What parents need to know

Parents need to know that A Quiet Place Part II is the sequel to the 2018 horror film about a family struggling for survival in a world of monsters that are triggered by sound. Following the events of the original, in which (possible spoiler alert) father Lee (John Krasinski) sacrificed himself to save the rest of his family, single mother Evelyn (Emily Blunt) and her three young children use American Sign Language to stave off the monsters as they leave their homestead to face the outside world ... only to discover that the remaining humans may be a greater threat than the monsters. A Quiet Place Part II looks just as gripping and nail biting as the original, with lots of jump scares, blood, and violence and themes of post-apocalyptic desperation and survival. Djimon Hounsou and Cilian Murphy co-star.
