It seems John Krasinski and Emily Blunt have taken horror movies to a new level. Not only did the content of their new hit flick A Quiet Place terrify viewers who visited the theater to watch it on the big screen, but the extended periods of silence seemed to pose problems for movie-goers who wanted to enjoy their snacks.

The movie, which Krasinski directed and starred in alongside his wife Blunt, features a family who has to stay silent in order to not alert the monsters residing in their home, who hunt based on sound.

Although the film has received rave reviews from critics and the public alike, many theatergoers have taken to social media to express the struggles they faced while trying to munch on nachos, candy and popcorn in a quiet theater.

Some viewers took to Twitter to mock how sensitive the audience seemed to noises, whereas other people said that even though they bought snacks, they were too self-conscious to actually eat them in the theater.

Even a pregnant Chrissy Teigen went to see the movie with her husband John Legend, joking on Twitter that she was attempting to sneak an entire home-cooked meal into the theater.

So, if the idea of eating in silence makes you uncomfortable, it might be best to skip the snack line altogether.
