Kind of a The Happening meets A Quiet Place, but better than the latter and way better than the former. Maybe I didn't get eeeeeeverything I wanted out of Bird Box but I'm still on board. I know that I opened this up by saying the movie is very much like two other movies, but what I liked most about is honestly that it's unlike 99.99% of the horror genre, and that little variation was just what I needed today.
Final rating:★★★½ - I really liked it. Would strongly recommend you give it your time.
A mass epidemic strikes Earth which makes people go crazy and commit suicide, but only IF they are not blindfolded and SEE the mysterious phenomena. A group of Californians find succor in an abode with covered windows. One woman (Sandra Bullock) and two children try to make it down a remote river to find sanctuary, blindfolded. Trevante Rhodes and John Malkovich costar.
“Bird Box” (2018) is a post-apocalyptic survival adventure/horror with an original concept and elements of flicks like “The Book of Eli” (2010), “The Mist” (2007), “Carriers” (... read the rest.
Decent watch, might watch again, and can recommend, at least as a one-off.

As most of the movie takes place inside a single house, they manage to keep things interest... read the rest.
