* TheAlibi: Deliberately invoked by [[spoiler:one of the killers. Neal uses Berti's killings, which happened before Neal came to Italy, to throw suspicion off himself as he plans the murders of Berti, his agent, his wife, and his secretary. He advises the police that, in his opinion, all of these killings are being committed by the same person -- and since he wasn't in the country yet, that rules ''him'' out, right?]]

* YourApprovalFillsMeWithShame: A variation. Berti asks Neal, with an excited voice, if he agrees with the view of the killer in the novel that homosexuals are disgusting and disposable perverts. A visibly disturbed Neal comments that the novel's main character is a psychopath.

While the killings continue, Neal notices that TV interviewer Christiano Berti (John Steiner) appears to have an unusually intense interest in the novelist's work.

Added DiffLines:

* Establishing Character Moment: Peter Neal's rather cavalier attitude toward his own success is revealed at our first sight of him. He owns a Rolls and pays a chauffeur, but instead of being driven to the airport he ''bicycles'' behind his car all the way; he retrieves his luggage from the car boot, puts his bike in it, and is next seen hurriedly changing from his tracksuit into a business suit in the airport men's room. All this seems to suggest it's not the lure of money and fame that keeps him writing; he has other concerns. [[spoiler:Like the opportunity to exorcise his own personal demons.]]

--> '''Dario Argento:''' ''Film/{{Suspiria}}'' was a great explosion of lights and colors, but here I wanted to do a very cold kind of film, like ice.

* DaylightHorror: Argento and cinematographer Luciano Tovoli shot most of the film in bright or brightly lit locations, even at night. White is the predominating color.
