* Veda, the CreepyDoll from the pilot epoisode "The inhertiance", is ''evil'' with a capital E-V-I-L, and the girl who ends up with her is just as bad. (Is the doll influencing her? Was she already somewhat bad to begin with? Or is it a little bit of both?)

* The BodyHorror in "Faith Healer." Both the disease healed when the preacher first uses the glove, and the cancer which Jack's friend wants healed, are horrifically superb makeup jobs. (But then, the episode ''was'' directed by DavidCronenberg...)

* There were a lot of disturbing situations in the series, despite its overall cheesiness. One of the freakiest involved a body-transferring amulet. A CorruptHick with a penchant for stuffing animals (and people) is shoved down the stairs by a chair containing the decayed stuffed corpse of his grandfather and is on the verge of death; rather than dying, he transfers his mind into the corpse. Normally, this would restore the corpse to a living, intact condition, but perhaps being rotten and stuffed with sawdust was too much to overcome. When the madman reappears, he hisses eerily, "Why die?", as if even life as a decaying monster is better than death to him. (Unfortunately, captioning revealed that he actually says "Time to die," which is too trite to be really scary any more.)

* The episode with "Mesmer's Bauble" is quite disturbing. A homely guy uses it to make himself popular and handsome so that he can become the love of a singer he had a crush on. But then he decides loving her is not enough...he has to ''be'' her. Cue a scene where he is literally melting into her body. And if that wasn't bad enough, when the bauble is removed all the wishes are canceled causing him to revert from a beautiful woman to a homely man in an equally disturbing way.

* The cathedral radio of "And Now the News" is both an oddly literal version of this and a {{Meta}} implication of TheFourthWallWillNotProtectYou...since it works by making the listener hear [[MoodDissonance a cheery announcer]] [[HaveANiceDeath commentating on their horrible fate]] related to their personal fear, one they cannot evade since the radio keeps them from leaving its presence until the death has been carried out. Since this invariably occurs when the victim is tuning in while in bed, it's as if their secret nightmares have been brought to life. And since the viewer is listening to...
