Netflix is continuing its horror run with a terrifying new Sandra Bullock film. Bird Box, which arrives on the streaming platform on December 21st, follows a mother’s fight for her family’s survival in a post-apocalyptic world overridden by a mysterious monster.
Similar to A Quiet Place, Bird Box revolves around a sense: sight. In the trailer, it’s revealed that the monster preys on its victims’ fears, manifesting itself into the worst nightmares of anyone who sees it. Bullock plays Malorie, a mother seeking refuge with a group of survivors in a boarded-up house. However, it appears the house isn’t safe for long, and we watch as she and her two young children embark on a dangerous, sightless journey in the hopes of finding safety.
“Listen to me. We’re 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,” Malorie tells her kids.
The movie also stars Sarah Paulson, Trevante Rhodes, Lil Rel Howery, Jacki Weaver, and John Malkovich.
Bird Box is the latest addition to Netflix’s growing horror collection, which includes recent movies like Cargo and Apostle. Meanwhile, the streaming platform is also currently enjoying the success of its breakout horror series The Haunting of Hill House.
We can’t wait to watch (and be frightened by) Bird Box on December 21st.
