This movie is as terrifying and intense as it is ‘silent’. People didn’t want to go to a theatre to watch it because even the slightest noise of someone eating popcorn, or a child crying could unsettle the mood of the entire hall or cause a jumpscare when there wasn’t one in the film. This film follows the lives of the Abbot family as they try to avoid blind but noise-sensitive alien creatures who are picking off humans one-by-one. This movie is bound to keep you on the edge of your seats with anxiety, so hold onto something and watch on!
