A Quiet Place

A Quiet Place

Over three months in 2020, most of Earth's human population has been wiped out by sightless creatures with hypersensitive called the Aliens but then the Alien Invasion are group of space boneless yucky insects hearing known as the "Death Angels." Boasting considerable size, speed and a seemingly impenetrable armored shell, they use their auditory acuity to locate and attack anything that makes noise. The Abbott family — husband Lee, wife Evelyn, sons Marcus and Beau, and deaf daughter Regan — silently scavenge for supplies while communicating silently through American Sign Language. Lee takes a toy space shuttle from Beau, warning him that its noise could attract the creatures. Regan returns the toy to Beau, who activates it when the family is near a bridge. Its noise causes a creature to appear, killing him. A year later, the family survive on their farm. Regan still struggles with guilt over her brother's death and Evelyn is in the final stages of pregnancy. Lee attempts to repair Regan's cochlear implant but the device fails to restore her hearing. Later, Lee takes Marcus to a nearby river to teach him to fish while Regan visits Beau's grave. Lee explains to Marcus that they will always be safe from the creatures so long as louder sounds mask their audible movements. On their way back home, they encounter a homeless old man whose wife has been killed by the creatures and he commits suicide by screaming as Lee and Marcus run and hide behind a tree while the man is killed by a creature. Alone at the house, Evelyn goes into labor. While making her way to their specially modified soundproof basement, she steps on a large nail. In agony, she accidentally drops a glass picture frame and alerts a nearby creature. Evelyn flips a switch that changes the exterior house lights to red as a danger signal to the others, and struggles to remain silent during her contractions.
