“A Quiet Place” centers around a family of four that has to keep dead-silent in a dystopian world where they are hunted by creatures that track down sounds.

Emily Blunt co-stars in the film. It currently stands at a 100% “Fresh” rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

Most critics have praised the movie’s performances and Krasinski’s execution of its conceit and scares.

Here’s what critics have said about “A Quiet Place,” which opens April 6 nationwide:


“When ‘A Quiet Place’ has one finger on the panic button and the other on mute, it’s a nervy, terrifying thrill.”

“Directed with first-rate visual flair by John Krasinski (who knew?), this riveting near-silent thriller exudes the despair of a broken world with the concision of a Cormac McCarthy novel folded into a simplistic B-movie premise.”

“Even moviegoers who don’t accept the metaphor are going to have the pants scared off them.”

“A tight thrill ride-the kind of movie that quickens the heart rate and plays with the expectations of the audience, while never treating them like idiots. In other words, it’s a really good horror movie.”

“This may be a sci-fi fantasy about giant man-eating bugs, but it’s grounded in human facts and folly. Little here is safe. Nothing is predictable.”

Stephen Whittey, New York Daily News


“Though it’s Krasinski’s third time in the director’s chair, it’s his first home run thanks, in no small part, to the film’s emphasis on family and Krasinski’s choice of leading lady-his wife and mother of his two children, Emily Blunt.”

“Gripping, earnest, and nail-bitingly tense, John Krasinski’s first foray into genre filmmaking is a master-class instant classic that every horror fan needs to see.”
