** Sometimes, it does this in a way that's very jarring. For example, when Baranabas finds a group of hippies, he grows to really enjoy being in their company, and opens up to them about his problems and feelings. The hippies, in response, are very supportive and nice to him, more than anyone else has been up until then, and Barnabas seems happier than he's ever been since he woke up in that century. [[spoiler:Then he simply tells them that despite enjoying his time with them, he has to kill them all, and proceeds to do just that.]] It may be PlayedForLaughs, but it easily comes off as terrifying, even sad, that he would suddenly just do that to people that he had been bonding so well with.

* DiegeticSwitch: The restoration of Collinwood and the family business is accompanied by a "Top of the World" soundtrack by the {{Carpenters}}. The scene eventually switches to a Collinwood TV set showing Karen Carpenter performing the song. Aghast, Barnabas attacks the TV, crying out, "Reveal yourself, tiny songstress!"

Added DiffLines:

* DecoyProtagonist: The film starts off with Victoria on the train to he new job, and it appears she'll be one of the main characters. In fact she plays an extremely ancillary role to the plot of the film.
