* HarbingerOfImpendingDoom: "The Harbinger" is even his ''job title'', and it is the part of the ritual he is supposed to fulfil; the group of sacrifices is supposed to make the choice go to their doom willingly, so his job is to give them a vague warning about strange and dangerous things happening the cabin, which the youngsters is supposed ignore because he just comes across as a somewhat unhinged, old man. Ironically, he also turns about to be the Harbinger for his co-workers, as he gravely warns them not to take their job too lightly, because they risk incurring the Ancient Ones' wrath by doing so, as well as of the fact that Marty is much smarter than he seems and could turn out to be a SpannerInTheWorks, but they just laugh at him and ignore his warnings. Mordecai turns out to be entirely correct about both things.

* NeutralEvil: There seem to be a few who kill not just ForTheEvulz but also because it benefits them on a pragmatic sense like the Witches and likely the Vampires.

* AcquiredPoisonImmunity: The chemistry-team forgot to account for his coffee-mug bong when they tried to lace his stash with the intelligence-dampening drugs. As a result, Marty was given only a minor dose of the drug, which allowed him to keep a clear head and build up some resistance against the mind-controlling drugs, leading to him gradually see through the Organization's deception.

* AcquiredPoisonImmunity: An example of this happening unintentionally. The Organization's chemistry-team forgot to account for his coffee-mug Marty's home-made bong (as it was disguised as a coffee mug) when they tried to lace his stash with the intelligence-dampening drugs. As a result, Marty was given a constant, but only a minor dose of the drug, which allowed him to keep a clear head and build up some resistance against the mind-controlling drugs, leading to him gradually getting more and more clear-headed and see through the Organization's deception.

* OnlySaneMan: Marty keeps cautioning the group against actions like reading the mysterious Latin. His pot-smoking has made him ProperlyParanoid as well as resistant to the mind-altering chemicals used by the villains - mainly due to a mistake on their part.

* WrongGenreSavvy: Although, even after encountering the Buckner zombies, Marty finds a hidden camera and concludes, "I'm on a reality TV show!" It's a JustifiedTrope in that he's on pot... and the control room actually ''treats'' the situation like a reality show.

%%* PunchClockVillain

to:

%%* PunchClockVillain* PunchClockVillain: The Organization as a whole. Pretty much all of its employees bare no ill-will whatsoever towards the unfortunate co-eds (at least until Marty and Dana begin to become a gradually more serious problem and then even an active threat to them) and, and in fact largely treat the whole situation with the same professional distance as pretty much any other average Joe would treat their boring day job. But that is not to say that the employees are entirely without scruples, in fact, it is made clear that they are all painfully aware that what they are doing is deeply DirtyBusiness, but they know it is the only way to keep the whole of humanity safe from the wrath of the Ancient Ones.
