The home 20 miles north east of Los Angeles is a 'Bird Box' hotspot
According to TMZ, the owner of the house in Monrovia have been inundated with visitors requesting to take selfies outside.
The home in question is portrayed as a hideout for the film’s central characters who wear blindfolds to protect themselves from seeing evil, suicide-inducing forces.
Fans of the film, which stars Sandra Bullock as a mother trying to keep her children safe in a post-apocalyptic world, have been “polite” when knocking on the homeowners’ door to ask if they can have a photo taken on the property’s front steps while wearing blindfolds, TMZ reports.
The owner told the news site that she was paid $12,000 for the exterior shots of her home, which she says has been featured in at least three other films in the past 20 years.
Some fans even approached the property, which is 20 miles north east of Los Angeles, on Christmas Day.
Meanwhile, Netflix has been forced to issue a warning about the Bird Box challenge. Participants are dared to go about their everyday life blindfolded – albeit minus monsters and perilous river crossings like in the film – and share their antics on social media.
The streaming platform wrote on Twitter this week: “Can’t believe I have to say this, but: PLEASE DO NOT HURT YOURSELVES WITH THIS BIRD BOX CHALLENGE. We don’t know how this started, and we appreciate the love, but Boy and Girl have just one wish for 2019 and it is that you not end up in the hospital due to memes.”
