* BigBadEnsemble: There's Dr. Vinnie Donatti (a PsychoPsychologiat who'll do anything to end smoking), Mr. Cressner (a mob boss prone to DisproportionateRetribution) and a monster tormenting a little girl. Since this is an anthology, they never meet each other or even appear outside their individual stories.

* NeverendingTerror: The segment featuring an anti-smoking group run by TheMafia from which, once you become a member of, can ''never'' leave. They will watch you '''forever''', you will need to follow their instructions on clean living to the letter, and if you ever so much as ''think'' of disobeying an order, they will torture your family, [[ForcedToWatch force you to watch]], and they will charge you for the torture's implements (like [[ElectricTorture electricity]] on their monthly membership bill. Or start dismembering them bit-by-bit, starting with the fingers.

* ShockingSwerve: Thankfully averted in the final segment. The original planned ending was to reveal that [[spoiler:General was EvilAllAlong, and he kills Amanda by stealing her breath,]] which would have turned his entire arc into a nonsensical ShootTheShaggyDog story.

* ATasteOfTheirOwnMedicine: In "The Ledge" segment, a crime boss with a fondness for gambling knows that his wife is having an affair with another man. He kidnaps the man and makes him an offer: if he successfully [[ThePrecariousLedge navigates the very tiny ledge]] outside his penthouse apartment, he gets his wife and a briefcase full of money; if not, he'll be framed for drug possession. The protagonist wins the bet after several close calls, only for the boss to [[spoiler:give him the money and [[DecapitationPresentation his wife's head]].]] This enrages him so much that after taking out his guard, he makes the boss the same offer to navigate the ledge in exchange for his life. He's not so lucky and falls to his death pretty quickly.



* WhoWritesThisCrap: A character played by James Woods complains "Who writes this crap?" while watching Creator/DavidCronenberg's adaptation of Creator/StephenKing's ''Film/TheDeadZone'' on TV. King wrote the screenplay for ''Cat's Eye''.
