    In the 4000-6000 Hertz range, Venom and Riot becomes unstable and starts to retract from Eddie to get away from the noise, and Eddie (and Carlton) suffers with them. This could be in a sense a sensory overload, which is very common in people with mental illness. Especially with loud or awful continuous noises.
    Eddie doesn’t really get any sleep. You could chalk it up to having literal militia level agents trying to detain and murder Eddie, or in Carlton’s case experimenting on him, but if we’re going with the idea that Venom can cause schizophrenia, it’s not uncommon for schizophrenics to stay awake for one reason or another. (Or even for mentally ill people to develop insomnia)
    Eddie is also suffering from major depression, and there’s actually a form of psychosis known as PTSD-Induced Psychosis. Sure, Eddie isn’t abused or facing life and death everyday but he loses everything in one day. It’s his fault of course, but that doesn’t change that he’s a rattled man. Could also explain why Venom and Eddie get along pretty quick. Eddie probably already had a few psychotic episodes over the course of the few months in the movie. (Same goes to Carlton. He was a sadistic man with a god complex. Of course he’d have some form of psychosis)
    The comedic scene of Eddie in the restaurant with Dan and Anne is pretty much a great example of a mental breakdown to the umpth degree, especially when you consider the mixture of confusion and aggressive behavior. Even the hunger makes sense to me because for a lot of people, when they breakdown they eat like pigs.
    Eddie also seems to have issues with alcohol. It’s not outright but it’s implied via him drinking at the bar after the scene of him and Anne breaking up. It could be possible that’s been his coping mechanism and it fucked up his mental state.
    In short
    Although I don’t think Venom is a villain or a parasite, I can see why one draws those conclusions and why you would correlate the cat parasite to Venom via the schizophrenia link. That said, I like this theory. But in a “I think this fun” way not “This is informative”. Thought I’d point out those things though :)

    Anyone that knows anything about Marvel already knows that the symbiotes aren't aggresive. They only enhance the emotions humans already have and the specific symbiote Venom took on a lot of its traits from aggresive humans its fused with previously.

  • Gercho-San Andrade

    The original venom is actually a little unstable because he has Peter's mind mixed within itself, and then when it attach to Eddie it adds to the mixture, specially because Eddie is also unstable. That's the mind of the symbiote, a mixture of Peter and Eddie.

    Venom is and will always be a simbiot, but you are saying that he is a parasite, it’s like you are saying that an apple is a pare! He is a simbiot that’s needs to feed on his host because he doesn’t have the nutrition to survive and support his host and he is putting the host in danger because he is in a new environment, it’s like you put a human in space! and what was the problem? 0G and solar radiation and the limited food amount! Venom needs to learn to survive in the new environment and the new nutrition and to the host!
    Venom is killing the host not because he is a parasite (he is a simbiot) he is trying to survive! What happened to your body when you eat nothing for 1 month? The brain is trying to survive!
    In the restaurant he went in the acuarium with lobsters and venom try to force feed the host and at his house he tried to eat food that was in the bind!
    So venom is a simbiot!!!

    Never considered venom a villain from my understanding it mostly derives from the host. Carnage for example, his host was a full blown serial killer which i get the symbiotes are there to take over originally but they're also sentient and can in a sense be persuaded to match the goals of their host. Without the host they die so I guess you could say they're co dependant and it all derives from the host and symbiotes goals and which of the two is stronger I guess idk
