Added DiffLines:

* WoundThatWillNotHeal: After Madeline and Helen drink the immortality potion, they find any wound they suffer to be like this. They can't die, but their bodies can be severely damaged, which they discover only after suffering injuries that would have normally killed them, such as Madeline suffering a broken neck and Helen having a hole blown through her stomach with a shotgun. For all intents and purposes, they're ''zombies''; their souls are bound to their bodies forever, but since their bodies are clinically dead, they no longer have the ability to heal.

* BodyHorror: Many of the AmusingInjuries throughout the movie fall under this. Though mostly it's PlayedForLaughs, when you think about living with all of those injuries, artificially masked, forever. By the time of the movies ending, almost 40 years after the climax, both Mad and Hel are reduced to rotting corpses patching themselves up with paint and glue.

* ArtisticLicenseBiology[=/=]ArtisticLicenseEngineering: There's some {{Squick}} if you [[FridgeLogic think about it]]. Helen no longer has a spine to hold her upright where the hole was blown in her - but she continues to move as if she does. If the writers considered this the way the did Madeline's head, it would throw off the rest of the story, so it's just better to leave it be as presented in the film.

** AesopAmnesia: After hearing the touching euology about "living forever" (by being remembered by your loved ones), Helen and Madeline... completely miss the point, and deride him for not having achieved "true" immortality like them.

Added DiffLines:

* BrickJoke: Ernest mentions that since makeup doesn't properly adhere to dead skin, he has to use flesh-coloured spray paint on cadavers. [[spoiler: After being physically dead for 37 years, Mad and Hel need to carry some around to cover their decaying flesh. One of them drops some, which Hel trips on and takes Mad with her down a flight of stairs.]]


Added DiffLines:

* TheReveal: Mad and Hel show up at [[spoiler: Ernest's funeral wearing thick black veils. At first it seems like they're just trying to hide the fact that they're still physically 20-somethings despite being in their 70s, but when the veils come off, we see that their faces have been badly painted and look more disturbing than if they'd aged naturally.]]

* SpringtimeForHitler: Although Madeline's musical performance is mostly hated, it is precisely then that Ernest falls in love with her.
