The speculative nature of “A Peaceful Location” sets it apart from many scary films, however the movie’s usage of silence to set the audience’s nerves on edge is just part of what makes it unique. At its heart, “A Peaceful Location” and its follow up, “A Peaceful Location II,” are stories about adult love and household. Yes, there are aliens prowling on the periphery and all sorts of apocalyptic drama to browse, however absolutely nothing is more crucial to moms and dads Evelyn (Emily Blunt) and Lee (John Krasinski) than offering stability for their kids.
And they’re not alone. The scary category has plenty of mother and fathers who would do anything to keep their kids safe. As we wait on “A Peaceful Location 3” (and it’s gonna be a long haul — the motion picture isn’t coming up until 2025!), these 16 films like the initial movie highlight adult commitment.
