Seeing This Scrapped Bird Box Creature Made Me Want a Blindfold

"There was a time when one of the producers was like, "No, you have to see something at some point" and forced me to write essentially a nightmare sequence where Malorie experiences one in that house", he said. It has also inspired countless memes, an incredibly dumb challenge, and probably a spike in blindfold sales. Certainly, it doesn't fit with the tone and narrative framework of Bird Box, so whoever made the decision to nix it made the right call and, frankly, that decision alone may have been the difference in making the movie the mini-pop culture phenom it has become.

If you're looking for an explanation of this psychological spin on an apocalyptic thriller, "Bird Box" was based on the 2014 novel "Bird Box" by Josh Malerman. The Bird Box Challenge.

"That's not really what I believe in". We're talking about 4 million viewers each day only in the USA, in the first ten days.

Meanwhile, after Netflix released viewing numbers that crowned Bird Box as the Netflix Original film with the most total views in its first seven days on the streaming service, Nielsen (the company famous for tracking television viewership) is here to provide its own set of numbers about the film's performance.

Bergholtz's post confirms there was not just one design for what the monsters would look like and instead they would shape shift depending on the character's worst fear.
