* RagingStiffie: All of the alien's victims get erect penises. Well, they are acting alongside Creator/ScarlettJohansson, so you can't blame them! And the film is rated 15 in the UK. How it was possible for the filmmakers to be allowed to show them is a mystery.

Well, they are acting alongside were believing that they would get some "fun time" with the alien (who's played by Creator/ScarlettJohansson, mind you), so you can't blame them!

* TheGrotesque: One of the protagonists's intended victims (the actor really does look like that, but lives a happier life than this character).

* VillainProtagonist: Most of the film is seen from the point of view of a female alien on Earth who is seducing men in Scotland. [[spoiler:Apart from what happens to the men, she allows a couple to drown and then leaves the couple's baby alone on a desolate beach.]]

* KarmaHoudini: The rapist. Especially when you consider that his behavior isn't that of someone attacking his ''first'' victim.

* AManIsAlwaysEager: All of her victims seem to have no problem getting letting a [[IHaveBoobsYouMustObey strange woman]] take them [[HoneyTrap back to her place]] a few minutes after meeting her. Even the disfigured man, who is a friendless virgin, mocked by people so much that he has to shop at night, completely lowers his guard after just being touched. And, to hammer the point home, the closest thing in the movie to a good guy, the one who looks after her for a while, can (under a certain light) be seen as taking advantage of her.
