In a post-apocalyptic world, a family is forced to live in silence while hiding from monsters with ultra-sensitive hearing.
It was initially intended to leave the American Sign Language un-subtitled, believing the audience would understand the subtext of what was going on. Notably, the first trailer does not subtitle the signing. However, while editing the sequence where Regan argues with her father regarding her hearing aids, it was decided by the filmmakers that the sequence would have to be subtitled. Subsequently all use of ASL throughout the movie was subtitled.
He'll come for us.
Regan Abbott: He'll come for *you*.
Lee takes his son to the waterfall to note that loud natural sounds can mask their noises, with both yelling to demonstrate. If Evelyn was so far along in her pregnancy he should have set up some kind of camp there so that any screams from the childbirth could be masked. However, it's not very practical - or safe - for the family to be living outdoors day and night in this situation.
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.
