1. A Quiet Place
Earning the distinction of best horror movie is A Quiet Place starring Emily Blunt. IF THEY HEAR YOU, THEY HUNT YOU. In this “mind-blowingly tense” (Isaac Feldberg; The Boston Globe) thriller, a family must navigate their lives in silence to avoid mysterious creatures that hunt by sound. Knowing that even the slightest whisper or footstep can bring death, Evelyn (Emily Blunt) and Lee (John Krasinski) are determined to find a way to protect their children at all costs while they desperately search for a way to fight back.
