* StraightGay: Vaughan, played by the late JohnRitter, [[ActorAllusion who]] once played [[ThreesCompany a man acting like he was gay]]. Averted with [[CampGay Albert Sellers]], who despite having only a couple of lines, surely shows his personality.

* [[spoiler: BittersweetEnding:]] [[spoiler: Sure, the horribly abusive monster is out of our protagonists' lives for good, but Karl is, again, locked up in the state hospital. At least he [[TookALevelInBadass can now stand up for himself]] against the pervert Charles Bushman.]]
* [[spoiler: BloodlessCarnage]]: [[spoiler: You'd think with the force Karl uses with that blade there'd be a little splatter or at least a little on his hand, but there's none.]]

* [[spoiler: DropTheHammer]]: [[spoiler: Karl sure does want to, right on Doyle's head, but he had horrible timing. He changed his pre-emptive strike into the BLAM mentioned in YMMV.]]

* [[spoiler: HopeSpot]]: [[spoiler: Near the end of the movie: about three or four minutes are spent with no dialog, simply Karl walking around contemplating the situation: he knows if he goes through with it, he'll at the very least be put in jail, but standing at Doyle's house he decides it's in Frank and Linda's best interest. The extended version draws this out by about a minute, to very tense effect.]]

* EnforcedMethodActing: Minor but humorous: Lucas Black didn't know Karl was going to ad-lib a certain line about potted meat, and genuinely laughed as a result; the effect was still good.

* SeeminglyProfoundFool: Karl is seen as wise by Vaughan and a few others, but he's really just simple (and single) minded. Also {{Subverted}} a few times when Karl shows surprising wisdom, even moving Vaughan to tears at the end.

* SeeminglyProfoundFool: Karl is seen as wise by Vaughan and a few others, but he's really just simple (and single) minded. Also {{Subverted}} a few times when Karl shows surprising wisdom, even moving wisdom. Despite his own personal discomfort with homosexuals, he recognizes that Vaughan is the only decent man in Frank's life and implores him to be a father figure to him. This insight moves Vaughan to tears at the end.
