* AssholeVictim: Most of the victims. Most notably Artie the cook, who ''really'' likes children (yes, in ''that'' way). Ironically, he's also the only victim who doesn't die. Though if he survived his grave injuries it's likely a AFateWorseThanDeath. He's horribly disfigured and likely blind by the time he's rolled off to hospital. However some of the victims are selected for very petty reasons, most notably [[spoiler: the young children murdered for being a bit bratty and kicking sand at Angela.]]

!!The first film contains the examples of:

* AdultsAreUseless: The rest of the kitchen staff know Artie, the head cook, is a pedophile and don't seem to care. The head of the camp is more concerned with the bad publicity and possible lawsuits that might arise from homicides than the fact that there's a potential murderer on the grounds that are filled with kids.

[[spoiler: Angela and her brother Peter, as kids, saw their father spooning which another man (not sex, just embracing lovingly), which seemed to confuse them more than anything else. Peter, now being forced to be a girl against his will, is now deeply confused about his own sexuality and flashes back to this when contemplating being hit on by Paul. Unable to sort his feelings out, he eventually winds up murdering Paul.]]

* WhenSheSmiles: Angela is typically meant to look like a CreepyChild with an expressionless ThousandYardStare. When not being abused by bullies and talking to Ricky and Paul, Angela comes out of her shell a little and starts smiling, which makes her look adorable.
