Could it be a basilisk? It kills you if you look it in the eye I don't really think it can open doors And it's a bird, hence the title of the movie.

I will probably never see this movie but I really like this channel. I know this stuff is just for fun...but...as a Bible teacher I gotta correct some things because some people are going to put stock in this information: 1) there is no such thing as Christian occultism. All occultic practices are forbidden. If something is occultic it is automatically non-Christian, heretical, or even an abomination (Lev 19:31& 26; 20:6-27, Deut 18:10-12, Acts 8:9-13, Acts 19:18-19, Rev 9:21, 18:23). 2) the Rapture is not for those who merit going to heaven it is for those who are "saved," that is, those who have trusted in Christ as their only Savior. According to the Bible, no one is "rapture material" because no one deserves to go to heaven. We are all sinners who Dishonored God's commandments. That is why we need a Savior (Rom 3:23, Eph 2:8-9, Titus 3:5, 1 Pet 1:18-23). 3) The Day of the Lord passage you read is from 1 Thessalonians chapter 5 not chapter 1. 4) following that, 1 Thessalonians 5 does not deal with the rapture but what happens after. The Day of the Lord is a time of judgement that comes after the rapture but not necessarily immediately after 5) cardinal sins is terminology for more Roman Catholic people not something rapture-believing Christians would hold to. In fact, the Roman Catholic church has, in the past, gone on record to condemn the idea of a rapture of any kind. 6) there is nothing in the rapture teaching that says raptured souls are calling out to others.

I feel like the monster is from beyond our dimension, incapable of comprehension: something that shows us how insignificant and meaningless we all are. It shows us a greater purpose or a higher power, it shows us the ultimate truth. The people who see this either go mad from the terror of this truth, or give in to a nihilistic revelation that none of our mortal lives matter and that death on this dimension is just the first step toward another stage of greater existence. This would explain Lydia seeing her mom. She sees her energy and understands that there must be a more significant life after death here on this dimension.

You should do a fill theory on trolls. I know there's something going on underneath the plot but I cant figure it out

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

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.
