    I completely enjoyed this interview. Scary movies are my least favorite but I'm going to try to make it through A Quiet Place. Thanks for sharing!

    I’m a die hard horror fan and have been for 25+ years so over the last ten years watching horror literally slam head on into a train has sucked but this film is EXACTLY what horror has been needing. Excellent cast, great story, beautiful all around, creepy and unique and just LOVED it.

    Comedians are killing it with horror debuts. First Jordan Peele's Get Out and now John Krasinski's A Quiet Place.

    Why's that guy's hair so grossy? Is that a new hipster trend over there taken to a whole new level now? Looking clean is also a way of showing respect to whoever you're meeting.

    Just after this timestamp: 29:05 the camera angle makes it look like John is looking right at you. It is a little odd 😛

  • Will Neisen

    That guy who asked the batteries question was a tool. making a good movie is damn near impossible, why jab at a "flaw" that is so tiny.

    John's an amazing guy – and not because of his riches or fame, but because of his curiosity, loving heart, and hard work. Three things majorly lacking in Hollywood and I'm thankful for successful individuals like John that shine like a star through the darkness!

    I've never thought about like that, aside from Michael, Dwight and a couple others, most characters in the office were acted as normal people put in crazy situations. They didn't over act stuff to be funny they acted in a way that was genuine making it funny.

    "Audiences are very, very smart"? Our Presidential choices were narrowed down to Trump and Hillary! Geniuses, aren't we?

  • Matt Evans

    I had to physically applaud John for the batteries answer at 33:45. What a perfect way to combat that question by not giving away spoilers. Anyone who's seen the movie will know why.

    Funny how people answer the same questions the same ways in different interviews. It makes sense, but I honestly detest answering questions multiple times. Mostly because I wouldn't be able to remember how I answered it last time.

  • ZowieFawn

    Yes, I didn’t want something to happen to the family and was scared for that. There was still plenty of jump scares too though.

    John Krasinki is one hell of an intelligent dude. On top of that, he has done really well with 'A Quiet Place' because as a very critical person when it comes to movies where most usually doesn't stick after a day or two after watching, 'A Quiet Place' remained to haunt me. It was such a fucking awesome cinematic experience and it definitely deserves the recognition it is getting and when someone comes rambling about the debate on why Netflix films deserve to be in the spotlight for awards and Oscars, tell them to shut up and watch 'A Quiet Place' and they will know why films are meant to be seen in theaters not behind your desktop or living room.

    Loved his baseball bat analogy. Anyone who played the game knows exactly what he is talking about. Nothing quite like the feeling of contact with the sweet spot

    Love the below comment by Bishop Robert Barron in that he considers this as the "most unexpectedly religious films of 2018."

    "I went to see A Quiet Place, John Krasinski’s new thriller, with absolutely no anticipation of finding theological or spiritual themes. I just wanted a fun evening at the movies. How wonderful when a film surprises you! I don’t know if I can find the golden thread that draws all of these themes together into a coherent message, but I think one would have to be blind not to see a number of religious motifs in this absorbing film.

    The basic structure of the narrative is laid out in simple, deft strokes. We learn that a terrible plague of fierce, devouring creatures has descended on the earth. Where are the monsters from? Outer space, maybe? We’re never told—which makes the story more compelling. The few people who have survived the holocaust have learned that the creatures, though blind, are extraordinarily acute of hearing. Therefore, the key to survival is silence. Our attention becomes focused on the Abbot family, two youthful parents and three small children, making their quiet way through a beautiful but dangerous open country. When the youngest of the kids flips a switch on his toy rocket, causing buzzing sound to pierce the silence, one of the beasts devours him just before his terrified father can save him.

    We flash-forward several months later, and we watch the Abbots (can the name have possibly been accidental?) going about their lives in what could only be characterized as a monastic manner: no conversations above a whisper, elaborate sign language, quiet work at books and in the fields, silent but obviously fervent prayer before the evening meal, etc. (I will confess that this last gesture, so thoroughly absent from movies and television today, startled me.) Given the awful demands of the moment, any gadgets, machines, electronic entertainment, or noisy implements are out of the question. Their farming is by hand; their fishing is done with pre-modern equipment; even their walking about is done barefoot. And what is most marvelous to behold is that, in this prayerful, quiet, pre-modern atmosphere, even with the threat of imminent death constantly looming, a generous and mutually self-sacrificing family flourishes. The parents care for and protect their children, and the remaining brother and sister are solicitous toward one another and toward their parents. The young girl even regularly risks her life to pay silent tribute to her fallen brother at the spot where he was killed.

    Monsters and beasts in the more reflective horror movies are evocative of those things that frighten us the most: illness, failure, our own wickedness, death itself. How wonderful that a Hollywood movie would suggest that what is needed to keep the darkness at bay in our time is silence, simplicity, a return to the earth, prayer, and care for one another.

    The central drama of A Quiet Place is that Mrs. Abbott is expecting a child. The entire family realizes, of course, that a wailing infant would, given the circumstances, mean almost certain death for all of them. And yet, they decide not to kill the child at his birth but to hide him and mute his cries in various ways. When so many in our culture are willing to murder their children for the flimsiest of reasons, when the law gives full protection even to partial-birth abortion, when people blithely say that they would never bring a baby into such a terrible world, the monastic family in this film welcomes life, even into the worst of worlds, and even when such an act is of supreme danger to them. As the baby is coming into the light, the mother finds herself alone (watch the film for the details) and in the most vulnerable situation, for one of the beasts has made its way into their house. As she labors to give birth, the devouring animal lurks. I was put immediately in mind of the scene in the book of Revelation, where Mary is in the throes of child birth as the dragon patiently waits to consume the child.

    As the abbess is struggling to give birth, the abbot has gone in search of his endangered children. He finds them, to his horror, trapped in an abandoned car, one of the beasts clawing at them through the roof, like the T-Rex in Jurassic Park. After mouthing the words, “I love you; I have always loved you” to his daughter, who gapes at him through the car window, the father screams, drawing the monster to himself. This act of self-emptying love, which serves to liberate his children from danger, is beautifully evocative of the speculations of the Church Fathers regarding the death of Jesus. In his act of self-sacrifice on the cross, the fathers argued, Jesus lured the dark powers into the open and away from the human beings who had been in their thrall. Along similar lines, in an odd working of plot or Providence that can be likened to the efficacy of Christ's sacrifice, it becomes clear in the wake of the father's death that he has left behind for his family the means by which the monsters can be defeated.

    I have no real idea whether any or all of this was in the mind of the filmmaker, but I do know from John Krasinski’s Wikipedia page that he is the son of a Polish-Catholic father and an Irish-Catholic mother and that he was raised a devout practicer of his faith. So until definitively shown otherwise, I am going to maintain that A Quiet Place is the most unexpectedly religious film of 2018."

    Hands up to john krasinski for the advice he took when he was told "your job in not to deliver these lines funny your job is to deliver these lines play the truth of the moment and it people think its funny then people think its funny" thanks to greg danials WOW again hands up

  • Kiki McKnight

    "watching someone paint their ideas through the air"… — what a beautiful description of ASL!! Love it!

  • Sr Azul

    I wonder why they did not give Beau Abbott no type of press coverage . I know he was killed of first but he still was part off the CAST. Was he not?

  • vfxardist

    Everything for the kids lmao they leave the little toddler behind and everyone walks in front. He gets killed because of bad parenting.

  • Lisa Adler

    I 💓 this movie and I truly hope to see more directed by Jhon Burke Krasinski. This movie was amazing artistically.

    Notice which horror movies he saw in the last year. He understands which horror movies are good, without to many unnecessary jump scares, with attention on suspension, or slow paced building of suspense (The Witch, Get Out, Babadook, Let the right one in).
    Thumbs up 👍

    Emily Blunt became my FAVORITE actress when she made Windchill. I loved her in that. Then she made The Devil… I didn’t know who was John was until she started to date. I mean, i knew he was in the office but i didn’t know anything about him. I LOVE THIS GUY!! He’s so strong yet sensitive and funny as hell!!! I loved seeing the real love between them in this movie. And the talent from the kids…omg!

  • harrypotteravenclaw

    Really great. Funny how many office questions there were, I feel like one of the few people who has seen and loved A Quiet Place but has never actually seen The Office.

  • BlueFacondor

    Is the movie perfect? No, but it does so much right. It definitely brought some fresh air into the genre thats but jump scare stale and boring.

  • Fortnite Is Aids

    The movies called “A quiet place” when I watched it in the cinemas they had the volume on max and I swear I was deaf by it

  • Natalie Zayas-Bazan

    No offense to him but audiences ARE stupid. As a screenwriter/video editor myself I can think of multiple films I would have chopped down, they talked down so badly to audiences. ‘Hidden figures’, ‘lion’, ‘la la land’ were ALL SO LONG.
