He did do The Happening which was God-awful and had a similar premise of people randomly killing themselves. Turned out it was the wind.

I'm glad this film did not turn out like that.

Lol, what? At least The Happening revealed the source and didn't pull the old trick of not showing it.

This movie was a direct rip off and it somehow managed to be even more awful. Terrible acting, too many cliches, and the movie focused too much on the house drama, vs the intense first half of The Happening where it was about survival. Literally, every single character in the movie was terrible. The pacing was crap and the writing was atrocious. It felt like an India movie released by YouTubers.

The Happening may have had a bad ending but was a solid movie for the most part. Bird Box is complete garbage and was only made popular by Memes which are also trash.

Sorry if this sounds like a rant, I'm just angered at the fact that most people consider this a good movie. The standards have fallen dramatically and it's sad.

A direct rip off based from a book?

You can bash Bird Box all you want, I get it has its flaws and even I'm not too hot on it. But what I cannot accept is The Happening being labelled a solid movie! Come on, the acting, the story, the ending...rubbish. Remind me, what was the source again?

You are referring to The Happening (widely aka The Crappening), right?

You're right, how anyone could think The Happening is good is beyond comprehensible.

Seriously though, it's OK to have your opinion, it's what these boards are about. I could go on a rant about The Happening but the anger isn't worth it.

The Book is a rip off of the happening.

The Book is a rip off of the happening.

Except this movie doesn't suck as bad as The Happening! That movie blows! Fact!

With the exception to the acting and the ending, The Happening is a good movie. Not only is it original, but it had some great memorable and intense moments like the lawnmower scene. Again, I'm not really saying The Happening is a great movie, just that its much better than this low budget, indie style Netflix garbage.

Wow, Happening over Bird Box...would love to see where your opinion stands in a poll. Mark Wahlberg is so damn cringy in Happening, Bullock runs circles around him. Stupid parts really hurt Happening, running from the wind (lol), Mark talking to a plastic tree (lolol)!

I thought The Happening was pretty good.

The lead actors were bad.
