Looks like the horrors of 2018 are far from over, as one of Netflix’s latest offering, Bird Box has people covering their eyes, literally. Starring Sandra Bullock in the lead, the movie is a post-apocalyptic thriller, based on a novel of the same name by Josh Malerman.
While a lot of people have called it the scariest movie, the ending definitely opened the floor to unanswered questions, possible theories, and of course, potential memes. And like always, the Twitterati did not disappoint.
#BirdBox Twitter review: The film is mediocre in its execution & characters are only there to serve as fodder for the unseen horror but if there’s a reason to watch it is for Sandra Bullock’s strong performance. It’s too bad the rest of the film isn’t able to reach her level. pic.twitter.com/dpLUZ2yEj5— Film Frackers (@filmfrackers) December 30, 2018

Bird Box ReviewA great ensemble cast with great performances and an even greater lead. It had some lulls in it for me but, had a great concept and a good ending.#birdbox— Andrew Suiter (@TheOgDrew) December 30, 2018
Movie review: Bird Box, 2/10. I am probably the only person on Earth who did not like this film. It was extremely unoriginal, awful story development, and terrible acting. It was only made because this genre is popular at the moment. Waste of time.@netflix #BirdBox #MovieReviews— Griffith Johnson (@griffithxjonson) December 30, 2018
Remember when M. Night Shyamalan came out with The Happening and no one liked it? Well I liked it!! So yeah don’t mind me if I scoff or roll my eyes at all the rave reviews for #BirdBox because it’s so obvious that M. Night did it first! pic.twitter.com/q7TXrVdNx5— Oh, honestly Jan!

Finally watched #BirdBox after all of the raving reviews — and it was good. Terrifyingly creepy, but pretty great storyline. Also, John Malkovich nailed it.— Madeline Schmitt (@madelinedenise) December 30, 2018

You ever read a review for a movie that is adapted from a book, and the writer seems to be completely oblivious to the fact that a book version ever existed? That’s how I feel reading any review for #BirdBox— Ellie Sloth (@SpectacledSloth) December 30, 2018
Clearly, there is nothing scarier than a Twitter review.
