It’s not very usual that you get to see a good scary movie. The IMDB points are mostly around 5 and honestly speaking, I don’t want to waste my time for a movie which is averagely voted.

A terrifying thriller with a surprisingly warm heart, John Krasinski’s A Quiet Place is a monster-movie allegory for parenting in a world gone very, very wrong.
Though I was sort of lucky this year to come across some really good ones of this genre. Well, let’s say, thriller/suspense, more than horror.
In that sense, after The Killing of a Sacred Deer and Mother!, A Quiet Place also made it to my top list.

A Quiet Place shreds the nerves, but it does so in a way that feels rewarding. You don’t just walk out having experienced a thrill ride, you walk out on a high, the kind of high that only comes from the best horror movies.
The movie is another post-apocalyptic one where the earth is invaded by sound-sensitive aliens. For the first 10 minutes or so, I had to play with the sound to understand what was wrong with the TV, trying to understand why there was no sound. Then I realized and remembered the title of the movie, which made sense.
The tension throughout the movie is so well kept high. Certainly every now and then you keep asking yourself how could they be so silly to make such idiotic moves that would probably produce some sound but overall, by the end of the movie, my feeling was that it definitely deserves its IMdB point. There is definitely no exaggeration in that.
I will leave you with the trailer. Watch it if you still haven’t.
