Synopsis

Following the arrival of destructive blind creatures who hunt using only sound, a farm family of four devise a number of methods to live without making any noise. 

Lee Abbott (John Krasinski, who also directs) and his wife Evelyn (Emily Blunt) have a deaf teenage daughter, Regan (played by deaf actress Millicent Simmonds), so they already know American sign language and use it, and a lighting system, to communicate in their silent world. 

Lee tries to set up a way to communicate with the outside world to find out if there is anyone who can help them out there, or who knows about these creatures so they can figure out how to deal with them and possibly find their weakness. He also tries to make better hearing aids for Regan, who can't hear a thing, despite his earlier efforts. 

When Lee takes his son Marcus (Noah Jupe) to learn how to fish so he can help take care of the family in case anything happens to Lee, the boy is terrified to go, fearing that the creatures will find them.

Evelyn, who has discovered she's pregnant for a third time, is happy about the impending birth, but realizes it presents problems, because the family has to devise a way to keep the creatures from discovering their home, even after the baby is born.

  • 5 stars "Nice to have a horror actually deliver. Meaning, you get the rush you paid for. The premise was "sound", pun fully intended and you'll understand the pun once you see the show! Great pretense for the plot and it works."
  • 3 stars "The element of forced silence becomes somewhat disturbing (and effective) as the movies progresses. As with any story based on sci-fi, there are a few spots where credibility disappears. Nevertheless, the acting carries the theme well. There's plenty to keep the viewer on the edge of the seat."
  • 5 stars "Very good concept, much different than all other thriller and/or alien movies. Suspense from the beginning to the end with a sad ending however, acting was well done, plot and setting was nicely put together. A mix of the movie "signs" and "war of the world" which I don't think many viewers noticed. Definitely recommend watching on spare time to understand what is really going on. 5* rating, well done and looking forward to a sequel."
