The opening sequence was the last to be shot, as it required John Krasinski to shave most of his beard. See more »
While pregnant, Evelyn uses a stethoscope to listen to the baby's heart in the womb. This may be difficult with a regular stethoscope but not impossible. There is a specialized type of stethoscope called a fetoscope which is simply a different shaped stethoscope but functions similarly. A doppler is more commonly used in today's hospitals to hear the fetus' heartbeat. However, with effort, a regular stethoscope can hear a fetal heartbeat. See more »

The main title appears after about nine minutes, created to look as though it is made from sand, and is the only on-screen credit aside from the opening production logos. See more »
A Quiet Place was critically acclaimed and for some reason that tends to mean I won't like it. No idea why I just don't tend to follow the unwashed masses when it comes to movies, I am however mistaken sometimes.
Starring real life married couple Emily Blunt and John Krasinski, also directed by the latter this highly original horror got my attention from the get go and held it throughout.
It tells the story of a post apocalyptic world that has been torn apart by mysterious creatures that find their prey exclusively through sound. It follows one family as they try to survive in absolute silence.
The fact there is such little dialogue or really any form of audio is how A Quiet Place finds its identity. I'm not saying it hasn't been done before but it hasn't on quite this scale and it works considerably better than you'd imagine.
The cast are great, the cinematography is fantastic and the story is really well put together. To add to this I think A Quiet Place is genuinely one of the most tension filled movies I've ever seen, I squinted, I cringed, I clenched my fist, on sat on the edge of my seat multiple times throughout.
A Quiet Place deserves the critical acclaim, though it's not perfect it is however an absolute triumph and a real spectacle. Certainly one of those "Movies to see before you die" types.
If you haven't seen it yet, do something about that.
So incredibly tense in places
Just a couple of poorly thought out moments
Things I Learnt From This Movie:
Kids are a liability
Kids shouldn't be trusted with anything ever
