* DisproportionateRetribution: While Sam is a bit of a pushy jerk, nothing ever indicated that he was abusive towards his wife which makes [[spoiler: his murder rather excessive.]] She could have just asked for a divorce.

* KarmaHoudini: [[spoiler:[[PsychoLesbian Stephanie and her lover]], who kill Sam and escape. Sam wasn't the best of husbands, true, but there was no valid reason whatsoever to resort to ''murder'' instead of just divorcing him.]]



* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Lisa's fate in "Amateur Night". It is likely that she survived [[spoiler:since it seems that Lily is a succubus-like creature who only shows interest in men]], but we have no visual confirmation. After all, she was lying unconscious just a couple of feet away from the creature, so who knows?

* BastardBoyfriend: Sam from "Second Honeymoon" isn't the best of husbands to Stephanie (pressuring her to let him film her in a state of undress and complaining excessively when she refuses, possibly lying to her about who was at the door, blaming her for disappearing money and being passive-aggressive toward her). This works against him when [[spoiler: Stephanie decides to help her new lesbian lover murder him.]]
* BitchInSheepsClothing: Some characters aren't as benign as they initially appear to be.

* ADogNamedDog: ''{{Film/SiREN}}'', reveals Lily is a "Lilith". True to the original filmmakers' intent; despite many viewers' assuptions, she never was intended to be either a succubus or anything from actual mythology.

** {{Film/SiREN}} takes this further - there's a SinisterMinister running a hedonistic business using demons that killed those who summoned them but failed to control them. There are enough demons running loose due to screwed-up summoning that ''someone can make a living off it''.

* {{Yandere}}: ''{{Film/SiREN}}'' reveals [[spoiler: Lily to be this - she isn't a succubus, doesn't kill through sex, and really doesn't appreciate people trying to kill her mate, and she would've killed the protagonist's wife if he hadn't gone to live with her.]]

** [[spoiler:Last we see of Clint from "Amateur Night", poor guys being carried off somewhere by Lily, screaming the entire time.]]
** Possibly also [[spoiler: Wendy, if her thrashing was that of a disemboweled woman in agony and not a side effect of becoming another Glitch]].

to:

%%* ApocalypticLog* ApocalypticLog: ''Every single'' segment, with the exception of [[spoiler:"The Sick Thing That Happened to Emily When She Was Younger", in which nobody dies.]]



* DownerEnding: Every single segment:
** "Tape 56" ends with [[spoiler: every single member of the group dead at the hands of the "dead" man (although given that they're textbook examples of AssholeVictim, it's hard to feel much sympathy for them).]]
** "Amateur Night" ends with [[spoiler:Clive being snatched away by Lily after he witnesses the gruesome demise of his friends.]]
** "Second Honeymoon" ends with [[spoiler:Sam's murder at the hands of the mysterious stalker, followed by the revelation that the latter is Stephanie's secret lover and that they'd both conspired to kill Sam.]]
** "Tuesday the 17th" ends with [[spoiler:Wendy being disembowelled by the Glitch - perhaps even a ''second'' one - after she'd taken her friends to the woods to try and lure the Glitch out in the first place.]]
** "The Sick Thing That Happened to Emily When She Was Younger" ends with [[spoiler:James' [[{{Gaslighting}} manipulations convincing Emily that she's delusional]], and reveals that he and the aliens are experimenting on at least one other woman.]]
** "10/31/98" ends with [[spoiler: the possessed girl causing the group to get trapped in their car on a level crossing and get hit by a train.]]



** And when Gary finds [[spoiler: the bodies of his friends]], the appropriate reaction ''probably'' shouldn't be to laughingly say "Oh, fuck".
