9. Don’t Speak

Sadly not a biopic about Gwen Stefani and No Doubt, Don't Speak is also known by the name "Silent Place".

Hmm, where have we heard that before...

Yes, this movie has basically the exact same premise as the wildly popular 2018 movie A Quiet Place.

In that film, Emily Blunt and John Krasinski fight to keep their children safe in a world haunted by poorly-sighted but deadly aliens. In this 2020 rip-off, some actors you've never heard of try to kill someone in a blue alien costume on a farm.

Okay, that's not fair. The creature design isn't bad, although it is clearly inspired by the aliens in A Quiet Place. Just look at that head shape.

As for the way the creature acts, there is no avoiding the similarities there. Both sets of baddies hunt via sound, preying on their victims' inability to stay quiet.

Although the Abbott family do a lot better than the numbskulls in Don't Speak - all they do is scream throughout the whole thing!

With zero tension and zero originality, Don't Speak is actually the perfect recommendation to anyone who has seen it.
