One of the unknowns in the movie who has broken the overview of streaming on the platform Netflix It is the aspect of the monsters that drives people crazy until they commit suicide. And one of the designers answered us.
It is necessary to announce that the following information contains spoilers.
Andy Bergholtz, part of the team responsible for shaping, among other things, the mysterious monsters Bird Box, commented on the portal The Wrap They had several models that could be seen in a cut scene for the final version of the movie. In that we would see the character of Sandra Bullock in the pregnancy stage with a nightmare where I could see how he was one of them. In her case, the shape of the monster would resemble a demonic baby who attacked her, which would be related to her most horrible fear (remember how she expressed her baby).
Director Susanne Bier chose to remove that fragment, and Bergholtz believes that it was a very lucky decision, but with this his work could not be postponed. But in order not to be in doubt, we can see it in his Instagram account.

* Some spoilers in front of BIRD BOX, continue reading at your own risk! * We had the unique pleasure of designing a creepy make-up for the movie, even though the stage ended on the table top. Be aware of the deadly vision that each character would most likely be different for each person (you understand if you've seen the movie), and this makeup appeared in a cut "dream / nightmare sequence" with Sandra Bullock's character. Considering her pregnant state and emotional bow through the movie, the producers felt that Sandra's nightmare would have something to do with a twisted, demonic baby world that is attacking her (there's so much I could gather about the stage of the scene anyway). I sculpted at least 3 or 4 variations on the design before it was approved, which started to be more aggressive, the monstery looks and was revised to be a bit more subtle in the end. I also had the pleasure of painting the finished prosthesis before they were sent and performed by the only Dirk Rogers @thehalloweendirk, used by the great @proutyfx. It's funny, I read an interview recently where Bullock described the creature as a "snake-like, green man with a terrible baby face". Many have wondered what the creature might have looked like, but they can't realize the "snake like green man" part was just Dirk in a spandex green suit? Everything from the neck was meant to be a giant CGI creature / body added later. In the end I really liked the movie and thought it was better not to show makeup. Kudos to the director to put on weapons on one. Still a fun project to be a part of, thank you Howie! @ hoops511 #netflix #birdbox
Definitely these creatures do not look like what we saw in the sketches as one of the characters does. In them, the design is closer to the creatures Lovecraft, which gave rise to fan theories pointing out that the origin of the Bird Box disaster began with the opening of a dimension portal in Russia. Work to H. P. Lovecraft describes that there are beings with so much power that their simple presence affects people physically and mentally; And seeing them would mean, at best, losing their health.
