    Watched this last night, and loved it. Very tense in places.

    FX has picked up the broadcast rights to A Quiet Place.

    Watched it a few weeks ago and it was good. Maybe overhyped some but definitely a good movie.

    I wonder if Emily Blunt is coming back for the sequel. I haven't seen anything about that in months.

    Every time I see the title of this thread, I get that stupid pop song stuck in my head with slightly altered lyrics.

    WE FOUND LOVE IN A QUIIIIIIET PLAAAAAACE

    Kill me.

    With Krasinski still involved, you would imagine so.

    Finally watched this the other day. I have a couple of minor issues with it:
    When the alien seemed to react defensive to the noise from the girl's hearing aid device that first time in the corn field, I just waited the rest of the movie for them to use that against the aliens. Also, that final shot of Blunt just before the end felt very strange to me. Like a totally different change of tone that didn't fit IMHO
    Other than that I highly enjoyed it. Great direction by Krasinski and Blunt shows once again what a solid actress she is. The girl playing the daughter was really good as well.

    Blunt needs to come back, even if it's just for a couple of scenes. We need closure on her character's story.

    Yeah for me Blunt is essential for this sequel, she needs to appear at some point just to show the closure to the first movie. Really hope Krasinski can come back to direct.

    Quick question: what the HELL was up with the scene with the old man? Was he trying to get himself killed (he looked distraught, so I assume the dead body was his wife or something), trying to get Krasinski's character killed or was he just crazy? It made no sense!

    His wife was dead and he didn’t want to live anymore. I don’t see what was so confusing.

    So Part II implies it's a continuation of Blunt's story instead of focusing on new characters. Shame, I think it would have been better going with a new group.

    I’m pleasantly surprised Blunt and Krasinski are returning. I was prepared for neither one coming back after Krasinski’s vague statements in the interview both did for THR.

    I loved the first one but really don't need a sequel at all.

    Murphy is great in everything so he is a good addition

    Agreed, he is an excellent addition to the cast. I would not be surprised if he's coming onboard for a villain-type role, but regardless, he's great.

    I think the comparisons to Alien are fair, as Quiet Place came close to replicating the horror and dread elements of Alien, but ultimately not reaching to that level.

    From my perspective the creature design is fantastic and unconventional, very other-worldly.

    Murphy is awesome in everything. I’m guessing he’s either a bad guy or a guy who appears to be bad. And glad Blunt and Krasinski are coming back. If they weren’t, this would probably feel like just another cash grab sequel rather than a good continuation of the story.
