    I really loved this except for the weaknes of the monsters... doesnt seem to make any sense why humanity seems near extinction when all it needed was to find a certain frequency to stop them. Still enjoyed the movie up until the end. Gj jon!

    This movie was so well written and directed. I absolutely loved it and I loved how emotional the ending was. I rarely cry during movies but I definitely cried during this one.

  • Kate Bauer Art

    It was an interesting movie, but a few things frustrated me throughout. Why didn't they live nearer the river/running water? No one really tried high frequency to kill or debilitate these things before they took over? What group just leaves the youngest to trail behind when there are killing monsters around....He'd surely be in the middle or holding a parents hand? I feel like I'd sat through that really silent, suspenseful movie, and then was robbed of the ending. Instead it just cut to black...That aside, I thought the actors were great and really believable.

    I just finished the whole series of The Office. This looks like Jim Halper making a sales presentation to me. I bet John Krasinski would probably hate to see this comment because The Office is ancient history to him and he is talking about this latest project that he is doubling as actor and director, but I can't help!

    I think it’s really cool how he’s a director of a great horror movie, and that himself and his wife were involved in the acting to. It’s also cool how he explained the details in the background and how everything has a story behind it. (the next sentence Has spoilers) Also, having the youngest son die and not being able to morn about it causes great sadness to me. If I could give this movie a rating, I’d give it, with no hesitation, a 5 out of 5. 👏

    My mum falls asleep during every movie, it doesn't matter what it is, it could be sci-fi, drama, Rom-com anything even the biggest loudest Michael bay-est film in existence she'll fall asleep in the first 10 minutes. The fact she stayed awake during the whole film and was literally glued to the screen and story despite it almost being a silent movie is testament to how good a story this is!

    the lantern scene is kinda dumb though... they have access to the electricity and still give their kids a lantern instead of a lamp. why would you? the main thing in the movie is that ultrasound can almost kill monsters. why then scientists didn't think of it in a first place?? it would be the first assumption of any doctor or scientist. the whole concept was ruined when I started thinking about it more...

    Love this movie. It takes a true genius to make a film genuinely frightening, by practically removing sounds. If one manages to raise a very high tension by doing so, one has succeeded. The fact that the characters needed to be silent, made this film terrifying most of the time. Besides, the design of the creatures is phenomenal and the general idea of this film.

    FALSE - there was so much noise in this film the title is stupid and illogical. FACT.

  • Nikola Radev

    The movie isn't meant to be realistic, but as realistic as possible - keep that in mind~
    Thinking of all the random sounds you could involuntarily make it would be impossible to survive for a long period of time; impossible to pro-create, etc.
    I wonder why they never tried distracting sounds - such as throwing a heavy rock in the opposite of their direction; or establishing themselves near a place with constant loud noise such as the waterfall - where they could have a higher chance of survival = etc.
