Here's What the Monsters From 'Bird Box' Were Supposed To Look Like

If you have yet to see Bird Box then congratulations, you're part of a super small group of people.

According to Deadline, the movie was watched by over 26 million Netflix subscribers in its first week.

As much as we love this movie, it definitely left us with a lot of unanswered questions.

A lot of people were saying that "Bird Box" was one of the scariest movies from 2018.


After watching the movie myself, I have to disagree with that statement.

However, it was still a great movie and had some pretty intense and even some scary moments that left me glued to my screen.

The movie also left us with some unanswered questions.


Like, how did Malorie manage to row a boat for nearly two whole days?

I get she was going with the current, but she also managed to not crash into the shore every 30 seconds, which is what I would have done if left in charge.

And I'm not convinced that anyone would be able to decently navigate a moving vehicle, simply by using a GPS and parking sensors.

I get that they're pretty accurate these days, but it would have been way too easy to turn too quickly and drive up onto somebody's lawn.

And of course, everyone wants to know what the monsters looked like.


Or demons, entities... whatever you want to call them.

They never make an appearance in the film, besides those drawings we see. But even then, they're all pretty different looking.

It turns out that there were originally supposed to be monsters that made appearances in the movie.

Special effects artist Andy Bergholtz took to Instagram to share some creations that he had been hired to make for the movie.

He explained that the "fatal vision" each character saw would have been different for everyone.

The designs we're seeing here were intended for Malorie, and they would have appeared in a nightmare sequence.

Because she was pregnant, the goal was for Malorie to envision a "twisted, demonic baby creature", according to Andy.

If that was the vision, he certainly did a great job, these things are freaky!

Even Andy admitted that after seeing the movie, he was glad that they made the decision to not show the creatures.

Personally, I think it's better this way. Sometimes it's best to leave things to the imagination, right?
