Do you remember the critically acclaimed television show The Office? If you are aware of this show, then you for sure know the character known as “Jim” portrayed by John Krasinski. Acting in several movies since the end of The Office in 2013, Krasinski is a steady worker. His most recent work, a movie redefining the horror genre, A Quiet Place is truly a work of art. Krasinski acts and directs a mind-boggling movie with the use of silence, division in the family, and a theme of the unknown. Krasinski’s character “Lee Abbott” must work to keep his family alive and thriving in the apocalyptic world where A Quiet Place takes place.

 

For a world where silence is the key to survival, Krasinski decided to direct A Quiet Place with about 85 percent of the movie dead silent. He uses the lack of noise to bring forth a primordial fear of life and death; with this, he can use silence to immerse your sense of sight in a world where your eyes must watch and listen. With the silence in film, we see the consequences of noise; in only one year it can drive people to do unimaginable things…

 

Krasinski took full advantage of silence, not only using it to portray fear but to bring division in the Abbott Family. In the first five minutes of the movie, an incident leads Lee’s daughter, Regan, to drift away from the rest of the family. Without being to fully communicate, the drift begins to widen, which leads to complications later. Lee and his son, Marcus, venture to a location in which they can freely talk, but at what consequence? Lee’s wife, Evelyn (Emily Blunt), is in need of medical care; her procedure is extremely painful, however, she needs to be awake for it to be completed safely. In a world where the slightest creak of a board can kill one, how does one not yelp, groan, or scream when in painful situations?

 

The main fear of the movie is, for the most part, scary due to the lack of information the viewers and characters have. Krasinski made a monster scary by using the government’s press releases about what one needs to do to survive; however, he does this without saying what the threat they need to survive is. This adds an element of surprise and fear to the story. Some moments in this movie will have viewers on the edge of their seats with blankets to their eyes. How will the Abbott Family survive in the harsh land where noise kills? You can find out by watching A Quiet Place on Amazon Prime Video or simply buy the movie at the nearest Walmart. This movie is a must watch for scare junkies and timid people alike; however, with the movie’s rating of PG-13 this is not a movie for young children. I would advise not to show A Quiet Place to children under 13.
