While we aren't certain what awaits her upon entry, Hitchcock's personification of the house as a sort of evil rendering of mother's spirit only intensifies our disapproval of Lyla's entrance in the threshold of Norman's mind.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
