Birdbox is a thriller, science fiction, drama, and horror type of film starring BD Wong, Colson Baker, Danielle Macdonald, David Dastmalchian, Jacki Weaver, John Malkovich, Lil Rel Howery, Machine Gun Kelly, Parminder Nagra, Rosa Salazar, Sandra Bullock, Sarah Paulson, Taylor Handley, Tom Hollander, Trevante Rhodes. When a mysterious force appears throughout the population, only one thing is certain that if you see it, you die. Now the survivors have to avoid coming face to face with a force that takes the form of their worst fears. Searching for hope and a new beginning, a woman named Mallaroie and her children boy and girl go on a dangerous journey through the woods and down a river to find the one place that could offer them sanctuary. Throughout the entire journey they’ll have to cover their eyes from the evil that chases them.

In an interview with freshman Daniel Fooksman “I did not enjoy the film, because it was extremely predictable and I felt like I knew every scene even just by watching the first 20 minutes of it. He also stated “At certain parts of the story I did jump, because it was somewhat scary.” I asked him who was his favorite character throughout the entire movie and he said “It was Mallorie by far, she was super smart how she figured out a way to kept her and her children alive. At first I despised Douglas since he was mean to everyone and only made things worse, but he ended up getting himself killed to protect Mallorie.” In another interview with Sophomore Perry Elkasby she stated “I liked the movie it stood out compared to any other thriller movies.” She also stated “My favorite character was Charlie he was so adorable and sacrificed himself to save everyone else, when nobody else was willing to.”
In conclusion everybody has a different opinion about this movie some say it was good and interesting and others say it was boring and slow. Most people loved Mallorie who was played by Sandra Bullock and made the best out of a bad situation. I recommend that you watch it and see for yourself.
