* FlatEarthAtheist: Holden gets almost ridiculous when he starts rationalizing away the most utterly unnatural events imaginable as 'some sort of a trick'. [[SubvertedTrope It is subverted]] at the climax, however, when he tells Karswell that he does indeed believe in his powers now... [[spoiler:so much so that he'll keep Karswell with him so the demon can kill BOTH of them]].

Added DiffLines:

* LighterAndSofter: [[EvilSorceror Karswell]] is this in comparison to the original story. In it, he was a [[{{Jerkass}} vicious bully]] who delighted in [[DisproportionateRetribution setting his pet demon on people for even minor insults]]; and the childrens' party ended with him [[ForTheEvulz traumatizing the children for laughs]].

* IdiotBall: Whoever thought it was a good idea to bring an insane, suspected murderer in front of an audience, and inject him with drugs to revive him from a catatonic state, without using any restraints?
