Literally Just A Bunch Of Hilarious 'Bird Box' Tweets

When Malorie hears tweets, she's gonna start swinging.

Right before Christmas, Netflix dropped their original film Bird Box starring Sandra Bullock, Trevante Rhodes, Sarah Paulson, Jacki Weaver, John Malkovich and Danielle Macdonald and it became a pretty unconventional holiday flick.

Based on the 2014 novel by the same name, Bird Box follows Malorie as she and two children (named 'Boy' and 'Girl' respectively) attempt a dangerous journey down a river... blindfolded.

For the last five years, the world has been overtaken by supernatural forces that -- when looked at -- lure victims to kill themselves. The trick is to never take off your blindfold.

While many found themselves gathering as a family to watch Bullock battle invisible evils (a metaphor for spending the holidays with your extended family??) Twitter was also overwhelmed with many hilarious memes.

Here are some of our favourites. Warning: the following will contain spoilers for Bird Box, so if you haven't watched the film yet... put your blindfold on.

Despite it being a pretty good thriller featuring some great twists, the film has been getting the meme treatment, with folks online riffing on all the various aspects of the film. But especially the damn birds.

Some families even decided the best way to spend the holidays was to reenact the frankly terrifying premise of having to escape an unseeable evil.

But ultimately everyone had jokes on jokes on jokes.

Some folks even imagined some cinematic parallels.

While there's a lot (A LOT) of incredible tweets about the film it hasn't entirely escaped criticism. Despite it being rated R, the film's depiction of suicide has been criticised as well as the twist that those with mental illness become evil when exposed to the outside phenomenon. The film currently has a RottenTomatoes rating of 67 percent.

Bird Box is now streaming on Netflix.
