    I did think it was weird that she started growling after she killed the other Tyler twin, and started chattering her teeth when she killed her counterpart at the end.

      There were hints in the beginning of the movie that she wasn't the real one. Or that the kid was suffering from PTSD. The mom always knew. The dad who was keen on getting a beer or getting out to have a smoke didn't notice.
      But the mom when they were talking to the doctor said "I just want my daughter back" clearly she knew something was wrong.

            No wonder the mom and the little boy had such a connection. They were both switched

                      Interesting theory but one I dont particularly like or agree with. No wonder Matt came to this conclusion he lives in California. (Slow clap)
                      Boy I expect a lot of dislikes

                          I realize that I wouldn't have gotten any of this if I actually had watched this movie...

                            I'm confused and my mind has become an absolute train wreck. Can someone please explain to me what the meaning of this theory is?

                              Um....... It was obvious that they switched. That wasn't a twist. If you didn't see that, you're dumb.

                                        We are all the same. We eat, bathe, sleep, all in the comfort of our homes at the same time as other people do the exact same thing, but in a precarious situation. We grow up as good, civilized people as some others end up being broken because we are all products of our own environment.

                                                  do you have a video about the movie Hereditary? I think it has a subtle metaphor too. I don't but the demonic cult; I think it's bullshit. so if anyone know any theory about it, please tell me

                                                      Jordan peele also said that its a commentary on the fear of "other" like immigration, party differences, etc when really people are the same AND he apparently said that bunnies are cute but their ears freak him out .
                                                      They do kinda look like their heads are upside down scissors
                                                      Also i think bunnies are representative of labs right? Where people did experiments to create the tether. Like the animal testing symbols is a bunny, right?

It is also seen with Jeremiah 11:11. I thought that god was not satisfied with everyone on earth because they had no soul. I also had a feeling of materialism as well and agree completely with peeles message
