Moviegoers are losing it over people making noise during A Quiet Place
A Quiet Place opened last weekend to rave reviews and a whopper box office, but if you're planning on going to see it there's something you should bear in mind.
**WARNING: MILD SPOILERS**
Written and directed by John Krasinski and starring himself and his lovely wife Emily Blunt, it is set in a world where alien monsters have invaded earth and if you make a noise they'll hunt you and eat you.
John and Emily and their kids are living in this tense environment so it's not spoiling anything to say that while we're in their company, things are quiet.
Things are, in fact, silent, and this is something viewers should know before stocking up on crackly packs of crisps, crunchy tortillas, popcorn etc.
Many people cannot tolerate movie theatres at the best of times thanks to loud eaters, heavy breathers, and paper cracklers (the worst), but when the movie is so quiet you can hear a pin drop, these traits are intolerable to even the most tolerant.
Unfortunately, the warnings come too late for some irked movie-goers who took to Twitter to share their fury. Others tried to share their wisdom, earned the hard way...
A heads up - if you go and see ‘A quiet place’ at the cinema, don’t buy any snacks. I managed about 3 kernels of popcorn throughout 🍿 ❌— Jack (@jackmcnn) April 5, 2018
Just saw A Quiet Place and someone was eating doritos loud enough that they 100% would have died in the fictional universe— crybaby (@jacobasnow) April 14, 2018
Lemme make this very clear.— chief🐝 (@TheRanDank) April 7, 2018
If you go see A Quiet Place, hell if you see any movie, please shut the fuck up. Turn ya goddamn phone off, stop shoving your face full of loud ass foods(popcorn, anything with a rapper, etc), quit talking and watch the goddamn movie.
Thanks that’s all
Do me a favor: if you go to see A Quiet Place (a movie thats literally so quiet you can hear the whole audience breathing) DO NOT EAT POPCORN TWO SEATS AWAY FROM ME AND WHEEZE THROUGHOUT THE ENTIRE RUN TIME— Pepé Silvia (@HunterrReece) April 11, 2018

So we can add grapes and Jaffa cakes to the list of foods that are surprisingly too loud to eat during #AQuietPlace. Also, remember to breathe folks; I maybe realised I wasn't at several points. @quietplacemovie— shedrinkscoffee (@shedrinkscoffee) April 15, 2018
Don’t watch “A Quiet Place” in theaters that serve food and what not. Dude behind you with the extra loud kale salad is going to ruin the experience— T’Chiclet (@TJMFCOMBO) April 14, 2018
