* AmnesiacDissonance: The memories of the people in the framing stories have been rolled back to the point before they committed their misdeeds. They're all pretty shocked and confused about what they did.

Added DiffLines:

* LighterAndSofter: Not by far, since there is still extreme violence and the same dark themes, but ''Vault of Horror'' is more humorous and tongue-in-cheek compared to the grim and bleak ''Tales from the Crypt''. Some scenes are deliberately campy and even the [[spoiler: ending condemnation]] is downplayed.

** ''The Vault of Horror'' arguably suffers from this. Murdering multiple people with voodoo magic as revenge for perceived misdeeds gets you sent to an eternity of punishment? Reasonable. Murdering a man to make money off his magic trick gets you sent to an eternity of punishment? Reasonable. Abusing your wife due to what appears to be severe, untreated Obsessive Compulsive Disorder? It's bad, but not quite his fault in the same way, surely?
* DrivenToSuicide: Grimsdyke.

** Sure, they did terrible things, but the people in the framing story cannot actually remember committing their various misdeeds at all. Nevertheless they still get sent to Hell. Then again, they're already dead, and therefore presumably beyond any chance of repentance or atonement.

* TheDogBitesBack: "Poetic Justice" and "Blind Alleys" for the first film, "The Neat Job" and "This Trick'll Kill You" for the second.

* TheDogBitesBack: "Poetic Justice" and "Blind Alleys" for the first film, "The Neat Job" and "This Trick'll Kill You" for the second. Its this coupled with PayEvilUntoEvil as the victims of the wicked turn into their punishers unlike "...And All Through the House",''Wish You Were Here'', ''Midnight Mess'' and 'Bargain in Death'' where the cases are KickTheSonOfABitch with the just as evil punishers just happening to encounter the characters and unknowingly making them pay.

Added DiffLines:

* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: The sole redeeming feature of most of the damned ones, is that in life, they had someone they cared about. Joanne had her daughter, the Elliots each other, Jason his wife and Major Rogers his dog.

* IdiotPlot: Creator/TomBaker has complained about this being a problem in "Drawn and Quartered", because his character decides the first thing he needs to do after receiving SympatheticMagic powers that work via paintings is to paint a self-portrait. (Possibly justified as in the film, it seems Moore isn't aware his powers have developed at the time.)

* EvilVersusEvil: In "...And All Through the House" there is the financially motivated murderous wife against a serial killer with a fixation on killing random adult women.
In "Midnight Mess it's a greedy murderer versus bloodthirsty vampires. Take a wild guess who wins
