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!

  • How to beat The Creature from It Follows: Uno Reverse Card Proof: I'm the one who chases the creature after i show my UNO REVERSE CARD

  • How about put a treadmill in where the entity is walking.

  • Guy's make sure to comment on this video link is here

  • The entity is what would happen if Terry fox did meth

  • how to beat it follows

  • 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

  • can you analyze the weeknds after hour short film? I feel like theres actually a lot "easter eggs" in that music video of the after hour album

  • Sleeping with an astronaut is free though...

  • Omg I just found out that his ISchats channel profiles for game, film, and food theory is the avatar Game theory: earth Film theory: fire Food theory: air ???? Theory: water

  • You gonna make a video about that tyler rake is actually alive in the netflix orignal movie extraction i mean its a popular theory and i know you would be able to find evidence that not many people are talking about

  • Plz do godzilla

  • 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.

  • Can you make a video about Justin y and Y he's everywhere and littlekingryan he's everywhere too!

  • I feel like this movie is just a creative take on aids

  • Or just throw paint on him leading to a police station and let them arrest him and lock him up forever

  • Knock it with a gun, trap it in a box and put it underground

  • This has been done before , I just want to say

  • I am scared for like no reason 😂

  • Could you do a theory on the ISchats video called “double king”? It’s so perfect for you matpat

  • I’d just save up money, buy a bunch of cement, dig a big hole, lure it into the hole then fill the hole with cement let it dry and boom it’s trapped forever.

  • Borrow the helicarrier. Optional to never land. Only way on is an aircraft. Need to shop? send a drone. Solitary? Good y know if ur caught. Food? Can you farm? Need meat? UFO an animal.

  • Beat it with an aspirin.... Keep an aspirin held between your knees, and evade this demon whenever you please =D

  • Bu-but am 15 0_0

  • Make a Doramon videos

  • Hahaha Bold of you to assume a woman would rather sleep with me than die at the hands of an entity 😭😭😭😭

  • Will you please do a film theory on why Homelanders lasers leave people a bloody pile of gore? Vaught invented the perfect direct energy weapon and gave it to a psychopatic man-child?

  • Guys just establish a friends with benefits thing simple

  • marymary has new videos out will we see another marymary theory please I want to see what you think

  • Do a theory on dark. Like if you want that too

  • Lol, MatPat, Detroiters pronounce it "Muh-comb" not "May-comb"

  • The story y of death battle make it

  • 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.

  • I thought this was a Nerd explains video

  • this theory went Primer pretty heavy. i like it

  • Do paul bayun vs steam saw

  • Someone’s been watching dead meat

  • Hear me out, Flight Attendant/Pilot

  • >put paint on it >walk into police station now the entire world knows of its existence and it will be hunted down and experimented on by the military. Just keep updated with what the military says about the creature lol

  • The joys of being Ace

  • Your videos are amazing and I get to learn something every time you post, it's like a small school lesson.

  • MatPat, this may seem like a weird question. Would Yogi bear and Booboo fly in the Basket Naber 200? Because that thing looks like it’ll fall apart the moment gravity hits?

  • Two words. Pit Trap.

  • 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!

  • What would happen if you got all of the people affected and then sacrifed you and them? What happens when one of the charecters dies of natural causes?

  • You should make a theory on if the series 'Raising Dion' is scientifically possible.

  • When you live in Michigan and watch this video...

  • That is only 2 meters per second.

  • Having a relationship is overrated.

  • the first article you site is from 2000 to 2016

  • Just watched Sonic the Hedgehog, and after doing so, I couldn't stop thinking to myself... Is Sonic technically a scarlet speedster, and could he be the fastest. Plz like this, I NEED am answer

  • Just be a truck driver. Problem solved.

  • Can you tag it with a tracker?

  • 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!

  • I like to read it as I.T tech follows trust me just do it

  • the start of this video out of context is so weird

  • ok the answer is obvious, move to mars, duh. or live in a van

  • How many bees would it take to lift the plane like in the bee movie

  • 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

  • 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....

  • When is the zathura theory? There’s too much weird about that movie for there not to be

  • thank you for explaining the distances for everyone who isnt American =]

    • Do anime theories. We don’t know who the UA tratior is

  • Am I the only one waiting for Matpat to do a theory on Haikyuu?😅

  • How does women's empowerment help stop teenage pregnancy lol, I'm not trying to hurt anyone's feelings but I just don't see much how that works. I mean as I'm a man I've never... been to one of those kinds of conventions, so...

  • Hey Matt been a while since I’ve seen any anime related stuff maybe dorohedoro from Netflix? Seems like it holds a plethora of theories you could come up with

  • That’s a horrible life

  • 7:41 I literally had a Volvo car accident ad right before that

  • I always wondered what kind of material are in cybclops' glasses. In X-Men first class.

  • How about just pushing it into a drowning machine? It will take some time to get out of there....

  • •____•

  • Wow I did not know that empowering woman means depowering baby by murdering them.

  • Matpat is missing the obvious answer here though. Contain the STD monster like the SCP Foundation would. A normal cell could easily stop it.

  • I mean passing it along to a bird would work pretty well... if you ignore the... yeah nevermind

  • Bruh three miles per hour for twelve hours, if you can walk that long you can jog for twelve hours

  • This is crazy. I literally live in Sterling Heights Michigan and had no idea this movie existed

  • Ok update on the hospital, it was demolished 2 years ago so don’t try to visit it.

  • Do anime theories. We don’t know who the UA tratior is

  • Oh good I'm only 16 years old LOOL :)

  • What’s pickle in the middle?????

  • just buy a tiny house... done

  • 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.

  • Then we hope the entity won‘t transform into Usain Bolt

  • 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?

  • me, an asexual: amateurs

  • Can u do one about kenny from southpark

  • You should do a theory in 2067 bc there are a lot of skechy topics

  • What if I have a treesome


  • Pretty sure you’ll be safe if you sleep with a hooker.... They’re pretty active, just saying. 😂

  • I feel like the entity wouldn't actually swim, it would probably have trouble going any where, let alone having to deal with the animals on the upper portion of the ocean, like sharks. Just because it's invisible, doesn't mean a shark couldn't sense it, right? (I need a part two to this theory!!!)

  • Except that making your commute longer does you no good, and in fact makes it so the entity gets to where you work sooner than if you had just gone straight there. You have to move/get a different job that has a longer commute. As pointed out, if there becomes a more direct route to you it will take that, not continue on the path you had taken to get there.

  • Make a sleepaway camp theory

  • I guess I should share this video with Cinema Summary? Or nerd Explains?

  • As a person born, raised, and currently still living in Michigan, I can confirm: We are the land of relentless killers.

  • Your car battery dies, and so do you.
