    I think it's 'original' form is whatever the hell we want it to look like. It could be something made of air or gas seeing how it wasn't visible from our perspective. But when coming into contact with any human it just naturally appears as anything that will through them off the edge. As for the people who see it and live to tell how it's "beautiful" I believe it's only mentally insane people. Not criminals. All people shown in the movie seemed to have a mental issue. That being said. If they're so mentally unstable, they're able to handle seeing this creature for it's 'true form' After seeing this creature it could have become their mission to let everyone else see it.

    wait so when someone opens their eyes and see the monster they go crazy and die, so does that mean that the monster would have to be visible to that person who just took their blindfold off, cause like they have to die BECAUSE they saw the monster not just cause they opened their eyes and saw nothing. So how is that possible cause the monster HAS to be visible STRAIGHT AWAY when they open their eyes? Every person dies straight as they open their eyes or take the blindfold off. Is the monster huge or does it teleport in front of each person who opens their eyes? I dunno what i'm getting to this is just a thought XD

    The descriptions of angels in Christian fanfiction like Dante and Paradise Lost is horrific. Maybe the "monster" is just a biblical angel...? These things are supposedly so divine that our human minds would break in its presence because we could not fathom it's existence. I think it's pretty strong.

    Conclusion: Mat isn't sure, could be cthulhu or it's the Rapture... If you really wanna watch start from around minute 9:00...

  • Matthew Jarrett

    I like this theory, but I'd disagree with the Rapture section. In the Cthulhu mythos there is a god named Nyarlathotep, who is principally a trickster god. He might be one of the Outer Gods, but he takes joy in messing with humanity and destroying it. Another possible culprit is Hastur - also known as the "King in Yellow" whose sign gives him direct control over a person who sees it, which would explain the cult. Anyway, good video though.

    Charlie wasn't making guesses at what the monster is, he was speaking of the representation of evil, and unkown. All the beings he mentioned were spirits who were known for being evil spirits Representative of the coming of bad things, it is considered extremely bad luck to encounter a nine-tailed fox in the east for example, Aka Manah is one of the great evils he seeks to corrupt and therefore destroy humanity not quite physically but by making them something less than human. Surgat is one of the 72 demons of Solomon of whom most are representative of coming omens and deathly prices, such as seeing something beautiful in exchange for your sanity. These are not meant to be 'this is possibly who the demon is/are' He is saying they have always existed and are called many things and do many things, he is saying they are under assault by demons, he is NOT saying those are the potential demons doing it.
