First Reactions To "Bananas" A Quiet Place Say It Could Be A Monster Flick for the Ages

Check out the first social media responses to John Krasinski's movie, which opened the SXSW Film Festival

If the audience at the opening night of the South By Southwest Film Festival is any indication—and breakout hits like last year’s Baby Driver suggest it is—director John Krasinski looks to have a hit on his hands with A Quiet Place. Those gathered for the movie’s world premiere on Friday night shrieked, gasped, and dug their nails into those poor Paramount Theater seats. Then, of course, they tweeted about it.

The horror movie, in which Krasinski stars with wife Emily Blunt alongside Millicent Simmonds and Noah Jupe as a family terrorized by something that reacts to sound (we’re going to keep this spoiler-free), has drawn quick and breathless praise on social media. Here’s what critics and film journalists are saying.

UPDATE: And…the Tomatometer is live for A Quiet Place. With the first official reviews trickling through, Krasinski’s third feature is sitting at a very loud 100%. Keep checking in to see if the score holds.


IT’S KRASINSKI’S BEST FILM AS DIRECTOR

IT’S A CREATURE FEATURE FOR THE MODERN AGE
