Scottie was put through a lot; manipulation, and witnessed two deaths, one being a loved one. The scene where he was in the hospital showed that he was mentally unstable because of guilt and trauma, but after that is when it began to twist and turn. Every woman he saw that was blonde reminded him of Madeleine, and once he found Judy he was set on creating Madeleine’s perfection again. He was demanding, obsessive, and simple crazy. You begin to feel for Judy and forget that she was an accessory to murder and is the bad
Her mouth gagged. Needles sticking out from the skin on her chest and arms and legs.¨(Fahy, 219). Finding creepy pictures on the wall would be like getting a needle poked in your back, it sends a tingle, and spike of energy but, one is good, and the other is bad. But, one of the creepiest things that Allison saw in The Doctor’s house was Jade’s other chopped off hand. Another thing that I didn 't expect was when it turned out that the doctor was controlling Jacob and that The Doctor was actually the bad guy.
Catholics would flagellate, or cause themselves pain to make up for the sins of the people who coped with the Black Death epidemic. Though, the monks, instead of whipping themselves as abuse, they would hit themselves in the head with a wooden board as they walked through the village. Also, in the Catholic Church, sisters could be nurses and care for the sick and injured, but when a knight approaches castle Anthrax, he is bombarded with care from the sisters. The movie Monty Python and The Holy Grail gives the audience a very comical way of looking at the Middle Ages. While some points were exaggerated, other situations were completely different from the way life was.
In the movie, “Johnny Got His Gun,” Johnny's flashbacks are from a combination of ether and the battle Johnny made it through. His head is very messed up and injuries are very bad. Because of these nightmares, they bring him flashbacks. It is on account that his injuries are so bad that remembering home and his girl are his ways of coping. His first flashback is of having conversations with his girl.
She hears scratches on the window, she finds strange sightings around the house, and finally, she hears small voices who to her and tell her to do bad things. Sophie thinks the small little frozen charlotte dolls are doing it, but later she found out Piper was in on it with the dolls to hurt and kill people. Even though Piper goes farther than Julian. Julian and Piper think about things the same way. For this matter, I think
“Ashes, ashes, time to go down” makes a reference to the children's playground game “Ring around the rosies” signaling to the black plague, darkening the sense of death by showing that not everything is sweet and innocent, including death. The effect on the read is that there is an opposite to everything due to lullaby’s are meant to be sung from adult to children but in the song it is the child singing to the adult that she is tired of putting up with everything the adults have done for
Within a society with very strong puritan ideals, the Devil is renowned for his cruel reputation. His reputation is often correlated with trauma, death and confusion and his name summons immediate fear among the townsfolk. As the Putnams conclude that there are harmful spirits among their children, Mrs. Putnam also proclaims how she “ha[s] laid seven babies unbaptized in… this year, my Ruth... shrivels like a sucking mouth were pullin’ on her life too”(15). Ultimately, the Devil’s power is manufactured by the residents of Salem, based on fear from unexplainable incidents. For Mrs. Putnam, having each of her seven babies passing away provokes her to accuse the Devil of being responsible.
In the movie, Scrooge seems more terrified of the spirits than he is in the book. In the book, when Jacob Marley leaves out his window, Scrooge sees a ghostly place where Jacob roams in torment, but in the movie he just sees Jacob leaving and fading out on an empty street. In the movie, there was more tone because of its technical parts which were the lighting, music, movements, etcetera. The music added more horror to each part than in the book. It seemed as though Scrooge was more horrified in the movie than he was in the book.
Lastly I will talk about the experiental and emotional dimension. The practices and rituals in voodoo might look scary to other people, because the person who the spirit is communicating with is in a trance state. The practices might also feel a bit dramatic and scary. People think that voodoo is all about putting curses or spells on people and sticking needless on voodoo dolls to hearth the other person. But the magic and dolls are used for blessing people.
Coming to the conclusion that Betty and Ruth have both been placed into a trance by the “Devil” and are disconnected with the outside world. Being the Devil’s first physical action against people, an immense amount of terror is manufactured. .This sickness then transforms into the first idea that the Devil is able “control” others, ultimately aiding his authority and command over the townsfolk. As well, in order to discover the truth, Parris and Putnam threaten Tituba with death. After listening to such violent repercussions, Tituba admits that she “don 't desire to work for him”(44) though implying contact between the Devil and herself.
Judges forced the suspected witches to undress down to their undergarments in public and were examined for marks. These marks consisted of blemishes, birthmarks, moles, and even scars. The community believed these marks were the Devil’s way into a person 's body. Many individuals in the village went as far as scratch, freezing, and burning marks off of their bodies to be innocent. The judges would also bring in experts called Pickers.
