Exclusive ‘A Quiet Place’ Clip Reveals How the Underwater Scene Was Shot

     June 26, 2018


We at Collider are happy to debut an exclusive look at the upcoming home video release of one of 2018’s best films, A Quiet Place. Filmmaker John Krasinski’s family-focused horror thriller was not only a box office bonanza when it hit theaters in April, but it was also critically acclaimed. Indeed, Krasinski masterfully crafted this horror film about a family surviving a post-invasion world infested by aliens that attack based on sound, and he imbued the entire proceeding with deep-rooted emotions in this family. At heart, A Quiet Place is the story of a family overcoming a great loss, and about parents ensuring a better future for the children. It also happens to involve gnarly aliens.

The below clip comes from a featurette included on both the Digital HD and Blu-ray releases of A Quiet Place, and in it some of the craftspeople involved in making the movie a reality discuss how they put together the scene in the basement where the alien travels underwater. They wanted to ensure that the sequence was believable, so it’s a blending of visual effects for the alien, but practical effects for what moves through the water. Ultimately, it’s tremendously effective.

Check out the A Quiet Place behind-the scenes clip below. The film is available on Digital HD starting today and hits Blu-ray and DVD on July 10th.
