As Poe establishes fear through the narrator 's inner terror caused by the “eye of a vulture”, it inspired me to also create the perception of fear through the narrators paranormal experiences. This is identified as she describes the fright she endured as the monster possessed her body “His eyes locked with mine and his lethal stare into my soul pierced my heart as an evil smile that betrayed all innocence filled his face [...] paralyzed with fear, I could not command myself to function”.

The abnormal way in which these sexual anxieties are presented permits the discussion of these apprehensions. The supernatural renders Lucy inhuman — her twisted face resembles “The coils of Medusa’s snakes ” (Stoker 250) — and as such, the sexual and moral dangers she posits in her independence are punishable by the four men. The same men who once desired nothing more than her pure affections are those who persecute her to the grave, for Lucy now personifies the destructive morals of the transgressive female. The violence employed in their fight against the vampire, in addition to their destruction of Lucy’s egregious body, demonstrates that male anxieties and fears often transform into hatred towards that which questions their masculinity.
