When it comes to secretive marketing campaigns, no one does it like Cloverfield. The franchise will announce a movie and just drop it on Netflix the same day with no warning, so you can understand how some people look at any secretive movie with some suspicion. That's what happened to A Quiet Place, a horror movie about a family that must live in silence to avoid murderous creatures who hunt by sound. It sounds like a Cloverfield-ish premise, but the movie exists entirely on its own and producer Brad Fuller told CinemaBlend that he thought the rumors that it was actually going to be part of the Cloverfield universe were kind of funny. According to Fuller...
A Quiet Place hit theaters this weekend and it looks to be another entry of satisfying horror films that sway critics and audiences alike. Thanks to its premise of remaining silent, the movie drew plenty of attention from moviegoers and the excellent reviews brought everybody else. The movie is entirely original and isn't a part of any franchise, but that didn't stop some internet theorists from thinking it might be a lowkey Cloverfield movie. However, this was apparently never the case for the movie, even though the script came from Paramount, home of the Cloverfield movies. Producer Brad Fuller thinks the rumors mainly came from the reaction to the teaser, which had to be minimalist with the plot, but only because it had to be marketed that way.
Even though A Quiet Place isn't a part of the Cloverfield franchise currently, is it possible that it could be retooled down the line to be a Cloverfield movie? Not likely, producers Brad Fuller and Andrew Form told CinemaBlend. A Quiet Place is its own world and maybe it's best that it stays that way.
It might not be a Cloverfield movie, but A Quiet Place is pretty good and you'll still enjoy it! The movie is in theaters right now.
