SOUTHBOUND (2015) Explained

In the horror anthology Southbound, intersecting tales of highway terror revolve around malevolent spirits at a truck stop, a mysterious traveller, a car accident and a home invasion. Through each segment we start to piece together a bigger story that explains just what the small town really is along with its locals, as well as how the stories are thematically connected.

    I really really love the designs of the reapers here. Is that completely original? I’ve never seen it before and it’s really cool, the way they open up to show a skull. Unironically awesome

    Still doesn't explain why the other two girls in the band got condemned too when they apparently didn't do anything 🤷🏾‍♂️.

    I remember seeing a gif of the alien killing that one dude and it stuck with me lmao Glad this movie popped up again. I heard it sucked but I was still curious

  • Tara

    I'm not convinced Lucas is actually let go. Seems more like they reset him so he could repeat a loop of accidentally murdering someone and then running away from the consequences again. While you can say he tried everything in his power, he still ultimately ran away and never wants anyone to know it happened. That's the same as the girl he hit's 'sin' - and she arguably had less culpability in her friend's death as just leaving someone alone at a party isn't manslaughter while running over a person is.

    You should check out Black Mountain Side and do a video :)

  • geospasmic

    Just watched this! I didn't realize it was great until the third vignette, where the seriousness and ridiculousness of the situation collide wonderfully, but I was on board from the start. Very Silent Hill-esque throughout. My kind of stuff. E: Anybody ever see ROT by the Corridor crew? It has a very similar vibe.

    This is a much needed explanation. I watched this movie, and got confused in the end.

    Wait I still don’t understand why jack and the other guy killed gems family? What did her dad do? They seemed like a fairly normal family.

    • FGC PEAK

      keyword: seemed. father likely assaulted that girl and murdered her

  • EveryTimeV2

    Emotional purgatory is for irrational people though, everyone knows that in the real world, terrible people never have to pay in a meaningful sense for 'their' """"sins"""". The rhetoric is all superstitious and only works if you take it seriously. Empirical evidence is better, because it's capable of actually changing the world in a meaningful way.

    i'm sure that someone before me pointed this out, but the part in the first story where they continually pull up to the same gas station is extremely similar to an episode of the original twilight zone where a guy finds that the same is happening to him.

    his speed coupled with how dark it was, it wouldnt of mattered if he was distracted while driving or not. he never wouldve seen her in time to react.

  • Chux

    Wait. They killed Alex? By a car accident on a way to a tour? How? That sounds purposeful. Did they think no one would notice when they perform., and if it was an accident why not call the police?

  • Chux

    If they’re in purgatory aren’t they too dead? So the family are weirdos who were also killers but they enjoy being there and have gamed the system and take new followers as they enter purgatory. Oh wait... whaaaat. They’re not dead? It’s an atctual place. Oooh.

    I would say he’s probably more likely somebody like me who has a fair ammount of knowledge of treating and identifying wounds, but he doesn’t seem to be a doctor as he doesn’t seem to have given an intubation before this and he just follows their incorrect information, and he also would’ve been more careful with carrying someone that injured.

    Ok first two guilty for hunting down innocent family. In return they where hunted down. Danny died alone being ignored by sister as he ignored any signs that she murder their parents. I don’t get the tour bus group deaths and Semblance to the past crimes

  • Eric Davis

    There's no way the guy from the car accident was a doctor. Everything they told him to do, from a medical standpoint, was insanely wrong and could only hope to worsen or kill the patient, such was clearly the point. And when he went to intubate her, he grabbed and used a nasal cannula, meant to administer oxygen from the nose. Otherwise, excellent video!! I love your channel :)

    I feel bad for the doc guy. Mans got pulled into the mess bc they thought he did it on purpose, and then when he said it was an accident, they were like "frfr? my bad homie, ayo, but i got you a sweet whip in the front"

  • TheDarknessIsWaiting

    This Movie is one of the Best articulations of Western Lovecraftian style of movie aspect similar to David Lynch. The Most amazing scene is the realization that some demons are real and have their own domains and do not go looking for them.
