    So everything that pooka does, he has already done..
    So I guess when the pooka was humping the bed near the end, he was probably humping Melanie...🤷‍♀️
    Sorry my mind is broken.

    Pookas in mythology are shapeshifters (in Celtic lore) or nature spirits (in Scandinavian lore). They're capable of interacting with humans through speech and tend to be mischievous in nature. They can manifest as long-haired horses, rabbits, dogs, etc, and can be both "good" and "bad." Though, what I've read seems to suggest they're more playful than actually harmful.

    Those still confused. The beginning shows a scene of an accident. Wilson and Melanie are indeed both husband and wife and one day during the holidays, they decided to go to a farm house with their son Ty following. Now Ty has a doll, named Pooka, basically the Pooka doll shown and explained here. The reason why the dolls kept on saying "Look at all the pretty lights"was because Melanie tried to distract Wilson, who was having a road rage by saying that phrase. They all soon got into a car crash and the lady they ran into was Red. Mel and Ty were killed when the car exploded but Wilson was sort of 50-50 and this whole episode was a dream/limbo aftermath of what happened to Wilson. Wilson had anger issues, hence why he acts violently when he is in his naughty mode. The red walls is to describe perhaps Red covered in blood or dying when moving to the after life or so. Pooka was indeed a toy sold all around.

    I watched video 50+ times and I'm confused...
    Is the entire movie Wilson trying to come to grips with and cope with what has done that led to the crash that killed his family via a nightmarish dream?
    Another question that confuses me is Pooka...is Pooka a mental representation of Wilson's angry side?

    It all makes sense they say before you die your life flashes before your eyes and he thought about everything he could have done so I’m guessing he might be dead and lookin at his life

    I think Wilson has created his own private hell. He’s stuck reliving that nightmare over and over again. He may be dead or insane after the accident. His mind and memory have taken in all the surroundings and are stuck in loop. I don’t think he will get a second chance to avoid it imo. This story is crafted really good.
