Movie Critics
A.V. Club
"A QUIET PLACE is brisk, but it’s also patient; this is one of those monster movies that builds tension from the absence of the monster, at least until the full-bore, unbroken set-piece of the second half..." -- Grade: B+
A.A. Dowd (3 Apr 2018, )
Empire
4 stars out of 5 -- "Krasinski has a longer CV as an actor than as director...but establishes himself here as a sure hand with the mechanics of nerve-shredding."
Kim Newman (17 Mar 2018, )
Hollywood Reporter
"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."
John DeFore (9 Mar 2018, )
Los Angeles Times
"[A] sensationally gripping and emotional new alien-invasion thriller from the actor and writer-director John Krasinski."
Justin Chang (5 Apr 2018, )
New York Times
"A QUIET PLACE is an old-fashioned creature feature with a single, simple hook: The creatures are blind, hungry and navigate by sound....Mr. Krasinski directs with skill and restraint."
Jeannette Catsoulis (4 Apr 2018, )
RogerEbert.com
3.5 stars out of 4 -- "John Krasinski’s A QUIET PLACE is a nerve-shredder. It’s a movie designed to make you an active participant in a game of tension, not just a passive observer in an unfolding horror."
Brian Tallerico (10 Mar 2018, )
Rolling Stone
3.5 stars out of 4 -- "[A] dazzling, devilishly clever horror film that goes beyond scares to the intangibles that define us."
Peter Travers (3 Apr 2018, )
The Atlantic
"[An] effective bit of nerve-jangling horror, which is told almost entirely without dialogue."
David Sims (7 Apr 2018, )
The Guardian
5 stars out of 5 -- "It is a cracking back-to-basics thriller that does not depend too much on what these creatures look like. Krasinski rather cleverly addresses this issue by keeping them glimpsed only subliminally at first..."
Peter Bradshaw (5 Apr 2018, )
Total Film
4 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he special effects are extraordinary and sparingly used."
Matt Glasby (2 Apr 2018, )
Variety
"[A] tautly original genre-bending exercise, technically sleek and accomplished, with some vivid, scary moments..."
Owen Glieberman (9 Mar 2018, )
Washington Post
"A creeping, increasingly queasy sense of dread pervades A QUIET PLACE, John Krasinski’s nervy thriller that marks a notable addition to the recent spate of smart, timely genre pictures."
(5 Apr 2018, )

Customer Reviews

Better be quiet, else you die!

Reviewed by on

This is only the 2nd film directed by John Krasinski, but he's clearly good at it.
The movie is set in a post-apocalyptic world overrun by blind aliens with super hearing.
So the survivors have learnt to live very quietly, to avoid attracting the vicious aliens' attention.
The performances are all really good, including the family's deaf daughter, played by deaf actress Millicent Simmonds.
Emily Blunt is great (as always).
The sound design is excellent, making great use of silence as both a tension builder and a means of focusing on the visuals.
I thoroughly enjoyed this movie and recommend it highly.
A great family movie, but too scary for young children.

Scary in a modern way, no cheap screams here.
