13 Movies Like A Quiet Place That Are Definitely Worth Watching

"A Quiet Place" was a refreshing original sci-fi horror movie that became a sensation when it debuted in 2018. It couldn't have come sooner.

A change of pace was very welcome.Director John Krasinski developed the original premise with co-writers Bryan Woods and Scott Beck, crafting a post-apocalyptic world wh...

Opinion: Stealthing is still flying under the radar
