The experimental nature of “A Quiet Place” sets it apart from most horror movies, but the film’s use of silence to set the audience’s nerves on edge is only part of what makes it special. At its heart, “A Quiet Place” and its sequel, “A Quiet Place II,” are stories about parental love and family. Yes, there are aliens lurking on the periphery and all sorts of apocalyptic drama to navigate, but nothing is more important to parents Evelyn (Emily Blunt) and Lee (John Krasinski) than providing stability for their children.
And they’re not alone. The horror genre is full of moms and dads who would do anything to keep their kids safe. As we wait for “A Quiet Place 3” (and it’s gonna be a long wait — the movie isn’t coming until 2025!), these 16 movies like the original film illustrate parental dedication.
