It looks like something I might go to see if it isn't too scary. I hate being startled.

It wasn't that scary to me, but I like horror movies. I thought it was decent. Entertaining enough, but not the best thing I've ever seen.

Just read the whole story line on wikipedia. I give it a solid "nah".

This movie could have been SO much better had they started with normal life and then having these creatures show up one day and start killing people off, destroying society, cities, armies, etc, but that would require a much larger budget too.

I saw it yesterday. It was a pretty original plot, and it was certainly more intriguing than the slasher films that have been coming out the past couple of years.

It didn’t completely wow me. I think I was expecting too much out of A Quiet Place. The ending made up for it.

I thought the same thing! In the twenty-two or so years since the latest Stranger Things season, could there have been an unrepairable tear between our dimension and the upside down.

No. Thatís been apocalyptic movies have been done before. They wanted to focus more on character development.

I donít really like The Walking Dead, but it could have been so much worse if they showed the beginning of the spread of zombies and all of the chaos. Itís been done before.

I saw it not long ago and I thought it was one of the best movies I've seen so far this year, well acted by everyone in the cast.

Yes there are the obvious jump scares but besides that there are genuine scary scenes from the tension of the moment. The movie kept the tension and intensity throughout the movie (the very ending shot was a bit corny I thought).

There was a very emotional moment towards the end of the movie, and I thought the director did a great job in getting to that moment. He didn't take the easy way out with a critical plot device involving the deaf girl, which led to that moment. One thing I also noted was that there was no swearing in this movie at all. Proof that you do not need single 'F' bomb in your movie to make it 'real' or involving. This movie was made for peanuts budget wise and has been kicking butt at the box office.

I read that a sequel was greenlighted.

Stressful and intense movie but so well written. The cast did so amazing, definitely recommend this. I like how it just seemed a bit different and refreshing.

I know that for religious reasons, some people won't go see horror movies because often times they deal with the subject of spells, the occult, or witchcraft, etc. However, this movie doesn't. And as a matter of fact, it's more like a science fiction movie because the monsters in the movies seem more like mutated creatures. Actually kind of like bats when you come to think of it because they have those long arms and that crazy sensitive audio thing going on with them.

Also, other than having a unique and terrific premise and a really great story, I thinking that perhaps because it is more of a science fiction movie(and as we know, fantasy and science fiction movies are generally bigger money makers), that perhaps that is the reason why it is doing so well at the box office for a horror movie.

But if you haven't seen this one yet, I would highly recommend that you go and see this movie on the big screen in the theaters. Also, I hope that they make a sequel to this movie.

I was confused by the ending. If you were so kind as to Spoiler explain it to me I'd be grateful.



(Although I have to say this isn't a television show where we all are expected to wait with comments
until it has shown on the west coast....)
