"Forced to venture into the unknown, they quickly realise that the creatures that hunt by sound are not the only threats that lurk beyond the sand path." 

Fortunately for fans, the film, which was written by The Office star, has had a very warm reception, with one person writing: "#AQuietPlace2 is a gripping continuation that delivers the tension & thrills of its predecessor with more ambition & mastery of the genre. With stunning sound design & impeccable editing, it makes its mark as one of the best horror sequels of all time!"

Another added: "John Krasinski absolutely crushes it with #AQuietPlace2. This film is built to be seen on the biggest and loudest screen possible. The thrills are even more intense than the first, and the story arcs are more compelling. This is easily one of the best movies of the year."
