A Quiet Place offers a minor twist or two on the creature feature formula. However, the cast sells the material so well that one can overlook its shortcomings fairly easily. Despite a few questionable tropes simply designed to put the leads in danger, the movie delivers the goods and is an effective little scare flick.

The story is set in a deserted small town and farm, following a family as they anxiously wander through the area in their bare feet. Lee (John Krasinski)...
