Bird Box is a movie that premiered on Netflix in December of 2018. It is a dramatic thriller directed by Susanne Bier. The story opens with a mysterious plague that makes the individual end their own life. Viewers eventually learn that this is some sort of creature that you cannot look at, hence the blindfolds.

‘Bird Box’ tells the terrifying adventure of Malorie, and how she fights to survive this evil presence. This is one of the driving forces that captures the audience’s attention. The mystery draws in viewers, and eventually, this movie went viral. Over Christmas break, everybody seemed to be talking about this movie and sharing thoughts about it. The story is original and intriguing which are definitely two factors that determined this movie’s popularity. Almost everyone who has seen ‘Bird Box’ recommends this film to others.

This film is not without controversy. One topic of concern is a particularly violent and chaotic scene, in which Netflix included footage of a real life event, an train derailment in Quebec. This horrific event killed 47 people due to the explosion of the derailed train which was carrying oil. Many people thought using this footage in a work of fiction was disrespectful and inconsiderate. Netflix has since then apologized but the footage remains in the movie.
