    Chris never did anything wrong; he was blackout drunk along with Josh. He never contributed to Hannah/Beth ultimate death.

    hey matpat, this video is suuuper old, but i guess i never got around to seeing it. from the point of someone who suffers from abulatory schizophrenia, the way you put my mental illness made me really happy. most schizophrenics like me are seen as monsters and crazy killers. im literally just a 17 year old kid on a ton of meds, that's all!! i do have delutions and episodes where i simply can't function, but i would never be lead to hurt anyone. this video is amazing! thanks for not showing the holywood version of something that affects my life everyday.

    The true meaning of Until Dawn is Dr. Hill is a terrible doctor.

    Perfect description of Josh's schizophrenia. Until Dawn has one of the most beautiful depictions of untreated schizophrenia that I have ever seen in a video game. That said, nothing about what you said is a theory. The game makes it pretty clear that Josh has untreated schizophrenia if you pick up all the clues

    The bear trap trap was not for the teens, it was set by the flamethrower man, he set it for the wendigo

    Monsters that eat humans and kill them with ease while being really hard to kill are probably the true monsters

    I'm so glad I am not the only one who felt sorry for Josh.

    As a Paranoid Schizophrenic- as I know to believe when on my medications- this made me cry. Finally, someone who understands that I’m not a psychopath at heart. Someone who finally understands the value of love and care. I’m so done with people telling me to rot in an Asylum and to be treated by doctors like Doctor Hill. Josh was the only true character who I understand. The hallucinations (Psychosis), the behavior that I never remember doing... all of it.
    Thank you.

    Chris - Knocked out drunk.
    Sam - Said Hannah to come to the room but regretted it.
    Ashley - she was part of the prank but not like Jess or Mike.
    Matt - filming the prank
    Emily - Emily didn’t come up with the prank and honestly, knowing Emily, she would’ve said straight up to Hannah, HE IS MY MAN. And when Hannah ran away, you can see the regret on her face.
    Mike - was the main person who let the prank happen, he even acted like he liked Hannah
    Jess - she came up with the prank, and you can’t see her regret. In one of the chapters when she’s talking with Mike, she was like we didn’t even know that she would do a stupid thing like that. (Or was it Ashley and Chris?)
    Yeah so
    Not Guilty is Chris.
    Semi-Guilty is Sam, Ashley, Matt.
    Some category in between guilty and semi-guilty is Emily.
    And Guilty is Mike and Jess.

    What really makes me mad about the 'prank' is how they seem to think that just because they think it's a joke it's perfectly fine
    Someone at my school who I didn't know but is in a couple of my classes pulled a plastic bag over my head from behind without warning and he and his friend just kept saying that it was a joke as if that makes it ok to do to anyone especially someone they don't know
