Whereas so many scary movies are rooted in a backhanded, ironic breed of cynicism - what's more monstrous in monster movies than the people trying to survive the monsters? - A Quiet Place appeals to the better angels of our nature.
[John] Krasinski's skills behind the camera shine as he takes a premise that could be treated with a B-movie style zaniness and regards the threat with reverence to generate a moving story about the anxieties that come with protecting your family.
Krasinski blends genres seamlessly and to great effect. It is one of the most intense theater experiences I can remember and yet the familial aspects are just as grounded and touching as the monster moments are terrifying.
A Quiet Place is deceptively simple, with a straightforward horror premise. It is the depths the film goes to in its exploration of just how difficult this life would be that make it more than its gimmick suggests.
A Quiet Place perfectly uses silence to generate high intensity into this monster flick. While it is suspenseful and exciting, it is also a film about the dynamics between family members in a post-apocalyptic world.
