* NeverTrustATrailer: The controversial advertising campaign included a series of posters suggesting a female character's kidnapping, torture, and murder (or execution). [[spoiler:Jennefer actually survives the ending.]]

Added DiffLines:
* AlternateEnding: Released on DVD, the alternate ending reveals that [[spoiler:the man being tortured and killed with a hammer in the opening scene is revealed (through press clippings) to be a three-time murderer of women; his assailant is revealed to be Jennifer.]] * CorruptTheCutie: [[spoiler: Jennifer escapes, but not before killing Ben, one of the detectives, and leaving Gary to die. The AlternateEnding above even suggests she becomes a KnightTemplar who hunts and kills people like him.]]

Added DiffLines:
* DoYouWantToCopulate: One of the most bizarre scenes in the movie; [[spoiler:after failing to escape with Gary (believing he's another prisoner), she thinks he's injured and tries to help him, and some odd reason, the two have sex. (Fully consensual.) WTF?]]

Added DiffLines:
* LimaSyndrome: [[spoiler:A very, very dark variant. Gary claims to be in love with Jennifer, and kills his brother - or tries to - in order to protect her, then later claims she belongs to him. She doesn't appreciate it.]]

Really gross victim-blaming.
* HellbentForLeather: Jennifer wears a sexy leather skirt in one scene. We even have her bending over so that we can get a great look at her ass.

* MsFanservice: Jennifer. Any wonder why the kidnapper abducted her?
