      See the movie.

    • PhoenixBlazer39 says:

      It’s because, similarly to canaries in mines, captured birds used as early detection systems when the eldritch monsters are near or present.

    • TamTroll says:

      Birds freak out in the presence of the creatures, so early on, the main character rescues three small birds from an abandoned department store. Then later from her perspective, she puts them into a box to be carried by Girl to their new home. By the end of the movie, they open the Bird-box to let them fly with other birds.

    • CATZILLA D2B says:

      Its cause the movie is about a bird box that gets people to kllem self

    Why exactly did we jump to the conclusion that the creatures from the story were audibly mimicking anyone at all? The voices the victims “hear” are voices they already know and trust. Knowing this, it’s safe to conclude that the creature itself has direct access to the victims thoughts and is already firmly entrenched in their mind. The creature isn’t “mimicking” anyone. It’s whispering directly into the victims mind, and triggering the exact thoughts necessary to confuse them to their will. They all hear the voice they’re most likely to follow, but layered just underneath is always the darker whisper of something else. You hear it in the movie and even in the clips in this video. There is no actual mimicry at play here. It’s forced suggestion and psychic mind fuckery at its most basic. Whisper your suggestion directly into your victims mind, and tickle the right memories to manipulate the voice into exactly what they need to hear.

    Pretty stock standard Great Old One shit, to be honest. It’s all just breaking down the victims sanity be it by sight, or psychic faux auditory suggestion and hallucinations. Hell, if you want to get REALLY nerdy with it, in D&D if you’re a warlock and you make a pact with a Great Old One and take them on as your patron, two of the earliest spells you’re granted access to are “dissonant whispers” and “detect thoughts”. Sound familiar? It probably does if you’ve ever played a Shadow Priest in World of Warcraft too. WoW has its version of Great Old Ones called the Old Gods. Cosmic abominations, usually functioning as raid bosses, with unique gameplay mechanics that directly damage the players “sanity” which is represented with its very own “sanity” meter. Drop to 0 (ie: insane) and you lose complete control of your character and begin attacking your own raid, Its also a mechanic for these bosses to “whisper” directly to individual players at random, whispering suggestions, lies, and threats directly into into their headsets/speakers that only they can hear. It’s pretty neat, actually. The inspiration for all of these creatures are, again, directly inspired by the Great Old One’s mythos.

    One more fun fact: they’re also the basis for everyone’s favoritest child murdering, dancing clown: Bob Gray! (…more commonly known as Pennywise).

    So yeah. Ain’t no rapture involved, son. This is Old One’s psychic mind flaying and fuckery 101. The only way those poor folks would be hearing the arch angel whispering to them would be if THAT was who it would take to convince them to remove their blindfolds. “Whisper” the suggestion, manipulate their thoughts to “trust”, and get ready to feast on their sanity like a parched and thirsty MatPat locked in a hot garage with a ice cold 24-pack of diet Coke. And like poor, decimated diet Coke’s laid strewn at M’Patagoth’s shambling…Nike’s(?). once their sanity is drained, you crush the can and toss it into the trash. It was never about the killing. That was just incidental to the mind crippling insanity : D

    it’s probably some SCP that escaped

  12. Trelerxhyper says:

    Spoiler: it was john cena

    “Jake Paul nearly gets hit by a car doing ‘the bird box challenge’”


  14. Dead2theworld says:

    Quiet place ripped of bird box the book for bird box came out first

  15. Artemis GD says:

    Is bird box really classified as “horror”?

    • PhoenixBlazer39 says:

      Thriller or surreal horror, maybe? It is definitely horror, though. Eldritch abominations that induce insanity and suicide in whoever sees them? Yep, that’s some tasty low-key Lovecraftian cosmic horror, which we could really use more of these days.

  16. Subscribe To Me For No Reason says:

    Wrong. It was actually a moving screen playing a compilation of all the game theory’s and filim theory’s intros.

    May god have mercy.

  17. Cole Morgan says:

    Okay, I have a film theory suggestion that I’ve been meaning to ask but never gotten around to ask it. Here it is: How many rules and regulations did Pheneas, Ferb, and their friends break throughout the series? There’s got to be like a 100 of them right?! 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!

    • Arthur Lima says:

      No one cares about Phenas and Farb, we want to see Perry

    • roe says:

      +Arthur Lima honestly I would be more interested in why the entire scenario always plays out the same except in a few circumstances it is almost like Perry is destroying the evidence of Phenas and Ferbs work and the proper time to line up with stopping Dufe and the parents coming home. Does Perry know that he is doing this?

  18. Kamerbom Kai says:

    Cmon MatPat. It is abviously Shaggy at 19% of his power.

  19. Shadelz says:

    So… Its basically the visual version of “the happening”?

  20. Luke Ax says:

    I really like the theory, but it misses the fact that Tom still chose to save his family after seeing it, meaning he wouldn’t believe it was good, partially invalidating the rapture theory.
