“It’s a genre film at the end of the day, it’s got huge scares, it’s incredibly intense, but, yet it’s an ambitious concept. I feel this [SXSW] is the crowd to welcome that kind of uniqueness,” said cast member Emily Blunt.
A Quiet Place is a modern horror thriller about a family of four, who must navigate their lives in silence after mysterious creatures that hunt by sound threaten their survival. The film is directed by John Krasinski and written by Krasinski, Bryan Woods and Scott Beck. A Quiet Place made its World Premiere at the 2018 SXSW Film Festival on Friday, March 9, as the Opening Night Film.
Krasinski is a multifaceted artist, engaging audiences with his scene-stealing roles in film and television, while also challenging himself as a writer/director. He will next star in Amazon’s Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan, executive produced by Carlton Cuse and Krasinski. Through his production venture, Sunday Night, Krasinski directed and starred in The Hollars released by SPC.
