Saying there has been a lot of buzz around the movie Bird Box, which Sandra Bullock stars in, would be the greatest understatement of 2019 so far.

Social media has been awash with memes, plot spoilers and criticisms of the movie. Personally, I got roped in because some of the memes were too funny to not want to find out how they relate to the movie. I wanted to be on the inside of the jokes.

Bird Box is a Sci-Fi horror drama flick about an apocalyptic outbreak that is causing people to commit suicide. It revolves around Malorie (Sandra Bullock), who is pregnant when the wave of this strange self-harm-inducing plague first hits the US.

The strange breeze seems to carry images and voices of deceased loved ones, making them so enticing that it makes people want to leave this earth and join them in the after-life.

In a bid to get to safety, Malorie finds herself in a house with Tom (Trevante Rhodes), Douglas (John Malkovich), Felix (Machine Gun Kelly), Charlie (Lil Rel Howery), Greg (BD Wong), Lucy (Rosa Salazar), and Olympia (Danielle Macdonald), who is also pregnant.

If you’ve ever lived with housemates, then you definitely know that having people in close quarters, and sometimes in your personal space, is usually a recipe for some sort of disaster.

There are rules set in the house that are meant to keep them from being exposed to the outside and eventually their deaths, but it seems not everybody wants to follow the rules as stipulated.
