Added DiffLines:

* {{Overcrank}}: Although the film is about people who sexualise car crashes, it's notable for never, ever using this stock device to make the car crash look cool. All the crashes in the film happen in real time and are not played back from multiple angles; one minute they're driving along, next thing you know, wham.

* AssShove: In the long sex scene between Catherine and Ballard in bed, where she asks him if he's ever fantasised about having sex with Vaughan, she goes into quite explicit detail about what it would involve. According to WordOfGod, this trope is what he's doing to her while she's talking, although the moment where he actually does it is cut from some versions of the film.



** Averted in many cases, because (according to WordOfGod) the sex scenes were where the characters did most of their interaction with each other. Cronenberg deliberately shot most of them as involving penetration from behind, because he didn't want the actors to be looking at each other but he wanted the audience to be able to see both their faces in the one shot.

* BittersweetEnding: The film ends with [[spoiler:Ballard forcing his wife's car to crash. While it is implied to have helped their marriage and intimacy towards each other, Ballard's final line indicates that he's become a DeathSeeker like Vaughan, and hopes to kill himself in the next crash]].

* [[GrossOutShow Gross Out Book]]: Both the novel and film go into disturbing detail at some of the wounds inflicted to the main characters; most notably, Gabrielle's scar, which is utilized by Ballard during a sex scene.
