Since its debut in December, the movie Bird Box, starring Sandra Bullock, has become the talk of social media for many reasons.

Streaming site Netflix boasted of the release of the thriller’s 45 million streams in seven days, which made it a record-breaking success for the number-one streaming service, according to

Women went wild when they were introduced to Sandra Bullock’s love interest, Trevante Rhodes, who also starred in Moonlight. The 28-year-old caused quite the stir on social media making him everyone's new favorite #MCM.

You know you have a hit on your hands when the hilarious memes begin to pour in on Twitter:

People expressed what it felt like to walk through the world wearing a blindfold, which later sparked the #BirdBoxChallenge, which caused Netflix to release a statement to tell people to stay safe out here in these streets. 

Now, the house in which the surviving characters were able to lock up and stay safe from evil forces (that you dare not look at) has become a tourist attraction. According to TMZ, the home, located in the suburbs of Monrovia in Los Angeles, has seen at least a handful of people come to the residence every day to take pictures on the stone staircase.

TMZ talked to the owner who said that the people have been very courteous by knocking on the door and asking permission to take pictures on the staircase in the front of the house. The owner also revealed that they were paid $12,000 to allow the movie to feature their home.

If this home looks familiar to you, then you have probably seen it in at least four other movies in the past 20 years. Unfortunately, the owner can’t remember the name of those movies. Our minds are trying to unravel this mystery.

Will you be visiting the house when you’re in LA?
