The script of the film is unique in a way, having very little dialogues but plot consists of lots of dramatic tension in a quiet way. People who went into theaters to watch this film came out not complaining about the film itself but the silence of the film couldn’t let them enjoy munching pop corns.
Many people took social media to share their experience of this quiet horror film, some complaining as they couldn’t eat pop corns while watching as it was too silent in theater their eating sound was too loud.

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 🍿 ❌

@quietplacemovie is FOR REAL. 10/10. See it in a crowded theater, The film leans into silence, and the way an audience automatically falls in line is something to behold. The rules of this world are very clear and every single real world sound feels like a deadly mistake. 👍🏾 pic.twitter.com/A0WBc1n29e

@johnkrasinski From the very beginning of the movie the entire theater audience seemed afraid to even breathe. You immediately brought us into the world of #AQuietPlace. What an experience! Well done, sir!

A Quiet Place is yet ANOTHER terrific piece of horror filmmaking from a (nearly) first time director. Emily Blunt and Millicent Simmonds (as the deaf daughter) give Oscar-worthy performances and the sound design is the best I've heard in years. Go see it NOW! #AQuietPlace
