Acting/ Performance

Comments:  
This film has a stellar cast from top to bottom. Everyone brought their A-game, and had excellent chemistry with each other. So much was expressed with so few lines. 


Writing/Screenplay

Comments: 
This film gets major points for originality. It is not only an original story, but it's also a thriller like none other. It's presents a fear not used in films before - fear of being too loud. And the tension in the story never lets down - it is intense right from the jump, and continues that way into the end, always keeping the audience on the edge of their seats.

Cinematography

Comments:
There was so much presented on the screen without the actors even having to say anything. So much of the story was explained to us just visually. 

Costume Design

Comments:
I think the costume design was good. They look like scavengers in a post-apocalypse world, but then still like a traditional farm family that was trying. The girls still wore dresses and skirts and the guys were in flannel. They looked the part of a family using whatever they could find, but still holding to their values. 

Editing/Special Effects

Comments:
The outstanding special effects in this film was really the sound. And the sound was so great, that it gets points in both categories. Also the monster looked real, but unworldly.

Sound/Music

Comments: 
Sound was everything in this film. The sound or lack of sound was really the driving force of the movie. This film effectively used music and sound effects to create tension and draw focus. The sound was like an extra character on the screen - showing the audience where to look and telling the audience how to feel. 

Overall Rating (average the rating numbers above)  - 4.5/5.0

Recommendation: Watch! 😏

A Quiet Place is an instant modern classic in the thriller genre. Anyone who is a fan of the horror/ thriller genre should definitely watch this movie. This movie is one of a kind. It has the feel of the classic thriller movies we love, but with an original twist. This film is well-written and even better performed. This film draws you in from the beginning, and keeps you on the edge of your seat. This feel masterfully uses sound and music to create tension and intensity. The quieter it gets, the louder it seems. This film really takes your breathe away, yet it is not overtly scary. This film doesn't fall victim to the overuse of jump scares, but it could definitely cause you to jump! Overall, I would definitely recommend this film. It's both interesting and original, and you won't regret watching it.


Au Revoir,
