Time...

It's cold... you get chills all over your back... 

"Open your eyes..." almost like a whisper carried by the wind. 

You open them slowly, taking your Time, not abruptly regardless of the fact that there should be no one but you in the house.

You have this urgent feeling of looking outside, but... why? What is it that is pushing you so bad to look outside your bedroom window? You know you never do it...

-"Because you are scared of what you might see..."

-"What?"- You said turning around trying to gasp sense among the darkness. 

Did you really hear that? Or do you think you did? Is your mind playing games on you? Nah, it's late and remember you are very tired. What Time is it anyway? 

Time?

Is it too early? Is it too late? Check your phone. But where is it? Probably just laying somewhere on the floor. Check your computer. But where is it?

What? 
Where is it?
What?
My computer.
Where is it?
.
.
.
Where are you?

You get to the window and stay there breathless, speechless. Looking into the void with and your eyes lost in all that beautiful yet mysterious green reflection. 

How long has it been? 

Like if the world was just consumed by Time. What used to be your messy garden, your red brick wall, your black garage door, is now all green, old, destroyed, corrupted by nature. There's no door anymore, there's only half the wall of now green bricks. There's only dust of what it used to be. It's almost like if you were somewhere else, not the place that you used to know. 

Dizziness, loneliness, sadness. 

-"What is this? Am I dead?"- You ask to no one.



-"I don't know... are you?"- Said the whisper in your ear, in your head...

  1. I think the trailer for this film interested a mass majority of movie goers. The film looked like it took place in a post apocalyptic future where humans have to go through a lot just for survival. the most remarkable thing was how quiet the trailer was, the use of silence seemed effective. I was also interested in seeing John Krasinski handle a major studio horror film. I watched The Hollars but I felt like this was Krasinski's time to make a big wave. happy death day review


    The film is about a family who live in solitude with their son and their deaf daughter. They must be careful to be absolutely quiet as there is something that lurks in the shadows and waits to hear sound to prey and attack. They must find a way to not only survive but work on a way to defeat what they are being hunted by. The film stars and is directed John Krasinski and real life wife. The great Millicend Simmonds (who is deaf in real life and also wonderful in Wonderstruck) is also in it. the devil's candy review


    The film uses silence so excellently. The film is dead quiet at many times and all you hear is the effective score or natural surroundings. It creates a wonderful atmosphere. The film also packs a real emotional bunch in its short duration length which was surprising. The performances are spot on. I can't help but point out (as many people already have) how stupid it is to have a baby in this type of environment. Makes no sense whatsoever. Apart from that, the film is worth your time. watch Avengers Infinity War online
