By now you’ve probably heard the chorus of people singing the praises about director/co-writer/star John Krasinski’s A Quiet Place. So it shouldn’t come as much of a surprise when I tell you it’s as awesome as the buzz says. Krasinski has crafted one of the best horror films I’ve seen in a long time.
Unlike some movies that have a great creature with a bad story, or characters that you care about in a senseless situation, Krasinski has set up a world where you believe what the film is selling and you really care about the characters on screen. It also helps that ILM designed a kick-ass, original monster that will have you on the edge of your seat whenever it creeps out from the shadows.
Look, I could go on and on telling you how great this movie is, but all you need to know is if you want to have a great time at the movies and see something awesome, check out A Quiet Place this weekend. You’ll be happy you did. For more on the film watch the trailer here. A Quiet Place also stars Emily Blunt, Noah Jupe and Millicent Simmonds.
Last week I got to sit down with Noah Jupe and Millicent Simmonds for an exclusive video interview. They talked about what surprised them about working with John Krasinski and Emily Blunt, what scene they were nervous to shoot before filming began, memorable moments from filming, and how the creature changed during the making of the film. In addition, I asked them some fun questions like what’s the scariest film they’ve seen, the last TV show they binged, their favorite actor, and which video game console they prefer.
