John Krasinski (THE OFFICE) directs and stars alongside his real-life spouse Emily Blunt (LOOPER) in a terrifying tale of desperate parents scrambling to keep their kids safe in the ruins of the world.
The military couldn't stop them. The best and brightest minds of the world couldn't stop them. The common cold couldn't stop them. The invaders own the Earth now. And if they hear so much as a twig crack when it shouldn't they will strike with overwhelming force. Humanity's only hope for survival? Silence. Total. Silence.
Blunt and Krasinski mine their experience as parents and their tremendous chemistry to create a taut, terrifying hybrid of horror and science fiction. And as director and co-writer, Krasinski makes superb use of sound and its absence. A toy space shuttle's "blast off" noise has never been so alarming.
