It Follows brought a very original and terrifying monster to our screens. The Entity that once attached to you and follows until it can end you. The only way to save yourself is to pass it along to someone else... or is there another way? Is there a way to actually defeat the monster? Loyal Theorists, this will have to be one of my most clever solutions yet! Let's get SCARY!

  • [Matpat, I have a film theory if your interested!] There's a show called "Minecraft's Most Wanted" on the channel "GameBeast999". I came across it and found the acting a little off, but the character Jose seems a little strange. It seems like he has more power than the other characters and is worth checking out. So far 4 out of 11 episodes are out and I think that this show is more than it seems

  • But how did it come to exist in the first place? f you can keep that routine up until your last day, and the people before you have either already died or have little time left, then would it just cease to exist after? Or could it select a random person?

Just wait at the police station then they will get all evidence they need. Build a cage, and lock it up, it can't open door, and if you make it of very strong metal, then bam.

  • Personally, I would just go on a trip to say, the Phillipines, sleep with a particularly popular prostitute, then fly back. They would hopefully have repeated enough one night stands that the list wouldn't get back to me ever. Theres also the fact that most people that see prostitutes probably aren't just seeing one. It would become a local legend, and I would be safe for the foreseeable future

  • Since it's Halloween, I had an idea for a video. (If I posted this in the wrong spot, I apologize in advance) Could you investigate the science in the Tesla Coil Tower in the newest Goosebumps movie, "Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween"? I know it isn't 'new', but I am curious if I could do something similar for a science project, given it's possible. I also just want to say, Matpat if you're reading this, that you and your team did a great job on this video and thank you. I have watched your two channel's for the better part of my life, I even find myself rewatching the first ones. And I am proud of you and your team's hardwork and dedication ever since then. I also really enjoy the third newest channel, Food Theory. Which I'm also inspired that during this pandemic, your team and yourself were able to fight through the barriers and make a successful channel. It goes without saying that you You and your team have and will inspire me and so many other people for years to come. Thank you guys and stay safe out their. PS: YOUR ALMOST AT 2M SUBSCRIBERS, Congrats and good luck.

  • Dearest matpat, I know you probably won’t see this but I would like to make a request. My friend is IN LOVE 😍 with toilet bound hanako kun. Her favorite character is tsuaksa yugi and Amane yugi (brothers u3u) and it would mean the world to her if you made a theory of why Amane killed his brother. or what’s gonna happen after chapter 71. It would make me and friends really really happy if you made a theory on this. We all agree your the smartest person we watch so we think you’d be right for the task! If you haven’t see the show I recommend you watch it (IN SUB. JUSTIN BRINER VOICES HANAKO IN DUB AND ITS JUST- WHOOOO.) Again if you don’t see this that’s alright! We just hope one day you’ll make a video about it! We love you matpat!! Watch the show it’s good (if you want to.) -Avery.
