* OnlyAFleshWound: Lynn refers to his shooting of a bodyguard in the back as this. Subverted in that its clear to viewers it isn't.
* OnlySaneMan: Both Holmes and David Lynn try to pass themselves off as this in Their stories. Both are probably lying but John's version sounds closer to the truth as, unlike Lynn, he is willing to admit he isn't that sane.

* TheBadGuyWins: the "WhereAreTheyNow?" end states that Eddie Nash was acquitted of the charge of having ordered the Wonderland Murders and that, at the time of the movie, he was living in California as a free man. Probably enjoying the profits of his life of crime.

* AssholeVictim: Launius and his cohorts (With the exception of the wives) were murderous, unstable drug addicts. They still didn't deserve the particular fate They get though.



* FauxAffablyEvil: Eddie Nash can be a nice guy at times but is a soulless bastard underneath it.
* HistoricalVillainDowngrade: Ron Launius was far more sociopathic and violent than he is portrayed here (Not that he's the poster child for stability here). He was a suspect in twenty-seven open homicides at the time of his death.




to:

* WhiteDwarfStarlet: John Holmes is on his way down career wise and knows it.
