Why is lockwood's night at Wuthering Heights disturbing?

The first night Lockwood spends at Wuthering Heights he experiences a "nightmare."

Lockwood chooses Catherine Earnshaw's old room in which to sleep. He looks at the desk which has the names, "Catherine Earnshaw," "Catherine Heathclif," and "Catherine Linton" inscribed. (Catherine's different names in her life, and when read backwards young Cathy's names in her life)

Lockwood later hears something from the window, and assumes branches from the tree. When he reaches out ice cold hands grab his hands. They pull him and the ghost yells "Let me in! Let me in!" This is the ghost of Catherine (the older one).

It is ambiguous whether this was Lockwoods' dream, or a true event.

Lockwood screams and runs from the room. Then, Heathclif scolds him for being in "that" room. Lockwood goes to find a new room.

His night is disturbing because his interaction with Catherine's ghost was frightening.

What is the tone and mood of Wuthering Heights?

Wuthering Heights is a prototypical novel of the Romantic (with a capital R) period. That does not mean that it is a "romantic" novel, although it certainly is a very passionate love story. Google for the characteristics of a Romantic (with a capital R) era novel. For my money there is not much difference between tone and mood. If I recall correctly they appear in a list of half a dozen literary characteristics, don't they?

WH belongs to a category of literature that in German becomes Sturm und Drang (storm and stress.) I would definitely say that captures the mood.

Wuthering Heights according to feminist and marxist criticism?

A feminist critic would argue that most of Wuthering Heights if founded on the oppression that women in this era suffered. Catherine is an example of a character greatly exploited by the in built male ideologies present in her society. She is left to make a tireless decision between Edgar and Heatchliff, and in both their eyes she is a mere symbol of love.
