So apparently Totoro is a death monster?
According to a fan theory found on Nerdist, the film My Neighbor Totoro may be about the death of two girls. The theory is actually pretty solid. It connects the events of the film with an urban legend about the deaths of two children. Now I haven't seen the film in a while, so it is entirely possible this writer may have really been picking and chosing his facts but it would make a lot of sense. Judge for yourself (if Nerdist's weird video player embeds in the page at all).
