Added DiffLines:

** Minor example with the father: kid tries to protest his comic book being tossed in the garbage? Slap him and order him to be quiet or ''else''.


Added DiffLines:

* FantasyForbiddingFather: The father in the wrap-around story, to an abusive degree (he even thinks it's his God-given right to slap his kid!).

** How the movie ends: you father throws away your comic book? [[spoiler:Just straight up '''''murder him''''' with a voodoo doll! (He wasn't a good dad though, his wife will probably not miss him at all.]]

* NiceGuy: Hank, the only one in the Grantham house hold to be an in law. Unlike his wife and her sister, who are absolute snobs, he doesn't do or say anything malicious or morbid.

* RoaringRampageOfRevenge: Subverted, somewhat. Nathan Grantham doesn't so much come back from the dead to get revenge as he does to just get his darn cake. We say "somewhat" because [[spoiler: he settles for Bedelia's ''head''.]]
