I only have one major issue with the movie, and it's such a large plot hole that it just ruins it for me. I think I suspended my disbelief enough where I could see demonic creatures causing mass suicides. But they can't figure out a way to enter a car or building?!?! They can get into someone's head to know their deepest, darkest fear, but can't get through a door?!?!

Rabid fandom for Netflix's smash horror hit "Bird Box" has inspired a new online challenge: People wearing blindfolds, just like Sandra Bullock's character in the horror film.

And many of the fans are also making the pilgrimage to Monrovia - to a house featured in the movie.

You know nothing of the entity, but they are supposed to have no weaknesses in your mind?

Vampires traditionally are extremely powerful, but hurt by simple things like garlic, crosses, and silver. They are immortal, have unbelievable strength and powers yet they cannot enter into a person's home unless invited in. It can be perceived as a silly weakness yet you accept it because that is what nearly every vampire movie depicts.

There wouldn't even be a Bird Box movie if the entity could enter into whatever it wanted because everybody would be dead instantly. If they could open a door, then they could just lift your blindfold off.

Like @OffshoreDrilling said, suspend disbelief.

I accept the vampire deal because it is written in stone and everyone knows it as fact (fictionally speaking of course). If it weren't explained that vampires can't enter a home without an invitation, I would have the same gripe.

It seems like they started with an idea of blindfolds being the only defense against the creatures. But they couldn't come up with a logical way to explain the plot hole, so they just left it to the audience to come to their own conclusion. I don't think most people need to be spoon fed information, but this is kind of the main premise they dance around.

If you start to use logic to analyze horror and sci fi movies you get stuck pretty quick.

I've read that the book ending is much darker. Had they gone with that ending it would be too dark for mass markets.

I'm not sure why everyone says you have to throw any logic out the door because it's a movie.

So if Ethan Hunt gets his head blown off in the next MI, and then it spontaneously grows back...we should be like, "Well, it's just a movie!".

...Because if you start to poke at one aspect of the movie, why not all of it?

I suspend belief for horror and sci fi movies, because it makes the movies that much more interesting. I'm talking more about the premise.

That said, for this movie, the idea they spent 48 hours on the river would have just been as impressive it was just a few hours.

Only a Sith deals in absolutes. I can pick one thing that just seems ridiculous with a movie and still believe other things, it's not all or nothing.

John Malkovich is always entertaining.
Turns out he was right too (his character)
