A Quiet Place

I was really looking forward to this one, and for once in a long time the movie didn't disapoint.  I like a horror, although I steer clear of the Saw variety of movie, this one was an old fashioned premise.  Right from the start, you know what to be scared of - the monsters  will get you if you make noise.  Rather than getting a slow build up, you are dropped right into 3 months after the monsters have taken over.  Emily Blunt and John Krasinski play mother and father trying to protect their three young children on their rural property. 

The movie was evenly paced and kept me feeling tense throughout - which made me happy and I would have to say I enjoyed this horror more than any I can think of in the past decade, hard to fault.  5/5

You are certainly brave. Did you check all the doors and windows twice that night. Looked in your wardrobe and under the bed? Or would that have too scary in case you found something ? 👺 🤡👻

Blood and gore don't equal fright for me, either. They just show a lack of imagination on the part of the movie-makers. This one sounds pretty good.
