Screener Squad: The Silence

The Silence Movie Review


Can’t get enough of A Quiet Place? Well, here’s Netflix’s for-all-intents-and-purposes Mockbuster of it, The Silence. So, the premise is, a wildly predatory species of (Pterodactyls?) are released from the ancient underground caves that they live in and in a matter of hours, the world is overrun with them. The creatures respond only to sound so a family who has a deaf child (Kiernan Shipka) has a leg-up on the situation because they all already speak sign language. And then eventually there’s an evil priest, but whatever. I assure you that you will have much more fun listening to Chris, Johnny Neill, and Patience rip this thing apart than you will actually watching the film. Listen to their review here.

Starring: Stanley Tucci, Kiernan Shipka, Miranda Otto, Kate Trotter, John Corbett, Kyle Harrison Breitkopf
