* FakeInteractivity: In the closing "vote on the outcome" footage, the narrator actually goes through the motions of calling on specific audience members to hold their cards up higher or otherwise clarify their votes, even though there's no guarantee that, e.g., there'll be a woman in the ninth row to respond to his query.

* StoryBranchFavoritism: Just before the end, producer William Castle appears and asks the audience to hold up cards so as to [[MultipleEndings vote for whether Sardonicus lives or dies]]... but Castle only filmed one ending, assuming (correctly) that [[HumansAreBastards the audience would always choose death]].

* MultipleEndings: The main marketing gimmick for this film. The film itself is a subversion in that only one ending was filmed; the "punishment poll" was entirely meaningless.

As with other William Castle films, the movie's main marketing gimmick was the audience's chance to decide the title character's fate by "penalty poll", the outcome of which supposedly affected the film's ending (even though only one was shot).

Though rumor claims only one ending was shot).actually shot, William Castle claims both were shot and the 'good' ending was just never chosen; given Castle's tenuous relationship with the truth, who knows.
