Sutter’s ghost could represent a lot of things in the play, but to me there is only one that stands out the most. The piano. Sutter’s ghost is haunting the Charles’ house throughout the play. We know that the Charles’ are not just imagining him because when Grace goes to the house, she senses him too. She says, “Something ain’t right here.
Any place can be haunted, which means that a haunted house can look as new as a hospital or as old as a cabin. “Oral tradition (especially stories told by adults) encompasses many other types of haunted houses—ranging from suburban, split-level ranch houses to fraternity houses to businesses and so on. This variety of setting is appropriate because oral tradition holds that any structure in which a ghost appears is thereby haunted.” (Grider 147). In the Haunting of Hill House, every character has a different perspective on Hill House. For example, Dr. Montague sees the house as a simple run-down family home, in the name of science he is trying to prove that the house has no real phenomena happening inside of it.
They claim the house was haunted, but it looked okay to me, so…. When I first saw the house it didn’t look as bad. There were rumors about everyone should go to the house during Halloween and that a old scary couple lived there and no one has ever seen them. The rumor is pretty dumb when you think about it. It sounds like every story in every scary movie so it’s hard to believe it or not.
Staring, I slowly turn around to look at the houses on my street. Crashed walls, shattered windows, and flames, is all I see. “Please,” I whisper, hopefully praying to myself, “please let our house be the one that is still in one piece.” I turn back and look at our house. It’s on fire. I close my eyes and whisper “No please just let this be a dream, let all of
I was about 10 years old when I went in my second haunted house ever in Dubuque, Iowa. It was a huge building made out of dark wood and metal. Although it’s appearance was scary, I wasn’t very scared because I went to one in Clear Lake, and I didn’t get scared at all. In fact, I felt brave because my 8 year-old brother, Zack, was scared and I wasn’t. Zack was taking it way too literally as he always did.
The constant questioning of what was happening in the house is why the novel was frightening. Much of the fear was from the descriptions of the house such as: sick, disgusting, and cold. These descriptions made the house all more frightening because the reader shaped the house from their own fears. The novel does not sway the reader into believing what the reason for the hauntings like the film does. The movie has a time limit, that the novel does not which makes the novel go more in depth on the characters and
INTRODUCTION An evil house, the kind of some people call haunted is like an undiscovered country waiting to be explored. Hill House has stood by itself for eighty years and might stand for eighty more. The walls standing straight, bricks neatly, floors firm and the doors sensibly closed; silence lay steadily against the wood and stone of Hill House, and whatever walked there, walked alone. The whole story is about four people who ventured to spend their summer in the Hill House: Dr. John Montague who has taken his degree in anthropology is a doctor of philosophy wants to analyze supernatural demonstrations. He rented Hill House for three months and expected to work upon the psychic disturbances in the house commonly known as “haunted”.
The furnitures were quite old, but it was better than my old house. Then, a deafening, deep sound rang and shook the room.Quickly and nervously, I ran down the stairs to see what happened. I asked my mom about the loud sound, but my mum said there were no sounds and I was just hallucinating. I ran out of the house hurriedly and frightenedly. Because of the weird things that have just all happened, I decided to have a walk near the pond at the back of my house for relaxation.
As I flashed back to that day I walk in the house watching every step that I took. I walked up the stairs looking back down at the scary room of clowns. I get up stairs and there are two doors one is red and one is green. I walk towards the green door and I turn the door knob and open the door quickly. The room is filled with spiders which I am also afraid of.
The girl exclaimed, “My story is set in the year 1978”. She then began to build a mystery. SECTION THREE - (Third Couple) Chapter 2 - The Haunted House The house I was inside of was haunted. It was old and run down. There were spider webs in every corner of each room.
