‘A Quite Place’ Shames Snack Eaters
The highly appraise horror film A Quite Place is making it’s mark on the world, with good reviews and healthy box office takings for it’s opening weekend. The film smashed open with a $71M worldwide taking.
However, for a film about mysterious creatures that hunt by sound, cinemas are not the best place to be sat watching a film drenched in intense moments of silence. For a misplaced rustle of a crisps, the crunch of popcorn, or even an ill timed slurp of drink could ruin the experience for everyone.
The film, about a family that lives, isolated and in utter silence, for fear of an unknown threat, is John Krasinski‘s directorial debut, in which he also star alongside his wife, Emily Blunt. Many people took to twitter to share their experience of watching whilst avoiding “snacking” noises. Not an easy task I’m sure!
I loved A Quiet Place. No room full of people has ever been so terrified of chewing popcorn or opening a bottle of water quite like the cinema I went to to watch it. It was paradise to me. It was so quiet that: pic.twitter.com/wPfTiGsuYH

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 🍿 ❌

I am embarrassed about the amount of popcorn I shoveled into my mouth during the waterfall scene in A Quite Place.
An excellent movie.

Just saw The Quiet Place with a theater full of people who would not survive The Quiet Place.

The film was produced by Platinum Dunes, who announced this week that they are shifting away from horror remakes such as Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Friday the 13th and A Nightmare On Elm Street, to concentrate on original films. With a huge box office start, A Quite Place is sure to get a sequel, and maybe even start a brand new film franchise? The era of quite cinemas begins.
