A Quiet Place

A Quiet Place

If they hear you, they hunt you.

John Krasinski (best known as Jim on TV’s THE OFFICE) does triple duty here, as co-writer, director and actor of one of 2018’s breakout sleeper hits, the white-knuckle thriller A QUIET PLACE. Set in a post-apocalyptic world, Krasinski and co-star Emily Blunt (who are married in real life) lead of a family of four who must navigate their lives in complete silence, lest they be hunted by mysterious, alien creatures who use sound to locate their prey.

A QUIET PLACE lives up to the ambitious challenge that it sets for itself, taking audiences on a compelling and suspenseful journey along the way.” (Screen Rant)

A QUIET PLACE artfully plays on elemental fears with a ruthlessly intelligent creature feature that’s as original as it is scary — and establishes director John Krasinski as a rising talent.” (Rotten Tomatoes)

“There are moments when the movie takes us firmly by the hand and escorts us down a darkened path, and they lead to one of the most profound of communal pleasures: the sound of a movie audience screaming as one.” (Slate)
