* [[spoiler:BookEnds: It starts with people watching a cheesy horror film at a drive-in cinema when somebody gets killed. That movie was a movie that other people were watching when they get killed (implied death, anyway).]]
* [[spoiler:ButYouWereThereAndYouAndYou: Chicklet says exactly this at the end of the film when she wakes up at the mental hospital, recognising the staff as the murder victims from her dream (the rest of the film).]]

* [[spoiler:DownerEnding: Just when it seems it would end nicely, it's revealed to all have been a dream that Chicklet is having in a mental hospital, which turned out to be a movie based on a true story and Chicklet got out.]]

* [[spoiler:GainaxEnding: It was all about surfers, obvious ChromaKey, parody of campy psycho films and the last few moments are of Chicklet in a mental hospital getting shock therapy and the rest of the film had all been a dream... except that scene was in a film that people were watching that was based on a true story and those people get killed by Chicklet (who wasn't the murderer in the film we just saw, anyway...)]].

* [[spoiler:MandatoryTwistEnding: It was a parody of psychodramas and slasher films, how could it NOT have a massive twist at the end?]]
* [[spoiler:MindScrew: The ending. It was all a dream Chicklet had in a mental hospital. Did ''any'' of the film take place or was she put away after her brother's death but before the "movie" could take place? Next if some of it did happen was she the actual murderer instead of Lars? Did Rhonda actually get killed or was she an extra victim slotted in so Chicklet could make sense of the murders? How much of the movie being watched at the end actually happen in Chicklet's world? Did the in-universe makers of that film change a lot to make it interesting, even changing the murderer to Lars? Did the entire movie happen, but afterward Chicklet got worse again and later became a murderer after the trauma of Lars trying to kill her?]]

* DawsonCasting: Averted. Charles Busch was tempted to play Chicklet in the film but decided that while he could get away as playing such a young woman on stage, on film it would be entirely different.

* MsFanservice: This being a beach movie, girls constantly wearing bikinis is inevitable. Marvel Ann in particular finds herself as one of the biggest examples, intentionally and not.



* ShamefulStrip: Happens to Marvel Ann (Amy Adams) when she breaks up with her boyfriend; he tries to get his pin from her, which is attached to her bikini bottoms, and then he accidentally rips her bikini bottoms off, exposing her lower half for all the beach to see - and forcing her to run off while trying to cover herself ineffectually.
