* MugshotMontage: Happens whenever someone is arrested, accompanied by heavy metal music that serves as a GreekChorus. A particularly long one occurs at the end due to the huge number of suspects, each of the antagonists in the sorry shape the climax left them in.

* OffscreenTeleportation: The black cloaked figure pulls this twice on Angel when fleeing from him [[spoiler:after murdering Leslie Tiller]], as in the blink of an eye, the figure is suddenly quite a distance ahead of him twice, first when they emerge into the open, and then after the figure makes it through a fence. [[spoiler:Subverted, however, when it's later revealed there were multiple cloaked figures in the sequence, at the same time as Angel discovers the killers at the castle.]]

-->The idea of [[spoiler:there being multiple killers responsible for murder]] is inspired by Agatha Christie's ''Literature/MurderOnTheOrientExpress''. Apologies for the spoiler. It has been out for 82 years.

* {{Irony}}: When [[spoiler: Skinner]] attacks Angel in the model village, he slips on a model Somerset van ([[spoiler:the store he runs]]) and his chin is impaled on the model church roof. He was presumably the one who dropped a piece of the real church roof on [[spoiler: Tim Messenger]]'s head.

* DrosteImage: That shot of Simon Skinner's smiling face in front of a photo of himself smiling. The first shot of the movie is similar: Angel, scowling, holds up his badge which includes his ID photo, scowling. Both shots were created by copy-and-pasting the actors' heads onto the photos in post-production.

Added DiffLines:

* DudeNotFunny: InUniverse. Angel has this reaction in the pub when Fisher tells him, "Nobody's going to stab you in here, Sergeant. Not a member of the public, anyhow." Unamused, Angel tells him that he has firsthand experience of been stabbed and it is definitely not funny.

** The stab-proof vest plays a part in Danny [[spoiler:pretending to stab Angel to death when he's cornered by the NWA.]] Strangely enough, the vest seems as though it would be relevant again, but "misfires" when [[spoiler: Skinner rushes Angel with a box-cutter at the end, you expect it to come into play, but Skinner slips on something before he can actually stab Nicholas.]]
