A Quiet Place

New this month Question: If the waterfall prevents the creatures hearing them, why not live there?

New this month Answer: Building suitable shelter next to a river/waterfall would be next to impossible, and it would be too cold in the winter to rough it.

Question: Why can't they just build a trap to hunt the beasts down?

Answer: Although it's rather vague, the plot premise is that there are hoards of these creatures that have taken over most of the country, if not the entire planet. Trapping the ones that are in the family's vicinity would have little effect overall and no doubt they'd merely be replaced by other creatures.

Answer: We see in the family's basement that the father had gradually been learning about the monsters. He may have planned to trap them at some point in the future, but as it stood, he didn't know enough about their weaknesses. The monsters were shown tearing through a truck and a grain silo like tin foil, so any trap that they would use would have to be extremely strong.

Question: What were the fires for on top of the silos at night?

Answer: The people used it to signal others that they were there. A similar convention has been used in other movies. When the two children were on top of the silo, they noticed the other fires were all gone indicating that the other people out there were no longer alive.
