As of December 28, Netflix says 45 million people have already watched the anticipated Bird Box.  The movie explores the ever so popular idea of the apocalyptic end of the world and is adapted from the novel by Josh Malerman, but you don’t have to read the novel to understand this movie. Watchers will get the full sense of thrill in the opening scene as lead actor, Sandra Bullock vehemently speaks to her children, expressing to them the importance of a sudden, dangerous, and long trip that they are going to endure down a rapid-filled river. Audiences watching will soon understand the importance of Bullock’s character, Mallory’s warning to her children and how important it is that that do not take off their blindfolds.

“We are going on the trip now. It’s going to be rough. If you hear something in the woods, you tell me. If you hear something in the water, you tell me. But under no circumstance are you allowed to take off your blindfold,” Mallory explains.

Mallory is fighting to save her two children and herself in what seems to be an unwinnable battle between a devilish entity that takes the form of people’s worst fears; this causes people to be suicidal because of whatever fears they are made to see. Bird Box is an intense and eerie story that will have you wanting to blindfold your eyes as Bullock’s character screams to the entity, “Please don’t take my children!”

Along with Sandra Bullock, this movie has great actors like Sarah Paulson, Trevante Rhodes (Moonlight), and John Malkovich. Comedian, Lil Rel Howery provides comic relief to the intense thriller and the simple sight of rapper, MGK in the movie causes audiences to laugh.

Now, thanks to the internet, the Bird Box challenge has invaded our timelines and engulfed the internet with hilarious memes and commentary.
