BIRD BOX is a US fantasy thriller, set in a post-apocalyptic world, in which a woman and two young children must make a dangerous journey while blindfolded.

Violence

Scenes of bloody violence include a brutal stabbing, multiple shootings and an attack with a machete.

Threat

People, including young children, are stalked and chased by fantastical creatures, the sight of which causes the witnesses to kill themselves. Other scenes show people being attacked by crazed survivors.

Language

There is strong language ('f**k', 'motherf**ker'). Milder terms include 'prick', 'asshole', 'shit' and 'bullshit'.

Suicide

Multiple scenes show people being supernaturally compelled to kill themselves, resulting in strong bloody detail.

Infrequent moderate sex references include brief sight of a naked couple embracing. There is also a short sequence of drug misuse.
