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.
John Krasinski almost turned down this film just as he was about to start work on the series Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan (2018). When asked by the producers if he'd be interested in appearing in a horror film, John replied that he did not do horror. But when he was presented with the premise about a 'family that can't make any noise and you have to figure out why,' he jumped on board straight away.
Stop. You've got to stop.
The scene in the grain bin when the kids are sinking into the corn like quicksand is inaccurate. While that is a danger (usually fatal), the only way a person sinks like that is when the grain is being removed from the bottom of the bin. That's when a person is drawn down and suffocated. If the grain is stationary, there is no danger of sinking like that.
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.
