Movie: The Silence(2019)[tt7315484] The story of a family struggling to survive in a world terrorized by a deadly, primeval species who have evolved for millions of years in the pitch darkness of a vast underground cave system, hunting only with their acute hearing. As the family seeks refuge in a remote haven where they can wait out the invasion, they start to wonder what kind of world will remain when they're ready to emerge.

I found this film well directed by cinematographer turned director John R. Leonetti, and the acting fairly decent, but this B-grade film failed miserably with its screenplay. The Van Dyke's left many plot issues, and threw in scenes that needed more backstory. The pacing and length were decent, but this film needed more... such as Closed Captions for the Sign scenes that clearly no one could understand unless they knew sign language. I had to rewind, enable CC, then have to put up with every sound, song and dialogue plastered on my screen in text. The score was also too evident and out of place in most scenes, but unlike some of the other reviewers complaining about the creatures, I found them (CGI and V/SFX) well created and convincing, especially for a B-grade film. Still, this film could have been much better, but sadly missed the mark. It's certainly does not deserve all these 1 & 2's, but not even close to any 9 & 10's. It's a fair 6/10 from me.
