Added DiffLines:


[[WMG: The Creatures are Multiversal beings doing human experiments.]]
They wanted to see which of the 5 senses humans need most to survive so they invaded 5 earths and attacked anyone who used one specific sense on them. The earth of Film/{{Hush}} and Film/AQuietPlace were also part of the exeriment.

Added DiffLines:

[[WMG: The Creatures don't work on people who have already survived a suicide attempt.]]
It has nothing to do with sanity or lack thereof.


Completely explainable alien beings that use human senses to take control of people and force them to kill themselves or others? The Doctor will be along shortly to clean them up I'm sure.

Unlike in the book, the creatures in the movie are unambiguously malevolent. However, despite this, they never attempt to break into people's homes or forcibly overpower them in any way - even at the climax when they have a *child* completely at their mercy, they don't try to tear off her blindfold, they instead use their VoiceChangeling abilities to try to trick her into taking it off herself.

\n* Or maybe a mix between boggarts and dementors, that's why they have characteristics of both; take the form of your biggest fear or your biggest pain, and make you crazy.



Added DiffLines:

[[WMG: The movie is part of the Franchise/CthulhuMythos universe]]

Creator/HPLovecraft's influence is obvious. The creatures are Great Old Ones who are often described as having deranged followers and turn sane people crazy if ever seen.

Added DiffLines:


[[WMG: Alternatively, ''Bird Box'' takes place in the universe of [[Literature/HarryPotter Harry Potter]] and the "thing" is a really strong ''boggart'']]

Possibility is that "it" is an experiment slipped from an experiment of the Department of Mysteries. Perhaps an hybrid of boggart, basilisk and fwooper.


[[WMG: Alternatively again, "it" is ''It(Literature)'']]
Since "It" can change appearance.

[[WMG: The [[Characters/DoctorWhoWeepingAngels Weeping Angels]] are to arrive on this version of the Earth]]

The thing was sent to pull humans to close the eyes... when the Weeping Angels arrive there will be the end of the world.


[[WMG:''Bird Box'' is in the same multiverse as 'íFilm/AQuietPlace''.]]

Added DiffLines:

[[WMG: ''Bird Box'' takes place in the same universe as ''Film/CabinInTheWoods'']]

Since pretty soon [[WMG/GrandUnifyingGuesses every horror franchise will be part of this universe]] I'm gonna get ahead of this one.

It starts just after cabin ends and the creatures were either created by or came after the giant hand as part of a series of [[Film/AQuietPlace monsters that pray on one of the five human senses.]]


[[EldritchAbomination Whatever Saya actually would be]] is implied to be so hideous that just looking at them once [[GoMadFromTheRelevation will drive the victim crazy]]. Usually they are shortly killed after by Saya, but they are left crazy and suicidal nonetheless. The ones that have already gone crazy before encountering Saya? They see her as beautiful or fascinating.

Thatís why sane people kill themselves and sane people start acting as functional individuals even planning, deceiving, driving and the like.

[[WMG: ''Bird Box'' takes place in the same universe as ''VisualNovel/SayaNoUta'']]

Creatures so terrifying that they make people go insane to suicidal lengths just by looking at them?

This is assuming you chose [[spoiler:Ending 2, in which Saya "blooms" and has her spores turn the rest of humanity into the rest of her kind.]] By that time, the "epidemic" would have 100% consumed Japan, but [[FlowerMotifs dandelion spores]] don't travel so far so fast, so of course it would take a bit longer for it to reach the rest of the world.

Problem is, angels are {{Eldritch Abomination}}s too, therefore seen an angel makes most people mad (or make them feel so bad about their own mundanity or guilty about their sins that they kill themselves), thatís why crazy people sees them a beautiful, as crazy people donít feel remorse (thatís why the term "criminally insane" exists).
