* TheKlan: Ingeniously referenced in the film's subtext. After [[AnimateInanimateObject Christine's slice of cake swallows her fork]] and [[ParanoiaGambit she believes that she can hear the Lamia lurking outside of Clay's parent's dining room]], she suddenly perceives that Clay and his parents are [[MotorMouth talking gibberishly quick]]; as suddenly, chatter subsides to calm and audible the instant Clay's mother asks Christine a "'yes' or 'no'" question on what was immediately previously discussed, apparently about her. Purely uncertain, guessing, and scared, she answers "no". This answer immediately sours the mood of all at the table, and Clay quickly corrects Christine that she ought have answered "yes". [[{{Horror}} While Christine attempts unsuccessfully to assess the total reality of her current state of torment]], Clay reassures his mother - through background chatter emanating from the foreground - that they did not, in fact, go to a [[UsefulNotes/KuKluxKlan KKK]] meeting while they outed near Christine's mother's farm (presumably in one of the Southern States).

Added DiffLines:

* ContrivedCoincidence: [[spoiler:Christine is carrying the button in an envelope while Clay gives her a ride in his car while he has a bunch of paperwork in the backseat, plus at the same time he also has there a rare quarter dollar coin in a blank envelope. Sylvia's spirit briefly influences Clay to drive into a bump, sending papers flying everywhere, and of course Christine and Clay accidentally mix up the envelopes. However, Clay having this improbable and plot-convenient baggage that allows for the mixup in the first place seems to just be pure coincidence.]]

* PoorCommunicationKills: Evidently, the following is Clay's thought pattern before he meets Christine on the platform: "Why is there a coat button in this envelope? 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]].

Now Christine must find a way to break the curse before she suffers this most awful of fates.

* 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]].
