What the Critics say
|Cape Argus / The Star|
Ann Hornaday Inventive horror bristles with tension.
Gabi Zietsman A Quiet Place is not a relaxing watch, but well worth the stress for such a well-thought-out horror that creates a deep connection between the characters and the audience. Not only does it have a layer of family drama playing out, it’s also a commentary on the noisy lives that we live, and how much we take for granted the ability to be able to express ourselves through our spoken words.
Tomatometer A Quiet Place artfully plays on elemental fears with a ruthlessly intelligent creature feature that’s as original as it is scary -- and establishes director John Krasinski as a rising talent.
Jeffrey M. Anderson Gripping monster movie has lots of tension, some blood.
