Good stuff! What makes this a good movie was the interesting and unique story of a Christmas figure we 're aware of but never really cared to dwell too much on. But what makes this a great movie is the uncertainty you feel for the family as they are picked off one by one. Even with all the horror and mayhem it 's still a Christmas movie right? In the end you 're rooting for it all to be a dream Max is having...or maybe that Horror fan in you want 's an ending of heartache and doom!
The spirit who is there to show him his past joyous Christmases, is also literally lighting the way. The third spirit is contrary to the first, being a source of darkness and fear. When meeting the spirit Scrooge felt its mere presence and was taken aback as he “bent down upon
Wiesel uses a lot of very detailed descriptions and expresses his feelings in a way that we easily start to trust him. He knows that this is one of the most terrible periods in the history and he tries “to help prevent history from repeating itself” (Wiesel VII). “He does not want his past to become [the children’s] future” and that is why he writes his book to be seen by the people who do not realize how poorly people were treated (Wiesel XV). These two quotes from Night show that the holocaust shouldn’t be repeated. The author shows this with all of the feelings, facts and descriptions he uses.
These thoughts driven by the ID are the most predominate thoughts in his mind leading him to his acts of trying to ruin Christmas. His Id is his animal-self wanting the destruction of Christmas with such a great desire that he doesn’t take into account the feelings of the Whos. His superego seems to be “agreeing” with the Id and completely overlapping his conscience. By the end, he says, “Maybe Christmas doesn't come from a store,” which is a sign that he understands the true meaning of Christmas. As he gained insight into his wish for destruction, his unconscious motives became conscious.
For clinical psychologist James Houran (2004), those who are convinced that they are in a haunted house are most likely to feel all that we attribute to the presence of a ghost. The curling of the curtain, a subtle grit on the floor boards, are fearsome noises. The person slowly feels the agitation and anxiety growing and becomes more vulnerable to fallacy. According to Wiseman, the scientific studies confirm the theory of Houran (2004), since, as his experience has taught him, those who believe in ghosts say they have experienced more bizarre experiences than those who doubt it. The best test of the self-hypothesis theory is to put someone susceptible to the idea of ghosts in a house after we say that it is haunted.
As he aged he became more bitter and cross with world. All this makes for an awfully tragic tale, but everyone knows how this story ends.

In this story we see an example that it's never too late to change for the better.
“No space of regret can make amends for one’s life opportunity misused.” An author’s impression can be portrayed by the characters he or she has written about.

Scrooge being the stubborn critic he is, would need quite the presentation to convince him he needs a change. By demonstrating to Scrooge his past, present, and future Christmases. Dickens showed that with power, passion, and humility even the most temperamental people can change.
In Chapter two of Edelman ‘No Future’ (2004) ‘sinthomosexulaity’, Edelman examines Ebenezer Scrooge in the Christmas Carol (1843). Scrooge’s character plays no attention to the political economy of reproduction not following the normative social subjects. Scrooge becomes pressured by society in order to change which puts pressures on his queerness, Edelman expresses ‘Christmas here stands in the place of the obligatory collective reproduction of the Child, the obligatory investment in the social precisely as the order of the child’ (Edelman, 2004: 45). Thus, Edelman proposes that he supports the acts that Scrooge is making because he likes that he is anti-social and it is suggested that he goes as far as to praise Ebenezer Scrooge’s original
Banquo’s ghost 's presence is also ironic in the fact it is indiscernible to the reader whether the ghost was a supernatural being or a mere result of unrelenting guilt being personified. The death scene of Banquo served as a shift in theme as there is a transition between sanity to irrationality, while also signifying Macbeth’s moral metamorphosis. Banquo’s death is highly significant given it symbolized a turning point in the play. Shakespeare gave this scene intensity by adding internal conflict to Macbeth’s character, which in turn stressed the idea of a character shift and the theme of power struggles by showing how Macbeth’s mentality and morals were
