I remember seeing a theory about how historically many “family curses” were actually mental illness being passed down, I think that’s what this is about, many of them died because delusion or how they see the world

I’d just like to point out that Molly would have had to miss a lot of meals to die of hunger. Just skipping dinner won’t kill you. Also, for the potentially poisonous things she ate, the lethal dose is usually smaller for kids. If anything, everything she ate might have made her really sick, then no one went to help her when she was suffering. Still don’t know if that’d kill you, but y’know.

Calvin theory: his broken leg likely implies he broke it by jumping off swings like he did in the tale, Edie knew he liked doing this, so that’s why she built one in front of a cliff.

Here's a theory about Walter: if you notice, every other Finch's room is related either to their interests or how they died. But while Walter's furniture is based around trains, his room is ocean themed. What if, instead of being hit by a train, he fell off the cliff (where the tracks collapsed) and drowned? And Edie crafted the story to focus on his love for trains instead?

You never mentioned it, but it would definitely explain the shrines to each family member. Did you notice that even the way the shrines where discovered and talked about, they were presented in a way that made them feel more strange with each one you came across.

I mean, going to bed without dinner for ONE night wouldn't have killed Molly; I've fallen asleep without dinner before and I'm still alive. But IS it only one night, or was this a recurring event? If Molly was routinely locked in her room without eating, she could've been very slowly starving due to prolonged malnourishment… If this was the case, then Great-Grandma Edie was even more neglectful than Matpat theorizes here…

Now we wait for matpat to remember that he promised us a franbow theory all those years ago…

Joseph Anderson YT video from like 5 years ago said it best….Edie was the villain of the story, but not because she caused the deaths, but rather because she forced the family to be so comfortable with death, mortality, and the family “curse” that they fail to take basic precautions to ensure their safety….they were all doomed anyway, so why worry about it.

Yes, Edie is a little obsessed with death, but the other deaths can easily be classified as mental illnesses, hallucination from other sources, and unfortunate accidents, the only mysteries are Barbara and Milton, I think the scream Walter heard was when Barbara got her ear cut off, A lot of the comic's story probably came from his interpretation of events, he was just a kid, and fear does a lot to a young child's imagination, including making him afraid of the rest of the world, which is why he isolated himself, the "packages" Edie brought to the basement were probably just cans of food.

personally, i think that Molly’s death was as result of her being sent to bed/ not being allowed to have meals for multiple days or even weeks. i think she had eaten the halloween candy in a last ditch effort to eat something a day or so previously, and when Edie found out she had gotten angry. during the different animals she switches through, it depicts her as being starved, and eating the different things that the animal she is, well is. and i can’t remember the exact line, but at the end after the sea monster climbs under her bed and molly is writing. she says something along the lines of “and i will be delicious” and i think that is alluding to her body literally eating itself from starvation. and all of the story’s she made up are from her starving and trying to trick herself into a happy place

Personally,I always thought the curse was made up as a coping mechanism for all the familial trauma and death, leading to no action being taken to avoid more familial trauma and death. The supposed curse goes all the way back to the original Edith's dad.

Just came to me that edie and edith names are very simular and he might be on to something when he's saying "she was passing the torch" it seems odd to me that its the only charcters who have very simular names so it might be a connection that she was supposed to be the next great grandma Edie

The fact that you represent Edie as an old woman in a suspicious hat, reminiscent of a certain British monarch, is incredibly humorous to me

For my theory about Barbra’s death,

After playing through myself, I think the family suffers from an extremely devastating imagination. The majority of the deaths were related to believing fantasies were reality.

Matt didn't bring it up, but in Lewis's story he says that there was a "wise calico who advised him". When I first heard that, something rubbed me the wrong way. What if the "wise calico" was Edie with Molly's story or her cat ears, and the "advice" she gave him was either going off his meds or encouraging his fantasies, hence pushing him to his death? I seriously think the "wise calico" he mentioned is her.

So, having played through the game again on stream myself, I do definitely think Edie embellished parts of her family's stories for profit. Several of the Finches are definitely unreliable narrators or otherwise seem implausible. But also, doing my own research, the developers have confirmed that Milton Finch is the main central character of their previous game The Unfinished Swan, as without spoiling it, he managed to live to a ripe old age, and implies that whatever it was he found in the house made him decide to go off the grid so his family couldn't find him.

The one thing I noticed is that each generation only has one surviving child left to make the next. Since Edith only had one child, this might break the curse because there are no spare siblings to die. If Christopher only has one child and that child only has one child, most likely no one will have an early death.

Theory: I think Edie made the stories when molly died because molly's death was because of Edie's irresponsibility. She was so sad and guilty. She made the story of a curse to feel better and stuck with it all her life.

The deaths that got to me was Calvin, Milton, Molly, and the baby. Calvin, Molly, and the baby because that was clear neglect. But Milton's disappearance was so obvious why it happened we break into the house so many times from so many entrances. And its so easy a pregnant woman can do it. He could have just been kidnapped.
