      But, the sequal would be THEM because it would be about the tetter being killed.

    Ok so, the mom in the red, was the real mom, that’s why she tried to take the kids, and did you notice? She’s the only one who knew how to speak English. All the others, were screaming in this weird language

    The movie took too long to get interesting. I fell asleep after the first 20 minutes. I wish I had the patience to get through it. It's such an unusual plot twist.

    6:56 they’re children of clones. And since they’re half clones thanks to their mom and clones don’t have souls they’re most likely just like their mom

    Maybe I’m just dumb, but why the real Adelaide was stuck in the tunnels? Once she got uncuffed why didn’t she escape? Was she controlled like the other tethereds? Or maybe she was the only one controlled by the fake?
    A little bit confused here.

    Us meaning the United States the clones were made by the government and the mother that was in red is the real one because when she was a girl she was replaced and the other mother told her daughter to put on her shoes because she knew the real one was coming back for revenge.

    She didn’t stumble upon the tunnel at all. She knew exactly where she was going because she lived there for 90% of their childhood before the switch occurred

  • Uncle Duck

    Research stuff. Some ppl who go through a trauma at a young age or any age. This trauma can cause a persons vocal cords to spasm and they sound like she does in this film. That was from an interview I seen. Lupita N'yongo said that she researched voices of ppl that experienced trauma in the past. That's where the voice comes from, but if you know that going into the movie then you can almost see the ending twist coming. Anyway I'd thought I'd throw that out there. Her voice isn't like that because of her getting choked it's like that because of the trauma of her switching out going from the surface to underground.

    "She confronted a little girl who looked exactly like her in a hall of mirrors."
    Hmm.... I wonder how that's possible....

    (If you don't understand sarcasm, I'm trying to say obviously she would see someone that looks like her in a hall of mirrors)

  • Danielle Martin

    Are we just going to ignore the fact that Red looks a lot like Thriller era Michael Jackson which was the shirt that Adelaide’s dad won for her in the beginning of the movie? alrighty then

  • Barbie Beautiful

    To me this is the best film I've ever seen. The scene where Red (Lupita) struggles with its duplicate, while simultaneously showing the ballet scene, with that music, is the best scene ever written.
    I can not figure out one thing. If the Adelaide (Lupita) was replaced with its double as a little child, how could she give birth to normal children, so Jason was replaced just as later, is that means that the whole family was replaced ???

  • Gustave Etheve

    When you realize that both Jason and his doppelganger is halfbreed.
    The tether Adeline made Jason with human husband. The real Adeline (who was underground) made her boy with a tether..
    With that, imagine both halfbreeds switching places and start again 😌
    Does that mean whom we say the "real human Jason" is the one who was above ground ( bred from the fake Adeline and human husband) or the one who was underground (bred from the real Adeline and fake husband)?
    Etc etc

    I wish that Red didn’t actually eat killed because that way we could have a another plot where she comes back ] or we atleast need something where it shows what the tethers end up doing and what happens with their family like if Jason ends up telling their sister and dad about the mom if she goes crazy and tries to kill them

    What did the rabbits eat
    -How did the tethered get the same clothes (white shirt for adelaides dad) and all other people above when they compared lifestyles
    -Why didn’t the girl just leave when she was brought down there
    -How did they all get red jumpsuits for an entire population and scissors
    -How can you fit the entire population down there
    -What was the US army doing surely it’s not too hard to take out a bunch of crazy folk with scissors especially when they started to line up.
    I absolutely loved ‘Get Out’ I just think this movie seemed better on script then film
