Released online Dec. 21, the film is based on Josh Malerman's novel. It stars Sandra Bullock as a survivor of an apocalypse where people kill themselves after seeing creatures that take the forms of their worst fears. Bullock's character Malorie and others wear blindfolds and depend on the warning chirps of birds to stay alive.

The ensemble includes Sarah Paulson, John Malkovich and Trevante Rhodes.
