* ArtisticLicenseEngineering: The kind of catastrophic ElevatorFailure depicted is ''very'' unlikely because of the multiple safety mechanisms in modern elevators. In the first place, there are usually multiple hoist cables, which can individually hold up the car's entire weight and collectively hold up multiple times the car's weight. It would take a ''real'' freak accident to sever them all at once. If the computer controlling the elevator detects anything unsafe, it will shut off the motor and apply the brakes, which include both a clamp that closes on the pulley above the car, and safety brakes underneath the car that jam a metal brake into the guide rails along which the elevator travels. Lastly, there is a set of counterweights on the opposite end of the cables that attatch to the car, which weigh slightly more than an empty car and slightly more than a full car, so that even if every other safety system failed the ascent or descent would accelerate only slowly, and the car would eventually come to a rough but hopefully survivable stop. Whatever the case, the elevator would not immediately plunge uncontrolled down the shaft in the manner depicted just from some cables snapping. Granted, a supernatural curse could contrive such a catastrophic failure across multiple systems, but the police talk as if the cables snapping was the only thing that caused the accident.

* DemotedToExtra: Kazami in the anime. Despite being one of Kouchi's friends and a member of the mystery-solving gang in the manga, he's pretty much sent off-screen after the beginning of the anime. [[Spoiler: And then he starts killing people.]] In a literal sense, [[spoiler: Chibiki]] becomes this in the film adaptation.

* LoveDodecahedron: The chain of attraction within the group of main characters is hinted in the anime: Teshigawara -> Izumi -> Kouichi -> Mei. [[AllLoveIsUnrequited The last one may be reciprocated]]. Yukari Sakuragi and Aya Ayano seemed to be interested in Kouichi too [[spoiler: but both girls die]], and Kazami apparently had a thing for Yukari, [[spoiler: as the audience learned [[{{Yandere}} when he went nuts partly because of it]].]] [[spoiler: Izumi explains Takako's emotional instability is due to their previous trip to the beach, wherein Junta was very horrifically killed. While everyone else is horrified speach less, Takako screams very loudly, and is very nearly inconsolable at his funeral in the next episode. After surviving an encounter with the homicidal inn-keeper, she also admits to Izumi if the other girl had died ''too'', she'd probably not be able to keep going her self.]]

** The BeachEpisode features many cute teenagers of both genders in swimsuits. Then, [[spoiler: Nakao suffers a fatal aneurysm when he's swimming.]] ''Then'' [[spoiler: Nakao's lifeless body is accidentally chopped up by a speeding boat's propeller.]] And the kid's still swimsuit-clad schoolmates, including the very pretty Izumi whose light-blue bikini flaunts her curves and the PrettyBoy Kouichi who is [[ShirtlessScene just in his swim trunks]], can only look in horror.
** The [[spoiler: massacre at the inn]] takes place one night and it involves many good-looking teenagers [[spoiler: snapping and killing one another in rage and despair after Mei is believed to be the Extra.]] It includes "lovely" scenes like [[spoiler: the cute Matsuko being almost blown up when she's in a top crop and shorts]], [[spoiler: a shot of Takako's long legs as she's about to be slowly strangled with cables]], [[spoiler: the PrettyBoy Makoto having his long hair blow in the wind right before he's fatally incinerated]], etc.

* ArtisticLicenseEngineering: The instance of ElevatorFailure focuses on the accident which causes the cables holding the elevator up to snap, but for the elevator to freefall down the shaft would also require the safety breaks to malfunction, a very unlikely occurence. This mechanism, invented by Elisha Otis all the way back in 1852, causes the elevator to stick in the shaft the instant the tension goes out of the cables and was the main selling point by which he was able to convince prospective buyers that elevators were safe. Perhaps the curse could have contrived a way for this safety to fail, but the police don't even mention the safety mechanism in their report. There are rare instances in which elevators kill people, but these accidents tend to involve the elevator mangling people who were caught between the car and the shaft, or ascending or descending in an uncontrolled fashion, rather than from the car going into freefall.
