I give A Quiet Place Blu-ray a B+.
Imagine staring intently at the screen as the plot unfolds and all of a sudden you hear the rustling of a candy box or crunching from popcorn by someone sitting next to you. Ok, well that did happen while I saw this film in the theater but at home, it was the birds moving around in their cage or the cat eating his dinner. With this film, you notice every single sound. Why do you ask? The film is quiet due to the fact that a creature will kill you if it hears a sound.
The creature in this film reminded me a lot of Cloverfield. If you have seen that film (Cloverfield), you will definitely know what I’m talking about. Though this creature was provoked by sound, it still had a similar look, but in a smaller dimension to the Cloverfield monster.
Like I stated above this film is super quiet. If you make a noise, you’re basically dead. It was interesting to see how the Abbott family learned to adapt to survive. The Abbott’s had a daughter, Regan ( Millicent Simmonds) who was deaf. Though the others were not deaf, it was as if everyone was in her world. No one could make a sound and used sign language to communicate.
I definitely recommend this film!
