4/18/2018 by Peter RainerAt a brisk 90 minutes, it's one of the most inventive and beautifully crafted and acted horror movies I've seen in a very long time, and I think the main reason for its power is the family crisis at its core.

4/11/2018 by Josephine LivingstoneThis is a movie about the sound of fear, but it gives us a great deal more to listen to.
4/9/2018 by Sam AdamsBut there are moments when the movie takes us firmly by the hand and escorts us down a darkened path, and they lead to one of the most profound of communal pleasures: the sound of a movie audience screaming as one.
4/8/2018 by James BerardinelliA Quiet Place is a superb exercise in understated terror that puts to shame "horror" films that rely on jump scares and cheap theatrics.
4/7/2018 by David SimsA Quiet Place is an undoubtedly taxing affair for the nerves; fortunately, it's also a deeply affecting one.
4/6/2018 by Anthony LaneSimmonds, who is herself deaf, & who starred in Wonderstruck, last year, makes a greater impact still as the indomitable Regan, with her secretive smile. Her hearing aid is vital to the plot, and, indeed, the whole saga is shaped around its sound design.

4/6/2018 by Johanna SchnellerYou're so tense you're almost nauseous, but it's fun - that's the place this smart new thriller will put you in.
4/6/2018 by Adam Graham"A Quiet Place" is a bold experiment in fear with a triumphant payoff. It will chill you to the bone, and the quieter it gets, the more noise it makes.
4/6/2018 by Ian FreerLike Aliens retooled as a militant librarian's fantasy, John Krasinski's relentless shocker thrives on a nifty premise.
4/5/2018 by Richard RoeperThis is the kind of film that delivers on about 75 percent of its promise and has you looking forward to the time when the director hits something all the way out of the park.
Wall Street Journal
4/5/2018 by Joe MorgensternIt may not make the masterpiece cut, but this taut horror thriller is enormously entertaining, because it's organized around a terrific idea-the necessity of absolute silence.
4/5/2018 by Scott TobiasKrasinski lands on a loud-quiet-loud formula akin to '90s alternative rock: When the chorus kicks in, the jump-scares really pop.
4/5/2018 by Peter HowellIt makes you want to believe in it, and that's no small achievement. It will also make you and your fellow moviegoers shut right up, which is even more impressive.

4/5/2018 by Justin ChangI can't recall the last time I found myself caring as intently for the characters in a horror picture as I did for the family in "A Quiet Place"...
New York Post
4/5/2018 by Johnny Oleksinski"A Quiet Place" is a jalapeño popper of a movie - fast, filling and punchy - and a likable throwback to the films of M. Night Shyamalan. The good ones, anyway.
4/5/2018 by Bill GoodykoontzKrasinski's film is also as much or more about a family in crisis, making it a powerful ride that never forgets its B-movie roots (that's a good thing).
4/5/2018 by Ann HornadayA creeping, increasingly queasy sense of dread pervades "A Quiet Place," John Krasinski's nervy thriller that marks a notable addition to the recent spate of smart, timely genre pictures.
4/5/2018 by Michael PhillipsWorking from a script he wrote with Bryan Woods and Scott Beck, director Krasinski exhibits a sure sense of what will hold the audience, moment to moment.
4/5/2018 by Stephanie ZacharekKrasinski has made one of the most poetic horror movies of recent years. Its sound design alone is glorious, locating the infinite gradations in that thing we so casually call silence.
