Things Heard and Seen

Movie • 2021 • Horror  

Report
Catherine Clare reluctantly trades life in 1980 Manhattan for a remote home in the tiny hamlet of Chosen, New York, after her husband George lands a job teaching art history at a small Hudson Valley college. Even as she does her best to transform the old dairy farm into a place where young daughter Franny will be happy, Catherine increasingly finds herself isolated and alone. She soon comes to sense a sinister darkness lurking both in the walls of the ramshackle property—and in her marriage to George.

Lemony
The husband is a monster who abuses the wife emotionally, mentally, financially, and physically. He gaslights, belittles, and berates her. He pathologically lies to her (and others) about everything. He actively isolates her from others by having moved her away from her surroundings, and by trying to sabotage her new friendships. He physically grabs her, attacks her, and wounds her face in doing so. He drugs her to the point of unconsciousness in order to murder her. He also views their daughter as his property, as an extension of his 'mask' to the outside world; he isn't seen abusing the daughter, but be aware.

(SPOILER) The husband spends the entire movie convincing his wife she's losing her mind, even though all of her suspicions turn out to be correct.

Not in a traditional, chronic sense. But, the couple's four year old child is nearby sometimes when the husband and wife are abusive towards each other. There is one scene near the end where it is implied the child has been drugged to fall asleep. Another scene where the mother is drugged and trying to find the child, but her abusive husband has hidden her.

There's bulimia - a compulsion that the person suffers from every day and hides from everyone. I think it's akin to an addiction.

No, and the earlier commenter is incorrect: a crow indeed flies through a window, but remains alive, then gets out through the same window again and appears completely unphazed by the whole ordeal (at 1:29:00).

Hmm, sort of? Someone's actions are heavily influenced by a perisistent ghost's voice, to the point where it almost seems as if the person is doing things against the person's own will. It's hard to say how much free will is involved.
