** When Miss Burke gets [[spoiler: beheaded in the car crash, her head walks around on tentacles]] then she grabs it. This is a recurring art obsession, from [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cephalophore Saint Denis]] to [[http://www.viralnova.com/victorian-headless-photos/ Victorian photographers]]. It is also in Film/ReAnimator and Film/TheSerpentAndTheRainbow.

Added DiffLines:

Added DiffLines:

* VillainHasAPoint: [[spoiler:Marybeth tells Casey that she can make everyone part of something greater]] when in fact the aliens actually ''have'' been making things seemingly better. All the students and teachers get along much better after infection. Even the fighting teen couple in the school get along better after they're infected.

* SuckySchool: There is a scene early on that takes place at a faculty meeting, where they are deciding how to divide the school's budget. Much to the teachers' chagrin, money that could be used for buying new textbooks or putting on a SchoolPlay other than ''OurTown''[[note]]A play that is traditionally staged without a set of any kind, and as few props as possible. Theater geeks will [[GeniusBonus get a chuckle]] from this.[[/note]] is instead directed towards the football team because, as Principal Drake explains, [[SeriousBusiness they live in a football town]]. She doesn't think the football team deserves all the attention and funding, but it's what the ''parents'' want.

* FiveManBand: Not the variety used on this site, but the one used in ''TheBreakfastClub'' -- the princess (Delilah), the criminal (Zeke), the brain (Casey), the athlete (Stan) and the basket case (Stokely). There's also the new girl (Marybeth) [[spoiler:who turns out to be the BigBad]].
** If you're going by the "standard" FiveManBand formula:
*** Stan: TheHero
*** Stokely: TheLancer
*** Zeke: TheBigGuy, with elements of TheSmartGuy.
*** Casey: TheSmartGuy, although he turns into TheHero during the climax.
*** Delilah: TheChick
*** Marybeth: The SixthRanger. [[spoiler:Actually the SixthRangerTraitor.]]
