Tense Thriller

Bird Box kept me on the edge of my seat unlike any other film this year. Incredible direction and a great cast elevate this concept and give you a great film going experience.

Malerman and screenwriter Eric Heisserer... have served up an inexplicably bland ensemble that even a talented cast can't render interesting.

After such an amazing, awe-inspiring start, it's disappointing this thriller couldn't have thought a little more outside the box.

With hints of "The Road," "A Quiet Place" and any number of zombie movies, this Netflix horror-thriller is appreciably bleak but also sluggish, never fully fleshing out the themes at the story's core.

Bier's direction is coolly efficient, which fits the material to a t - anything more ostentatious would just feel wasteful.

A wannabe shocker with a clever premise that doesn't really get down and dirty or betray the base instincts of a born horror filmmaker.
