* GoryDiscretionShot / ShadowDiscretionShot: Jerry's murders are depicted in this manner.



* NiceHat: The carnival barker's straw boater.
-->'''Barker:''' Oh, uh... ''I'll'' wash the dishes. [tips hat in a playfully rakish manner]\\
'''[[MysteryScienceTheater3000 Mike:]]''' With my ''hat''.



* TarotTroubles: Along with performing a palm-reading and a crystal ball reading for the protagonists, Estrella also performs a tarot reading for the superstitious dancer Marge. Marge freaks out and bolts after drawing the Death card[[note]]As with most productions, they confuse the Death card with actual Death. In Tarot, the Death card means "change". Reversed, it means "disastrous change". The Tower and 10 of Swords would be more forboding.[[/note]], accidentally stumbling upon Estrella's "pets" and [[SelfFulfillingProphecy setting off the events that]] [[HeKnowsTooMuch lead to her murder]].



* [[HeKnowsTooMuch She Knows Too Much]]: Marge, the drunken night club dancer, gets the ball rolling for her own murder when she accidentally stumbles onto Estrella's zombie harem. Later on another dancer, Stella, becomes suspicious of Estrella, and becomes her next target as a result.



* TooDumbToLive: Jerry.

* TooDumbToLive: Jerry. Knowing full well that something sinister happened to him in Carmelita's dressing room (although not quite remembering what), he goes to confront her, then -- at her insistence -- steps behind the curtain again without a second thought, allowing himself to be captured and hypnotized again.

* RightWayWrongWayPair: Jerry and Harold have shades of this. Jerry is a huge slacker who refuses to work and is a bit of an unfeeling jerk to Angela and women in general while Harold seems to be a nice, responsible, easygoing good guy who even suggests to Jerry that Jerry should get a job. Though it's unstated, it's likely that he owns the car and earns an income to pay the rent. Harold would probably be a much better boyfriend to Angela.

* ProfessionalSlacker: Jerry, full stop!
-->'''Jerry:''' "Her mother doesn't like anything, especially me."
-->'''Harold:''' "Well, if you get a job or something, she might change her mind, you know?"
-->'''Jerry:''' "A JOB?! Be a little discreet about that, will you, Harold? Somebody's liable to hear you. "
-->'''Harold:''' "Well, you gotta do something, you know?"
-->'''Jerry:''' "Why? The world's here to be enjoyed, not to make you depressed. That's what work does, Harold, it makes you feel depressed."

* CannotTellAJoke: The comedian in the nightclub is horrendous, especially his timing on the "my mother irons and my father steals" joke, which was really old even when this movie was made.
