If horror movies are your thing, you may have heard of a film called A Quiet Place. It was easily one of the most anticipated movies of 2018, and anticipation is even higher for the sequel that was recently announced. I'll be honest - the movie definitely freaked me, and lots of other people out with all the jump scares and suspense. If you're patiently waiting for the sequel, you've got something to watch in the meantime - this new Netflix movie is a scarier version of A Quiet Place.
The film is called The Silence and stars Kiernan Shipka (who you may recognize from Mad Men or The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina), alongside Miranda Otto, Stanley Tucci, and John Corbett. The plotline of the film is almost identical to A Quiet Place - a family struggles and fights to survive after the planet has been invaded by deadly creatures that hunt by sound.
In A Quiet Place, the monsters we meet are not very realistic looking, which makes the movie a bit less scary, but in The Silence, the monsters look an awful lot like bats that you might actually see in real life, so you'll probably be a lot more prone to nightmares after watching.
The trailer for the film was released this morning, which you can check out above. The Silence will be available for streaming on Netflix as of April 10th.
