The man suffering from paranoia opens a hotel for overnight guests. However, any girl who stays there would become the prey for the perverted killer.

Released in 1960, the movie caused a panic in theaters. The audience had no idea what they were watching until the horrible scenes appeared. Consequently, many people had to flee the theater. The film also haunts actress Janet Leigh for a long time. After playing being stabbed while taking a classic shower in Psycho, she no longer dares to take a shower in real life.

As an outstanding name among the most haunted movies in Hollywood, the film is made from a different perspective. In detail, the nightmare here does not come directly from the creepy ghosts but belongs to a family secret. The kind of poignancy it gives is the usual entertaining one we experience.

True to its name, A Quiet Place is about a land where everyone must keep themselves as quiet as possible. A single sound or a small breath could make you prey of the creatures. If you want to enjoy this movie, be prepared to strain your eyes and hold your breath to watch every smallest move of the main character's family.

The movie definitely deserves to be among the most haunted movies in Hollywood.
