After attracting more than 45 million views in its first week, curiosity got the best of fans as they became transfixed by the mysterious, never displayed creatures that force survivors of the apocalypse into insanity if seen. The creatures are never actually on screen in the movie, but the visual effects team has finally shared a glimpse of their creation that never made it to the final flick.

The unseen creature from Bird Box created at @knb_efx that was sadly cut from the final film. Andy Bergholtz @andy_bergholtz sculpted and pre-painted the prosthetics. Stephen Prouty @proutyfx went to set and applied the makeup on actor Dirk Rogers @thehalloweendirk. Reposted from the amazing Howard Berger (@hoops511) ''It’s always a bit disappointing when so much effort goes into something that ends up in the cutting room floor, but I get it and it’s always what is best for the final product" @birdboxmovie @netflixfilm @knb_efx — #makeupeffects #sculpture #birdbox
Fans were quick to criticize the baby-like creature, with some Instagram users even writing that “it looks like a soul trapped inside a testicle with cauliflower ear,” “the angry ghost of Benjamin Button,” and “Trump without hair.”
