Film synopsis

In a post-apocalyptic world, a family is forced to live in silence while hiding from monsters with ultra-sensitive hearing. Two parents do what it takes to keep their children safe in a world full of creatures hunting every sound they can hear.

THE GOOD

This film is incredible and will have you gripped from start to finish. Like the very horror films before it, this does away with blood and guts and the typical age old camera angles where you know something is going to happen. No, this bad boy relies on something much worse – the audience’s own imagination.

Not only is it thrilling and intense but it’s full of heartfelt, family moments. To be honest, if I was in this world with my family (I have four sons) we would either be wiped out by these creatures within minutes due to their endless noise (and farting) or the creatures would just keep well clear from these ferrel children of mine.

THE Bad

Getting pregnant – what a damn stupid thing when you are in the situation of this film.

OUR SCORE : 9/10

This film is a must see, and if it was’t for the stupid pregnancy, this would easily be a 10… just like Emily Blunt!

What do the others say?

Don’t just take my word for it, have a look to see what the big players like Rotten Tomatoes (RT), IMBD and Meteoritic are saying. And here’s a fascinating feature on how they created the unique sounds of the creatures.
