A Quiet Place

A Quiet Place ★★★★

Better silent film than The Artist, I’ll say that. The modern similarities that come to mind are the creatures of Signs with the aesthetic of It Comes at Night but with better storytelling, suspense and family dynamic. I was blown out of the water with its emotional weight, bare bones yet completely fulfilling plot and beautifully directed desolate locale. So much is conveyed visually that you can’t appreciate enough how much it trusts its horror savvy audience. It succeeds with its well earned and never over exaggerated scares. Everything you want from modern horror.
