Like many of you, we loved John Krasinski’s surprise horror hit, A Quiet Place. But the one thing most people were “quiet” about during release was what the monsters looked like.

It was such a secret, in fact, that the week after the movie came out, when I wanted to write an article about the creatures’ gruesome, awesome ears (this article, in fact), photos were not made available. Well, now some time has passed and A Quiet Place is coming to iTunes on June 26, so Paramount is letting us exclusively debut a few images from the Image Gallery on the digital release. They are, of course, of the amazingly designed, horrifying monsters—and we believe this may be the first time any official images of them have been released online.

Those teeth! That exo-skeleton! These are truly terrifying creatures. And yet, I can’t help but call attention, again, to those ears. Holy crap. The translucence, the folds... it looks like a xenomorph fetus is coming out of the Sarlacc Pit on the head of a dragon with Venom’s teeth. Or something.

It’s just an amazing design and all credit to artist Luis Carrasco for the amazing images.

As someone who doesn’t like horror, I still loved this movie. My only complaint is... being able to hear really, really well is such a liability. Why did humans decide “we have to be quiet all the time, forever” instead of “we have to be quiet for an hour while a beeping alarm clock draws the monsters into this pit of fire and spikes we built in the center of town”? The monsters weren’t so much hunters as they were “throw ourselves at the nearest sound.”

I’d be happy with a hand-wavey explanation. “We tried that and it worked for a while, but the rest got smart enough to avoid obvious traps,” etc. Still it bugs me.
