#4 Bird Box
Is it just us or was 2018 the year of post-apocalypse-themed movies? We set our expectations high for “Bird Box”, because let’s be honest, when has Sandra Bullock ever disappointed?
Set in a gloomy world wherein your sight could kill you, Malorie Hayes (Sandra Bullock) and her two children fight the unseen evil in order to find the elusive safe haven down a long and winding stream. We’ve got to hand it to Netflix, this is the first horror movie that was able to frighten us without even showing creepy visuals. You could simply sense that fictional evil presence radiating from the screen. Bravo! We were so worried for Malorie and those precious little babies the entire time!
Okay, but now it’s time to get to the point; the ending. The conclusion of the movie was okay, but it still left a bitter taste on our cinema palates. We hate it when a film doesn’t have an actual solution at the end. Are they just supposed to hide in that sanctuary forever? Will the evil never find them there? Who’s going to go out to get food? Oh, well, at least the birds in the box that they were carrying survived too.
