John Krasinski returns to direct A Quiet Place: Part II, the sequel to his 2018 horror hit A Quiet Place. The first movie emerged as a surprise critical and commercial success, deploying sound to spine-chilling effect in its story of horrific monsters with an acute sense of hearing.

Krasinski's real-life wife Emily Blunt is back as Evelyn Abbott, who now must lead her children Marcus (Noah Jupe) and Regan (Millicent Simmonds), plus their newborn baby, on a journey into the unknown. With their homestead destroyed, the Abbotts must now find a new place to live, navigating a dangerous world infested with the bloodthirsty creatures. And an equally deadly threat emerges in the form of survivor Emmett  (Cillian Murphy), who may well know more about the wider situation than he's letting on.

The first social media reactions have been unleashed ahead of the film's release on the 19th of March. And they're teasing a frightening, thought-provoking sequel that expands the mythology of A Quiet Place while ratcheting up the suspense.

Fandango editor Erik Davis describes it as a worthy sequel that will have viewers gnawing away at their fingernails.

Indiewire's Kate Erbland says the movie fills in the gaps without ruining the surprises.

Uproxx editor Mike Ryan says he's come up with an alternative name for the film.

As before, the careful modulation of sound, from the slightest rustle of leaves to the most bloodcurdling of screams, is a vital character in the drama. So says Comicbook.com writer Chris Killian.

DailyDead news journalist Heather Wixson says that the movie belongs to two of the main actors.

And Rotten Tomatoes editor-in-chief Joel Meares is another critic who praises Simmonds' performance.
