* SomethingCompletelyDifferent: ''Film/{{Starman}}'' may come as a surprise to anyone who is familiar with most of his films as it is the most light-hearted work of his whole career. It is mostly devoided of the violent and bleak thematics commonly seen in his other movies, despite it occasionally feature moments where the pacifist alien played by Creator/JeffBridges learns about the darker aspects of human condition.
** ''Film/BigTroubleInLittleChina'' is a goofy, light-hearted action movie parody.

* CorruptChurch: Not so much "corrupt" as harboring a dark and terrible secret. ''TheFog'' has a Catholic priest's ancestor also a priest who had a hand in the death of Blake and his men, the church in ''PrinceOfDarkness'' has {{Satan}} itself [[SealedEvilInACan sealed in a container]] in its basement, which a sect known as the Brotherhood of Sleep has been keeping secret for a long time. Finally, JohnCarpentersVampires has Jan Valek, the MonsterProgenitor of the vampire race, whose creation was caused by a failed reverse exorcism sanctioned by the Catholic Church. Also, Cardinal Alba [[spoiler:made a deal with Valek to be turned after the ceremony, thus playing this trope straight.]]

** ''Film/PrinceOfDarkness'' happens over the span of a single day in a church with obviously working electricity. It was inspired by Nigel Kneale's The Stone Tape, which features key scenes set in small (admittedly dark) room filled with scientists, scientific equipment and haunted by a non-physically-threatening supernatural entity. And it's still terrifying.
