* SlasherMovie: One of the earliest examples along with ''Film/{{Psycho}}'' and ''Film/BlackChristmas'', though this one is more of the gun-toting kind (in a similar vein as the sub-genre's textbook example ''Film/TheTerminator'') then the usual knifing type.

* MeanCharacterNiceActor: In-universe, Orlok is one of these. He's built up a career playing monsters and maniacs, but off-camera he's clearly very kind and classy (again, just like Karloff himself). Thompson [[NiceCharacterMeanActor is the exact opposite]]; while he [[StepfordSmiler maintains the facade of a cheerful, normal, All-American youth]], he really seems to be a monster on the inside.

The film is a worthy coda for Karloff's career, a fine directorial debut for Bogdanovich, and a symbolic passing of the torch from one generation of filmmakers to the next.
