The symbolism of Home Sweet Home

In this article, we are going to be diving into the symbolism of this 4 minute short film. First of all let’s jump right in to it by examining the house. A seemingly Normal looking home from the outside, but on the inside turns out to be something far more sinister than just your average haunted house.

For example the window that looks like an eye, refers to the paranoia that the character Emily feels on a daily basis, which is why it’s the main focus in this short film.

Next up, the house of course! Which clearly represents Emily’s mind and the horrors that lurk within its walls. And the people within these walls? Inner turmoil.

The third thing we will be looking into will be that disturbing corpse that pops out of the walls of her room towards the end, it represents how she sees herself, as a horrible person, so horrible that it even terrifies her when she looks at it. The only way for her to avoid seeing this however, is her medication.

And lastly, the voices on the phone symbolize her most disturbing thoughts.
