These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
Complete Monster: James Blackwood for locking his deformed child in his basement for years. Of course, this depends a bit on whether there really is a curse or not. If so, locking his son in the basement may have been the best thing Blackwood could have done. This doesn't excuse the behaviour of his friend Christopher Milton, though, who apparently kept the kid alive down there for years before he started believing in the curse himself.
Nightmare Fuel: Oh boy... the dreams, the crypt, the soundtrack and the ending.
