** [[spoiler:Dr. Ferraro]]'s Ferreiro]]'s last words are fairly memorable as well:



* ICannotSelfTerminate: Vidal orders Dr. Ferraro to treat the wounds of a rebel he is torturing so that he can be tortured some more. The man begs Dr. Ferraro to kill him, and Ferraro obliges by giving a lethal injection.

* InvertedTrope: According to WordOfGod, in this movie, set in Falangist Spain, it's courageous ''dis''obedience, rather than blind obedience, that is the true virtue. This is nearly the opposite of pretty much any normal fairy-tale. Dr. Ferraro gets a [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech Reason You Suck]] line aimed at Vidal to this effect.

* SuddenSequelDeathSyndrome: A downplayed example, but Fernando Tielve and Íñigo Garcés (Carlos and Jaime from ''Film/TheDevilsBackbone'') appear in this film as Republican partisans. Per WordOfGod, they actually ''are'' Carlos and Jaime, revealing they survived the ending of that film. [[KillEmAll Needless to say]], they don't survive this one.

** There were some who saw it as a SpiritualSuccessor to the Franco-Era Spanish classic TheSpiritOfTheBeehive, another film that deals with a young girl's experiences in the early Franco years and her perception of the real-world realities of the time through a fantasy lens (in this case through Boris Karloff's Frankenstein).

* SoftGlass: Subverted in a scene early on which has Captain Vidal smashing a man's face in with a wine bottle. The ''bottle'' doesn't break.
