John Krasinski‘s A Quiet Place, starring himself and Emily Blunt (The Girl on the Train), comes out next week on Friday. The highly anticipated horror-thriller has drummed up a lot of interest over the past couple of months, drip feeding us little bits of information, stills and trailers. Ahead of the film’s release date, two new clips have been released, showing what look like climactic moments in the movie.
The film’s Official Synopsis reads:
“If they can’t hear you, they can’t hunt you. A family lives an isolated existence in utter silence, for fear of an unknown threat that follows and attacks at any sound.”
The story follows the family of four as they live a life of silence and attempt to hide from creatures that hunt by sensing sound. Written by Krasinski, Bryan Woods and Scott Beck (Nightlight), the film stars Blunt and Krasinski as the parents of Millicent Simmonds (Wonderstruck) and Noah Jupe (Suburbicon) in what appears to be a post-apocalyptic America.
The two new clips, entitled “Silo” and “Bathtub”, are only a few seconds long each, but boy, are they tense. Each clip has barely any sound and no music, really selling the sense of suspense. Check the clips out below and see if you don’t find yourself noticing every little noise.
Much of the interest in A Quiet Place is generated by its ambitious goal of being largely without sound or traditional dialogue, with characters communicating through American Sign Language for the majority of the film. It’s also been lauded for casting breakout deaf actress Simmonds in a lead role at a time where diversity in the film industry is being increasingly called for. The film’s willingness to break out and be different, both in terms of casting and story, comes as a breath of fresh air for many moviegoers, with this film looking to be one of 2018’s most unconventional horror releases.
A Quiet Place comes out April 6. Check out the new clips below:
