In the movie Obsessed Beyonce’s character turns into a demon in order to protect her family from the psychotic woman that is tearing them apart. This ties into Sandra Gilbert and Susan Gubar’s article, “The Madwoman in the Attic”. “All women were inexorably and inescapably monstrous, in the flesh as well as in the spirit”. Although Beyonce’s character is represented as the “angel” in the movie, she brings out her monstrous side to kill the woman that is obsessed with her family. Therefore her character’s possesses attributes of both angel and monster, because she must step in as the protector, but by doing so she must kill the other woman that is coming between her and her family.
