Noah and Daren were both thrilled at the scares and the unique use of sensory effects (or lack thereof) to enhance suspense and make sequences scarier in A Quiet Place.
The focus on visuals for storytelling & world-building rather than dialogue helped focus on the need to stay in world and maintain the silence to survive the monsters showcased the acting and the directing, both exceeding expectations.
