When you think of a silent movie, you obviously don’t think of a horror movie, but ‘A Quite Place’ is here to break all the rules. Okay yes, it is not technically a silent movie, but it’s a quiet movie about a really quiet place.

All jokes aside, this horror movie looks very promising, because of the whole premise, and the movie may be silent, but it is quite deadly. The plot seems quite original, and is a little twisted. Basically, the movie revolves around a family living in world with mysterious supernatural forces that have surfaced everywhere. Since these forces are attracted by sound, the family tries their best to live in a quiet, secluded farm away from any noise whatsoever.

The movie by John Krasinski, where he plays the lead along with his wife Emily Blunt, had its premiere at the ongoing South by Southwest Festival in Austin, Texas, and so far, people are loving it. Everyone who has watched ‘The Quiet Place’ so much that the movie currently sits at 100% on Rotten Tomatoes.

Critics are praising the film for its atmosphere, Krasinski’s tense direction and Blunt’s performance. It also seems like a huge shift for Krasinski as he is mainly known for his starring role in the beloved comedy show ‘The Office’.

So far, people on Twitter can’t get enough of it.

#AQuietPlace is INCREDIBLY effective; my hands hurt from clenching my fists this whole time. So tense people were actually screaming. #SXSW2018

You had me at original.

Holy shit, A QUIET PLACE is for real. John Krasinski made a horror movie that’s wholly original and, btw, really, REALLY scary. #sxsw

Deliciously terrifying? I’ve never heard that ever before, but what a perfect fit.

#AQuietPlace is a masterclass in suspense. It weaponizes your own screams against you. The tension is so taut your stomach will turn in relentless knots. Totally deliciously terrifying. #SXSW18

I can’t wait to watch it.

Here’s the thing… Audible horror is my kryptonite. A QUIET PLACE is the MOST audible horror movie I’ve ever seen. Emotionally, I’m spent. Intellectually, I recognize that this movie fucking rules. Krasinski, Blunt, the kids, all top notch. #SXSW

Are there any good jump scares? Very interested to see those.

A Quiet Place milks its high concept (make a sound and a monster will get you) for all it is worth. Justifiably filled with jump scares but it never feels cheap. Whole cast was great. Smart, fun, tense, different. Big recommend from me.

Yes, who would’ve?

A QUIET PLACE: who would’ve thought John Krasinski had an all-timer horror picture in him? One of best mainstream creature features in years with a wild pure cinema experimental streak. What a brilliant bit of a genre cinema that’s equal parts Spielberg and Romero. #SXSW2018

Holy moly, indeed.

A QUIET PLACE: Holy moly what a ride! I now suspect @johnkrasinski to be a cruel human, because he absolutely tortures the audience… albeit in a wonderful, terrifying & emotional way. I barely breathed throughout the whole film 😱 #SXSW
