“A Quiet Place”, directed by John Krasinski

Movie, 2018

Vaguely prescient alien film in which family threatening beasts from the cosmos track sounds and use them to hone in and prey on human beings. Some great ideas and great atmospheric build-up, with some wonderfully shot locations. The film is a little overdone here and there with a little too much ‘Alien’ influence and some plot holes I’d usually forgive; but seem a little glaring given the plot-driven nature of the film. Striking enough, for sure, to make this strong viewing, even if some of the characters and tropes let it down a little.
