Pearl specifically mentioned how the insidious nature of the virus infecting people in their homes without being seen was also reminiscent of horror movies.
"The planet right now is like a horror movie... just scared of some invisible thing that could kill you if you go outside. Like a demon... that enters you & no one can help you. But it’s scary & actually real- so it’s more like a nightmare that you can’t wake up from"

@Matulana: "Say that again"
@La_Chelsea1: "We're gonna have to live in those dreams we been having all these years, because reality is giving us the nightmare... Kuzothiwani"
@Lollosangqu_: "Kind of like the movie Birdbox, except we aren’t blindfolded but we have to wear a mask to protect us from contracting or spreading this demon"
