Fan theories can be a lot of fun to entertain, even when they’re completely ridiculous. The best of these theories make so much sense that they’re difficult to ignore. They can influence the way we read an event or a character; they can open up new angles and new interpretations. Some theories even make more sense than the events that were actually intended in the film, planting a small seed of regret in us, wishing that the filmmakers and writers had thought of it as well. Most of all, these are just fun to talk about it, trying to rationalize why they do or don’t make sense, following the bread crumbs throughout the movie to make sense of it all, or prove it wrong. And some people just love to prove everything wrong.
The theories on this list are the best of the best, even if they may be a little silly. While it’s unlikely that any of these theories are true—in fact, many have been proven to be false without a doubt—these are still the most interesting fan theories floating around internet. I’ve tried to cover a range of films and genres because all genres have fans with way too much time on their hands. I don’t claim that any of these theories are my own either, so you won’t have to explain to me why they don’t make sense. I simply want to showcase some of the more interesting and far-fetched theories out there. They may not be the most plausible theories, but they are certainly the most ridiculous movie theories to ever surface.

1 Eating Disorders Drag Me to Hell
There’s a really interesting theory about the undervalued Sam Raimi comedy horror film Drag Me to Hell. The theory is that rather than being haunted by a real demon, Christine suffers from an eating disorder, one she’s had since she was a young farm girl. The proof is in the pudding, well, or, at least, it’s in the food. Every time something demonish happens, it’s food related, either taking place in the kitchen or something to do with mouths, such as vomiting into Christine’s mouth, which might be the funniest and equally disgusting scene in the movie. We know Christine was a chubby little girl, as seen in the picture which shows her as the “Swine Queen.” Even the demon, the Lamia, is a play on the Greek demon, a child-eating demon. When she sees an eye in her cake and it makes her sick, this is just Christine being haunted by her sickness, nothing more. True or not, this is a neat little theory to chew on.
