Horror Scenes That I Love: The Old Man In The Woods In A Quiet Place

Since I reviewed A Quiet Place earlier today, it seems appropriate that today’s scene that I love is taken from that film.

In this scene, Lee Abott (John Krasinski) and his son come across an old man in the woods.  The old man is looking down at the remains of a woman who we presume to be his wife.  What he does next is a reminder of just how brutal and unforgiving life can be.  When the man screams, it’s the first human voice that we’ve heard in a while.  It’s also a cry of surrender and sacrifice, one that sets up the conclusion of the film.

Watch, listen, and don’t make a sound.
