* KarmicDeath: [[spoiler: The Driver of the black car doesn't come after Marion. She's the only one of the characters that isn't at least implied to have some kind of moral failing: Richard seems to be the only one who knows Brad is attracted to men and implies that he either was or is cheating on Marion, Richard's a [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin dick]], Frank is self-righteous, stubborn, and apparently an alcoholic, and Laura had an affair that she claims resulted in Richard's (or Michael's) birth.]]

* SortingAlgorithmOfMortality: The film's concept seems to be this. [[spoiler: In the end, Marion survived the ordeal due to the fact she was the only one in the car that was ''at least'' stable and has some grounds of morals, compared to her implied gay boyfriend (who maybe was cheating on her), her dick brother, her egotistical father, and her mother's own affair]].

* [[spoiler: TheStringer: While it's assured at first that Marion simply had a traumatic nightmare following the death of her family at the titular dead end, the ending shows the woman in white and the black car (with it's driver nonetheless) having some discussion and the drivers allows her to get into the car with him to take her home. It makes the ending a lot more MindScrew-like]].
