Who knew that the droll, genial actor of The Office had the chops to make an awesome horror film? Just like comedian Jordan Peele who surprised audiences with his hugely successful, Get Out!, Krasinski begins with a highly original concept. A family of four (including real life spouses Krasinski and Emily Blunt) survive an alien attack in upstate New York, but must remain absolutely silent, or else be detected by the aliensí ability to track humans by their slightest sound. Without much dialogue, the film gets its many thrills from the actors’  expressive faces, the eerie music, and the inventive camera angles that are, after all, what make a horror film great.

“The movie takes us firmly by the hand and escorts us down a darkened path, leading to one of the most profound of communal pleasures: the sound of a movie audience screaming as one.” Sam Adams, Slate.com
