Warning: This post contains spoilers for Bird Box.
Since the movie premiered on the streaming service on December 21, viewers have been swarming the Sandra Bullock scarefest. Whether it’s because everyone was at a loss for things to do during the holiday season, or they saw the buzz growing on social media, they pressed play—to the tune of over 45 million member accounts watching Bird Box in the first week, breaking a Netflix record for original films.
Just as watching Bird Box became a must-do over the holidays, so did making memes about it to share with Twitter. The social media site was inundated with gags about the film, which details what happens after mysterious entities invade the earth and make people kill themselves; the only way to avoid seeing the creatures is to wear a blindfold. Bullock plays Malorie, a mother trying to protect her family in the midst of the terror.
This very visual conceit, plus several of the movie’s signature motifs and most shocking developments, inspired fans to share their feelings online. Here are the best memes about Bird Box.
