First Trailer for A QUIET PLACE Creates Terror With Silence

Thanks to decades of slashers, demons, monsters, and killer clowns, audiences know what to expect from a horror film. But next year, A Quiet Place may undermine those expectations by delivering a new cinematic experience of terror. The first teaser trailer for the film has arrived, and it features the real life husband and wife team of John Krasinski and Emily Blunt as parents of two children in a rural area. The family lives together in fear of some unseen force, which is why they attempt to live their lives in silence. But as you’ll soon see, the silence won’t save them.

One of the most striking things about this trailer is the way it builds tension without dialogue. These people are terrified of something, and they’ve seemingly given their lives over to it by doing everything that they can to avoid making any noise. They walk in specific paths outside of their home, they communicate in sign language, and they even know where to step to keep the floor boards from creaking.

Of course, the implication is that this family has lived this way for quite some time, and it’s not clear why they haven’t simply fled their home. But perhaps that’s how deeply this thing (or these things) has a hold over them. Unfortunately, the events glimpsed in the trailer seem to indicate that the family won’t be able to hide in the silence forever. Whatever is out there, it’s coming for them now.

Krasinski directed this film, and it will reportedly have minimal dialogue through the entire script. That should make for a very unique time at movie theaters, when A Quiet Place is released on April 6, 2018.
