* LivingStructureMonster: The entire hotel room itself, not just any specific piece of it, is evil.

* CompartmentShot: We see the hotel room's mini-bar from the inside when Enslin opens it. He looks baffled and we assume it is because the fridge is empty but it turns out, the fridge's backside is open and leads into the next room from where the hotel manager starts to berate Enslin.

** To the fridge scene from Film/{{Ghostbusters}}.
** There's a small blink-and-you-miss-it reference to the original short story. When Enslin is walking down the hall to the room for the first time, he is shuffling through his notes. On one page is a line from the original short story from when Enslin first begins to feel the effects from the room.

* KillItWithFire: Used in both the short story and the movie to escape the room... but in slightly different fashions. In a "blink and you miss it" foreshadowing, when the post office is being torn down to reveal the room, one of the bricks on the wall has "Burn it alive" written on it. This is also shown when the room is first encased in brick, outside the living area window [[spoiler: which is the only one in the room at the time]].
