* PayEvilUntoEvil: Debatable. Depends on how repulsive you find an older man tricking young, ambitious, smart, gorgeous women who just want a shot at living their dream into lining up like cattle for the intent of taking emotional advantage of one of the distraught losers to get himself a wife.

Averted somewhat in the original novel as it's Aoyama's friend who comes up with the idea, and both of them also have the intention of making the movie they're auditioning for as well if they can secure the funding.

** That's ignoring, of course, the scene in which she's waiting for his call while something in a bag shifts besides her.

* SpoilerCover: The film disguises itself as a love story for its first half before its descent into horror, but its DVD cover prominently displaying its "love interest" playing with RazorWire and syringes completely ruins the GenreShift surprise.

* EyeScream: It involves acupuncture needles. That is all.

* BilingualBonus: Although "kiri kiri" is translated as "deeper, deeper" in the English subtitles and elsewhere as "cut cut", it is actually the Japanese onomatopeia for describing sharp pain. [[spoiler: Which Aoyama is in a lot of by that point.]]

* BittersweetEnding: [[spoiler: Aoyama's son, Shigehiko, manages to save his father from a horrific death at the hands of Asami, kicking her down a flight of stairs causing her neck to snap. Unfortunately, Aoyama has suffered absolutely '''horrific''' torture, and the ending implies he may be just a tad crazy.]]

* GutPunch: The first 45 minutes could easily be mistaken for a romantic drama in which everything is slightly... off. Then we get Asami's EstablishingCharacterMoment.

* EnforcedMethodActing: For the scene where Asami [[spoiler: vomits into a dish and feeds it to the Bag Man, ''the vomit is real.'']] Eihi Shiina [[spoiler: ''insisted'' on actually vomiting [[VomitDiscretionShot (offscreen, thankfully)]] for the scene.]]
