PG-13 | | Drama, Horror, Sci-Fi
In a post-apocalyptic world, a family is forced to live in silence while hiding from monsters with ultra-sensitive hearing.
Bryan Woods and Scott Beck's original screenplay contained only one line of voiced dialogue.
It's a boy.
Evelyn: It's a boy.
One of the newspaper headlines on a table is dated in mid-October 2018. Later in the film, on Day 473, the mother is writing on an October calendar as she keeps track of her pregnancy vitals. Assuming Day Zero was near mid-October 2018, then Day 473 should have been in late January or early February 2020. However, that assumption is clearly wrong as the little boy was killed in 2020 (as per the cross where it happened) which was Day 89, so Day Zero was obviously not in 2018. The days may actually refer to the number of days the family has been fending for themselves rather than when the aliens first arrived.
The main title appears after about nine minutes, created to look as though it is made from sand, and is the only on-screen credit aside from the opening production logos.
