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?

    You do realize driving 36 miles isn’t the same thing as putting 36 miles between yourself and the entity, right? It doesn’t follow roads, it walks in as straight a line as possible.

  • TheGreatDargon

    Couldn’t you just trap the entity with a falling cage or pit fall trap I mean falling cage would require welding so put falls seem like a more realistic option and if it can dig you could line the walls with sheet metal which isn’t the strongest but should keep it down there

    Could you not just simply decapitate it, chop off its limbs, then seal it away in a metal box and bury it. Very cheap, fairly permanent solution

    If were in the realm of fiction and abnormal beings can exist why not just put an article in a paper or online and get the attention of the SCP foundation? Even if the foundation couldn't contain it they could just feed it to 682 or something.

    Ok, I have a theory about the game system in Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle and Next Level. I think that the game creates the system. The board game was dismissed, so the game changed its mode. When Alex opened the box it shows just the game cartridge, but the system must have been plugged into the TV or perhaps it changed his PS1 into the Jumanji game system. The game system doesn't look like any sony system (and yes, the original movie with Robin Williams was made by Sony), so that's the best explanation I've come up with.

    Hey, I’ve been a watcher for a long time now and I’m not sure if you would do things like this on this channel but... It would be really interesting to see you try and dig into BTS’s storyline (they’ve created a story universe through their music videos since debut) because there are a LOT of theories and interesting stuff that might be to your interest!

    Can you tag it with a tracker?

  • Bubski

    theres a problem with your commute strategy though. You would have to account for things such as grocery shopping, (although i suppose you could use drive-thrus if the line was short enough.) as well as stopping to get gas and other essentials. (I guess you could buy a tesla, lmao) Still an amazing theory though!

    Only problem with this theory is that, the entity doesn't follow the route you took to work. It follows in a straight line to the target, minus buildings and objects that can't be walked through, climbed over (it climbs through a window in the movie), or crawled under

  • Dan55888

    Well guess I'm safe from this haunting. First because no one likes me. Second because even if I was desirable in any way I wouldn't be so shallow as to do or fall for a one night stand.

    Peeps with anxiety, please skip (atleast to 0:50)

    A theory: the entity actually exist in real life, and someone give it to Elon Musk, and to get rid of it, he indeed launch it into space.... And i think we can all guess what was inside that "empty" astronaut suit....

    Can't you just dig a hole, find a well, or some other similar pit? It can't go through things, and it had trouble climbing out of an empty pool. Just get it into a deep hole or a well, and board up the top if you feel like it. It'll never get out. You win, entity defeated.

    What if The Entity was like the Mercenaries from Assassin's Creed Odyssey? It's running all the time until it gets close to you and then starts walking just to give you a chance. But we wouldn't know it runs unless we saw it from some high place.

    You didn't mention that no one sees the entity!!

    The only problem though is does the entity go the fastest route or the most straightforward route? Like if between you and the entity is a lake, would it swim across the lake or walk around?
