“A Quiet Place,” tells the story of the Abbott family trying to live in complete silence to hide from creatures that hunt by sound. In no way is this movie scary, but it definitely has some incredibly suspenseful moments. The amount of details each character puts into trying to remain silent is beyond brilliant. Such details include speaking in sign language, sound proofing rooms, and even painting walking paths on the home’s floor to prevent the children from walking on squeaky floorboards.
Personally, I would have to say this one of the smartest horror films I have seen in quite awhile. There are some many details in this film that I would recommend watching it a few times, so that you may pick-up on them all. This film takes scenes of children playing and turns them their ears when you realize later that the kids where not playing at all, but instead practicing their role in a planned family escape plan. The only complaint I could see anyone having with this movie would the ending. I personally liked how the movie end, but it is definitely one of those sudden cuts to black, hear the sound of a cash register ring and roll credits. To me this leaves the audience wanting more and thirsty to see a sequel.
Now, the most important question could this story line work as a Halloween Horror Nights house. I think this would make an incredible maze if it was built in the fashion of last year’s ,”Scarecrow: The Reaping.” You could even keep the facade, since the Abbott family lives on a farm with cornfields. The rest would be simple, just have sudden loud audible cues and then have a monster jump out at you.
Come on Universal make this happen please! Have you seen it and do you think this would be a good house?
