What the BIRD BOX monsters REPRESENT - Theory explained

  • Published on Jan 3, 2019
  • Everyone is asking this question and it's warranted because the monsters are never shown in Bird Box. Movie monsters are always a symbol or incarnation of something. So what exactly is the monster? Here is our theory.

    Unfortunately, turns out, we do had to re-upload this other video. Some people could not see it and it's more important that the message gets out. So we changed some of the "offensive" material but still kept the message. This movie really hit me hard and it was amazing in that it had so many different interpretations. As an artist, it inspired me and it's more important for me to share that inspiration than holding on to my pride. It's not even the issue of it not having been monetized, it's the issue of it having been blocked or invisible to some people (ha just like the monsters) How ironic.

    It's funny because we've seen worse on TVclip and those videos are free for people to stumble upon without being blocked. I can't help but feel a lot of it has to do with the overall message in that video rubbing some people the wrong way.

    ANYWAYS, here is the reupload.

      Hello there, I just wanted to say that I greatly appreciate your commentary on the message behind the monsters of “Bird Box.” I’ve never watched the movie for myself, but I’ve heard enough about it from other viewers to understand the basis of the story, and I’ve heard enough about how certain characters behave to understand enough of what’s being discussed in this video. What you had to say about it impacted me in perhaps a similar way to how the movie itself impacted you. Your experience with it truly resonated with me, as an artist and writer myself, and as an individual who is constantly seeking logic as a guide to rendering my own life’s journey. As a person who thrives on positive human interaction, I have been deeply scarred by how disconnected we are as humans, and that pain has often led me to desire a departure from the society I know, to one where people live more harmoniously with nature and with each other. Enduring in an environment in which a simple hello with a smile is looked down upon by the general public, and where connection via technology has caused people to redefine the value of their own lives by how much they can prey on each other with hatred, malignancy, and an obscure sense of entitlement, leaves me tired and worn from all the negativity that is allowed to permeate our individual and collective intellect. Our disconnection and lack of empathy towards each other is poisonous and keeps us distracted from reality. I am so glad that you spoke up instead of keeping this inside. I am developing stories of my own, via fantasy novels that deal with very hard truths about our world, in an effort to hopefully wake people up. Thank you; this was so encouraging. Don’t ever shy away.

    The way a see it is like this, there are two kinds of people, the ones who dislike life and moan about everything, then there are the people who just enjoy life as it is, because it must always be something about our society that is doing us wrong right?
    First it was the books some hundred years ago that steal the mind of the people not knowing when it's enough, when was the last time someone just went out to speak to someone in person, nah always at their books, this is the problem of society. Then comes the newspaper that steal the mind of the young people not knowing when it's enough, when was the last time someone just went out to speak to someone in person or just read a book, nah always at their newspaper not paying attention to no-one, this is the problem of society..
    Then music and film that steal the mind of the young people not knowing when it's enough, when was the last time someone just went out to speak to someone in person or read a book or learn the news of the real world, nah always with their music and movies, this is the problem of society..
    And then was social media and games that steal the mind of the young people not knowing when it's enough, when was the last time someone just went out to speak to someone in person, read a book or just meet with friends to watch some movies and listen to music, nah always with Facebook and gaming, this is the problem of society...
    The problem with society are the people who moan about everything, society is getting better and better can we stop already with the notion that everything is out there to get us and that we have nothing better to do then just walking around all day meeting new people?
    How about this, if you don't like how society is today then you go out and do all the things we are "supposed" to do and just wait till the new thing that we come out so you can just moan about something new!

    The monster's are supposed to represent their worst fear, making it so bad that they go insane. They hear voices, (mostly telling them to kill themselves.) That's just what I think it is though. I could be wrong.

    The monsters are supernatural beings that prey on human weakness and fears. That's it, that's all they are. The theme ofisocial isolation is part of Malorie's character arc and is not related to the beasties. Charlie (Lil Rel) was right. Mankind is being judged.

    But they said in the movie that when you see them you see your greatest fear or sadness. Just like the girl who saw her dead mom and killed herself. And It could of been some monster from the mist or any one of Stephen kings books. Or it could've been been pennywise. He could make them crazy when they look into the dead lights. And when they do their eyes kinda look the same. Well that's my opinion. And Alteori if you see this please share it
