* FreudWasRight - Many of Leslie's claims about the final battle between a slasher and his survivor girl revolve around phallic and yonic symbolism. For example, he claims that when the survivor girl fights back with a long, hard weapon, she's "empowering herself... [[CompensatingForSomething with cock]]."

* WeaponOfChoice: Though he uses some other tools here and there, most of Leslie's kills are performed with a handheld scythe.

Added DiffLines:

* StartOfDarkness: Both played straight and played with. The movie is one for Leslie, while Leslie's "backstory" of a young boy forced to cut grass for his abusive parents several decades ago is a fabricated one.

** The anti-bruising jelly Leslie puts on to reduce lacerations and bleeding is also flame retardant.

* DoingInTheWizard: While horror icons like Freddy,Jason, and Meyers exist the movie indicates that they're regular human beings instead of supernatural slashers of their respective franchises.

* Fanservice: [[DiscussedTrope Discussed]] and [[DeconstructedTrope deconstructed]], like everything else. When Leslie is going over the plan for the climactic "teen party" scene, there's an extreme close-up of one of the teen's bare breasts. The image actually pauses, while Taylor asks "Isn't that a little gratuitous?" Leslie simply replies, completely deadpan, "Who's telling this story, you or me?"
