Added DiffLines:

* KickTheDog:
** Angelique crosses the MoralEventHorizon by doing this, first by murdering Barnabas's parents, then Josette. And of course, continuing Barnabas's own suffering by turning him into a vampire and burying him alive.
** Angelique does this to the rest of the Collins family too, by ruining their fishery with her own, killing David's mother at sea, [[spoiler:turning Carolyn into a werewolf]], and then, [[spoiler:after they reopen their fishery, she destroys it again and turns the townspeople against them and Barnabas. Even though Barnabas ''did'' murder the construction workers, the hippies and Hoffman, he did not do it ForTheEvulz, as Angelique implies with her recording to the sheriff.]]
** Carolyn does this by mocking the fate of her dead aunt, David's mother, right in front of David. Elizabeth sends her to her room for it.


Added DiffLines:

* MissingMom: David's mother died at sea before the events of the film. Angelique was behind it.

* BigFancyHouse: Collinwood Manor was built to be one of these. It regains some of its charm in 1972 post-renovation.



** [[spoiler: Dr. Hoffman becoming a vampire : She's always wearing red and she's always thirsty.]]
** [[spoiler: After the transfusions begin she also stays away from the light and asks people to shut the curtains. She also gets noticeably paler, and when Barnabas bites her and she gasps in pain it's shown she has fangs.]]

** 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!"
