A Quiet Place
Mondo 4K Steelbook Edition review by Bobby Blakey
I always love when actors known for a specific genre step out and into something completely different. Much like Jordan Peele, John Krasinski was the last person you expected to star in a horror flick let alone write and direct it. That’s all changed with his 2018 film A Quite Place and with the sequel on the way what better time to revisit it than now.
A Quiet Place follows a family must navigate their lives in silence to avoid mysterious creatures that hunt by sound. Knowing that even the slightest whisper or footstep can bring death, Evelyn and Lee Abbott are determined to find a way to protect their children at all costs while they desperately search for a way to fight back.
This film works on so many levels, but first and foremost the tension and performances. This is essentially a silent film on some level forcing the audience to fully invest to really understand what is happening. When I saw it originally I had no idea what I was in for and it has just gotten better with each viewing. Krasinksi crafted a brilliant creature feature that stood out as original in its execution and overall tone.
I am not going to rehash the entire review of this film again as you can check out our previous review at the link below, but I will say that this latest 4K release looks and sounds, what little sound is there, awesome. I love this movie and this new Mondo cover art perfectly captures the essence of the film. Re-watching this not only reminded me how great it is and holds up, but even more excited to see the next chapter hitting theaters soon.
This release not only features the film, but bonus content including featurettes that take you behind bringing the terrifying silence to the big screen. Grab your copy of the Mondo Steelbook Edition of A Quiet Place 4K Ultra when it hits stores on March 10, 2020 from Paramount Home Entertainment.
