* HollywoodTactics: Apparently infantry engagement rules in the 50's required soldiers to stand tightly clumped-together and fire at the enemy from ''seven feet away''. Col. Caldwell only thinks to use a grenade after his entire squad is eaten.

Added DiffLines:

* SoundtrackDissonance: Most of the scenes with the monster eating people are set to jazz music. Completely takes away from the scariness of the situation.

* SocietyMarchesOn: Of course, but it's amusing to see a car with "23 Skiddoo" and other archaic jargon painted all over it.

* TokenRomance: During the party, one character is stewing about her boyfriend standing her up, then a pair of guys duking it out while the monster rampages. [[BigLippedAlligatorMoment This subplot is suddenly introduced and vanishes just as quickly.]]

* TooDumbToLive: Almost all of the victims tend to stand in place and scream rather than flee the easily outrunable creature, except the ones in cars. [[UpToEleven They just kind of sit there and scream, even though they could outspeed the monster by at least 1000%]]. The monster design pretty much makes it impossible to eat anyone without their willing assistance.
