Foul-mouthed mutant mercenary Wade Wilson (AKA. Deadpool), brings together a team of fellow mutant rogues to protect a young boy with supernatural abilities from the brutal, time-traveling cyborg, Cable.
Two parents do what it takes to keep their children safe in a world full of creatures hunting every sound they can hear. Not a sound can be heard from the family hiding in silence, but all it takes is one noise and everything can go wrong.Written by
John Krasinski almost turned down this film just as he was about to start work on the series Jack Ryan (2018). When asked by the producers if he'd be interested in appearing in a horror film, John replied that he did not do horror. But when he was presented with the premise about a 'family that can't make any noise and you have to figure out why,' he jumped on board straight away. See more »

I'll be honest, when I saw the trailer, I felt like it showed the whole movie, assuming that the birth scene would be the finale of the film, but it happens less than half way through the film and the film had so much more to offer. It was eternally intense thriller that kept me and everyone else in the theater on the edge of their seats. I was also worried that the film wouldn't effectively portray the silence and intensity, boy was I wrong, the films quietness and also the way it was filmed gave a true sense of uncertainty and fear. I'll be honest not all the scares got me, but several of them did, and did very effectively, especially considered I am a horror veteran. I found the pacing and intensity to be very effect and kept me on the edge of my seat. And reacting to the audience reactions, everyone else was more scared than I am.
Not only the horror aspect was good, but the dynamic between the family is also very well done. You truly feel like this was a family that love each other and John Krazinski and Emily Blunt do a wonderful job portraying not only the love between mother and father as well as the true love between parents and their children. The bad and good dynamic of children on their parents is on full display as well as the constant fear of protecting our children. The cinematography was great, it only added to the tense feeling in scenes, I found many of the shots to be unique and well shot. The monsters were bad ass as hell and are definitely scary, not only what they do but what they look like.
I highly recommend it.
