    I feel like the monster is from beyond our dimension, incapable of comprehension: something that shows us how insignificant and meaningless we all are. It shows us a greater purpose or a higher power, it shows us the ultimate truth. The people who see this either go mad from the terror of this truth, or give in to a nihilistic revelation that none of our mortal lives matter and that death on this dimension is just the first step toward another stage of greater existence. This would explain Lydia seeing her mom. She sees her energy and understands that there must be a more significant life after death here on this dimension.

    To be honest the reason they probably made the monsters form not seen because that would make the scary affect of the movie
    Less scary

    The movie just made my brain rip Apart..Why couldn’t the movie start off like “ There was scientist doing some experiment and he or see dropped a bottle that Holds the ceature and it escapes.
    Skipping through when everyone dies except the kids and the mother (I forgot the name) She looks around in a library and finds a book that tell about the creature but still had to get away from them..

    I think Huli -jing is more suitable here because he can make ppl see dead, make an alternative mindset where people will think that ugly isn't ugly actually It's no so bad " just like Olympia describe. On top of he could change it forms technically, it's voice too . and this could be seen in the last part of the movie where Olivia and the child were being called by dead people . About he not passing through walls or going inside the house, as u said these creatures might not be interested to put so much of efforts like Kathulu

    It's God. Nobody can look at him and live; they are consumed by their own imperfection before him and are compelled to destroy themselves. Except for the crazy people - the Christians. They are made immune to the burning of his presence, and love and worship him, longing to share him with everyone else and make them see too. Cthulu probably also represents this God, the great monster waiting to destroy the world (again).

    It might be a copy of A Quiet Place, but Bird Box did one thing much better than A Quiet Place, and that was that they never showed their monster. It's a horror film, and one of the things that humans fear more than anything is the fear of the unknown. If we can't even fully conceptualize something, we fear it. That's just our nature, and Bird Box manipulates that masterfully. A Quiet Place shows their monster in the very first scene, so it was never scary. Tense, sure. But not scary.

    What the people see is they're worst fear, any fear you have will appear together as one thing, but everyone has different fears than other people that's why "the monster" is invisible till you see it. But some people that are insane and dont have fear end up becoming their own monster.
