A Quiet Place | Spooky Season

Episode #49

I recently heard for the first time ever, the phrase - "Lightning in a Bottle" - which I was instantly tantalized by! But if there was ever a perfect idea to express the greatness of the John Krasinksi Horror film A QUIET PLACE, it would be "Lightning in a Bottle". I am a total wimp when it comes to all things horror, but a film this good (and some motivation from my wife) can always get me to eventually press play!

A horror film made on a budget of just $13 million, no less by a first time director, most famous for his role in The Office. HOW DOES THAT FILM EXCELL THIS WELL!? Like the Abbot's themselves, the result of amazingly talented people working together. Let me tell you all about it! 

"A Quiet Place" is a 2018 Horror/Thriller film written by Bryan Woods & Scott Beck and John Krasinski, Directed by John Krasinksi, Staring: Emily Blunt, John Krasinksi, Millicent Simmonds, and Noah Jupe.

"In a post-apocalyptic world, a family is forced to live in silence while hiding from monsters with ultra-sensitive hearing."
