A Quiet Place was such a welcome surprise when I first saw it back in 2018. John Krasinski who directed the film, was in attendance at that screening and he spoke passionately about how much the film meant to him and all the reasons why he wanted to make it. I found it to be a very impressive film from a directorial standpoint, and when all was said and done it was absolutely one of the best horror films that year along with one of the most tense. Having said that, I was not hankering for a sequel as I felt the story worked perfectly as a one off and wasn’t sure if the story left was worth telling. Well I was very, very wrong as A Quiet Place II is a worthy follow up that may be even better in some ways than the original.
