Loved it, have seen this several times, this keeps you on the edge of your seat off and on and I loved the entire movie overall.

Apparently, John Krasinski has never heard of socks.

Also, the whole drowning in a grain silo, that old chestnut? The Dressmaker did it better.

A good-looking movie with nicely rendered CGI aliens and an incredibly stupid premise, i.e. that humanity has been virtually wiped out by giant spider-like creatures from Parts Unknown that (a) can easily be killed with firearms (e.g. a shotgun), (b) are blind, (c) possess no sense of smell, and (d) are instinctively drawn to sounds like moths to a flame. They obviously could easily be completely eradicated by the equivalent of a sound-driven bug light. The "alien weak spot" (a well-worn trope in alien invasion flicks since "War of the Worlds") is that high-frequency sounds disable them... obviously stolen from "Mars Attacks", which did it better and funnier. Definitely two-thumbs down for anyone who enjoys good, intelligent science fiction.

The only thing horrifying about this movie is the number of plot holes it contains. I found the characters' actions completely lacking in plausibility, and the "rules" of the unnamed entities that terrorized them followed no scientific or internal logic.

I have a lot of thoughts about this movie, but surely I can say that this is one of my favorite movie absolutely amazing. In fact that this movie directed by John Krasinski one of the main character in this movie with his wife Emily Blunt who also starred in the film, they definitely had great chemistry on screen together so it is kinda interesting because despite being a horror movie, this film also is very wholesome and has a lot of heart. You can tell that this film is a very personal for them where the family bind is the core of the story that this two parents do whatever it takes just to survive with their children. Overall the movie is well made it has lots of suspense throughout the movie and the characters are amazing. 5/5 Stars. @moviefanatic of the Hamilton Public Library Teen Review Board

I read somewhere that Paul Thomas Anderson hosted a screening for this. So I was intrigued. (Also, who doesn't like Emily Blunt and John Krasinksi?) Sadly, this is just another ALIEN ripoff, with the silence thing the one interesting tweak.

Some scary/suspenseful parts but really not that good. No back story about the creatures and how it started. Just a weird film. The actors themselves were good but the story left a lot to be desired.

Violence: One character steps on a protruding nail, expresses pain, and pulls her foot off of it with lots of blood. Some uses of guns and there are images of blood and injuries. There's a particularly intense scene when a child is drowning in a grain silo.

The movie begins on Day 89 after some humanity decimating event. A family is prowling a store and collecting items, particularly medicine for a sick child. It is obvious they are trying to be very quiet. The youngest child is trying to find a toy and he chooses a little space shuttle. The rest of the family does not want him to bring the space shuttle because it makes noise and is "too loud." As the family leaves the store you notice they are all barefoot and they slowly make their way home. The family communicates in sign language and indeed the oldest child is deaf. It is very clear that they are terrified and surviving the only way they can.

This movie is when 3 blind aliens come to earth and everyone must be quiet or else the aliens will kill them.
