So, how does the movie end??
Lee decides to take his son to a nearby waterfall, to show him 'how to survive' (and give the rest of us a heavy-handed clue about 'distracting loud noises'). Meanwhile, Evelyn is at home - doing the washing, when she accidentally exposes a nail on the cellar stairs.
Soon enough, Evelyn's water breaks. She makes her way down to the basement - but steps on the nail, and makes a few noises.
The creatures, who can hear a faint noise from miles away, but not a heartbeat when close up, crash into the house. Evelyn changes the lights surrounding the house to 'red' as a warning, then escapes from the creature and gets to the bathroom, trying her best to be quiet.
Lee and his boy are returning to the house when he sees the red lights, and tells his son to fire rockets in the distance. He runs to the house as the rockets go off - and finds Evelyn alive and well, with a baby boy.
They make it to a sound-proofed lair (a hole in the ground with a mattress on top), and Lee goes back out to find his kids.
Their daughter stops a creature in it's tracks with her new hearing-aid, meets her brother, and they go to the top of a granary tower for safety, but fall inside.
Meanwhile back at the house, there is a major water leak, and the monsters are back.
Lee can only watch as his kids are in an old car, about to be attacked by a monster. He grabs an axe to take it out, but is badly wounded. The creature then jumps onto the car. Lee signs to his daughter that he loves her, and has always loved her, as he shouts. The creature takes him out.
The kids roll the car down a hill, which the monsters don't hear, then get into the house. A monster decides to follow them now, and in the basement Evelyn's daughter finally realises that her hearing-aid is set to a frequency that agitates the monsters.
She turns it up, and holds it to a microphone.
As the monster is going crazy, Evelyn shoots it in the head with a shotgun. They've finally killed one!
They watch the CCTV live feed as the other two monsters are heading towards the house...
...Evelyn reloads the shotgun.
