Added DiffLines:

* CruelTwistEnding: At the end of the film, Hobbes [[spoiler: sacrifices his life to destroy the villain. The villain escapes at the last minute; this was foreshadowed in the opening of the movie. Not to mention that Hobbes' reputation is completely destroyed-he'll be remembered as a psychotic cop killer who murdered his own friend. It's also implied heavily that Azazel will spend the rest of his son's life hunting him in order to visit the same fate upon him.]]

* DevilButNoGod: There is a demon essentially free to take over people's bodies and use them to commit murder. Apparently, the forces of Heaven are not concerned enough to show up and do something about it. There are some Catholic demonologists mentioned to fight the demons, but we never see this and the one who is shown in the film only gives the protagonist information on them.



* HeroicSuicide: [[spoiler:Realizing that Azazel will never stop tormenting him and that the demon will target Gretta and Sam next, Hobbes plots to lure Azazel to the remote cabin Milano killed himself at, then poison himself and trick Azazel into his dying body so that the demon will die, too, without any other host in the area. Although he does succeed in setting all aspects of his plan into motion, and dies thinking it worked, Azazel manages to survive by finding a cat to possess.]]

* CriminalMindGames: Are Azazel's ''favorite'' kind of game. Even before Reese was executed and he got loose, there's mention of how he used to call John at odd hours of the night from prison, something he continues to do after Reese's death, which is only the start of John's troubles.

* VideoWills: A camera crew records Edgar Reeves before his execution. At one point in the footage, Reeves addresses Hobbes (who is watching it days after Reeves' death) directly.

-->'''Reeves/Azazel:''' I can't get inside you by touch, but even when I can, when I'm spirit, I won't. No. Better I get you for real. I'll fuck you up, down, left, right, coming, going. I'll get so close to you, so close it breaks you. And if that doesn't work, I have other ways. I have so many, many ways.

* InconvenientlyVanishingExoneratingEvidence: With a twist. [[spoiler:Azazel possesses a random man on the street, who steals the gun hidden nearby and draws down on Hobbes, who is forced into killing him. The demon then possesses a nearby woman, explaining he can possess anyone within 500 cubits, or about a sixth of a mile (880 feet), if suddenly loosed from his last host. Using this woman, Azazel then smears Hobbes, saying he killed the last host without provocation. The media buys it, since the man's gun only had blanks in it. And Hobbes can't explain his main reason for shooting--freaking demonic possession--without looking crazy, so he gets suspended, removing him from hunting down the demon.]]

* SuicideByCop: With a twist. [[spoiler:Azazel possesses a random man on Referenced during the street, who steals aftermath of the gun hidden nearby and draws down on Hobbes, who is forced into killing him. The demon then possesses a nearby woman, explaining he can possess anyone within 500 cubits, or about a sixth of a mile (880 feet), if suddenly loosed from his last host. Using this woman Azazel then smears Hobbes, saying he killed the last host without provocation, and InconvenientlyVanishingExoneratingEvidence scene above. Hobbes suggests that the man pointed a gun at him, loaded with blanks, specifically because he wanted to die. The other cops rule this out, because the man's psychological profile had no reason to do this, plus none of the gun only had blanks in it, so the media buys it. Hobbes thus gets suspended, removing him from hunting down the demon.]]suicide warning signs.
