Netflix’s “The Silence” is a crapper of a flick…..(brief review)

Nowhere as good as “The Quiet Place” but better than “Birdbox”? No. Stanley Tucci is always viewable and the film, clich√© ridden, is subpar as of story and writing. The little “wasps” are visually nice. Killing your pet, a mom and baby, etc., is not good at any time in a flick like this, or in any film that wants to entertain. For producers that want to make movies like this much better, at least do so with gusto…plenty of gory violence, sex and nudity, and cursing…..this flick is a crapper even with some fine actors involved.¬†



Netflix will get it’s viewership, yet this one disappoints. Do not have the film and can be viewed on Netflix beginning April 10th.
