Five years later, Netflix decided to expand on the success of the horror film with Sandra Bullock by exploring the Bird Box universe in different countries. The Spanish version was brought to life by the Pastor brothers, David and Alex, known for their suspenseful films “Carriers,” “The Last Days,” and “The Occupant.” Mario Casas takes on the lead role in this new film.
The story follows Engineer Sebastian and his daughter Anna as they wander through the desolate, post-apocalyptic Barcelona. Like everywhere else in the world, the city has been struck by an epidemic: people are committing mass suicides after glimpsing mysterious creatures that drive them insane. In addition to the monsters, they face a threat from a cult who believe that confronting fear is vital for humanity.
The film shares a similar atmosphere and a unified universe with the original, but the plots are not directly connected. Thanks to intriguing plot twists, a fresh perspective on the world, a dark atmosphere, and impressive special effects, this new installment is both gripping and captivating to watch.
