A Quiet Place: Final trailer teases terrifying hidden monsters

John Krasinski's role as Jim Halpert in The Office may not have scared you, but his performance as the head of a family in danger of being killed by hordes of mysterious demons in A Quiet Place will definitely send a shiver down your spine. 

Paramount Pictures has unveiled the final trailer for A Quiet Place, Krasinski's first directorial effort for a major studio, that gives us one last tease of the terrifying monsters that lurk within the silence and delves deeper into the scare-sweat-inducing premise of the post-apocalyptic horror film. 

The clip opens on the Abbott family — Krasinski as father Lee, Emily Blunt (Krasinski's off-screen wife) as mother Evelyn, Millicent Simmonds (Wonderstruck) as daughter Regan, and Noah Jupe (Suburbicon) as son Marcus — learning of a "massive invasion" that has caused "total devastation" across the world. 

"We have to protect them," Evelyn tells Lee, a statement that becomes even more poignant in the next shot: Evelyn runs a stethoscope across her pregnant belly in an attempt to hear the heartbeat of her unborn child. Lee promises to keep the family safe, but is immediately shown traipsing (albeit carefully) through the woods with Marcus. 

On their journey, the father-son duo spot an elderly man who's clearly lost, disoriented, and, most worryingly, unaware that if anyone makes a sound where they are, horrifying creatures will materialize to hunt and kill them. The man lets out a loud scream, even though Lee places a finger to his lips and warns him not to let a single peep slip. A bony, seemingly hairless, deer-like monster then jumps through the trees and tackles him. 

Two additional shots of the demons appear later in the trailer. One comes when Evelyn is watching what appears to be footage captured from a night-vision camera, and the other arrives seconds later, when a monster pops up behind Regan. 

Take a look (and try not to get too frightened) in the video above. 

Co-written by Krasinski and produced by Transformers franchise creative Michael BayA Quiet Place opened to rave reviews at the South by Southwest Film Festival last month. The film will arrive in theaters on April 6.
