  • Has similar elements to A Quiet Place (2018) which stars Stanley Tucci's sister-in-law Emily Blunt. However, Tim Lebbon's book, from which this film is based, was published in August 2015 and the film began shooting in September 2017, both before A Quiet Place (2018) was released.
  • This is based on the novel Silence by Tim Lebbon that was published in 2015. The movie, A Quiet Place released in 2018 basically copies the entire book right down to the deaf girl. So if you've seen that movie and think this one just copied it; it's the other way around. Added: while this may be true, the screenplay for A Quiet Place was begun in 2013, before the publication of the novel. This is most likely one of those coincidental parallel creative development situations that do happen on a regular basis in the arts.
