* SanitySlippage: Essentially the entire movie is based around this. As Trent gets closer to the truth, holes start to appear in his reality and mundane things become nightmarish.

* InsuranceFraud: It's Trent's job to investigate cases of this, and it's the first thing (outside the opening scene) we see him doing: A guy burns down his warehouse of [[PrettyInMink fur coats]], but it turns out he just stashed them away and gave one to his wife...and another to [[TheMistress his mistress]]. Catching both those ladies in their coats gave the guy away.

* OnlySaneMan: Trent insists that he knows what reality is, and to hell with what anyone else says. [[spoiler:He gives up the pretense at the end. Although he really ''is'' the only sane man, because [[FridgeBrilliance that's how Cane wrote him]].]] {{Discussed}} by Cane: "Always looking for the con...even now you're trying to rationalize."

** Cane himself has one, in the form a monster on the back of his head that's only shown once, possibly placed there to hint [[HumanoidAbomination at his true nature]].

* AndIMustScream: Everyone in the movie [[spoiler:is a work of fiction in Sutter Cane's latest novel, and everything they do is done entirely against their own will, [[MindScrew because they have none]].]]

* LaughingMad: Trent at the end of the film when he stumbles upon [[spoiler:a movie theater playing John Carpenter's ''In the Mouth of Madness'' (yes, the film he is inside of)]] and promptly [[GoMadFromTheRevelation snaps]].

** Well, that's how many folks claim to follow Christianity as part of their identity/culture/upbringing. How many of them actually *believe* is what matters in this case.

* AlienGeometries: When Linda Styles investigates the interior of Sutter Cane's (who is basically an amalgam of Stephen King and H.P. Lovecraft) evil church in Hobb's End, she opens a door to find a small unoccupied room with a typewriter. After she turns around and opens the door again, it's now a giant room with Caine typing in the far corner.

to:

* AffablyEvil: Sutter Cane is rather polite and soft-spoken for a MadArtist hellbent on [[RealityWarper destroying reality]] as we know it. He shrugs off most of Trent's insults and [[spoiler:gives him a chance to escape before he releases the Old Ones. Of course, in that case, he needed him alive so he could deliver the manuscript.]]

Added DiffLines:

* HumanoidAbomination: It's pretty safe to say that Sutter Cane is no longer entirely human by the time Trent finds him. His [[RealityWarper reality warping]] powers along with his RedRightHand when he [[spoiler:shows Linda the manuscript]] kinda gives this away.

* AnythingButThat: "Oh, no. Not Music/TheCarpenters, too." Also a more subtle bit of SelfDeprecation, considering the director of this movie is Creator/JohnCarpenter.
