#5 The Silence
Allow us to make one thing very clear: we love Netflix and we watch every series and movie they produce, that’s why it hit us in the feels when “The Silence” didn’t live up to the beginning and middle of the movie.
Starring Stanley Tucci and Kiernan Shipka (Oh hey, Sabrina!) as a father-and-daughter-duo, they flee with their entire family in an attempt to find refuge from the monstrous flesh-eating pterodactyl-like creatures that kind of look like buffalo wings at first glance. They’re blind monsters, BTW, so it shouldn’t be too hard, right?
Oh, guess again, because these buffalo wings have super-sonic hearing and will eat you if you make a sound. As with any apocalypse-themed movie, this fam is out to find a safe haven. Once the writers heartbreakingly kill off the dog and the grandma, we were bawling our eyes out. (Why is it always the cute and helpless ones??)
Everything was perfect until it reached the open-ended conclusion. The family finds the safe haven, and after a few years, Kiernan’s character had grown out her hair and she and her boyfriend transformed into bow-and-arrow-wielding hunters who target the monsters in the woods. Okay, great. So, now what?
