A Quiet Place (2018) – Over three months in 2020, most of Earth’s human population has been wiped out by sightless creatures with hypersensitive hearing that attack anything that makes noise. The Abbott family— wife Evelyn, husband Lee, congenitally deaf daughter Regan, and sons Marcus and Beau—silently scavenge for supplies in a deserted town. While out in the open, the family communicates with American Sign Language. Four-year-old Beau is drawn to a battery-operated space shuttle toy, but his father takes it away. Regan returns the toy to Beau, who also takes the batteries his father removed. Beau activates the shuttle when the family is walking home through the woods, near a bridge. Its noise makes him an instant target for a nearby creature, and he is swiftly killed.
A year later, Regan still struggles with guilt over her brother’s death, Evelyn is in the final stages of pregnancy, and Lee is fruitlessly trying to make radio contact with the outside world. Lee attempts to upgrade Regan’s cochlear implant with scavenged miniature amplifiers to restore her hearing, but the device is ineffective. Later, Lee takes Marcus to a nearby river to teach him to fish while Regan visits the memorial to Beau at the bridge where he was killed. Lee explains to Marcus that they will always be safe from the creatures so long as louder sounds mask their audible movements. Alone at the house, Evelyn goes into labor earlier than expected. While making her way to their house basement, she steps on a large nail. In pain, she accidentally drops a glass picture frame and alerts a nearby creature. Evelyn flips a switch that changes the exterior house lights to red as a danger signal to the others, and struggles to remain silent during her contractions.
