Split Subject Voice - voices from the unconscious, schizophrenic voices, split personalities

My last category is The Split Subject Voice, usually in the first part of the film 1 voice is the main character and another is positioned as a close relation either a haunting etherial presence or an actual bodily person just out of shot. By the end of the film it is revealed that this voice is actually the consequence of a the main characters subjectivity - it is the ventriloquist and the dummy with the dummy off screen in many ways. Of the films I've posted so far I know that some fall easily within a category whilst other my move from one category to another as the film progresses and the horror unfolds. Here are a few examples:

Psycho (1963)

Sisters (1973)
