A Quiet Place (2018)
Two parents do what it takes to keep their children safe in an apocalyptic world overrun by creatures that hunt every sound they can hear. Not a single sound can be made by the family hiding in silence, if they wish to survive.
REVIEW: A Quiet Place is easily my favorite horror movie of 2018 so far. The movie starts off with a bang and hardly lets up for the entire runtime, making it zoom by at a great pace, most of which is spent putting you on the edge of your seat the entire time, like an amusement park ride. Horror movies very rarely make me jump anymore, but there were several times during this one I just about came out of my skin. This movie also has a great deal of heart in it as well, making you genuinely care for this family and what happens to them.
My only complaint really is with the CGI of the monsters. A couple shots looked ok but for the most part, especially the close-ups, they honestly didn't look much better than SyFy level, which is fine for those types of movies but for a theatrical movie you go to see in the theater, I do expect better.
But everything else here is done so incredibly well, from the acting, to the directing, to the music, to the lack of sound, just everything, that the low caliber of the effects hardly even registered as a blip on my radar while I was watching because I was so involved and invested in everything going on.
