The film, which stars Sandra Bullock, Trevonte Rhodes, John Malkovich, and Danielle Macdonald is about an invisible entity that makes people hallucinate and leads them to commit suicide. It's making me laugh.

"It was a green man with a horrific baby face."

According to screenwriter Eric Heisserer, the monsters were nearly shown on screen, but the decision was ultimately made to exclude them.

"Does Susanne Bier's agent use this data as leverage on her next film?"

In the film, the world has been infiltrated by unseen monsters which, when witnessed by humans, drive individuals "crazy", often resulting in self-harm.

Giving people a rare peek behind the curtain, even a flattering one, will only renew calls for greater transparency by journalists who report on the service and those who do business with it. "Whatever those beings are, they tap into your deepest fear". The only people who are safe from these fatal consequences are those who wear blindfolds while in the company of the creatures and those who are already "mentally ill", as those people instead act as agents of the beasts, infiltrating groups of survivors in order to expose them to the otherworldly horrors. "So it would have been the wrong decision", she said.

Kylian Mbappé, quatrième personnalité préférée des Français

Bier explained the thought process behind the all-in directorial choice, noting that Netflix doesn't "have any inhibitions at all" when it comes to such shocking sights and that the Bird Box team wanted everything to feel as real as possible without being unnecessarily gory. But not so that would become the essence of it.

But some birds can talk, and they might actually have something to say about a scary movie that relies so heavily on their flighty sixth sense for danger.

What do you guys think?

The film's team did, in fact, shoot a now-deleted scene that showed the monsters, but upon viewing it, they deemed it to be unnecessary.
