* UnbuiltTrope: It's truly amazing how similar some moments in this movie are to a [[ZombieApocalypse zombie horror film.]] With the masses of weak but overwhelming killers, the shock at the outlandish idea that such creatures could ever attack, barricading houses and hysterical survivors, you could easily see this as Hitchcock putting his own stamp on the convetions...but zombie movies wouldn't come about [[NightOfTheLivingDead for another five years.]]
