    A Quiet Place (2018 John Krasinski)

    Writer, director and actor John Krasinski (The Office) has really stepped up his game here with his third feature and gone in a more serious direction with his film about a family who are forced to live in silence while hiding from creatures that hunt by sound. Sure, its basically a theatrical gimmick that everybody has to be silent but it is done with class and heart. The cast is good including Krasinki's wife in the film and real life, Emily Blunt (Edge of Tomorrow) who is involved in some of the best set pieces. The tension slowly builds and is very effective in this horror that is sure to be a crowd pleaser.

    8/10

    Some friends of mine saw this last night and thought it was very good. The entire premise of being quiet is actually pretty cool they relayed. Looking forward to checking it out!
