In A Quiet Place, monsters roam a post-apocalyptic world and hunt anything that makes even the quietest sound. Costars Emily Blunt and John Krasinski, who are married in real life, must raise their two children in complete silence while preparing for the birth of a third. While the thriller has a 97% certified fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes, almost every person who sees the movie leaves the theater wondering about a major plot hole: What about loud farts? Can't the monsters hear it when the characters toot a little too brazenly?

‘you fart, you die’
I legit thought about this at LENGTH on the bus ride home. The poor person who didn't know and cooked a curry, only to be attacked later that night. How they all must go about this part of their lives now. Gosh. So much.— Daniel J. Layton (@DanielJLayton) April 5, 2018
It's hard enough not to fart while watching the movie. Imagine living in a world where a fart is literally deadly.
someone’s going to fart really loudly at the theater during A QUIET PLACE and it’s going to be great— Saladin Ahmed (@saladinahmed) March 25, 2018
There's probably a scene about farts that didn't make the final cut.

INT. HOUSE - NIGHT
JOHN KRASINSKI: *signs "Don't do this."*
ME: *signs "I have to."*
JK: *signs "We will die if you do. I am begging you."*
ME: *signs "I can't hold it any longer."*
JK: *signs "You stupid motherf-"*
ME: *FARTS VERY LOUDLY*
Some fans are actually leaning into the farts. They wish A Quiet Place had more farts...
A Quiet Place would have been better if the aliens were only attracted by farts and it was called Silent But Deadly— Tony Tulathimutte (@tonytula) April 8, 2018
Other fans are reaching out to director John Krasinski to see if he'll provide some answers.
One Twitter user made a humble request of the internet.
In a rare moment of generosity, the internet granted his request!
A Quiet Place is currently #1 at the box office, grossing around $50 million on opening weekend. Congratulations to the entire cast and crew on the success, but we can't help but think the movie might be doing even better if these fart questions were addressed. Just something to think about.
