Men Movie Ending explained
After the scary incidences, Harper saw the policeman in the yard changing into the young boy she met as the light flickers. She defends herself with the help of a knife and a window also breaks. But Geoffrey told her that the window broke due to a crow. Going into the yard, Geoffrey turns into the naked man and started chasing her again. Harper stabs his arm. The boy and the priest also appeared with the same injury after this. While the priest was harassing her, she stabs him and drives away.
Following the car crash, the naked man approaches Harper with severe injuries turning back to back to all the men she witnessed over there. He finally turns into James. Harper asks him what he wants and he answered that he wants her love. She refuses. Riley comes over there after some time and Harper was smiling in the yard.
The men harassing Harper symbolize the blames on women for all the activities of men. This was Harper’s mind which was not letting her move on and was making her feel guilty for the things she was not responsible for. The smile at the end suggests that Harper has now come beyond to the other peaceful end after facing all the trauma.
