The aliens have arrived, and they prove to be carnivorous with a predilection for human flesh - and they are so advanced they don't even have to touch the ground to go human hunting, they just have their shuttles to spy out and teleport them up to their station for them, with technology doing all the dirty work. Only if you're hidden under asbestos you might be able to defy the eye in the sky and live to see another day.

Sarah (Dakota Blue Richards) and Tom's (Jack McMullen) house has been insulated with asbestos, so they managed to survive the initial alien attack (even if it blinded Tom) and now do their best to keep out of the shuttles' sight - which isn't even too hard, as long as one's in the know what to do and what not to ... but then Jude (Karl Davies) turns up and breaks into their home. Now he's easily overcome to be sure, but apparently another group of survivors led by Kathryn (Brigitte Millar) who have turned cannibals have come after him for some blood vengeance, and suddenly Sarah and Tom and in consequence also Jude have to defent their home not only against the alien aggressors but also their fellow survivors, and that fight's not a pretty one ...

 

Now one word of warning: Don't go into The Quiet Hour to have your spirit lifted, despite the somewhat out of place happy ending, this is a depressing movie that's about shattered hope more than anything else - but then again, motion pictures as an art form have always thrived to be more than just simplistic escapism, and dystopia has always been as much an element of science fiction as utopia ... and if that sounds altogether too brain heavy right there, then rest assured, The Quiet Hour is a pretty solid film actually, based on strong storytelling, well fleshed-out characters, a fittingly down-played directorial effort, and a competent cast to top it all off. Again, not a piece of vapid escapism - but something that's worth watching and musing about.
