A Horror Flick That Will Make You Crave Pizza

A Quiet Place: Day One
Paramount Pictures (2024)
This is the third movie in what has become one of the most creative and entertaining horror franchise of the 21st century, and it did not disappoint.  Lupita Nyong'o delivered an incredible performance as a woman living in New York City who is in the final stages of terminal cancer.  She leaves hospice care to go into the city on the day that the aliens who have taken over the planet in A Quiet Place first arrive on Earth.

I'd recommend this to anyone who has even a slight interest in horror or suspense.  The story is told in such a way that you don't have to watch the first two movies in the series to understand and enjoy the prequel, and it's told well.  The only thing you really have to know going into this movie is that if you haven't eaten dinner before you walk into the theater, you're going to be tempted to go on a pizza run on your way home.
