Oh, that's from Christine's jacket. I'll return it tomorrow." The first day of their holiday also happens to be the final day in the cycle of the curse. In the end, the trope is [[spoiler: PlayedStraight]].

* AesopCollateralDamage: A Meta-example. In this fictional reality, [[spoiler: Christine and the young boy]] burn in Hell because that is arguably what the viewer wants: [[MeaningfulName the film's title]] suggests that the only reason anyone watched it was from a desire to be affected by the possibility (if it exists) of damnation. [[AuthorTract This is the point of the film]]. [[PoesLaw You may read it two ways]]: a meticulously and painfully well-paced joke, or as an incredibly pointed reminder of the greatest pitfall one can traverse on the path to enlightenment - the concrete and active pursuit of another's damnation. [[{{Camp}} You may, of course, watch it both ways]].

* AnvilOnHead: As Christine searches her garage for novelties that can be sold quickly to a pawn broker, an apparition of [[spoiler: Mrs. Ganush]] attacks her [[spoiler: pushing her against a pillar and shoving its fist down her throat]]. From where she stands, Christine sees taught rope holding an anvil in place above the apparition's head, which she then severs with the blade of one of her ice skates: the anvil crushes the apparition's skull, [[{{Squick}} shooting its eyes and the squished remains of the insides of its mouth]] [[RunningGag into Christine's]].

** {{Jerkass}} Stu almost gets cursed to hell for all eternity by Christine.



* EvenBadMenLoveTheirMamas: When the {{Jerkass}} Stu thinks Christy's found him out about taking her freelance contract, his biggest concern is ''his dad finding out''. Cue the Asian parents jokes.

* FliesEqualsEvil: When a fly is present, it portents the GypsyCurse: when the parents of the ten-year-old boy reveal to Shaun San Dena the necklace he stole from the travelling Gypsies, a fly escapes from between the necklace and the blanket covering it before it hovers over the necklace and harasses Shaun San Dena (she shoos it away); after having been told by Rham Jas that someone had cursed her, a fly interrupts Christine's sleep - having entered her room through her open bedroom window - by crawling up and into one of her nostrils and out the other, then crawling into her mouth, subsequently waking her; the next day, while Christine attempts to compose herself during work, she hears the fly moving within her stomach before succumbing to a very powerful hallucination and [[HighPressureBlood a huge amount of blood loss from the orifices of her mouth and nose]] (these being the entry points the fly took the previous night); finally, [[spoiler: after sacrificing her cat to the Lamia (the goat-like demon tormenting her),]] Christine meets her boyfriend's parents at their house with him, and she brings a home-made cake that, she having bitten into a piece of it, causes her to cough the fly out of her belly - her boyfriend's parents [[FromBadToWorse connect the dots, spit portions of cake from their mouths, and allow the entire lunch experience to sour]].

Oh, that's the thing that Christine was stressing about, isn't it - the thing she was sure would send her to [[FireAndBrimstoneHell Hell]]? What a stupid thing to assume: [[JustifiedTrope I haven't seen a thing to suggest that she's in any danger at all]]. Still, she was pretty worried about it. She needs to relax a little: I can return it tomorrow." The first day of their holiday also happens to be the final day in the cycle of the curse.
