Bird Box took Netflix by storm over the holidays.
In the film, Sandra Bullock is one of the survivors of a worldwide phenomenon in which treachurous entities inflict madness upon people who see them.
To survive, she and the others — including two children — blindfold themselves almost all of the time.
She also takes a box of birds small birds with her. The birds alert her when the entities are nearby.
Viewers were haunted by what they saw.
Others were merely perplexed or critical.
And a lot of them were downright thirsty.
Take a look:
1. Let’s start with the Crowned Queen of Twitter
Chrissy Teigen could just as easily have had this nightmare after watching Netflix’s The Dragon Prince, if fan theories are correct, but she makes it very clear that this deeply anxious dream came from Bird Box.
2. She watched the film as a mother
Children in peril can be a powerful motivator for audiences — thoughs some see it as a cheap and manipulative tactic, others see it as a vital component of telling a good suspense story.
3. Chrissy’s no stranger to horror, either
Even devoted horror fans have their weaknesses, and Bird Box got to Chrissy.
4. There’s a lot to process
Sometimes examining a story for what appears to be problems with worldbuilding can be a welcome distraction from absolute terror. For Zelda Williams and John Legend, it’s also just part of consuming media.
5. Movies can stay with you
Clearly, Chrissy is still recovering.
6. But enough about terror; let’s talk about THIRST
Trevante Rhodes played Tom in Bird Box. As a fellow survivor, he and Malorie end up forming a close bond … before he sacrifices himself to save her and her children.
