October marks the beginning of Halloween, a holiday I like to celebrate all fall by watching some good old fashioned horror movies. Personally, it takes a lot to scare me, so my normal after school special could make others sleep with their lights on that night.
To reach out to those who like a spooky thrill ,but don’t want to have nightmares, there is one film that was so phenomenal I saw it in theaters twice. ‘A Quiet Place’ is directed by and stars John Krasinski, accompanied by his wife Emily Blunt, along with two upincoming actors Millicent Simmonds and Noah Jupe.
This film follows a family after their world is invaded by blind alien-like creatures, but this isn’t your average horror movie. Silence is constantly sounding throughout eighty percent of the movie, so if you are planning on bringing in candy I suggest opening the bags during the trailers.
There is danger around every corner and a persistent queasiness I feel whenever I can’t predict what is about to happen. This doesn’t follow your normal scary movie formula. It is new and refreshing, and if you are looking to get spooked this Halloween then ‘A Quiet Place’ is the movie to see.
