Trailer for Netflix’s ‘Bird Box’ is Full of Hidden Fear

Published

Bird Box Netflix

With absolutely no fanfare, Netflix just released the first trailer for their film adaptation of Josh Malerman’s post-apocalyptic horror novelBird Box.

As Malerman’s first novel, Bird Box was met with great critical acclaim following its 2014 release. In the book, the sudden appearance of new and mysterious creatures have thrown the world into turmoil. Anyone who sees one of the creatures immediately loses their mind with fear, causing deadly harm to themselves and others. No one knows how many creatures there are, what they look like, or what they are capable of. But they’re everywhere.

The story follows young Malorie (played in the film by Sandra Bullock) as she adapts to this new and horrific world. The story begins just as Malorie finds out she is pregnant and follows her through the years as she prepares her young children to take a dangerous journey into the outside world in search of a safe haven.

Directed by Susanne Bier (Brothers, The Night Manager) from an adapted screenplay by Eric Heisserer (Arrival, Lights Out, The Thing [2011]), the film features a truly impressive cast.

Bird Box stars the aforementioned Sandra Bullock as Malorie as well as Sarah Paulson (American Horror Story), LilRel Howery (Get Out), BD Wong (Jurassic Park, Mr. Robot), Danielle Macdonald (Patti Cake$), Amy Gumenick (Arrow), Trevante Rhodes (Moonlight, The Predator), Jacki Weaver (Silver Linings Playbook, The Voices), David Dastmalchian (Prisoners, Ant-Man), Rosa Salazar (Alita: Battle Angel), and the iconic John Malkovich.

Considering the fact that a major component of the novel is that the characters cannot see what stalks them (to even try would put them at risk of a violent death), it will be interesting to see how that is adjusted for such a visual medium.

Think of it as kind of like A Quiet Place, but for sight instead of sound (though we again should note that rumors of a Bird Box film adaptation have been circulating since 2013 – before the novel had even been published).

As a fan of the book, I will definitely be adding this to my watch list. Check out the trailer below and let us know what you think!

Bird Box will arrive on Netflix on December 21, 2018.

‘The Ring’ Comes to Blu-Ray Steelbook Complete With VHS Slipcase Design

Published

on

Ring

Japan’s entry into J-Horror with Ringu was one of the best that there has ever been. When America decided to do a remake, I can still recall a lot of people being upset that it wouldn’t measure up. However, Gore Verbenski’s dark portrait was nearly a better film than the original. From its ominous start to shocking finish The Ring was effective around every corner. 20 years later folks can still appreciate Verbenski’s film and in order to celebrate the film turning 20 we are getting a cool steelbook blu-ray for the film.

The steelbook comes with an awesome VHS design slipcase. Inside the steelbook is made of static and the iconic scene with Samara and the well.

The synopsis for The Ring goes like this:

It sounds like just another urban legend — a videotape filled with nightmarish images leads to a phone call foretelling the viewer’s death in exactly seven days. Newspaper reporter Rachel Keller (Naomi Watts) is skeptical of the story until four teenagers all die mysteriously exactly one week after watching just such a tape. Allowing her investigative curiosity to get the better of her, Rachel tracks down the video and watches it. Now she has just seven days to unravel the mystery.

Verbinki’s film is genuinely scary and it entirely deserves a 20th anniversary release. It is a film that has managed to stay in the conversation when horror films are being discussed. It still manages to get heavy play during the Halloween season on AMC. Rightfully so.
