Film Bird Box is directed by Danish filmmaker Susanne Bier. It tells the horrific tale of a reluctant mother who must fight to save her children from invisible monsters in a post-apocalyptic world. As, anyone who sees the monsters is compelled to commit suicide. Therefore, one must wear a blind fold to survive.
Interestingly, this film is being compared to M Night Shyamalan’s 2008 film, The Happening, and John Krasinski’s recent critically acclaimed horror flick, A Quiet Place.
Though Netflix say the film has passed 45 million views, but each Netflix account can accommodate 5 viewers. Which means the number could increase, keeping in that those 45 million accounts could have 5 time each more views!
