* CassandraTruth: Chip initially doesn't believe Needy's seemingly outrageous claims about Jennifer, not that you can blame him. Also, Needy is the only one who knows that Low Shoulder aren't the heroes everyone else thinks they are; no-one else believes her when she states otherwise, presumably because that's part of Low Shoulder's DealWithTheDevil.

* AmbiguouslyGay: You could easily make a case for Jennifer being a lesbian -- she seems way more interested in Needy than she does in any guy, even kissing her at one point, and her rendezvouses with men seem shallow at best, maybe even just ploys for her social position. (Or for food.) This is a heavy contrast to her very passionate, very emotional friendship with Needy.

* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: Jennifer's abduction by Low Shoulder has some extremely rape-y overtones. They take advantage of her shock at the bar burning down to ply her with drink, bundle her into their van, and drive off with her into the woods. During the journey, a terrified Jennifer even outright asks if they're rapists, and doesn't get a straight response.

* 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?
