WARNING: This post will contain spoilers for Netflix’s “Bird Box.”

Netflix conquered the internet once again over the holidays, thanks to “Bird Box,” its latest horror movie starring Sandra Bullock.

The movie dropped on the streaming service on December 21, just in time for everyone to consume with their families over the long Christmas weekend. Tis the season for invisible, murderous creatures, right?!

Why Sandra Bullock Had ‘A Lot of Hard, Sad Days’ While Filming Netflix Thriller ‘Bird Box’

After a mysterious and unseen force begins making those who look at it instantly suicidal, Bullock’s character, Malorie, and a ragtag group of survivors do their best to stay alive in this horrific new normal. To avoid falling prey to whatever is killing everyone, they blindfold themselves, with varying degrees of success.

Starring alongside Bullock are Trevante Rhodes, John Malkovich, Jacki Weaver, Danielle Macdonald, Sarah Paulson and child actors Vivien Lyra Blair and Julain Edwards, who are known as simply “Girl” and “Boy” in the film.

As more and more people watched, the memes started building traction on Twitter. Now that you’ve probably seen it too, check out some of the best online reactions so far below!

Chrissy Teigen Had It Rough

Chrissy Teigen and John Legend watched the movie together on Wednesday night and she was certainly affected. In a series of tweets, Teigen revealed she was not only “shaken” by what she had watched, but it also gave her one helluva nightmare.

The Tom Thirst Is Real

Trevante Rhodes was charismatic as hell in the thriller as Tom, another survivor who forms a romantic bond with the pregnant Malorie. He earned major swoon points for later helping her raise both her son and the daughter of Olympia, before sacrificing himself to save them all.

Many of the tweets for Rhodes/Tom were the thirsty kind, though the character also got the LOL treatment for driving over a few “speed bumps” while the group ventured to the store.

Those Damn Kids

Malorie clearly had no patience for “Boy” or “Girl,” waiting to the last moment in the movie to warm up to them and actually give them real names. She was a no-nonsense mom, who treated the two children more like little soldiers than kids.

At the end of the day, however, they are just kids, and kids aren’t great at listening, even in the apocalypse. That fact generated some great memes on Twitter.

Also spawning a few funny tweets was a moment where “Boy” offered to be a lookout for Malorie and “Girl,” something his mom isn’t exactly thrilled about. For a second there, it almost looked like she’d make Olympia’s adorable daughter do the deed instead, before decided against using a looking altogether.

Olympia’s Window Jump

Poor Olympia. The pregnant survivor just wanted to give birth to her baby girl and give her a Disney princess name, but met a much darker fate.

Instead, she foolishly let Gary — a legit crazy person — into the house, before he proceeded to uncover the windows and kill almost all of them. After giving birth, Olympia went headfirst out a second-story window. It was sad, but man, did Twitter have a field day with it.

Everything Else

Because Twitter’s gonna Twitter, here’s everything else that went viral as viewers tweeted out their reactions to the film.

“Bird Box” is streaming now.
