* WriterOnBoard: The entire movie is about writers talking about writing; and at one point a typewriter sprouts an erect penis-like appendage when pornography is written on it.

* DepravedHomosexual: Yves Cloquet is initially impressed by the young men William Lee manages to attract. Later, he arranges a sexual thryst with Kiki before Lee walks in on Cloquet having turned into a giant centipede and in the process of raping Kiki to death. It's possible that Lee is having one of [[ThroughTheEyesOfMadness his more deranged hallucinations]] and is visualizing his internalized homophobia.

Added DiffLines:

* ForgingScene: Played with, as it's done with a ''typewriter'' instead of a sword. Lee's writing machine is taken back a gunpoint by the guy he borrowed it from and his old one gets smashed to pieces. Kiki then takes him to a blacksmith who uses the old pieces to forge a new one.

* DepravedHomosexual: Yves Cloquet is initially impressed by the young men William Lee manages to attract. Later, he arranges a sexual thryst with Kiki before Lee walks in on Cloquet having turned into a giant centipede and raping Kiki to death. It's equally likely that Lee is having one of [[ThroughTheEyesOfMadness his more deranged hallucinations]] and is projecting his own homophobia (presumably including that of [[StraightGay his own homosexuality]]) into something ghastly.

Added DiffLines:

* LatexPerfection: [[spoiler:Doctor Benway]] disguises himself as [[spoiler:Fadela]] with a perfect bodysuit to remain incognito in Interzone.
* MadDoctor: Doctor Benway, a random general practitioner that Lee visited once in New York, turns out to be the DiabolicalMastermind behind an international drug ring operating out of Interzone. This incredulity is one of the many reasons why Lee [[ThroughTheEyesOfMadness might be insane]].

* ActingForTwo: Several actors portray multiple roles.
** The two policemen near the start of the film reappear at the end as the two Annexian border guards.
** Joan Lee (Bill's wife) and Joan Frost (Tom Frost's wife) are played by the same actress. They may or may not be the same character. Given [[ThroughTheEyesOfMadness the nature of the film]], it's hard to tell.
** The actor who voices the bugs (and sounds a lot like Burroughs, for that matter) has a small role as an exterminator colleague whom Lee questions on the subway.


Added DiffLines:

* IdenticalStranger: These show up throughout the film with a lot of the actors portraying supposedly unrelated characters. Given the [[ThroughTheEyesOfMadness mindbending nature of the plot]], it's hard to tell if they're actually the same people or not. For instance, Joan Lee (Bill's wife) and Joan Frost (Tom Frost's wife) are physically identical. The two NYC policemen near the start of the film reappear at the end as two [[{{Ruritania}} Annexian]] border guards. The actor who voices the bugs (and sounds a lot like Creator/WilliamSBurroughs, for that matter) has a small role as an exterminator colleague whom Lee questions on the subway.
