Great theory for a dark movie. That's a good one.

Well done! Loving this channel so far! Not just a shred of plausibility, it's actually pretty blatant.l

If this is about a food disorder, why is the opening scene a kid dragged to hell?
Sara Shields (3 months ago)
It's the only horror movie that make sense. Horror movie have no logic that we I don't watch anymore.

That was really clever. Good theory.

I've always noticed the movie had a lot of stuff going into mouths...

Sad to say. Only the Obscuralist theory about Harry Potter and the Predator's reasons to kill have been the only original YouTube videos you've guys have done so far. Stop ripping off others work and actually sit down and be creative! You guys are so great and talented, I'm disappointed in you guys.... I'm not going to unsubscribe cause I know you guys will only become better and better.😊

This is a good film theory, That Film Theory, but I don't think it was ever really mentioned or alluded to what's her name having a bad case of bulimia. Instead I think the medical condition you're reaching for That Film Theory is anorexia. Bulimia would indicate that she engorges herself on food up to often then later vomits somewhere unseen to maintain her thin figure. Anorexia would be the best film theory on why she's having so much difficulty dealing with food in general, not just sweets. She's traumatized from a childhood filled with being made fun of and quite possibly worse from her peers for being a fatty. So in her attempts to become thin she winds up sacrificing alot more than she initially wanted. Over the course of the years she forgot about the reasons why she wanted to be thin in the first place, but by now it's no longer a longing or desire to be thin, but an all consuming need to be as thin as she possibly can. It doesn't help her at all to be in a highly competitive white collar job/work place. Then her on-the-surface-useful-but-ultimately-stupidly-useless boyfriend cracks tasteless fatty jokes which further reinforces her anorexic eating disorder. Because he barely qualifies as someone you would want for a friend let alone significant other he doesn't see the emotional distress he is causing her.

I think it's a nod to bulimia because there's SO MUCH that goes in her mouth that NO ONE would want in their mouths (an eyeball, worms/maggots, bile/saliva from another person) plus the scene where she yanks the old woman's handkerchief out of her throat. Anyone would puke if this stuff was in their mouth, giving her a "reason" to continue binging and purging. Also, when she sells everything she has for help (she needs $10,000.00 - which is a starter fee for an ED clinic - and a lousy one at that), she sits at her kitchen table, crying with hopelessness, and shoveling ice cream down her throat when all she can scrape together is (I think), $4700.00.

Brilliant. I thought it was just Sam Raimi’s fetish for throwing gallons of funk into actors’ faces. 😂
Christopher Randolph (5 months ago)
Duh
Reggie Bannister (5 months ago)
Co-screenwriter Ivan Raimi actually is an MD. I'm not sure if the Raimi brothers were conscious of it but it is a great theory.

This was a really cool analysis of this film!
Empire Light (6 months ago)
Huh, I always thought that it was about abortion. Eating disorder or morning sickness and food cravings?
Víctor Báez (6 months ago)

Víctor Báez yes

I'm here just for Ash
Ethan Hart (6 months ago)
Did Patrick Bateman really kill all those women?
Danny O’Flanagan (27 days ago)
Ethan Hart NO! He didn’t kill anyone,he murdered them in his mind because he was envious of them
Brian Logan (6 months ago)
Holy Shit! I'm so glad I checked this channel out! You guys just mind fucked me.

After watching the Shining Theory as well, I have to say I like the tone of the other Video much better, since theorizing has a more, let's call it scientific, vibe to it. This "top 10" music in the background kinda distracts from the content to my mind. But still, liked the video.
Theresa Cherco (6 months ago)
I think it is maybe
Cristina Bay (6 months ago)
I absolutely loathed this movie, but I do like this theory.
no one (6 months ago)
I feel you guys are just ripping off film theory.... just not funny?? You could at least give the channel a mention in the notes so it doesn't just look like your making all the theorist gold up your self!?
a guy (5 months ago)
no one Hey, film theory takes about a month or two between vids, this one makes shorter, more frequent ones that *haven't been done on matpat's channel* so I'm subscribing to both 😂

I never understood why people hated this film. It wasn't supposed to be a hardcore Horror flick. It's a comedy.
Punch Drunk Savage (1 month ago)
I laughed more than during this movie than most comedy films.
NiceGuy Roy (4 months ago)
Till the end, that was pretty scary a jacked up. In my opinion
El Beardo (6 months ago)
It totally could be in Raimi's Evil Dead Universe
Ruby Winchester (6 months ago)
Mike, from Texas I love this film. People are too judgemental.
darkwaver517353 (6 months ago)
The ending is obviously not her getting pulled into the depths of hell. It's suicide. Like you stated, she can't cope with her issues and is still 'cursed' after the whole ordeal. She can;t win and decides to take her own life in the end. Why else would it take place on the train tracks? It would also be the conclusion of het story arch

Who said you could use my nan I this video.

And here I thought the whole movie was a giant inside joke on how the main character sucked dick. Interesting.

HotDog Donuts (6 months ago)

Bee Ran (6 months ago)

George Robertson (6 months ago)
Love the new channel guys
Mark Ant (6 months ago)
It`s the only theory that makes any sense because I thought the movie had deleted scenes, I just didn`t get it.
Marcy Lynn (4 months ago)
I have the theory that she is actually pregnant, when she tries to get rid of the curse and fail maeby she didn't. Probably the ritual only transfer the curse to the nearest infant or child, like is foreshadowed in the beginning of the movie. This is particularly interesting if you know that in the mitology of the Lamia she prefers babies and kids as her victims, besides women. One of the comments stated that she could have been contemlating for abortion and failed so the train tracks could simbolize a suicide, wich I think it makes my original theory far more plausible and ads a very interesting subtext to the whole movie
