Added DiffLines:

* TheAlcoholic: Dr. Challis. Although his drinking never seems to get in the way or slow him down during the movie. More than anything else, it's implied to be a reason his marriage is failing.

Added DiffLines:

* MayDecemberRomance: Challis is well into his forties, and Ellie is in her early twenties (although she claims to be older than she looks). To be fair, the romance really just happened spontaneously. Challis initially is reluctant to pursue her given the situation, her loss, and the fact he's still married (even if unhappily).

* AffabyEvil: Conal Cochoran. He is always jovial and genteel, even at his most evil. Even his [[spoiler: hideous plot to massacre thousands of innocent children]] is a ''mischievous prank'' to him.

Added DiffLines:

* JerkassWoobie: The entire Kupfer family qualifies: the dad is a boisterous oaf, the mom is a shrill ditz, and the kid is a little creep. Even so, their deaths are horrific, and they certainly were not deserving of such a hideous fate.

* DeceptivelyHumanRobots: Possibly even RidiculouslyHumanRobots, in the case of [[spoiler:Ellie]].
** Cochran's mooks were {{Magitek}} clockwork robots and obedient factory workers, but unlike [[Literature/TheWonderfulWizardOfOz past]] [[Literature/CharlieAndTheChocolateFactory examples]], there wasn't anything the LEAST bit funny about them - they were designed as low-tech Franchise/{{Terminator}}s.

* BondVillainStupidity: When Dan gets caught in the factory, Conal lets him live long enough to explain his entire evil plot and then places Dan in a DeathTrap. This makes no sense since Dan is of no importance and serves no purpose to Conal. Logically he should have been killed instantly like every other victim in the movie.

It was the start of the year in our old Celtic lands and we'd be waiting...the barriers would be down, you see, between the real and the unreal. And the dead might be looking in, to sit by our fires of turf. Halloween - the festival of ''Samhain.'' The last great one was three thousand years ago and the hills ran ''red'' with the blood of animals [[spoiler:and children]].

** [[spoiler:The real robots weren't very talkative, but Ellie early on was quite animated, and was bound to go to the factory. Probably Ellie was real until she saw her father's car, and was seen being forced into the factory by other robots shortly thereafter. Notice how Ellie never spoke from the moment that she was "rescued"? The ''ad hoc'' robot Ellie was Cochran's last little joke - and assurance that Challis would die no matter what happened in the factory. Ellie was most likely... [[FridgeHorror disposed of]].]]
