A Quiet Place

Silence is golden, as A Quiet Place proves.

You’ve heard the expression “children should be seen and not heard”. But what if everyone had to follow these rules, lest they die in a bloody and horrific way? Such is the premise of A Quiet Place, the new horror thriller that will be terrifying UK audiences this May. Speaking of which, here’s the trailer:

On paper, it has all the ingredients of a modern horror. Creepy house? Check. Unspecified, world-ending threat? Check. Kids doing exactly what they’re not supposed to at exactly the wrong moment? Double check. The world of A Quiet Place is a world in ruins, where as-yet-unidentified monsters murderkill anything that makes a sound. Helps explain why critics have called it “nightmare-fueled“, “a timebomb” filled with “sheer, visceral terror“.

The film stars real-life couple Emily Blunt and John Krasinski (who also takes over directing duties), along with young co-stars Millicent Simmonds and Noah Jupe, all endeavouring not to make a single sound. In a film filled with long periods of silence, audiences have been reportedly terrified by the slightest noise. A Quiet Place hits UK cinemas on 5th April 2018, with the USA getting it the day after. I think we can all agree that, should this premise ever become reality, London is well and truly fucked.

Are you scared enough yet? If not, try the trailer for Hereditary, described by one reviewer as “pure emotional terrorism”. Sounds like a hoot!

Although Alex spent most of his life in Somerset and Durham, London is (almost) in his name, so he relocated to the capital and fell in love with it. Now going by the moniker 'Secret Landon', you'll find him eating all of London's street food, lost in a bookshop, or shouting at his beloved ice hockey team, the Minnesota Wild.
