“If they can’t hear you, they can’t hunt you.”
So, John Krasinski and Emily Blunt are one of those insanely cute Hollywood couples that still gives me hope.

So you can imagine my excitement when the trailer for A Quiet Place dropped today, which stars the married couple AS a married couple.

Now, this movie has a GENUINELY interesting premise, at least from the creepy-as-all-heck teaser.
A family, living in what appears to be total isolation, must stay completely silent at all times, or else be attacked by something NOT GOOD.
They speak in sign language, play board games with soft knit pieces, and even have the EXACT steps they can move on mapped out everywhere they go.
While the imagery in the trailer is striking, it’s the use of sound design (or should I say “absence of”) that really makes this trailer stand out, because horror shouldn’t be all about loud noises all the time, TBH.
The film was also directed by Krasinski.
And, of course, because Blunt is an insanely talented actor, she completely steals the trailer with her perfect “horrified mom expressions.”
What is hunting this poor family? Why must they stay completely quiet all the time? WHY IS IT THAT PEOPLE IN HORROR FILMS NEVER JUST MOVE OUT???
Though, I’m sure there’s a reason given in the final film.
I guess we’ll have to wait for answers until the film hits theaters on April 6, 2018!
