Aditio,1 Paranormal Activity 3 The movie that is titled Paranormal Activity 3 is an extremely interesting movie. I think that it tells story of a demon who wanted to marry one of the little girls, namely Kristi. Considering the end of the movie, it ultimately got what it wanted as all the obstacles on this way were removed. One of the main characters, Dennis, is a boyfriend of the mother of girls, Julie. It is said in the movie that he has his own business of taking videos of weddings, editing them and selling to the clients. There is no doubt in the fact that his occupation is quite important of the plot of the movie: he has access to various equipment and necessary knowledge to set appropriate surveillance over his family. I think that he is not married to Julie because he is too young and he does not belief that marriage itself can reinforce the relationship between the people. He might see proof of that on his work. Toby is the main antagonist of the movie, so to speak. To begin with one should point out that it is a ghost – this is what defines his nature. In addition to that, it manifests itself is a poltergeist which means that it is responsible for creating disturbances in the house of the main characters. Keeping in mind some cruel actions that were done by him, one might conclude that he is also a demon. The reason why it plays trick on people is because it haunts them in order to scare (Montell 140). There is one point when it scratches Randi, a friend of Dennis, and this wound is clearly supernatural as it can not be explained logically. The movie does not say a lot about biological father of the girls; however, I think that he does not call them because his wife and their grandmother killed him. Speaking of the latter, her Aditio,2 name is Lois. She wants her daughter Julie to have a son since that is the part of the system of beliefs of the witch coven that she is a part of (Ehrenreich and English 44). At the end of the movie, one might see that Grandma Lois allows Toby to kill her daughter and marry her granddaughter – that is who devoted to the coven she is. Considering the reasons why Toby stalks the babysitter, one might point out that it saw her as an obstacle that could damage its plans, so it was ready to scare her away. The reason why it put on the sheet is largely focused on the fact that prior to that scene, the babysitter put on the sheet too, pretending to be a ghost, so Toby was kind of ironic. There is no particular explanation why it appears to be roughly three feet in height, though Kristi, the only person who actually saw it, describes him as very tall; probably, it found being tall a more suitable appearance to present to the little girl to win her heart. Finally, Katie cannot remember anything of the events that are depicted in the film because of the defense mechanism of abnegation (Freeman 153).

The Babadook Movie.

In the film The Babadook, Amelia is grieving the death of her husband, and she cannot get
past it (Kent, 2014). She is in a state of confusion and is still trying to get over her husband's death.
She cannot seem to get over her husband's death as through her son, and she is daily reminded of
a person that she used to love. Together with her son, Sam, he always asks her if she thinks about
his father when he died. This intrigues several flashbacks of him, and this doesn't settle well with
Amelia. She often gets depressed, and it affects the relationship that she has with her son. While
she cannot blame Sam, it is always a constant reminder that he will remind him of her husband.
There are instances where she has resentments towards her son. Doing so would affect the
relationship that they have together as she is still in the grieving process. By itself, the movie is a
