    Has anyone else seen this?

    I thought it was an effective scare-fest, with an interesting gimmick requiring the characters to remain totally silent at all times (the alien invaders are blind and hunt by sound) so the slightest noise makes the audience jump. It also effectively builds suspense by not showing the monsters until halfway through the movie.

    On the other hand, there are huge plot holes-- if nearly the entire population of the earth is dead by the time the movie starts, why are the aliens still here and what are they surviving on?

    A fun way to spend an hour and a half, but nothing very profound.
