** A subtle one is how the USSR is portrayed as some sort of Atheist hellhole, yet participation in the Orthodox church started to pick up again after the German invasion during World War 2. While the church was controlled by the Soviet government and the post of Metropolitan of Moscow was vacant for some years beyond 1917, Christianity has been central to Russian identity for so long and even communism could not dislodge it.

I Irony: Unintended, but at one point Pirkle is warning that the Communists will force you to sit on wooden benches and listen to loudspeakers spewing propaganda (see the page quote above), and is saying this to a congregation sitting on wooden pews.

-->'''Reporter''': We interrupt this program to bring you news bulletins from WashingtonDC. All the wires have sent us the account. The President of the United States has been killed ''[strange pause]'' in the White House, along with the Secretary of State and the Speaker of the House of Representatives. [[ThisJustIn Other bulletins]], coming from around the country, say that the governors of several states have been killed; the Governor of California, Texas, Arkansas, Louisiana... and of New York. [[ThisJustIn There are other bulletins that tell us]]... that people are being herded into the street of the large cities and machine-gunned down like cattle! Ladies and gentlemen... this... is the communist takeover of the United States! This is the end of democracy as you and I know it!

* WhatTheHellIsThatAccent: What has been described as a "Communist accent". A deep blend of German, Russian and Cuban, with it shifting not only from scene to scene, but within the same lines.

* IfYoureSoEvilEatThisKitten: After lying about not being a Christian, our idiot friend Tommy is ordered to prove himself by shooting his own mother.



* MissingStepsPlan: The Reverend is a mite fuzzy on exactly how good Christians abstaining from premartial sex, dancing, and miniskirts is supposed to prevent the Red Menace from invading the U.S. unopposed. Mocked by the inimitable Creator/{{Seanbaby}} in his review from ''The Wave'':

* SchizoTech: Throughout the film, communist soldiers ride around on horses. Presumably, this is to drive home the "footmen and horses" metaphor, but there doesn't seem to be any internal logic behind it.

The Reds evidently have a very tight Christian-murdering budget, since most of their motor vehicle needs seem to be handled by a beat-up Ford truck.

During the 1970s and 1980s, this film was circulated amongst the more fundamentalist churches in the DeepSouth. Today, it's something of a CultClassic for [[SoBadItsGood different reasons]].

* InfantImmortality: Inverted HARD! In fact the worst scenes involve children....from the boy getting his eardrums punctured (then barfing up a storm), the kids forced to drop their dad on a pitchfork & the kid who gets his head lopped off. Then, of course, the kids seen amongst the gunned-down dead.
