A Quiet Place Review

Emma O'Leary | May 17 2018 | in Arts & Culture

I walked into the theatre with high hopes for a thrilling, spooky movie, and that is what I got, but I admit my heart was never pounding out of suspense.  “A Quiet Place” isn’t chock full of demons or possessed little girls, which makes it a refreshing new twist on a horror movie. The opening scene immediately sets the uneasy mood of the movie, as if everyone in the movie is holding their bre...
