The story of The Haunting of Hill House is a horror classic. The book and movie depict this terrifying story in vastly different ways. The movie uses cinematic techniques that a book can not portray: music, acting, and props. The book uses imagery, internal monologue, and suspense to peak fear in the readers. Movies are a different way of portraying a story, but movies aren’t always able to depict everything in the book.
Sleep Paralysis Sleep Paralysis is a common sleep condition that causes people to be physically paralyzed while being mentally awake. Even though the symptoms were diagnosed over 300 years ago it was recently discovered that brain chemicals allow this to happen. While there are many theories over sleep paralysis that are influenced by cultures and religions, the Three Factor-Model is one that is validated by science. The dictionary defines sleep paralysis as a condition in which, upon waking, a person is aware of the surroundings but is unable to move. (The American Heritage Science Dictionary) When someone has experienced sleep paralysis they not only have the paralysis, they often have other symptoms that come along with it.

When the audience reads closely between the lines, they will find three mental illnesses that Lady Macbeth has, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, and Psychotic depression, and they can all be traced back to one thing: the night of Duncan’s murder. One common misconception about PTSD is that it happens exclusively to combat soldiers, but that is not always the case. Some major factors of PTSD in civilians include: “natural disasters, serious accidents, life-threatening illness, physical abuse, and sexual assault during childhood or adulthood” (Gay and Yusko). However, Lady Macbeth’s PTSD was brought about through the guilt of having participating in a crime. She is traumatized by her actions and she even feels guilty about the murder of Lady Macduff and her children, although she was not directly involved in it.
Psychoanalysis depends on the idea that people are unconscious of the numerous variables that cause their behaviour and feelings. These oblivious elements can possibly deliver misery, which thus is communicated through a score of discernable side effects, including aggravating identity attributes, trouble in identifying with others, or unsettling influences in self-regard or general manner. Sigmund Freud was the first psychoanalyst and a genuine pioneer in the acknowledgment of the significance of oblivious mental movement. His hypotheses on the internal workings of the human personality, which appeared to be so progressive when the new century rolled over, are currently generally acknowledged by most schools of mental thought. In 1896, Freud instituted the expression "therapy," and for the following forty years of his life, he dealt with altogether building up its fundamental standards, destinations, strategies, and technique.
Psycho, like most Hitchcock films, employs voyeurism in an effort to place a sense of involvement and culpability on the audience for events at hand. Although Psycho begins as a seemingly normal story of a woman attempting to take life into her own hands, things quickly take a sinister turn. Perhaps the most unconventional move seen in films to that point in time, Hitchcock utilizes a perspective shift midway into the movie. Generally, through a first-person perspective, viewers are forced to form an emotional attachment to the narrator. This is often accompanied by an uncontrollable urge to see them succeed, despite the immoral actions of some.
Victor Frankenstein, the protagonist in Frankenstein, and his creature have been subject to many different interpretations. Some of them including a psychoanalytic approach based on Sigmund Freud 's theory, others have compared them to other characters from mythological stories as, for example Oedipus. However, only a few have analyzed Victor as a narcissist. The DSM-5, the fifth edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, lists among others the following traits: exaggerated self-importance, embellished and overstated achievements, belief of superiority in regard to others and fixation of imagination of success and power, as symptoms of narcissism. In this paper, I will demonstrate how these symptoms apply to the depiction
Capgras Delusion is a is a disorder in which the sufferer feels as if a close family member, such as a parent, spouse, sibling, or pet, has been replaced by an identical imposter. There can be many causes for capgras delusion, but many scientists believe it is simply the failure of normal brain recognition processes, which can be caused by stroke, overdose, epilepsy, or many other causes. However. other scientists believe that it is caused by the damage of the right side of the brain. Both of these causes have been tested and proven that these could very well cause people to have capgras delusion.
The world thinks that prescribing medication for veterans is the secret cure to all of the PTSD issues, but this is one of the main causes of homelessness and unemployment amongst veterans.

In the video, Elan Saks talks about how she has schizophrenia and has went through treatment and therapy for it. Schizophrenia is a mental illness that has taken over multitude of people’s lives. She talks about loose association and two examples. The first example being the mind puts together several words that do not always make sense.

Because of this, the common thought was that affected people should be looked down upon or locked up. Consequently, most people with mental illnesses became homeless and poor, and many were committed to institutions called asylums (“Depression: Depression & Related Conditions,” n.d.). During the late 1700s and early 1800s, there were a variety of complex explanations for depression. People were unsure of what depression was, and for that reason, there were several attempts to try to explain what it was, although many had no idea (“Depression: Depression & Related Conditions,” n.d.). Some doctors and authors at this time suggested that aggression was the real cause of depression.
