The Gift (2015) (on netflix)
7/10

"A young married couple's lives are thrown into a harrowing tailspin when an acquaintance from the (Jason Bateman) husband's past brings mysterious gifts and a horrifying secret to light after more than 20 years." - IMDB

Not a bad time-waster. If you're looking for a mild psychological thriller that is a little different from the normal black-and-white good-guys-Vs-bad-guys, you might like this. This is not action-packed, and is more of a slow-burn in regards to suspense. I found the ending interesting, but not at all satisfying. The grey areas created in the main characters' moralities didn't amp-up the suspense or pace, rather it seemed to convolute.

This film was awful. But I love Larry Fessenden.

Day of the Dead: Bloodline - All in all a good remake with great gore, though I call bullshit on stalker Bub.

That's funny... I just heard story on NPR about this film... mostly about just how much silence is in the movie -- as the hook in the news story said, 'so quiet you can hear each crunch of popcorn'.

Film is doing well, getting good reviews.

Seems to me I remember some film had the same theme of having to be silent to avoid monsters... but nothing specific comes to mind.

It would be interesting to see a remake of Day of the Dead. I see the plot is the same... how much did they change in this?

Those two movies are very different in many ways.

There’s a lot of “why’s” in A Quiet Place. No traps. No fighting back. People has just adjusted to these very limited but deadly creatures. And where did they come from, I have no idea.

I need more people to watch this movie so we can discuss it.

They kept a few things here and there.

Remake Bub does bear a resemblance to original Bub and the top soldier does have a bit of Rhodes' tone in him.

The major difference would probably be that the general tone of the film is the tone of this generation, with for example a bit of metoo thrown in the mix as well.
