent. You could have heard a pin dropping to the ground, it was that silent in the room, I’m not even exaggerating. The people next to us had a box full of popcorn with them, I don’t think that they even dared to touch it once. I mean, if a movie can create such a feeling in an audience, it just has to be a amazing, there’s no other possible way.


And apart from that I loved the acting. Usually, dialogues turn a good movie into a great one. But in this case there weren’t any dialogues at all, in 80 % of the movie it’s completely silent. Emily Blunt and John Krasinski (which are a couple on and off-screen, so the chemistry between them is fantastic) and the other young actors playing their children (the one playing the girl is deaf in real life too) are such damn good actors that you don’t even need any talking. It would actually be nearly too much, because you know everything by just looking at their faces and their actions. It’s mind-blowing, seriously.


And last but not least I liked that the movie isn’t overdramatic in any way. If there weren’t these alien creatures that want to kill everything and everyone, it would actually be a pretty basic story. There aren’t any unrealistic deaths, nothing that would make you say “Oh really? Did they have to do that? Yeah, like stuff like this would actually happen…”. Everything about it seems right, although we only get to see such a small part of a huge story – three days to be exact.


So yeah, this movie just does it all right. I was blown away when I walked out of the cinema and I’m sure I wasn’t the only one. Movies like this one are the reason why I love going to and watching movies so much. Movies like this one deserve to be seen, they have to be seen. And again, props to everyone included in creating this masterpiece, you did your job bloody well.


I of course can only recommend this movie to you guys, so if you get the chance, please go and give this one a chance, you won’t regret it, I swear. And if any of have already seen it or gave any more questions, please don’t hesitate to leave your thoughts and comments down below. And yeah, until then I wish you all an amazing week and hope you enjoyed this post. And, as always, thanks for reading. x
