When I read about the new Netflix original Bird Box (2018) which was about entire population committing suicide after seeing mysterious creatures I was skeptical as I don’t enjoy super natural or horror genre, still I watched it through – I was not disappointed neither was I impressed. Sandra Bullock single-handedly carries the entire film and her brilliant acting keeps us engaged. Where the film falls short is that it offers nothing new. It follows…
