* FlashbackWithTheOtherDarrin: They don't even make [[spoiler:Karen's on-air transformation]] remotely look like the scene from the first movie. Possibly lampshaded when Ben calls the footage he is shown fake and claims the Karen in the video looks nothing like his sister.

* BodyHorror: Especially prominent in this film. The first transformation is quite horrific - it consists of the body disintegrating into a puddle of goo and then rebuilding itself into a wolfman shape.
* FromBadToWorse: These werewolves happen to worship Satan.
