* EvenEvilHasStandards: When Tom first investigates the underground porn rings for snuff films he is driven out at gunpoint for daring to ask for it. Others into extreme bondage rape and sell kiddy porn are likewise angry at being asked about it. It takes a real sicko to find one, and even then it's fake (simulated, no one dies.)

** Downplayed with Poole. He admits that he was disgusted by the murder he was forced to partake in, but only because he found it "gross" and not because he has any moral constraints.

** SerialKiller: He also might be this.
-->'''Machine:''' You know the best part of killing '''someone?''' The look on '''their''' face. It's that look. Not when '''they're''' threatened. Not when you hurt '''them.''' Not even when '''they''' see the knife. It's when '''they''' feel the knife go in. That's it. It's surprise. '''They''' just can't believe it's really happening to '''them.''' She had that look, the girl, when she knew it wasn't just porno.

* SnuffFilm: Welles can find no proof that snuff films are anything other than an UrbanLegend. [[spoiler:It turned out that Mr Christian discovered this, too, so he hired Velvet to create one.]]
** Actually, it was Longsdale who came to that conclusion and improvised by contracting Velvet to make one. The movie strongly indicated that he was merely an interested purchaser.
