Don't Breathe picture

Factual error: When Money puts the bottle in front of the M9 as a homemade silencer, it completely silences the shot. In reality, the shot would not be reduced to the point of silence. Even store bought silencers (actually suppressors) only reduce the noise by approx 25-35Db (gun shots are about 120 Db) Also you would still hear the slide cycle for the next round as any silencer does not affect that.
