* WrongGenreSavvy: The zombie survivalist hipsters. Watching "Resident Evil" and "Film/NightOfTheLivingDead" thirty thousand times, unfortunately, doesn't translates to being an effective zombie slayer. [[spoiler:They kill a lot of innocent people and get killed by the monsters because they have no damn clue of how these monsters actually function, no idea of how to differentiate infected from non-infected, and StormingTheCastle doesn't works if you have no idea of where the castle actually ''is''.]]

* ShootTheShaggyDog: Not the ending, thankfully, but [[spoiler:the sideplot with Amy hitching a ride with a bunch of zombie nerds hoping to kill some zeds AND the sideplot of David helping to break out some of the friends he'd made during a memory blackout at the quarantine end in the zombie nerds accidentally murdering the escapees in a panic, which draws the ACTUAL zombies to their location and murders them all.]]

* AffablyEvil: [[spoiler: Dr. Tennet]] is always extremely polite and professional, to the point of supplying coffee and tea during his villain monologue. He explains that he honestly thinks that he's doing the best thing for humanity.

* AffablyEvil: [[spoiler: Dr. Tennet]] is always extremely polite and professional, to the point of supplying coffee and tea during his villain monologue. He explains that he honestly thinks that he's doing the best thing for humanity. The closest he gets to being mean-spirited is calling John a manchild for, in Tennet's opinion, refusing to accept what he believes is a good idea in [[spoiler:uniting America under fear of the 'other by way of a zombie threat]].


Added DiffLines:

* GenghisGambit: [[spoiler:"Them"'s partial reasoning for causing an otherworldly zombie outbreak is in uniting America and the world against a threat of outsiders - in this case, the possibility your neighbor is now a mutant brain-eating zombie infected by spiders. Unfortunately, this both means importing in extradimensional monsters who are fully aware of their formerly-human status and is also about using paranoia to divide and conquer humanity... ...and take over the world in case the monsters spread.]]

* HeroicSacrifice: [[spoiler: According to Marconi, a sacrifice is required to stop the infection once and for all. Dave thinks it's him. At the end it turns out to be Molly, who jumps in front of a bullet headed for Amy while time is frozen at the climax. The footage of her death and Amy crying over her make the world realize that Undisclosed isn't full of infected as everyone had thought.]]

Still living in [[CityWithNoName [Undisclosed] ]] with John ([[LateArrivalSpoiler who (probably) didn't die at the end]]), things seem to be going fine [[NightmareFuel until Dave wakes up with a large spider-monster injecting him with paralysis poison and trying to burrow into his skull.]] After a narrow escape wherein a police officer is infected, a massive outbreak occurs, and John [[MakesAsMuchSenseInContext accidentally texts photos of his genitals to Dave]], ''[[FromBadToWorse things somehow get worse]]''. Despite the amount of brain-hugging spiders, gruesome deaths, grotesque monsters and [[NauseaFuel nausea]]/[[NightmareFuel nightmare fuel]], [[HilarityEnsues things get pretty damn funny]].

* {{Malaproper}}: John. A lot.
--> John said, "That'll be that, the lid will be off their whole charade."\\
It took me a moment to figure out what John had said because he pronounced it "sha-rod."
