    A Quiet Place: Day One, The Alien Invasion Begins

    "A Quiet Place: Day One" follows Samira and Joseph Quinn as they navigate an alien invasion in Manhattan, offering a dramatic prequel to the original horror film.

    “A Quiet Place: Day One” is a horror film set on the island of Manhattan, where a mysterious alien species crashes land. The film follows the story of Stage 4 cancer patient Samira and Joseph Quinn, who meet a stranger named Eric while traveling far from home when the aliens crash land in New York. The prequel to the popular creature picture, “A Quiet Place,” centers on a couple who don’t seem to have much of a survival instinct. The film’s main pitch is to “discover why our world went quiet,” but the solution to that question is already known.

    Theoretically, “Day One” offers a more comprehensive examination of the chaos, but it falls short of that promise. Most of the action takes place off-screen, and not even the authorities make an effort to retaliate. The film raises questions about the food these Noids/Death Angels consume, as they kill almost anything that moves. The movie also includes a difficult-to-understand sequence in which three aliens consume feathery ovomorphs from the movie “Alien.”

    A Struggle for Survival

    “Day One” is presented as a catastrophe film in the vein of Roland Emmerich’s “Independence Day,” with money views of the Brooklyn Bridge collapsing into the East River and empty streets that allude to 9/11 and “I Am Legend.” The film gives the impression that only a few hundred people live in Manhattan, and the city is a ghost town on the first day of the invasion.

    Samira’s decision to accompany a school trip to a Manhattan marionette theater, led by a medic (Alex Wolff), is kind of coincidental. The aliens target the humans who make the most noise as soon as they land. The protagonists in this movie already know everything that took humans 474 days to discover in the previous films.

    Catastrophe in the City

    Military helicopters swoop overhead, broadcasting commands to keep silent as Samira hides out in the marionette theater with a group of strangers. Eric is located by Frodo, who then guides him to Samira. Though a more understanding audience could find this nothing-to-lose bond between two lonely souls, their immediate bond appears forced.

    To his credit, Sarnoski conducts a few suspenseful set pieces, but there aren’t quite enough of them for a film set in the “Quiet Place” universe.
