Bird Box | Official Trailer #2 | Netflix.
In a post-apocalyptic world, Malorie Hayes (Sandra Bullock) advises two young, unnamed children that they will be going downstream on a river in a rowboat. She sternly instructs them to not remove their blindfolds, or else they will die. From this point, the film alternates between two stages of Malorie's story, separated by five years, until they conjoin: her attempt to navigate the river and the events that led to it.
Five years earlier, a pregnant Malorie is visited by her sister, Jessica (Sarah Paulson). A news report is on television about unexplained mass suicides in Romania that are quickly spreading across Europe. Jessica accompanies Malorie to a routine checkup. When leaving the hospital, Malorie sees a woman bashing her head into a glass panel followed by others panicking as chaos erupts. Jessica sees the entity, loses control of herself as she drives, and the car overturns. An injured Malorie then watches Jessica walk into the path of an oncoming truck, killing herself.
Malorie flees on foot, while a woman invites Malorie over to a house for safety even though her husband, Douglas (John Malkovich), disagrees. However, the woman goes into a trance, begins talking to her dead mother, and casually climbs into a burning car. Malorie is rescued and brought into their house by Tom (Trevante Rhodes), a fleeing passerby. While recovering at their base, Charlie (Lil Rel Howery), one of the survivors who seems to have somewhat comprehensive knowledge of what could be happening, theorizes that demonic entities have invaded Earth, taking the form of their victims' worst fears and driving them insane. At Tom's insistence, they cover all the windows, and they blindfold themselves whenever they must venture outside. Later, Greg (BD Wong) volunteers to tie himself to a chair while monitoring the surveillance cameras to see the entity on TV as it approaches but ends up killing himself by rocking his chair violently and slamming his head into a hearthstone after seeing it.
