Also used when a bird frightens Colin when he is trying to find Jennifer in the partially-constructed house.

Added DiffLines:

* StrawFeminist: Jennifer has a bit of this trait, claiming that PMS was invented by "boy-run media to make (women) seem crazy". An unused exchange between her and Needy also has her trying to justify her murders thus:
--->'''Needy:''' You're killing people!
--->'''Jennifer:''' No, I'm killing ''boys''.

* BaitAndSwitchLesbians: The earliest trailers showed Jennifer and Needy in intimate situations and despite their making out in the movie, both of them have male romantic/sexual interests. However, there is enough LesYay in the movie for someone to reasonably assume that the two girls were at least bisexual. The argument could even be made for Jennifer being an outright lesbian, since all of her male interests were either the result of jockeying for social position, or trying to keep Needy for herself. In fact, after a scene of Needy gazing a little too blissfully at Jennifer another girl says to her point blank: "You are totally [=LesbiGay=]."

Added DiffLines:

* UnreliableNarrator: the story is told as a flashback by Anita, who is a patient in a mental hospital. The story in the flashback appears to contain multiple supernatural aspects, notably that Anita's friend Jennifer has magic powers. At the end of the film, Anita appears to use the magic powers that had supposedly been Jennifer's to break out of the asylum. Was all of it real? All the delusions of a lunatic? Not precisely real, but the truth as seen ThroughTheEyesOfMadness?
