* TheLegionsOfHell: Are mostly tiny devil things. At first...
* NotNowKiddo: Not too painfully played, but the older sister doesn't believe themat first.
* OurDemonsAreDifferent: Mostly small, hunchbacked gray imps with one huge, four armed sloth thing leading them. They also have more Lovecraftian themes surrounding them than Satanic ones.
* SeparatedFromTheAdults: The whole movie takes place while the parents are on vacation.
* ShapeshifterGuiltTrip: The demons appear as the parents seconds after they first arrive. They break their diguise before they even speak, but all they ever say is "YOU'VE BEEN BAAAAAD!".
* SubliminalSeduction: Inverted. The record is openly occult and is actually part of the coincidence that summons the demons. Playing it backwards provides the spell to banish them.
