My personal opinion: it’s a film with a lot of potential. It is scary, but above all is very well built from a point of view script. The fact of seeing a family living “in a normal way” but without any sound, it is a novelty and it strongly supports the drama and survival of the situation. And then there’s something really different about it, a horror movie, without cries in all directions, muffled soundsetc.
