In a terrifying, horrific, kind of way.
And no, the movie ISN’T about a bird box, but it does feature birds in a box …
It stars the phenomenal Sandra Bullock as the lead role, as well as Danielle Macdonald (Dumplin’), Sarah Paulson (American Horror Story), and John Malkovich (what isn’t he in!?) in supporting roles.
Basically it’s about a world where an entity comes and causes everyone to see their worst fears, which results in the person killing themselves. So everyone has to learn to survive without looking outside.
And if they do go outside, they have to be blind folded.
What further complicates things is that the lead character (Sandra Bullock) has to look after two children.
I can barely get my kids to listen to me under normal circumstances, let alone in a situation where they’re actively not allowed to do something.
If that was me in that situation, my kids and I would be dead because we all know it’s impossible for them to listen.
It’s thrilling from beginning to end, and I would watch it again because I’m sure I missed bits and pieces.
If you haven’t seen it, then I highly recommend watching it, or at least adding it to the “My List” section on Netflix.

The movie is based on a book. Also called Bird Box, by Josh Malerman. I’ve heard the book is good but I haven’t read it.
Have you seen Bird Box yet? What do you think?
