Lesson 108: A Quiet Place – ASMR A Plenty

Apr 11, 2018 | Chad Riley, Eddie Villanueva, Movies, Podcasts, The Filmlosophers

The Filmlosophers, Eddie Villanueva, Chad Riley and Spencer Williams, brush up on their sign language skills with this week’s review of A Quiet Place (2018). The film marks actor John Krasinski’s third time in the director’s chair and provides a captivating glimpse into the challenges of life in a world where humans have become prey to creatures from the great beyond that use sound to hunt for their victims. Also starring Krasinski’s wife, Emily Blunt, and featuring VFX from Industrial Light & Magic, you just might want to hold your breath during this family-centric survival tale.

Originally conceived as a potential component of the now-anthological Cloverfield universe franchise spawned by JJ Abrams, A Quiet Place instead stands alone on its own merits. Judging by initial audience reactions, which have been largely positive, this decision may be to its benefit even if it prevents the film from making more money during its theatrical run.
