* ChurchOfHappyology: "Welcome to [=MindHead=]! Welcome to [=MindHead=]! Welcome to [=MindHead=]!" Played with, as whatever their methods, [=MindHead's=] agents do seem genuinely concerned about Kit, and they're the only ones able to rein in Kit's raving eccentricities. If not for them, he'd likely be in a mental institution with all the paranoia he's coping with. [[spoiler: In the finale they put the pieces together and stage a rescue from the film crew GasLighting him.]]

* BadBadActing: Daisy's spastic, over-the-top performance, the bribed cop nearly forgetting his lines mid-take, Carol constantly ChewingTheScenery and pretty much everyone on camera save for maybe Kit Ramsey.

Added DiffLines:

* ActionGirl: Daisy's character does most of the fighting in the movie while Kit's character just looks scared and confused. And as far as we can tell, [[HypercompetentSidekick she's the one doing all the real work in staving off the alien invasion]].
