The Secret Horror Behind Carrion's Monster | The SCIENCE of... Carrion

SUBSCRIBE to Catch all the Theories! ►

What's more fun than playing as a monster bent on eating humanity? Well, not much, but today Austin is going to try to top it! The monster you play in Carrion is often assumed to be an alien brought into this facility. Yet, there are many gruesome hints throughout the game that may prove we have all been too quick with our guesses. That's right, the origins of this monster are much more Earthly... and much more horrible. Take it away, Austin!

  • There is only one genre of horror that uses phrases like “antediluvian” and “cyclopian”, and that is Lovecraftian Horror. The Carrion monster is basically a Shoggoth that was experimented on by the Great Race of Yith.

  • well my theory is that the monster that we play as is an amoeba ,an giant one and is an experiment that was meant to serv a porpose maiby an biowapon or just an tipe of ancient amoeba that lived thousads of years ago and the company discover it , and the samples that we colect in the game are experiments meant for mylitari porpose ,spider wabe? shot an enemy whit it and put him down ,camuflage? make yourself invizible , go bihinde the enemy lines and kil them al ,eco location ? spot eviry enemyon a mile a way and BOOOM , they are ded i kan go like this al the day , but this text is going to long so il let you theorize frome now.( also sory for my bad spelyng )

  • You say that we have this thing, but there's alien iconography. Maybe it was actually made by aliens as a way to wipe us out, and Relith just happened to get a hold of it. It destroyed the facility, but after that, it was in the middle of the desert with nowhere to go, so it entered a dormant state again until it was found. And it was. Also, human dna contains all the right genes to produce feathers, it's just a matter of selective activation.

  • Antediluvian in the context of the game would likely mean "prior to a catastrophic event", with it meant to parrallel the notions used with the great flood, as it was a flood that wiped out all life on earth, hence the 2 of every animal thing. Taking it literally to mean it about Noah's flood really bothers me because of how easy it is to see that it's not literal considering the moss isn't in a place that is *literally* antediluvian.

  • The amusing thing with this is that now that it has assimilated human DNA it will maybe just live a normal life, after all if it was growing on the first place it was because he had only instincts but now he can also think and feel complex emotions thanks to the human DNA so why would he just put himself in danger by revealing that he's a monster when instead he can just eat discretely some humans that no one cares about for money and after that live like a human (a lot like in the anime Parasite)
