A Quiet Place

New this month Factual error: The son's death happened in 2020 and it was day 89. On day 473, the mother writes in the calendar and it's Wednesday 3 October. So, the year must be 2021. But 3 October 2021 is not a Wednesday, but rather a Sunday.

Factual error: Grain engulfment is not depicted in a scientific manner. It is not possible for engulfment to happen without a valve being opened at the base - which has not been shown in the movie when the boy falls in the grain storage. It is very unlikely that two engulfments will happen so close by in the same storage - if so, they will converge quickly. But, the movie shows both victims help each other one by one. They succeed in 5-10 seconds. Engulfment become entrapment in less than 20 seconds and require more than thrice the body weight to pull some one out (unlike one kid being able to pull other one out while both are on the grain). Finally, they both sit on the door and avoid entrapment.

Factual error: Emily Blunt takes her blood pressure manually, pumping up a cuff but not listening to her pulse with a stethoscope to get the reading. Not possible without a new style automatic BP machine which would have made noise.

Suggested correction: This is simply not true. The style of BP monitor that she uses is the way all BP monitors used to work.

The way you use a manual BP cuff is by listening to your pulse with a stethoscope while you pressurize the cuff. Your top number is the pressure you hear your pulse stop, and the bottom number is the pressure where you hear it pick up again.

Suggested correction: It is possible to read the pressure by such a machine as shown in the movie after some practice. The needle or the indicating hand slightly skips when it reaches the read pressure range.

That's inaccurate. The pressure at which the gauge jumps is often different than the pressure at which the first Korsakoff sound is heard.
