The Netflix Original That Everyone Is Buzzing About

“Bird Box” has given us a lot in the short time it’s been out. People have dubbed it ‘terrifying’, while others have struggled to keep themselves together to see if there’s a feel-good ending… and the memes!

Now, Netflix has announced that psychological horror has been watched by 45 million accounts. Not only have millions watched the new Netflix original, but it is all social media can talk about with meme, parodies, and GIFs galore.

The Netflix original has broken all records on the platform in its first week of streaming, according to the Mirror. Many have praised the performance of Sandra Bullock, who plays a mother experiencing the inevitable difficulties of living in a post-apocalyptic world.

After Netflix tweeted the figure, people responded with many putting its success down to the lead. One said: “Sandra Bullock definitely sold the hell out of this,” with another adding: “Well deserved. It was a great mystery, action, adventure, drama. And Sandra Bullock is AMAZING!”

Others weren’t as positive about the movie, with someone commenting: “Or how many simply watched three mins of it, got bored and turned it off? Does that still count as a view?”

Regardless of the negative comments, Netflix must be pretty chuffed with the success of “Bird Box” – they wouldn’t have tweeted the figures out for a start…

The general gist of the film is that supernatural entities take the appearance of their victims’ worst fears, regrets, and losses, pushing victims to end their own life. The film’s synopsis explains: “When a mysterious force decimates the world’s population, only one thing is certain: if you see it, you take your life.”

With that in mind – a group of survivors, including Bullock and her kids, decide to cover all windows in the house and blindfold themselves whenever they must venture outside.
