See A Quiet Place ‘cold’ and brace your­self for a last­ing, pow­er­ful chill. If you do get to ex­pe­ri­ence this bril­liant apoc­a­lyp­tic thriller with noth­ing more than your guard down, eyes up and ears open (trust me, this last con­di­tion is of ut­most im­por­tance), then you will wit­ness one of the most un­for­get­table and best movies of 2018. The movie is set in a near fu­ture where some kind of cat­a­strophic event has all but emp­tied our planet. Those few who re­main alive do so by strictly ob­serv­ing a vow of com­plete si­lence. The slight­est noise is a cer­tain death sen­tence. A close-knit fam­ily of sur­vivors is about to face an ab­so­lute day of reck­on­ing in a world where a sin­gle sound can seal sev­eral fates: the mother (Emily Blunt) has fallen preg­nant, and will soon be giv­ing birth. What fol­lows is nerve-shred­ding, spell­bind­ing and com­pellingly im­pos­si­ble to turn away from. Co-star­ring (and im­pres­sively di­rected by) John Krasin­ski.
