* LostForever: While not ''lost'' in the same way as, say, ''London After Midnight'', Waters refuses to release his first three movies in any format, and they have not appeared since their original showings. This may be in part due to their presentation; ''Roman Candles'', for example, consists of three separate reels of footage shown on three screens simultaneously, without sound, as a separate audio recording plays. This isn't something you can replicate on a DVD player (he did have ''Roman Candles'' transferred to videotape in the 1980s, using a 4-panel split screen, with one screen left blank, which he has shown at festival and academic screenings).

Waters's films all [[CreatorProvincialism take place in Baltimore]], are [[RefugeInAudacity packed with as much sleaze as possible]], and [[CrossesTheLineTwice celebrate trashy Americana]], with [[{{Camp}} awful fashion and gaudy designs]] featured prominently. He also has a [[ProductionPosse regular group of actors]], chief among them the late [[{{DragQueen}} drag performer]] Divine.

** He has gone on record as saying he ''does'' regret killing the chickens in ''Mondo Trasho'', since he just left them in the gutter to rot.

* NoAnimalsWereHarmed: Averted. Several chickens are decapitated in ''Mondo Trasho'', and a chicken is raped and crushed to death in ''Pink Flamingos''. Regarding the latter, he said:
-->"Animal rights activists always say to me 'How could you kill a chicken for a movie?' Well, I eat chicken, and I know the chicken didn't land on my plate from a heart attack. We bought the chicken from a farmer who advertised freshly-killed chicken. I think we made the chicken's life better. It got to be in a movie, got fucked, and then right after filming the next take, the cast ''ate'' the chicken."
