TL;DR Netflix's Bird Box was released last week and Twitter is going crazy over it. Tweets below.

The film is set in a post-apocalyptic world where everyone is wearing... blindfolds. When the film begins you don't know why, only that if people take the blindfolds off they may die.

Clearly this film got suspense right, because people on Twitter were shook.

It's definitely the kind of movie you want to watch with a friend by your side because the suspense is real.

Even singer Kehlani took to Twitter to share her reaction to the movie:

It's Internet moments like this that make me so glad "reaction gifs" are a thing.

Many people compared the movie to other suspenseful post-apocalyptic or dystopian shows and movies like The Walking Dead or A Quiet Place.

The film was based on a novel of the same name, released in 2014. Some people thought the adaptation was flawless.

But of course, some people are sticking to the old adage that the book is always better than the movie.

Much of the discussion in the Twitterverse was around Sandra Bullock and her amazing performance.

Overall, the film seems to be a complete hit and everyone who has watched can't help but share how amazing and intense it is.

While the film only has a 65% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, many home viewers are giving much higher praise, including this dude:

Or this guy:

It's clear that the film is more than a slasher or a jump-scare factory. The story seems to have touched a lot of viewers, as well.

Thank god for reaction gifs.

While I'm finding Netflix original TV shows to be going dowhill, this tweet definitely shows that some people are very pleased with the film side of Netflix originals. 

Another great thing about post-apocalyptic stories is the "what if," imagining it happening in our lifetime.

This film is just another addition to Sandra Bullock's long career of versatility. She's hilarious and emotional - what can't she do?

Most Twitter responses to the film are absolute gold:

And here it is. The best for last:
