Run Rabbit Run ending explained

Run Rabbit Run ending spoilers follow.

Sarah Snook is a world away from Shiv in her latest movie Run Rabbit Run, which is now available to watch on Netflix.

Snook plays Sarah (not a meta version of herself), a fertility doctor whose daughter Mia (Lily LaTorre) starts to act strangely, claiming she’s actually Sarah’s sister Alice (Sunny Whelan) who went missing when she was seven years old.

Nothing Sarah does seems to snap Mia out of it, even taking her to see her grandmother Joan (Greta Scacchi) for the first time. Joan doesn’t help matters by thinking Mia is Alice as a result of her dementia.

But the shit really hits the fan when Sarah takes Mia to her childhood home, leading to a devastating revelation and an unsettling ambiguous finale. So if you’re confused about what really happened to Mia and Alice, we’re here to help.

Major spoilers ahead as we delve into the ending of Run Rabbit Run to (try to) explain it all.


Run Rabbit Run ending explained: What happened to Mia?

When they get to Sarah’s childhood home, Mia continues to act strangely, insisting that she sleep in Alice’s room as “it’s my room”. When Sarah tells Mia about Alice, Mia responds: “I’m back, I’m your sister.”

According to Sarah, she fought a lot with her sister, who liked animals and would bring back strays to look after them. Mia’s strange behaviour started when a mysterious rabbit appeared at their house which Mia insisted she keep, suggesting that maybe she has a bit of Alice in her.

Sarah says that Alice liked to play hide-and-seek which leads to a dramatic change in Mia as she responds: “I don’t like hide-and-seek, you don’t look for me. You don’t like me. You make me hide and hide and hide. You make me hide all day. You don’t want to find me. You lock me in. I hate you.”

Late one night, as she did earlier in the movie, Sarah sees Mia’s head bleeding and attempts to cut back her hair to see where the injury is. Mia fights back and it leads to Sarah unwittingly cutting Mia’s arms, and when she looks back at Mia’s head, the bleeding isn’t there.


Sarah continues to imagine things and when she’s in the barn behind the house, she hears a banging coming from behind a locked door. Alice jumps out and starts attacking Sarah, before Sarah hits Alice in the head with an old rabbit trap, and Alice disappears.

Mia is watching this all unfold and runs back into the house, Sarah chasing after her. Sarah knocks herself out attempting to get into Alice’s room, and in flashback, we see what really happened to Alice.

Sarah did hit Alice in the head with the rabbit trap, leading to the bleeding we saw Sarah imagining on Mia’s head. Sarah then chased her sister down and pushed her off the cliff to her death.

When Sarah wakes up in the morning, Mia is missing and her ex-husband Pete (Damon Herriman) has arrived in a panic. They search for Mia and it’s suggested that maybe Sarah did to Mia what she did to Alice, especially when she sees a body floating in the lake.

However, it’s all in Sarah’s head and Mia is found safely under a nearby bush. Later that night, Sarah is holding Mia in bed and talks to her as though she’s Alice, telling her that she told their mother that she ran away. Alice calls her a monster and Sarah agrees: “I’m a monster.”


Once Sarah is asleep, Mia sees the rabbit in the doorway and follows it. The following morning, Mia isn’t in the house and Sarah looks out of the mirror to see Alice and Mia walking hand-in-hand to the same cliff that Sarah pushed Alice off.

Sarah frantically pounds on the window to get Mia to come back, and the movie cuts to black, leaving Mia’s fate ambiguous.

It’s left up to the viewer to decide what was actually real and what was just a manifestation of Sarah’s unresolved guilt and grief over what she did to her sister, including whether or not Mia really was being led to her death by Alice.

You could read it that the mysterious rabbit was Alice resurrected in bunny form, and the final moments are Alice punishing Sarah for what she did to her. As well as being the bunny, Alice’s spirit also took over Mia every time she spoke of being Alice.

Equally, this could have all been in Sarah’s head. Earlier in the movie, Mia spoke about how her grandfather said he’d come back as a pelican to “keep an eye” on Sarah. Combined with Sarah’s guilt, she could have manifested the idea that Alice had come back to haunt her for what she did.

In this instance, it’s possible the entire final sequence is in Sarah’s head after she confesses everything to ‘Alice’. It doesn’t quite explain how Mia sees the rabbit and follows it when Sarah is asleep, but maybe Sarah just has a vivid imagination and her nightmare is very detailed.

Ultimately it probably comes down to you how you want to view it and whether Sarah effectively doomed Mia to her fate the moment she pushed Alice off the cliff as a child.
