Netflix has a new horror movie coming in a couple of weeks, and they just dropped The Silence – Official Trailer so you can preview what it’s all about. It takes place in a world where humans are under attack by menacing creatures that use sound to hunt their prey. Kiernan Shipka plays a 16-year-old girl that lost her hearing and seeks refuge with her family, but that brings more troubles.
If it sounds like it may be a ripoff of last year’s A Quiet Place, note that this movie is based on the novel The Silence, by Tim Lebbon, which was published in 2015. This movie was also in production before A Quiet Place was released.
