Yes! I would even venture to say, sleep paralysis sufferer. One thing that SP folks say is they often have a weird feeling in the evening before they have an experience, and sometimes a premonition or synchronicity. After the doorbell, he falls asleep in the chair. Classic hypnagogic vision power move! And the description of Marley approaching is so resonate with many SP intruder visions -- the shuffling footsteps, the dragging sounds (of chains in this case), the focus on the doorway as liminal zone/boundary. I think Dickens was drawing from personal experience and that’s one reason the story resonates still today
