* ImplacableMan: Mahogany. Having been The Butcher for so long has inflicted gruesome BodyHorror upon him, but left him with the ability to shrug off all but the [[MajorInjuryUnderreaction most life-threatening injuries]] and [[SuperStrength superhuman strength.]]

* CosmicHorrorReveal: The film begins as a [[SlasherFilm Slasher]]-esque story about a musclebound maniac who murders people on a midnight subway train. The protagonist eventually defeats him, only to discover that the killer [[spoiler:was part of a city-wide conspiracy to deliver human sacrifices to the indescribable terrors that live underground. [[AndThenJohnWasAZombie He's forced to become the new Butcher]] and continue the cycle.]]

* ScrewedByTheNetwork: The movie was utterly fucked over after Lion's Gate came under new management, and the new CEO deliberately killed off all the projects his predecessor was championing. After repeated attempts to make the movie [[ExecutiveMeddling "appeal to a broader audience"]] were fiercely rebuffed by Barker and Kitamura, they decided to technically honor their contract and release the movie in 150 bargain theaters in the American Southwest. There was a campaign by Bloody-Disgusting and a few other horror sites to buy as many tickets as possible to make a point, but it was too little, too late.

* '''{{Gorn}}''': Oh ''hell'' yes. The murders, naturally, but also a ''long'' and detailed scene showing Mahogany stripping the corpses. That is, [[spoiler: cutting off their hair, removing their teeth, eyes, and nails, and hanging them on hooks]]. Remember that this is also, essentially, what actual butchers do to actual dead animals.
