  • *H E S P E A K S*

  • Such a great movie, and so proud of John!

  • Hey Jim!

  • Once I watched the Office before and then I watched this movie and I was like “is this the guy in the office 😂” *Once you see I you can’t unsee it*

  • Subbed At 999,000+. Here b4 1mil

  • Its a cochlear implant, not a hearing aid. Great movie though!

  • *gassspppp* SHIA LABEOUF???

  • This movie is amazing! That's all I have to say about it! :)

  • This movie goes on the list of my all time favorites. Watching a silent movie in a theater was a great experience. If one audience member coughed, that brought my anxiety up because you would think the monster would hear it. This movie took away my breath. So great.

  • I keep hoping he would stretch his arms so I could see his nipples.

  • This movie is more sad then scary

  • liar, the first "biggest" noise was the spaceship

  • Except that we hear sound right at the beginning with the little boy lol come on jim

  • i loved it.

  • When this scene happened in the movie I felt like I almost had a heart attack because it was so loud compared to everything else before it

  • I haven’t seen it. So if they had to be quiet or they would die why didn’t they just leave where they were?

  • Deaf girl talks to a big tuna?

  • John Krasinski is the only reason I’ll watch this movies if I get scared I’ll just think of Jim and Pam and CeCe and Phillip.

  • I don't understand how people hate this movie. Perhaps because it was promoted as horror when I think it was a thriller/slice of life

  • If only he put a very loud speaker on top of a very high place and play songs like the ones played most on clubs, songs that are deafening. Probably they can talk normally.

  • CAN ARMY USE SILENCER?

  • Every time I see John I just say *Jim*

  • When is see John i see JIM

  • I love John Krasinski so much. He’s an amazing actor. 💛💛

  • I love how he's still sometimes give that casual Jim's face in the end of a sentence.

  • Me: John Krasinsky has really grown as an artist and people need to stop limiting him to comedy because of The Office. Also me: hehe funny jim with beard

  • 2:02 and that jumped scare me and cursed in the middle of the theater

  • He spoke here more than in actual movie

  • My family would literally die within five minutes

  • This guy with a beard made me think he was Shia labeouf

  • They’ve been on the longest office silence streaks for.... 4 years

  • Imagine a blind person listening to this movie

  • I like the pieces there cute

  • How about you download a pitch on your phone

  • When he started yelling, Dwight should’ve been there. He could’ve pepper sprayed the alien

  • shave your beard you gorilla :) #gobacktopamalready

  • oi, what happened to pam mate?! huh

  • I

  • imagine having to use the toilet in that movie

  • Is his shirt see-through

  • I watched this in the theater and it was better to watch there

  • Those kids are actually incredibly talented performers!

  • I loved this movie

  • Since this movie had a good ending.. is this still considered horror?

  • Fact

  • We watched this movie last 2 weeks ago. With my cousins, my sister, and my mom. Trying our best not to make noises. But honestly, if our lives could be like that, boi, i wont survive coz i gon' be dead for the next 25 seconds. Im way too loud. I could die easily if thats the case. A paradise for the parents, Too sad for the children coz they wont disrespect mom and dad lmao.

  • I that u were dead

  • My theory is if this is true that the monsters hate sound in general

  • But... he died...

  • John, you are the best! I need more movies!

  • My fam: blah blah blah Apocalypse: run hide My fam: looks at the apocalypse My fam: looks back blah blah blah Apocalypse: oh you dead now

  • The movie was great.. only major complaint I have was when krasinski got killed.. like.. why didn't he try to just throw the shovel.. or idk.. just seems like he could have done alot of things before deciding to kill himself

  • To me it speaks to censorship issues in modern times regarding easily offense addicts and trollers jumping on free speech.

  • 8===D {()}

  • If it was my family and we died the reason would be my brother whining Edit: also as soon as the sound kicked in the film I was so scared! 👍🏻 gj dude
