* BaitAndSwitch: In terms of perspective - the movie starts off following Allison's group of friends, but switches to the hillbillies after the groups meet at the country store.

* BloodSplatteredInnocents: Well, they're a little guilty on one count: [[spoiler: they are liable for the Sheriff's death, as they knew that the beam was unsafe. It wasn't deliberate though - they'd just neglected to repair it with the ''rest'' of the stuff going on that day, and weren't able to warn the cop until too late.]]

** When Dale is chased into the forest by the college kids, the series of shots of him running away mimic the flashback at the beginning of the film to the Memorial Day Massacre, but with the roles switched- Dale, a hillbilly, running from Chad, a college kid. [[spoiler: This foreshadows his true identity as the BigBad of the film, and of his true nature as a crazed hillbilly psycho.]]

** One of the best examples of this is when Dale is chased into the forest by the vengeful teens, which mimics chase scenes from horror movies- first person camera, weird, swingy camera movements and occasional shots of the protagonist running. He even trips and tries to hide. [[spoiler: This is also a CallBack to the memorial day massacre, and doubles as foreshadowing.]]

* PoliceAreUseless: The local sheriff is kind of an idiot. He mistakes Tucker and Dale for gay lovers and later follows them inside the murder cabin. Even the airheaded teens can't believe he's so stupid - deciding instead that he's likely working ''with'' the pair, a subtle homage to ''Film/TheTexasChainsawMassacre1974''.

* OhCrap: Multiple points in the movie. Mike make this face when he realises Tucker was just running from some bee's, right before he dies.

* TooDumbToLive: The co-eds. Special mention to the one that jumped ''into a woodchipper'' while trying to take out Tucker.

moved stuff to YMMV
* HoYay: While Dale and Tucker are apparently neither gay nor in a relationship, it is implied that they might be FriendsWithBenefits. After all, it is pointed out very clearly that their cabin is far off from civilisation, that they planned on going there alone...and that the cashier loudly reads out that they - apart from tools for fixing the cabin - purchased lube and condoms makes it seem quite clear that they had planned to amuse themselfs there in one way or another. Seeing that a lot happens that wasn't planned, they never did in the cabin what they intended to.

** His [[spoiler: love of throwing hatchets at trees]] should have been the first warning there was something...off about him.
