A family heads to the country to tend to the matriarch’s solitude while her husband is in the hospital (or something), and finds themselves trapped by a monster that can only track them by sound in Don’t Speak, produced by Proportion Productions and released by our good friends at Uncork’d Entertainment. Someone (maybe writer-director Scott Jeffrey) watched A Quiet Place (2018) and said, “that movie needs a prequel to be set in England”. Its alternative title is Silent Place, but no one needed to be sued for more than the movie will ever gross, so Don’t Speak it is.
There is a creature hunting this unknown town and it’s eating people, filling them full of eggs and stringing them up like fresh mozzarella. Rita (Stephanie Lodge) and Alan (Ryan Davies) rush to her Mom’s (Helen Minassian) side after Rita’s father fall’s ill. It becomes a family affair as son Ben (Jake Watkins) and daughter Charlie (Georgina Jane) come with, and for some inexplicable reason, Charlie’s boyfriend, Tyler (Will Stanton) also joins them. Once they arrive they discover the town is empty, everyone is missing, and there is a creature hunting them. Oh – and nothing electrical, like cars or cellphones, works (except flashlights – ssshhhhhh). Could the military installation nearby have something to do with it? No one knows.
