Susanne Bier directs Sandra Bullock, Trevante Rhodes and John Malkovich in this apocalyptic sci-fi where a viral force possesses people into killing themselves once seen.
I avoided this brief sensation when it seemed to merely exist to inspire memes and rip off A Quiet Place. It actually works quite well as the dwindling ensemble bicker and make bad decisions in light of a supernatural extinction. Nothing particularly original happens but the early set pieces are tight and the burgeoning romance between Bullock and Rhodes is convincing. They told me not to look, but it was an entertaining enough watch. The ending is a little too underwhelming though.
