    For me the fact the movie was shit was the frustrating thing rather than me not being able to see the monster.

    Can u plz make a “Happy Death Day” theory plz.

  • Kristin and Samantha Leahy

    I wonder what would happen if someone held a mirror to the monster.

    KA0STHEKLOWN Day ago +1

    I think the rapture theory is correct but god sent the demons to make people kill themselves, showing why the pictures are monster like. God probably wants them to kill themselves so their soul can leave their body. That makes your theory fit if you add this, tell me if I got anything wrong. I think everything else you said was right.

    KA0STHEKLOWN Day ago

    I know what the monster is!

    Congrats, you just died.

  • ThisRandomChild :P

    You never see the monster in the movie because when you see the monster you die, and if you die who is supposed to tell everyone else about the movie?

    For those of us who know how HP Lovecraft lore and/or have a friend who doe,s only had to take one good look at the pictures and go like.
    "Oh, that's Cthulhu."
    Because he is the one who turns people mad when they see him after all. The only way to win in a LARP with Cthulhu is by either dying or going insane. Because as soon as he is summoned your sanity drains, and if it all drains you die, and those who live often only have a handful of points left.

    I mean it's basic LARPing stuff, any D&D lover will tell you this.

    I didn't see any immediate comments about this so I'm just gonna say it. Bird Box was a book that came out before A Quiet Place. Bird Box didn't rip it off. A Quiet Place, however, is cinematically better and the concept of having to give up one of your senses in order to survive is beautifully portrayed in it.

    "But you never actually get to see the monster." -- I'm sorry... Let me get this straight... You watched the whole movie and after seeing everything that went down... YOU STILL WANT TO SEE THE MONSTER?!?!?! Do you NOT understand what happens if you see the monster?
    Well if you really want to see the monster, my theory was that it was very similar to this thing.
    I mean think about it. If you look at the monster, you lose...

    I think the monster makes you go mad because it’s so scary you would think of every way it could kill you so to not get killed by it you kill yourself

    In one of the shots in the beginning of the movie when the main character is driving away from the hospital, there is shot on the mountain where you can see a giant spider like figure destroying the houses or whatever. Don’t know if this was included in the video because it just started but I wanted to share anyway

    I might be mistaken, but I think the monsters only repeat memories. Like when they talk to the victim, they say things that have already happened. Liek when it talked too boy and girl, it said what Maloire had said a few times while in the house and under the blanket in the boat, I think the monsters only repeat things that have happened to the person before.

    what if when they look at the monster the monster mimics someone they loved dearly. thats why the children hears mallory, the daughter sees her mom, and mallory hears jessica. but the monster mimics the ones the love dearly to kill them and or hypnotize them to kill themselves because the person would listen to them more than they would listen to a random being. and the being is talking to them telepathically if they could see them

      HELLO I'M A NERD 3 days ago

      God sent Christ to earth so he could teach the non-christians about God. He also, I think, said he was teaching them so they would believe because the believers going up is wonderful, but he said, I think, that he was going to take everybody up. I'm just saying, I totally just said that out of randomness, and didn't even look it up in the bible to see if he actually said that. Oof.
