@Cookie&Choco scp-096 doesn't make people go insane when they look at it. The creatures in bird box are more like eldritch horrors, which can make people go insane by looking because the average human literally cannot handle what they are seeing

I think it's a biblically accurate archangel personally :) Those things were terrifying, took on many horrible forms (one common one being this weird distorted sphere like shape with ring like structures floating around it, wings, and a lot of eyes). This would fulfill the rapture part, as well as the infinity part, because as an angel it should probably be related to some form of infinity, whether that be knowledge, wisdom, just existing everywhere simultaneously even across time and space, etc. I am not religious either, so if I made any inaccuracies on the descriptions or anything pls tell me and I'll fix it.

@Project That is true. I don't think the events in the movie were meant to parallel rapture. More of taking an idea and twisting it. Removing the parts about heaven, God, angels, and only good is only for the believers' part. But taking the idea that people might see images of their loved ones in the sky can be twisted into a monster tempting people. Also, this is just me personally but as someone who believes in God and heaven but not necessarily everything in the bible, the rapture sounds awful. What qualifies a person as a believer? Do they have to be a certain denomination or believe everything in the bible? What about all the good people out there who have a different religion? Atheists? What about uncontacted tribes that never have heard of Christianity? Is there some standard of belief I have to have to go to heaven? It's all very depressing so I tend to believe that people go to heaven, and leave it at that.

I think part of the point of the not showing is to make you super curious and then drive home that curiosity is fatal in such a scenario. By the end I was legitimately wondering if I'd be able to not look. Now, I'm an intensely curious person by nature so results may vary but I wanted to point this out because it's one of the things that sets it apart from A Quiet Place.

Great video as always, I love how much detail you go into. I didn't find the film as intense as A Quiet Place but still a good film. I read the book in one sitting and couldn't pick up another for a week (big deal for a book worm). In the book the claustrophobia and panic of being hunted whilst blindfolded is terrifying. I like the ideas you came up with as the book has never left me, I never got closure as technically we never find out what IT was, your video has helped with that :) Thankyou.

I looove that I haven’t even finished the video and this theory matched my thoughts of Lovecraft. I don’t think it’s Cthulhu itself, but another one of the “ancient ones” because they are all spiritual concepts than cannot be understood by man. ☺️ There’s one monster that can only be reached through the astral plains according to Lovecraft, but it’s on the deepest level and should be avoided by all astral travelers. Apparently the monster lives behind a door (that creaks when open) and installs sends the viewer into insanity.

A little theory of mine: the creature is the physical manifestation of one’s greatest guilt. It may seem like it’s “not so bad” or confusing enough to say “oh my God what the f*ck is that?” but once you finally recognize it, it drives you mad to the point where the only way to stop it is to end your own life.

doubt it. Those guilts already existed in their mind before the monsters, they feel guilty about it, but are living, and try to move on. Just being physical manifestations wouldnt be enough. It would be enough for many people, but not 100% of people, especially mentally strongest ones. It would have to alter their whole perception, to make whatever is tormenting them their only and full reality, one that you cant come back from. Something similar already exists in fantasy universes, Dementors, just way lesser than this. I think its not a stretch to piggy off of dementors and amplify that. I mean, nobody behaved like they normally would, it obviously takes over their mind with more than just visuals.

I know this is a few years old, but it COULD be a shape-shifting spirit that is unable to interact with most objects. You showed 2 clips where what they are saying could be the spirit showing them their fears, and the one where the girl says "you're not so bad" could also mean that she's facing her fear and realizing its not that bad.

I know this video is old, but still. I'd like to propose a different theory. What if instead of the monster being the Great Old One Cthulhu, it's a different elder being from the same mythos, Nyarlathotep. Let's not disregard the other drawings of the creature that were shown. Nyarlathotep is shown as a shapeshifter, so what if the monster was constantly changing? That would explain the different drawings. It would also explain why the monster seems to chase humans. Cthulhu and other higher beings have no regard for humans, as we are below them. However, Nyarlathotep is different in the regard that he takes interest in human beings. But that's just a theory... A COMMENT THEORY! Thanks for reading.. Edit: Wow guys, thanks for the Reddit gold! Seriously though, I'm glad you guys seem to agree with my theory.

I only saw it recently, and the first thing that jumped out to me while seeing the drawing on the table and the behaviour of the creature is that it was Kindred from League of Legends.. If you know Kindred’s lore from League of Legends then you will understand there is a Yin and Yang balance, Lamb and Wolf.. Bird box feels as if Lamb was defeated and Wolf was a lone in the world.. Gamers take that in when you watch the movie again, and you will see Wolf’s behaviour stand out.. Just a theory..

My problem with this movie wasnt 'not seeing the monster', it was all the unanswered questions. Why did it happen, why did it affect only some people? I get pretty annoyed with stuff like that, and it just seems like incredibly lazy writing. Its literally the reason why I stopped watching the walking dead, I enjoyed the first couple seasons a lot, because I thought they were going to be progressing through the story of what happened, how it started, what was going on, and this was quickly abandoned and it just became a literal rinse and repeat of Find refuge->get attacked->Find new refuge->get attacked-Find refuge->get attacked. until I eventually stopped watching somewhere around the neegan part. I was just done and so over it. Thats how a lot of these movies tend to be, and I immensely dislike it. It strikes me as pure lazy writing.

I just watched this movie last week, thinking it was a rip off of A Quiet Place so, sidelining it. But I enjoyed myself more with this movie, despite the story feeling more simple, than with A Quiet Place. I felt the story presented was more coherent in the long run. A nice twist, but a heart breaking one, would have been Tom being pleased with what he saw, and then give chase to Malorie and the children. But the scene where Malorie was juggling with the idea of exposing Girl to the monsters instead of her son, Boy, was litterally gut-wrenching... I would have hated her character if she had done it, but hey, would I do any different if facing the same situation? That hits you right in the feels... And Girl understanding the situation, and resignfully accepting it was more horrific than any monster you could encounter... Bird Box was definitely a very good movie for me. :D :o

Btw when I'm watching it on the mobile I can barely see the monster so to be able to see it be sure you've watch the scene where a guy is sitting in a room with some monitors in his sight. If the monster is nearby the leaves actually starts to float in the mid air and yeah it's probably pretty hard to find but if U watch every corner or watch the full movie a 10x or more as you want you can properly see it

And if they were full blown adults what kind of punishments and fines would they have to serve? Thanks for readin' this! From a loyal theorist!

I have a question about the theory, Mat Pat said that "The dead in Christ shall rise first", and he uses that for people in birdbox hearing the dead. However, at 12:49 of the video he also says that the entity mimics the voice of Mallory who is the protagonist to get her kids to remove their blindfolds. Mallory is not dead though therefor ruing this part of Mat Pats theroy.

The Lovecraftian theory works best. While the great old one does not ascribe any real significance on people's existence, it does notice them from time to time, whether as tools for its own ends or when people start poking their noses into forbidden knowledge, much how we might take more note of mosquitos and roaches, rather than ant and beetles, when they sting or are on something they shouldn't be. Another thing to remember is that the great old ones have tons of smaller "children" that would, like a small human baby, follows a bug around for hours trying to understand it or is just entertained by it, maybe leaving it alone or squashing it. Those are the ones that usually interact with the cult members, and depending on the source material, is evident by the fact that as you work your way up the cult hierarchy, getting closer to the source, the cultist starts to resemble something else... Cthulhu may be striding across the earth, which would explain whole cities succumbing to madness and destruction while one of his kids could be following a trio of insects on a little piece of wood down the river. To address the limited ability to interact, that too is explained in some of HPL's works by the fact that many great old ones use noncorporal methods of communicating to achieve results and rarely if ever actually touch anyone. (At least I can't remember an instance of such in HPL's work) Lastly, there is also the consideration of the alignment of the stars, other cosmic rules and regulations, parallel / multiple dimensions and all sort of mind-blowing science mechanics to consider. I'll add this to the likes of The Mouth of Madness, Event Horizon and The Mist...

If I remember correctly, the people behind it (I’m not sure who exactly) said it actually is a case of seeing your worst fear. The monster is not the same for everyone. For the character Sandra Bullock is playing the monster was supposed to look like some weird baby monster as her worst fear is to become a mother or something like that. Ofc it’s possible they scrapped the entire “your worst fear” idea as they had to cut out the reveal of the monster. 🤷🏼‍♀️

A bit more on the Chinese nine tailed fox: they’re rather known for taking the appearance of extremely beautiful women who seduce men to either 1) inhale their life forces and leave their corpse behind (like sirens but encountered in mountains) or 2) influence powerful men. One famous example in Chinese lore is Daji (妲己), known for a consort to an emperor and manipulating his power. She’s still used as inspiration for a lot of Chinese drama today.

Matpat might have seen the Bird Box monster and that is why he is going overload on this kind of theory about who the entity is in Bird Box.

Can I also say Nyarlathotep from the Cthulhu mythos might also work for the mimicry with the monsters

@Major Music The human-like appearances only where shown in Renaissance paintings. Before, angels where absolutely terrifying. Consider the Cherubim. Renaissance depicts it as a baby with wings. The Bible depicts it as an entity with 4 faces, one of a human, one Ox/cow, one Eagle and one Lion. The wings touched tips as they flew, and they had eyes along the ridges. The common depiction of an angel, was called the Malak and it was second highest, and it was the messenger of God, as Malak is Hebrew for that very name. TLDR: Old Hebrew texts and older versions of the Bible depicted Angels as Many-eyed Abominations.

I mean biblically accurate angels do have an infinite number of eyes, and can manipulate and influence people, so the shoe fits. MatPat explained that the monster is based on Cuthulu that acts in a rapture like scenario, but id like to think its Cuthulu and a Biblically accurate angel combined together, and multiple of them.

You missed one image. The left drawing in the time stamp 17:41 looks a lot like a monster. Just thought I would put that out there. P.S it looks a lot like Cthulhu.

Speaking of H.P Lovecraft monsters maybe being a source of inspiration for the monster in Bird Box, does anyone else see a connection between this movie an Pickman's Model, also written by Lovecraft. The premise of looking at something an "going mad" is shared in both stories. It doesn't actually give us a clue to what the monster is in Bird Box, but I find it interesting that there are so many things in this film that could be a reference to Lovecraft's work.

Theory for the birds getting agitated when there's the monster nearby: "There are so many reason why they chirp; calls for food, *to warn others*, 'contact calls' to locate their mate or friends. If they are warning others, it could suggest that they can understand the danger. "Generally speaking, birds hate strong smells, *shiny objects*, and predators" The Brightness of Cthulhu's infinity could be distressing the birds, or the brightness of the rapture, supposedly looking at the sun. Hey, but that's just a theory, a I-am-going-to-copy-matpat theory!

@Babyradar01 honestly a movie about a rampaging 096 just tearing through a city where the news inadvertently showed almost the whole population 096s face. And the foundation scrambling (no pun intended) to try and terminate it. Containment is no longer a possibility. And ultimately God ole peanut and 682 are used to bring it down long enough for the foundation to come in and pump acid into it's broken bones thanks to 173. And then a scene where they recontain 682 and then amnestisise the entire world.

From the moment the pics were shown I knew it was some eldritch abomination. And it's an interesting thing to add the rapture themes! (Just pretty opposite to actual Christian beliefs with the whole mass suicides) An entity so uncomprehensible that it drives you mad to the point of rapture-like behavior... that's a cool thing! But jokes on it! I've been training for months for this day! I go to sleep at 2-3 am every night, on a shared bedroom! No light on because I'd be waking everyone up, so go upstairs, get changed and into the bed, all in the dark! I have no such weakness as needing to see! >:D

Cthulhu can mimic the voices of the dead. There’s actually a game called The Shore that was heavily inspired by H.P. Lovecraft’s Call of Cthulhu. In the game, you actually hear the voice of your dead daughter, but there’s no one else on the island. Cthulhu is responsible for the auditory hallucination.

I think the reason why the blind people aren't targeted(if this is the ctthulhu and other entities like it) is because they can't see it. If you see it, you are driven insane because your mind can't process it. Blind people don't have to worry about that because they can't see in general, so they're safe.
