  1. Watch it with the idea that this monster is a personification of sexual trauma. Three main characters see the monster as one of their parents. Jay herself is drugged and “infected with the monster” immediately after she’s first had sex, and the perpetrator was himself a victim who is trying to get rid of the monster that’s always following him. It’s an interesting interpretation that seems to hold a lot of supporting evidence in the basic plot and themes of the movie itself.
