A Quiet Place

Start to the end a entertaining great movie.

A movie that has a simple literal title that is on the mark, and a perfect tagline If They Hear You They Hunt You since it is shown to be true.
The monsters are attracted to noise which is similar to Tremors.

A great Horror Post Apocalypse or Horror Post Apocalyptic movie about a family that has to avoid making noises to avoid the monsters, and having to fight for survival.

The main characters are believable flawed likable characters, great quality monsters and great design the monsters look like something from the great video game series Doom or Lovecraft Horror, decent violent climax, decent action, genuine scares, great drama, a terrific ending, and a great intentional unanswered question.
This is It Comes At Night kind of movie that has monsters.

It's a combination of I am Legend, Signs, and Tremors.This movie has flaws but it doesn't diminish the quality.

 Why is a nail that is upward on the stairs?
Why does the family never use the Basement a safe haven in other scenes including when the kids play Monopoly? It's shown they can talk in this basement so wouldn't have to worry about making sounds.
Why do they not move away from the area if a sound is made if they can?

The family is using electricity but it's never shown what is providing the electricity. If it's a electric generator which makes a lot of noise why does that not attract the monsters? If it isn't then we don't see what is the device that provides electricity for the family.

2 Plot Holes
The kids were sinking in grain, but aren't sinking in the grain with a door on top of them while a sightless monster is attacking them.
It's clearly seen they aren't holding on the door so this inconsistency with no plausible reason is a plot hole.
Evelyn slams her hand on the Shower glass door which doesn't attract the Sightless Monsters which is a plot hole. It's not in the area where noise is being made a River, Behind a Waterfall which is why this is a obvious plot hole.

It isn't shown the sightless monsters killing most humans so the viewers need to fill in the blanks.

Did a vast number of sightless monsters kill most humans? It's implausible that 3 monsters killed most  Earth humans because a high amount of humans including the Military have guns which could kill the monsters by shooting their heads.
'It's  logical that a high amount of sightless monsters killed most humans because that is plausible.

Also were most or all humans that discovered the weakness killed by the sightless monsters?
This would explain why the family didn't know the weakness of the monsters before the climax.

Jason Case says:

Great movie Review The Horror Guru of a great Horror Post Apocalypse or Post Apocalyptic  monsters movie, and you have valid logical reasons for why you had negative expectations before seeing this movie.

edodgeson says:

Just came back from the movie. Man, that was intense! My leg still hurts because of how tense I was for almost the entire movie lol. Thanks for the recommendation, Guru, almost missed it 🙂

pythonkatie K says:

Totally off topic, but are you going to be reviewing Mother? I have a toddler and newborn and found out about the ending so I personally can't bring myself to see it but am curious on your thoughts.

If you already have then I'm sorry, I try to watch all of your videos and have searched and haven't seen anything about it.

Nathan Watts says:

The horror guru won the Channel Awesome hunger games! Congrats! Winner winner chicken dinner! But, on a serious note. You keep making videos, regardless where you post them, I'll keep watching them. Sadly I won't see you in CA cause I live in Germany. Keep up the videos and keep the horror and gore alive!

LycanicPotato says:

Correct me if I am wrong, but I thought it was flour that they were walking on? Maybe even corn flour since there was that silo, and the corn field. It seems odd that there would be that much ground though, so I don't know.

Carter The Brown says:

In my opinion this movie was amazing! Krasinski to me proved himself to be a great dramatic lead and an even better director. Such a great concept for a film. The vid I did on the flic reinforced these beliefs while also having the most insane intro to anything I've ever made. Tell me if you laughed, cried, or ran away in terror after viewing it, if in fact you decide to do so. Anyways keep up the good work man! Awesome and interesting perspective. Keep on keeping on!

Me Me says:

Review spookies

Joe Smith says:

GO SEE IT !!! It's great!

silvernekobaka14 says:

Just saw this movie today. I thought the sound design was brilliant. Also I feel like a big thing it had going for it was that they just let it be what it was. They didn't try to shoehorn some bullshit subplot about where the monsters came from. They just let them be there and do their thing. I feel like introducing an origin for a creature can break a solid monster movie. Leaving them without any context let them retain that mystery that helps make them terrifying.

Have you read Birdbox? It has a really similar vibe except instead of being quiet, everyone has to walk around blindfolded because they go insane if they see the creatures.

Wrightgrlgnebd says:

So glad you and Count Jackula are still reviewing horror movies.

Katy Teacher says:





She didn't give him the batteries. I think he took them

Jami JoAnne Russell says:

Never having had children I wouldn't know but I've always heard the more kids you have the easier and quicker the next one comes out. (Barring complications like a breech birth.) So since we know for sure she already had three and don't know how many she had before the movie's events that could've died to lack of things like medicine/vaccines, clean water, etc or were killed by the monsters, it's quite possible she's bred like a Duggar on fertility pills to the point where she can shoot a baby out in the time it takes the average person to fart.

Ghost Face says:

Please do a vlog for monsterpalooza

Bettina Huntenburg says:

Did I miss something in the movie that explained the alien invasion? Because I’m trying to figure out how beings so sensitive to noise could have intergalactic travel.

Were they brought back by humans from another world?
Is there another alien race using these creatures as hunting dogs?
Were they not actually alien, but subterranean and recently unearthed by mining operations?

I just feel like ‘the monsters invaded, yes, they have space travel… y’know what, just watch the movie’ isn’t a good enough explanation.

Cyndee Ro says:

Tears. I think all the hype surrounding this movie is misleading. Not a horror, not scary. Its a drama. Take out the monsters (such obvious CGI) its a chick flick. I was so excited from all the reviews and couldn't wait to see it. And then I waited for it to be this amazing movie that everyone said it was….and then the credits were rolling. Sighs. Maybe I watched the wrong version or something

Jacob Matthew Crawford says:

The praise this movie is getting make me interested in checking it out. Not making any promises, but if I'm not too busy and my anxiety isn't too bad, I might go see it…

Have a great time at Monsterpalooza dude!

I was sorry to hear about you leaving Channel Awesome. You do whatever you think is best. That whole situation is just a mess. I don't know what the fuck's gonna happen. Like you said, I hope things can work out for both sides. As it was sung in Mel Brooks' The Twelve Chairs (1970)… "Hope for the best… Expect the worst!"

If it means anything; I love your content, you're a very funny, likable, and talented guy, and I'm very happy to be one of your Gorehounds/Patrons. I'll continue to support you as long as I can afford to. Good luck with everything and as usual, I look forward to your next video!

Bilbo Baggins says:

Man you're the man !!
It was pure coincidence that I ended up watching one of your videos and I'm damn glad I subscribed !!

Steve says:

1990 Tremors and 2016 Don't Breathe were two better movies if you like the genre like A Quiet Place.

And they both had a storyline.

Jay Jeckel says:

I'm going to watch it eventually, but I already don't buy the monsters and know I'll spend the entire movie trying to figure out how these monsters took out the entire planet's multiple military forces. Did anyone ever try to nuke these monsters? What are they made of that we can destroy bunkers buried hundreds of feet below solid rock, but we can't blow these invaders up? We have bullets that can pierce stainless-steal-wrapped depleted-uranium tank armor and drones carrying hellfire missiles, but somehow these monsters destroyed civilization? I don't think so.

I'm sure it is a decent enough movie, but, much like the premise of Looper, I'm just not buying it and that will keep me from enjoying any of the good stuff the movie has to offer.

Satria Kurniawann Djaenal says:

Aw, man…I'd really love to meet you guys…too bad I'm halfway across the globe.

Anyway, that was way too bright, Guru.

Malefizia says:

Great review as always ^^ but i have to say that the mother giving birth that fast IS possible, especially after having already birthed three children before that one.
When i had my scond child, my roommate in the hospital had her son in less than five minutes! It was also her second child.
Same goes for my sister in law, also under ten minutes for her second babygirl.
So it IS possible. Just saying 🙂

cgro2767 says:

Solid review, Guru! Saw the movie last night and really enjoyed it. Nice, fresh perspective on the monster genre. I'm glad some of these newer directors (Jordan Peele, John Krasinski, Mike Flanagan, etc.) are breathing some life into the horror genre these past few years. Anyway, enjoyed the video as always!

Sebastian Diaconu says:

Roadtrip vlog?

scream queen shaw says:

I was really scared this was going to be just like it comes at night. However it had an actual Boogeyman in a sort of way where it comes at night did not!

scream queen shaw says:

I love the characters and without using very many words they still kept your attention. Sound was the main character in this movie and I loved how they used it. Too bad they couldn't have figured out the whole sound thing a little sooner! Still a pretty good watch not really horror for me more of a sci-fi thriller
