A Quiet Place; A Mini Film Review

I saw the trailer for A Quiet Place about a month ago, and I got so excited I made Matt and my brother watch and analyse the trailer with me.
The first thing to say about A Quiet Place is that, as with a good portion modern horrors, it is more of a thriller than a horror. Yes there are the jump scares, and monsters, and moments of horror but the whole storyline fits more closely within the thriller genre.
It doesn’t lose anything for this, but beyond the jump scares you shouldn’t come away too scared.
The film, at the hour and a half run time, could easily have been trimmed down to forty minutes or so.
That said, it’s worth a watch. It’s a fairly original premise, and well acted by the small cast. If you’re a fan of The Walking Dead, the same post dystopian future and band of survivors story line carries over into this film.
I probably wouldn’t rewatch this, but at the same time I wouldn’t discourage anyone from watching this for the first time.
