* UncannyValley: [[spoiler: Kagutaba's face, along with the way he just stands there after Hori brains him with the rock.]]
** Junko Ishii's behavior is also something of a verbal/emotional variant; it's as if she understands anger, but not human interaction.

* EldritchAbomination: [[spoiler: Kagutaba. It's never sufficiently explained what the Kagutaba actually is or where it came from, its mere presence (which is felt everywhere) drives people insane and/or to suicide, and if there is any purpose behind Kagutaba's actions, it's utterly incomprehensible - it never seems to be an actively malicious character but more a generally harmful force that cares little to not at all about the people it destroys. The first thing established about Kagutaba is that no one actually knows what it is, and that those who knew ABOUT it described it as a devil doing evil deeds simply to have at least SOME way to comprehend what they were dealing with.]]

Added DiffLines:

** At the end of the film, Kobayashi displays uncommon kindness by taking a mentally disturbed person into his home - heartwarming, yeah? [[spoiler: It ends with this person having a (justified) episode that they're also sheltering the demon that the film centers around(and he's correct), attempting to beat the child hosting it to death with a stone, braining Kobayashi with it to keep him from interfering, and eventually Kobayashi is '''forced to watch his wife burn to death while utterly helpless''']].

* NothingIsScarier: This film is built on this trope. It serves up long scenes with eeriness and tension. It make the payoff all the more terrifying when creepy things are actually shown.
