  • I love cuthulih

  • Wait one of the drawings looks like nightmare Freddy

  • 11:26 *_If I was Cthulu and I see a spider, I would still get scared._*

  • What if.. The Camera man accidentally drops the camera while the movie and it faced to the monster.... But IS THERE A MONSTER? or is it just acting that they see a monster (The Suicidal crazy N00b People said that). Oh Nevermind :| Its a FUCKING MOVIE!!OFCOURSE THEY WILL ACT

  • What if there is no monster and the main character is just dreaming the whole thing

  • Can you do a theory on “scary stories to tell in the dark” it’s a movie that’s coming out

  • maybe it's an anti rapture? like people being dragged to hell via being forced to suicide by various demons?

  • I hope I never run into this guy

  • He left out one critical detail. Birds... He did not include the birds into consideration to reach a possible conclusion. The movie was called BIRD box for crying out loud.

  • Nahh it’s just some leaves

  • Monster:just take it off Me:nah Monster: just do it

  • I think the monster is fear its self like how everyone has a fear the bird box monster is someone’s fear so my fear is spiders so if I saw the monster I would see a spider or my true worst fear

  • there is now another QUIET PLACE ripoff called "The silence" on Netflix

  • I fucking love Lovecraft. The Cthulhu Mythos is some of my fav books. I own his entire works. Pricey but 100% worth

  • i love your intro

  • This was the film that m. knight shymalan was trying to make but he created the epic movie fail, "the happening " instead. This could be "The Happening V.2"

  • Just saw the movie yesterday..I think they see the afterlife. And it's so beautiful that they want to go there

  • So blind people can't go to heaven?

  • 7:07 - 7:11 is the best scene ever made

  • Only problem with this theory is the connection to the rapture. In Christianity suicide is a MAJOR sin and leads you straight to hell. There will be no one who commits suicide who would make it into heaven. And since the entity causes people to kill themselves it cant involve the rapture.

  • you missed the point of the birds chirping

  • can you also explain the end

  • I get it. Infinity just can’t handle is too much to process

  • One of the pictures look like nightmare Freddy from fnaf 4

  • charlie's theories are just some quick possible backstories from the writer but have no basis with the original material

  • 11:00 Am I at only one that hears p-orny?

  • But it don't make sense because it makes u kill your self and that is suicide and suicide is a SIN so that can't be but Mabry you are right I am just saying

  • This reminds me of doom day its a religous thing it has 3 parts before doom day comes Part 1:cropses and animals will die and earth will run out and a war will start bettwen evry single country Part 2:a guy with a cross on his face will come to earth and be able to restore earth Part 3:jesus comes to earth kills that guy then god kills all belivers and they go the heavn and the sinners stay basiclly the movie

  • Here’s the thing. The old gods ARE interested. They are well, old... and dead. So cuthulu is trying to revive them all.

  • It's Cthulhu

  • WAIT, those pictures are all different so MAYBE they're all seeing the pure form of they're sin representing living with your mistakes!!!

  • Tbh this is probably one of my theory conclusions sksksk

  • its like in old mytholgies u cant look upon their true form with out going crazy or vaporized like in roman greek and norse mytholgies

  • Cuthulu!! He makes U crazy

  • Ypu cqnr fppl mw ypir hust tryomg tp het mw tp rwmive mw bkindfokd

  • white males in bird box=evil black, chinese people etc=good wow another quality film

  • Quiet place: noise kills you Bird box: sight kills you Film Theory: kills your childhood

  • Lol my name is Lydia!!

  • What if u where blind?

  • No it’s a mental illness thing that’s why they can see the monster.

  • I'm starting to think that the creators of these series where you don't see the monsters they just throw a bunch of stuff at you and let you create your own because they're too lazy

  • To be completely honest I just watch film theory is to find out your reasoning for you saying how spiderman's Mario's father or how voicing computron in titans return was a good idea

  • The monster is moto moto

  • its not christian... not faithful and faithful get seperated true nobody gets left behind

  • In the intro why do you have a blindfold on inside?

  • Maby the thing is drum role IT AKA penny wise or something similar

  • That was scary my name is Isaiah 15:26

  • ffs please i enjoy your videos but your a theorist not a comedian

  • Facts bro you smart

  • its the plants!!!!

  • Maybe it's chfulu (sry 4 bad spelling) Oh wait I didn't watch the whole video

  • SCP-173 has breached containment

  • How do you do it

  • Scp 096

  • It's obviously something

  • Cthulu or an SCP.

  • Me: *open’s eyes* Me: *see’s an iPad with no wifi* Me: tf is that Mom: tf is what? Me: *jumps out of the window*

  • It's ur biggest fear like in the first part her sis says What the hell is that! So I think it's ur biggest fear.

  • Lets be real, the monster is the ender dragon

  • Those gun shots.

  • bro my name is charlie

  • Lmao rapture bullshit xD

  • So will u survive if u r blind


  • what if the monsters are just walking around earth, and their like "Oh cool earth is nice, humans are pretty- HOLY F*CKING SH*T ITS KILLING ITSELF!!!!!" and then to the crazies, "Hey, i think that person might be unable to see with that blindfold, so can you take it off to help them? okay thanks-AHHHH SH*T NOT AGAIN!!!!!!"

  • yknow mabey this is a type of version of liek medusa or somethin idk

  • before watching the video im guessing that its Cthulhu as the tentacle looking things on the face and stuff, as aparantly when you see cuthulu he drives you mad or somehting i dunno now time to watch the video

  • 0:13 to 0:19 dosent that not sound right????

  • I’m not really sure but I’m pretty sure in the movie there wasn’t a monster the people had either seen something great and wanted to make others see it too and people who’s saw something some terrifying they kill them self (before I watched the vid)

  • I S N ' T S U I C I D E A S I N ?

  • What would you do if the Bird Box Crisis happened? I would sub to film theory. But wait I already have

  • I feel that this theory is 90%, but it overlooks on the fact that blind people didn't "go to heaven", if we are to follow the fact that its based on the christian believes, what would that mean? Blind people aren't worthy?

  • I noticed game theory was talking about Cthulhu and he was talking about how a human can't comprehend or handle anything about the Cthulhu which would drive them insane to kill themselves but in "Rick and Morty" the Cthulhu is shown in the intro of the show so why didn't it drive rick and morty or summer mad with insanity ?

  • Bird box ? How about monster box right


  • I'll never watch any movie with that punk ass mark MGK in it. Shows the movie is going to be hot garbage

  • I’m watching this on Easter. We just talked about rapture.

  • starring at cthulu in the eye melts your brain. not make you go insane. hey that rhymes! just dont get in a starring contest with him.

  • Best monster ever horny

  • Do a theory of A:TLA


  • The monster is obviously bully maguire step up your game

  • Lmao at 5:06

  • Nine tailed foxes? SCP-069 has breached containment again... This is for the SCP foundation fans :]]]

  • It's obviously KG-tv rewind 2018

  • Fredy is a pichr

  • Monster thats coming is the Sun

  • Is it me or does he sound like the odd1sout

  • But matpat, nobody saw the bird box monster but *the Vikings did*

  • The monster the monster is T series trying to beat pewds

  • Monster: take off your blind fold Me: No Monster: i have star bucks Me: *rips off blind fold* really!!!! Monster: no Me: sh*t Me: *dies* Monster: *takes out star bucks* Me: *whispers* lier

  • Not trying to get too religious up here, Christianity has been taught in several ways with the same concept of Christ saving all God loving people through being crucified. But, I must say that about the rapture bit from what ive learned and read in the Bible (main religous book for Christians) that even if you broke gods 10 commandments (also in the bible) as long as you believed in him and all that other stuff you have yourself a place in heaven. I don't gor everyone, this is all up for interpretation. It just seems like MatPat just skimmed over why only criminals and the insane were still on Earth without much context. On top of that, does that mean that we're just going to call insanity a crime or crime insanity? Comment on what you guys think.


  • Lol when malorie take off her blindfold she saw a baby It was in instagram tho

  • All other people: What’s the monster in Bird Box? Me: It’s obvious, it’s dEpReSsIoN

  • If your blind and look at the monster will you still commit suicide like kermit?

  • They have a new rip off of the quiet place........ the silence

  • Maybe the “you’re not so bad” is her facing her fear

  • My parents call me ladybug and you use the ladybug to call nothing I feel insulted I’m going to sue the bird box monster now bye

  • The reason they never showed the monster: It was to ugly like me or it didn’t want u to die
