A place in silence Part II: Do not speak louder, but they listen to you

A place in silence Part II: Do not speak louder, but they listen to you

After the very good taste that we had after the first A place in silence, a thriller that was played with the horror film, and in which there were only a few lines of dialogue, what to expect from a continuation?

It was needed?

The fans wanted to see what the Abbott family was left with, attacked by sinister monsters that attack at the slightest sound, and the producers, raise more money (the original cost $ 17 million and reaped 350 million worldwide).

Since Regan, the eldest daughter, is hard of hearing, the Abbotts decided in advance to communicate without emanating sounds, and by using sign language. They were fixing it quite, quite well. Evelyn’s cochlear implant, for example, also serves to ward off beasts by amplifying their sound frequencies.

Better not lose it.

Daddy Lee (Krasinski, husband in real life of Emily Blunt, and director of the first and this second part) and the end of the first part had left us in suspense.

Suspense is what abounded in the 2018 premiere, and also in this one. Of course, the effect is not the same, because what seemed original, when turning to the same issue, does not tire at all, but it does not have the same result either.

They start in the same place

The two films begin almost in the same place, but in two different timelines (those who saw the first, pay attention when the father passes through the market, what you see on a shelf …).

These aliens that the Abbotts, the Costellos and all the families in town and beyond are escaping from, have very sharp ears, so there is no sound or noise to be made, because having no eyes, they are driven by what they listen to catch and kill their prey. They are eyeless predators, because they come from a planet where there would be no light. And they arrive from meteorites, fleeing from their planet when it is destroyed.

The first attack – which predates what we saw when the first movie started, meaning Part II starts out as a prequel to Part I, and then becomes a sequel – begins when the Abbotts are seeing how Marcus, the one who He was the youngest son, he’s at bat in a baseball game.

What happens is, almost, traced from the attack of the Shark from Spielberg on Amityville Beach on the 4th of July holiday. Everyone to run.

It cannot be said that the Abbotts have not lived in a bubble (sanitary or not), but the time has come to go out and find another shelter.

Now, in what would be the present time, Evelyn (Emily Blunt), Regan (Millicent Simmonds), Marcus (Noah Jupe) and the newborn baby, go out to find a new place in the world. And that’s where they will cross paths with Emmett (the Irish Cillian Murphy, Thomas Shelby en Peaky Blinders), who is more cautious than them, because people are going crazy.

And there will be samples to spare.

What was said, in a low voice or whispering: A place in silence Part II It does not get as exciting as the first, but there are some surprises in store to get scared and wait to see the third (and last in the saga) and before that, the spin-off that will premiere in two years.
