A young boy is attacked and killed, offscreen by a monster; he's quickly snatched away in the blink of an eye.

But Regan blames herself for an earlier family tragedy, and son Marcus Noah Jupe is deathly afraid to go out and risk facing the monsters. Things get more difficult when the pregnant Evelyn must deliver her baby in silence.

A Quiet Place is, in many ways, like an extended classic horror movie sequence, such as famous ones in The Birds or Aliens , wherein the heroes must try not to disturb packs of resting monsters. The real beauty is the movie's primal quality, based on the most basic elements of life, such as survival and protection of the species. No explanation is given for the monsters' existence; they, like us, are just here. Images of water, sand, bare feet, crops, and plant life serve to underline the theme of life itself.

A Quiet Place movie review & film summary () | Roger Ebert
So it should look fluent. Simmonds said that she suggested for the daughter to rebel rather than cower during a sign-language fight with her father. She also said that the script originally had the father sign "I love you" to his daughter at the end of the film, but she suggested for him to follow with "I've always loved you" to make up for their arguing earlier in the film.
Producers Andrew Form and Bradley Fuller said that they initially planned not to provide on-screen subtitles for sign-language dialogue while providing only "context clues," but they realized that subtitles were necessary for the scene in which the deaf daughter and her hearing father argue about the modified hearing aid.
They subsequently added subtitles for all sign-language dialogue in the film. The director wanted the creatures to look like they had evolved to no longer need eyes, and to be "somewhat humanoid" in nature. Farrar said the initial creature design showed them with rhinoceros-like horns out of their faces, later redesigned.

Vanity Fair reported, "The team immediately set about pulling references; prehistoric fish, black snakes, and bats, particularly their movement patterns. Inspiration was also drawn from bog people : cadavers that have been mummified in peat, turning the skin black and giving it a sagging, leathery look. A Quiet Place had , views on YouTube , , views on Facebook , and 2, social conversations. The Tracking Board reported on March 14 , "The stellar reviews out of SXSW, coupled with the fact that there isn't anything like it in the marketplace, should help it stand out among its bigger-budget competition.
BoxOffice wrote, "The horror genre has also shown a knack for over-performing against expectations at the box office in recent years, setting this release up for potential success. A Quiet Place was first commercially released in theaters in the first week of April in multiple territories, including North America. A Quiet Place received acclaim from critics, with many praising the atmosphere, sound design, Krasinski's direction and the performances. The website's critical consensus reads, " 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.
Writing for Rolling Stone , Peter Travers gave the film 3. This new horror classic will fry your nerves to a frazzle. Variety ' s Owen Gleiberman said, " A Quiet Place is a tautly original genre-bending exercise, technically sleek and accomplished, with some vivid, scary moments, though it's a little too in love with the stoned logic of its own premise.
Other bits are more shameless I don't know if I'd call A Quiet Place enjoyable; it's more grueling than cathartic. Nick Allen of RogerEbert. By no accident, he's tackled the horror genre while relying on the unique strength that can be seen throughout his acting work, and one that has made him relatable as an everyman across TV and film—expressive silence. Speaking of the political and social commentary the film encouraged, Krasinski said, "The best compliment you can get on any movie is that it starts a conversation.
The fact that people are leaving and talking about anything is really fun—but certainly about deep stuff like that, is awesome. In addition to considering his film a metaphor for parenthood, he compared the premise to US politics in , "I think in our political situation, that's what's going on now: You can close your eyes and stick your head in the sand, or you can try to participate in whatever's going on. Matthew Monagle of Film School Rejects said A Quiet Place seemed to be "the early frontrunner for the sparsely intellectual horror movie of the year", like previous films The Babadook and The Witch Monagle said Krasinski, who had directed two previous films, was "making an unusual pivot into a genre typically reserved for newcomers", and considered it to be part of a movement toward horror films layered "in storytelling, [with] character beats not typically found in a horror movie".
Roman Catholic Bishop Robert Barron was surprised by what he saw as strikingly religious themes in the film. He likened the family's primitive, agrarian life of silence to monasticism, and commends their self-giving love. Barron suggested pro-life themes, especially in the choices of the parents, as Mrs. Abbott risks everything to give birth to a child, and her husband lays down his own life so that the children can live: what Barron sees as the ultimate expression of parental love. Krasinski, who had recently become a father, said in a conference interview "I was already in a state of terror about whether or not I was a good enough father," and added that the meaning of parenthood had been elevated for him by imagining being a father in a nightmare world, struggling to simply keep his children alive.
Krasinski himself has told CBS News "The scares were secondary to how powerful this could be as an allegory or metaphor for parenthood. For me, this is all about parenthood. Richard Brody , writing for The New Yorker , criticized A Quiet Place for what he perceived to be the inclusion of conservative and pro-gun themes in the film. He described it as "the antithesis of "Get Out"" and "both apparently unconscious and conspicuously regressive" and opined that it "[brings] to the fore the idealistic elements of gun culture while dramatizing the tragic implications that inevitably shadow that idealism.
