What Is the ‘Bird Box’ Challenge & Why Does Netflix Advise Against It?

Over the holidays, Netflix had yet another viral hit with the Sandra Bullock-starring original film Bird Box. Likened to 2018’s hit thriller A Quiet Place, the movie follows Bullock’s character Malorie as she tries to evade an evil entity.

The catch? Anyone who looks at the entity (which viewers never see) becomes infected and either commits suicide or forces others to look at the entity by removing their blindfolds. Throughout the film, viewers follow Malorie on her harrowing, blindfolded journey down the river with two young children named Boy (Julian Edwards) and Girl (Vivien Lyra Blair).
