A QUIET PLACE

Starring:

John Krasinski – Lee Abbott

Emily Blunt- Evelyn Abbott

Noah Jupe- Marcus Abbott

Millicent Simmonds- Regan Abbott

IF THEY CAN HEAR YOU…. THEY CAN HUNT YOU!

John Krasinski directs and stars in his new “edge of your seat” thriller, “A Quiet Place” that co-stars Emily Blunt as parents that must raise their family in total silence. The world they live in has been invaded by mantis like aliens that are blind but have superior hearing and speed.

Day 96

The Abbott family is on a supply run into town. The streets are deserted not even a stray dog in sight. The all comb through the general store grabbing meds for Marcus, Lee grabs repair parts for the radio and some hearing aids to adapt for Regan, who is deaf. Lee signs to his youngest Beau (Cade Woodward) that the toy space shuttle he has is too loud to bring home, only to have Regan give it back to him as they head out. The entire family is on foot, barefoot as they walk home. The live-in silence to avoid being hunted by the invading aliens.

The creatures are bling, but have enhanced hearing and super speed, so if you speak, from a cup or in the Abbotts case have a child that turns on a toy… the creatures descend upon him killing him instantly. The creatures appear to have an armor like shell and razor-sharp pinchers. Lee Abbott spends his evenings sending out Morse code messages to see if there is anyone else out there. The Abbott family also lights a signal fire each night to signal they are still alive and it is answered by 5 others in the area that are able to be quiet and not gain the creatures attention. The Abbotts also have a elaborate light system to alert anyone to danger or if it is safe to come to the house.
