Everyone is terrified to eat popcorn during ‘A Quiet Place’
Keep your popcorn, and your Whoppers, and your crunchy-as-hell nachos out of the movie theater this weekend. Please.
John Krasinski’s thriller A Quiet Place debuted Friday and has stunned movie goers into stomach-grumbling silence. The film’s plot (no spoilers) revolves around a young family’s effort to survive in a world taken over by sound-sensitive monsters who hunt by noise.
The storyline means much of the film is nerve-wrackingly silent, amplifying every real-life sound. That has left every person who ordered theater food terrified that a monster is going to rip their face off. And left every person sitting next to someone chomping on popcorn very annoyed.
anytime I tried biting into my reese’s pieces while watching A Quiet Place I felt like I was risking the safety of the theater

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.

The scariest thing to me about A QUIET PLACE is how loud the popcorn eating is going to be in the theater while everyone on screen is being quiet.

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

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

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 🍿 ❌

‘A Quiet Place’ sounds like absolute horror.
A movie so silent you can hear everyone in the theatre eating their snacks.

If you watch A Quiet Place, don’t bring food. I had to strategically eat my hot dog. Don’t even bother with pretzels.

Listen, I get it, movie popcorn drenched in butter is a gift from the saturated fat heavens. And a giant box of Junior Mints tastes better in the theater. I KNOW. But please for all of us, just go to Chili’s or something after.
