That's because much of John Krasinski's ingeniously creepy new film, in which he stars alongside his real-life wife, Emily Blunt, takes place in near silence. This is a movie about a world where noise gets you killed.If you ate popcorn in the movie, you'd quickly be dead, unless you were standing by a waterfall.In his third feature outing as director, Krasinski has a lot going for him. He's an inventive premise (the fever dream of some vengeful librarian?), a terrific cast featuring two highly effective child actors, and a superb co-star in Blunt, who can register fear, joy, love and anxiety in a single scene without uttering a word.Krasinski and fellow screenwriters Bryan Woods and Scott Beck are cleverly tapping into universal parental angst here.Blunt escorts us through one in particular (a nod to Sigourney Weaver's turn in a noted title from 1979) that is applause-worthy.
