To be honest the reason they probably made the monsters form not seen because that would make the scary affect of the movie Less scary What’s the fun in a movie without conspiracies?

The movie just made my brain rip Apart..Why couldn’t the movie start off like “ There was scientist doing some experiment and he or see dropped a bottle that Holds the ceature and it escapes. Skipping through when everyone dies except the kids and the mother (I forgot the name) She looks around in a library and finds a book that tell about the creature but still had to get away from them..

I think Huli -jing is more suitable here because he can make ppl see dead, make an alternative mindset where people will think that ugly isn't ugly actually It's no so bad " just like Olympia describe. On top of he could change it forms technically, it's voice too . and this could be seen in the last part of the movie where Olivia and the child were being called by dead people . About he not passing through walls or going inside the house, as u said these creatures might not be interested to put so much of efforts like Kathulu

Seems to me the best thing to do in this movie to survive is to immediately stare at the sun until blind.

It's God. Nobody can look at him and live; they are consumed by their own imperfection before him and are compelled to destroy themselves. Except for the crazy people - the Christians. They are made immune to the burning of his presence, and love and worship him, longing to share him with everyone else and make them see too. Cthulu probably also represents this God, the great monster waiting to destroy the world (again).

It might be a copy of A Quiet Place, but Bird Box did one thing much better than A Quiet Place, and that was that they never showed their monster. It's a horror film, and one of the things that humans fear more than anything is the fear of the unknown. If we can't even fully conceptualize something, we fear it. That's just our nature, and Bird Box manipulates that masterfully. A Quiet Place shows their monster in the very first scene, so it was never scary. Tense, sure. But not scary.

I'm being perfectly honest, I don't think it's the rapture. I think it is HP Lovecraft plus the SCP foundation. Look at the scp-001 document titled when day breaks.

What the people see is they're worst fear, any fear you have will appear together as one thing, but everyone has different fears than other people that's why "the monster" is invisible till you see it. But some people that are insane and dont have fear end up becoming their own monster.

I didnt question it cause I always thought the monster is a ufo but in a costom of a bird living in a box or a bird that has birds or a ghost or sally the eartworm or a human shadow thats the name is bird box XD or a sacubos or a demon or a gorgon like eureyale stheno or medussa remove medosaa XD or its not its probobly a shadow that there eyes are glowing or a octopus man or one of love crafts characters in her book or things :P or something thats what I always thought :P but now yes I am very questionable :P or not eh edit: I know am late cause I got grounded UwU

Mattpatt..................... are you fucking serious, do i seriously have to tell you that we aren't supposed to know what the monster is. We are supposed to use our imagination to know the basic concept of the monster, we don't need nor should not know what the monster is to understand the conflict our characters are facing.

This could probably be based off another "end-of-the-world" theory that Catholics have also been theorising.

@Grimmy HITS it can't touch things, cant breathe, can't feel, cant speak, cant see, can't sense, cant hurt, it can only kill, so if you think it's still ALIVE than just stop commenting because you dont get it, but everyone else did.

@Cesar Rodriguez it still moves and can touch things so therefore, it does exist. People all around the world wouldn't just suddenly start seeing something that doesn't exist. If they can see it, then it does exist.

There will be a movie where SMELL will kill you
The outbreak started in Romania. And I guess you could say the creature has a few vampire like qualities as well. I like how the last theory subverts religious ideas. Which is also pretty Lovecraftian in itself since he was very atheistic and you could see his mythos as this thought experiment where gods do exist but do not violate the general idea of a non humancentric post darwinism kind of worldview. Some of his creatures like the "Migo" are some kind of 10th dimensional metacosmic predatory aliens whose skin somehow doesnt reflect light in a way that makes them visible on photos for example.
