* MusicalisInterruptus: Happens twice in [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qsReazOiLwM this]] safecracking scene. Arkin finds himself getting spooked by background noises. As soon as he hears the key sliding into the lock, the tense movie score abruptly stops, replaced by another song until the creaking floorboards on the stairs interrupts ''that'' song, spurring him into covering the safe back up.
** Rather fittingly for a horror film, the song in the middle is the introduction to Korn's ''Dead Bodies Everywhere''.

* {{Badass}}: Arkin by ''The Collection'', Lucello Elena is [[HandicappedBadass deaf in one ear and manages to outwit The Collector's traps]].
** Always from the second one, even just for a moment, the Collector himself is also one. He beats four armed and trained mercenaries all by his own using an hook and his bare hands. Also it appears he knows some figthing movement.

* ArachnidAppearanceAndAttire: The Collector seems to have an affinity with spiders. With his mask and bizarre eyes he somewhat resembles one, his traps fulfill the same function as a spider's web, and he keeps a number of them as pets. He even has a minor PetTheDog moment where he opens the basement window and releases a spider back into the wild.
