* NeverendingTerror: TheLegionsOfHell are chasing after an [[TheAgeless ageless]] ChosenOne who carries a holy flask containing the blood of JesusChrist and previous Chosen Ones. The Chosen One must stay on the run from them, constantly moving and never slowing down too much for an instant or else, they get the flask and unleash HellOnEarth. [[spoiler:Also, the Chosen One bears a mark on his/her arm counting down how much time is left until they must make their LastStand, at which point they must face an onslaught of DemonicInvaders and then pass on the flask to the LoneSurvivor, who is the next Chosen One.]]

* NaziZombies: Kinda. Brayker kills a demonic German soldier in one of his flashbacks, and although the scene is set in WorldWarI, the choice to put the later stahlhelm on the German instead of the pickelhaube is invoking some Nazi-like imagery, as the stahlhelm is more associate with ThoseWackyNazis than the [[UsefulNotes/ImperialGermany Imperial Germans]].

Added DiffLines:

* UnusuallyUninterestingSight: In one of his flashbacks, before receiving the key and learning about the demons, Brayker seems pretty unperturbed that he and Dickerson were set up by German soldiers with glowing eyes and clawed fingers, and that green light shoots out of their eyes when they die. He just talks about them having "lured us into an ambush" as though they were ordinary human enemy soldiers.


Added DiffLines:

* UsefulNotes/WorldWarI: One of Brayker's flashbacks takes place during this conflict.

** And of course, this being a ''TalesFromTheCrypt'' production, we get a wraparound featuring the Crypt Keeper, an animatronic entity that somehow manages to be the largest ham in the history of television.

* BigBad: [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]], in that The Collector pursues the primary antagonist (The Collector) Demon Knight and antagonizes him through the film in the hopes of starting the apocalypse. Although {{Satan}} is actually TheDragon for the supreme ruler of the demons, The Collector is [[TheHeavy at the heart of the action]], while his boss is a BiggerBad--{{Satan}} himself.background GreaterScopeVillain.

* AffablyEvil: The Collector is an evil [=SOB=], but boy is he charming and polite to anyone he meets.



* FauxAffablyEvil: The Collector is an evil [=SOB=], but boy does he act charming and polite to anyone he meets. And he'll keep up that act even as he tries to corrupt you into eternal damnation, murders you horribly, or attempts to trigger the apocalypse.



* HateSink: Roach, Cordelia's abusive boyfriend and all-around {{Jerkass}} and DirtyCoward. He leaves his girlfriend to die, mocks everyone around him, serves as a constant obstacle to Brayker's plans, and [[spoiler:gives the Collector the Key he's looking for, knowing he's dooming the world to the apocalypse, just to save his own hide. He didn't even have to be tempted into possession like any of the others. The Collector even tells Roach he was counting on him handing over the Key, and another [[FunnyBackgroundEvent demon mook nods in agreement]]. Luckily, he's RewardedAsATraitorDeserves when the Collector has his demons rip him apart.]]

** Less so with the postman Wally, who lands a few head-shots on a demon, and when Brayker tells him to aim for the eyes, puts them out with two more perfect shots.

[[spoiler: Later on it's revealed that Wally has a huge cache of ''assault weapons'' stashed in his room (though he hadn't gotten around to finding much ammunition yet), implying that he's put in the footwork in learning how to use them.]]
