* BeautyInversion: Sara Paxton dressed down, cut her hair short and wore no makeup.

* BeautyInversion: Sara Paxton dressed down, cut her hair short and wore no makeup. Could also be considered HollywoodHomely, as she is still blonde, slender, and generally pretty.



* FrightDeathtrap: The ghosts aren't able to do much more than move small objects and cause whispering on the physical plane, so [[spoiler: Madeline and the dead guest have to rely on scaring Claire into tripping down stairs, and triggering an asthma attack.]]

Though whether Madeline truly intended to harm Claire is unclear.]]



* MaybeMagicMaybeMundane: The movie is intended to be capable of being interpreted as the ghosts existing or not. Claire is already naive, paranormal investigation is that's stated to be capable of making people imagine things, and later, not sleeping well. [[spoiler: Claire and Luke were also drunk the only time Luke encountered the ghost, which was also when Claire's more severe encounters happened.]]

Though if you spot the aforementioned FreezeFrameBonus at the end of the film, this could be seen as lending credence to the perceived supernatural elements.]]

* ObliviousToLove: Luke all but tells Claire he loves her, and Claire says she has a fun idea... which is to go ghost hunting in the basement.
* The movie is about an allegedly real haunted building. Accordingly, Claire doesn't just run away after possibly-supernatural events occur, especially since its closing soon; leaving her post because of events that scared her a bit would probably make getting her next job pretty difficult.
