    I get that you are saying that some concepts of the rapture could have influenced the creation of the monster, but you took a lot of the ideas about the rapture out of context and misapplied them here.

    It could also be inspired by the Nachtkrapp and the wendigo. The nachtkrapp is a south German bird man, who if you look in its eyes you quickly die (not really specified how), but if you see the holes in its wings you get infected with a sickness. This explains the two effects. It is also shown in the movie that the creature started in the Northern Europe area and moved east through Asia and then into America. The wendigo is the ultimate hunter, able to mimic voices of others and move faster than humans can see. Although you can also see it as there is no myth it is based on, but rather a creature of his own design, that simply has elements inspired by various creatures. It seems to also be inspired by vampire lore, unable to enter a building without permission, for example.

    So like... has no one noticed the similarity between Skyline (2010) and Bird Box?
    I mean for no particular reason, creatures not of our kind come to us, control our mental desires, fears, and confusion into a trance towards the object. Thus, the creature killing people.
    The alines used in Skyline shine off light into the exposed eyes of the human putting them into a trance moving close to the alien. Once close enough the alien kills the human and rips out their brain using it for power.
    In the movie, it follows a couple inside a group of survivors. The girlfriend of the leading male role is two months pregnant. Skipping somewhat ahead, the leading male role was one of the first to get abducted, however, the girlfriend gets to him soon enough to pull him away and, wait for it... CLOSE THE BLINDS. Now, while being in the trance, the male's eyes changed along with the surrounding skin. An intense smoked out ring around the eyes onto the temples with dark veins exposed and the eyes clouded over.
    Skipping ahead a few deaths, the leading male and his girlfriend are finally abducted. In the mothership, the long tentacles of the aliens come up to the girl and before killing her, it hears the heartbeat of the fetus in her. The alien sends her to a separate part of the ship with other pregnant women for early delivery. The movie pans over to another part of the ship that is taking the brains and show a red glowing brain. An alien replaced the old brain which was in its head previously and goes AWOL. Turns out that was the brain of the leading male and he now has taken over the alien's body. Before the aliens could force the baby out of the leading female he crashed through the walls of the ship and rips apart the tentacles of the other aliens. Then a heartwarming scene of the tow recognizing each other.
    [I don't really feel like typing it all out since we get the gist of it lol]
    Now, if you don't follow that get this. The movie Skyline ends with us assuming that the leading male kills the aliens and setting those who are alive free. Now with the traumatic events that had to happen, you'd think they'd go insane. So, say do.
    Years later after the events of Skyline, a creature of the unknown appears and starts showing people their mental desires, fears, and confusion... sending them into a trance and doing the only thing that they would find acceptable in a time of unfathomable stress. Suicide.
    People who were not affected by these creatures were to have previously experienced some type of trauma... how about abduction...
    Personally, I believe that these two are somehow connected, though I love the theory of Cthulhu and I do also believe it. I still come back to this. I am open to discussion on this but I just thought that I would put this out there. Again, wonderful video!

    I have a theory
    (WARNING: This may not make any sense, nor connect to the evidence given, NOR be correct. I am not saying that they are so plz dont bash me for it)
    What if there are multiple monster thingies. Think about it, Gary had several drawings of all different shapes and sizes. Even so, they were all different. What if they all were the true minions of Mr. Cthulu himself and they were sent on a mission to "cleanse" the world. Look at what he said about the 9 tail guy. What if the Cthulu decided "Hey, I want souls!" and used the humans. But that still leaves questions. What about the birds? Did they truly see the creatures or just sensed it? Would other animals do the same thing? If they truly saw it, would they also lose their minds and kill themselves and/or others? In the movie, the birds also went insane when Charlie's friend began calling out and tried to get the door opened. So, they go insane whenever there's a person who "worships" the creatures. Or, were they just sensing mere danger? We'll never know. Bounce back to my theory, our theorist mentioned that the creature ain't got time for us puny humans, which points back to the fact that he has minions to do his everloving bidding. Idk, what does everyone else think?

    For me, this bird box monster is more likely an eldritch being than a celestial or divine being(like god, angels, saints souls etc...)
    But, cthulhu is WAY MORE POWERFUL than this bird box monster. The prayers of cthulhu are driven so mad that, they are chanting in an old and almost impossibly hard to spelling language. The language of great ones. And, cthulhu's madness effect is so powerful that, when he stands on a middle of the street, i guess entire city would... maybe not instantly, but really fast go mad. People would not have a chance to run away. It is the great cthulhu himself for gods sake!... He would corrupt peoples minds with just simply standing there... Forget the blindfold... You would need the protection of spear of the destiny, a prophet's divine aid or something to withstand... Cthulhu has his servants. A fish-frog like race and they are actually interacting people. Bird box monster, for me, is not the great and almighty cthulhu himself. Sounds more likely nyarlathotep. A be,ng, looks humanoid, wonders in the realms, earth, dreams, and realm of old ones, but creates a madness that anybody in earth that "interacts with" or maybe "sees" him. You can "hide" from nyarlathotep. Some of the followers of eldritch beings call this madness "illumination"... You know... Something divine. Nyarlathotep is... a bit of an arrogant b*tch that does not bother opening doors, following people, not not certainly the blindfold... His ability effects people on a different level and he can control it. THose voices that mimicks people might be a thing that he learned in his journeys that just "spice up the things" etc... He will just simply walk over the place, and enjoy the show. And people would do the job for him. This explains both the drawings, requires to "look", being able to hide, and followers that can actually think, make plans, and can hide in the popularity. Why criminals? Because they have more potential than other innocents. They already commited bad actions. They can always do it again. Before saying anything about second chance, nyarlathotep is the judge. So, if he doesn't give a f*ck, than nothing else matters...

    the monster is true reality. not that which is thought to exist, but that which is known to exist. philosophically, other people cannot be known to exist, and the movie further implies they do not exist. only your own self exists, and other people are copies and representation of your own self.
    when faced with this truth, some choose to deny it as false, and some choose to accept it as true. the ones who deny go to the oasis. the others live in insanity and depravity, because only nihilism follows logically.

    The monster in Bird Box is right-wing and conservative political thought. It is an SJW propaganda movie (which is standard Hollywood fodder these days) whose message is _"do not look at right-wing messages, because their information will make you believe a lie and drive you insane"._
    At this point, leftists - and I don't just mean extreme leftists, I mean regular leftists - are literally advocating for shutting their eyes and ears to facts, truth, and reality in favour of _feelings._ This is rather exasperating:
