** Alternatively: Bob may be an UnreliableNarrator, and there's no guarantee that what he says is the truth.
** Alternatively: After listening to Bob's log of what he thought would be his last moments, they find Bob alive.

** Alternatively, the seemingless log has clues as how to defeat the monster (i.e. it's allergic to the cake they had at the wedding).
** Alternatively, Bob is killed early on in the tape; Charlie, who is much more reliable, narrates from there on.

** Alternatively: The record is a written one, and the author has gone to the trouble of including everything that happened... including their death gurgles.
** Alternatively: The record makes clear that if the person recording it had simply made an effort to actually deal with or escape the crisis rather than recording it, they'd have been just fine.
** Alternatively: Alice discovers what appears to be a recording Bob made of the catastrophe that occurred. It's ''actually'' a sex-tape featuring Bob and Carol.
** Alternatively, again; Bob creates an apocalyptic log of his horrific struggles after...running out of [[TrademarkFavoriteFood cheese]].

* '''Reconstructed''': Alice discovers a recording of cameras controlled by an AI named B.O.B. that record a monster attack. Before being destroyed, B.O.B. was able to orient the cameras to view the monster, and use its internal library to generate plausible theories about its nature and possible weaknesses, which it included in the record.

* '''Played For Laughs''': Bob died in a humorous way. Such as death by monster tickling him.
** Alternatively, [[TooDumbToLive Bob died because he was recording his imminent death when he could have just run away]]. Optionally, the monster is also really slow.
