Think of seeing A Quiet Place at the cinema? Leave your snacks at the door. The film, starring John Krasinski and Emily Blunt, revolves around a series of monsters that hunt sound, whether the crack of a branch, the crunch of leaves – or the rustle of popcorn.
And fear of these creatures has made cinema-goers too afraid to touch their snacks during screenings…

A Quiet Place is the worst movie to eat popcorn during.

A Quiet Place is maybe the most stressed out I've been during a movie in a good while.
Also don't get popcorn during this movie. Trust me.

And even if you’re not bothered about the sound, people around you definitely will be…

But you might have to eat something if you’re close to an empty stomach…
“A quiet place” is a good movie to watch until you decide not to eat your food because you feel like you’re making too much noise so you Start to starve then your stomach growls and the whole theater hears

And it’s going to take a lot of effort to chow down quietly, if so…

If you want to know what it’s like to not breathe for 2 hours, watch #AQuietPlace

Think I can finally risk breathing again after seeing A Quiet Place earlier. Never heard a cinema so quiet. Chillingly brilliant.

And the fear doesn’t stop after the film…
How scary is “A Quiet Place”? Well, while we were leaving the theater a food server dropped a metal tray on the ground. Everyone who had just seen the movie spun around and looked at the noise with genuine terror. Hell of a film @johnkrasinski. #AQuietPlace pic.twitter.com/kIoCoyTKtW
