A Quiet Place Is Out On DVD



We went to see A Quiet Place at the cinema, because we both love The Office, and Jim from The Office both starred in and wrote this movie. D refuses to watch trailers, so didn't really know what to expect, whereas I'd watched all of the teasers plus the official trailer, and prepared myself to be terrified. Terrified, I was not. But we were both very much blown away.

A post apocalyptic love story with a focus on family life, only with monsters and the constant threat of death and that, A Quiet Place is a movie carried out in almost complete silence, and is one of the most touching things I've seen in such a long time. I won't go into the story because I don't want to ruin anything, but let's just say we were both speechless by the end, recommended it to everyone we know, for months afterwards found ourselves saying things like 'you know what was a great movie?' and 'remember that bit when...' and, also, I cried at the end. Of a horror story. Because it was just that moving. If that doesn't tell you that this is a cut above the genre, I don't know what will.

If you haven't seen this movie, please do yourself a favour and do so. You won't regret it.

P.S. pretty sure you can also rent it on Amazon. Sunday night sorted :)
