15 Movies You'll Enjoy if You Liked 'A Quiet Place'
It’s no secret that A Quiet Place is one of the most brilliant horror movies ever made. From mounting tension and terrifying jump scares to the expert use of sound, John Krasinski’s 2018 film is effective enough to give anyone chills. The same can be said for his equally terrifying follow-up, A Quiet Place 2, which broke multiple box office records. And now, according to Emily Blunt, who stars as Evelyn Abbott, Krasinski is already thinking of a third movie.
While speaking with Collider, she revealed, “He has a whole arc of ideas that could work. I think he just wanted to see how people responded to [the second movie] before he fully engaged his brain on the third one. But he has a couple of great ideas.”
As thrilled as we are to hear about a possible third movie, something tells us that it’ll be a while before it gets confirmed. But thanks to streaming services like Netflix and Amazon Prime, we’ve got a host of similar horror titles to watch until then. Keep reading for 15 of the best movies like A Quiet Place.
