* The sequel's reels don't seem to be any better...
** Tied up in a flooded basement with live wires at the ready.
** Hooded and hung upside down over a swamp ''filled with gators''.
** Crucified and set on fire.
** Tied to a dentist's chair and their teeth get mutilated with an industrial drill.
** Nailed on a floor with rats being trapped under a hot container of some kind. Said rats escape by eating their way out.
** Buried in snow up to their faces [[KillItWithIce to freeze to death]]. The worst is the victim who hasn't died yet, and turns her eyes toward the camera in the final shot.

* Also in the sequel, we finally find out what happens if [[spoiler: a child fails to complete a tape, as [[EnfanteTerrible Zach]] does in the finale after Deputy So-And-So breaks his projector.

Then he torches the house and moves on.]]

While [[spoiler: early on he was seen as an average, if angry kid]], [[spoiler: he]] really goes off the rocker and begins to show [[spoiler: sociopathic levels of cruelty and assholish ness even going so far as to state that his movie would "be the best one yet"]], talk about [[spoiler: EnfanteTerrible]].

* The music that plays when Ellison burns the reels and projector and during the credits. Listen closely, you'll hear what sounds like the distorted murmur of children in the background, and you can't quite separate it from the rest of the movie.

* The overall sense of unease in the film, because there is a lot of movie shots were Ellison is alone in the night, with half the screen showing a darkened corridor. The audience keeps expecting something to suddenly crawl out of the shadows, and turning on a light or waking up his wife wouldn't have helped Ellison at all.
