* ''Witchfinder General'' was also released as ''The Conqueror Worm'' despite having little to do with the Creator/EdgarAllanPoe poem, although a portion of it is recited toward the movie's end. VincentPrice was in it, so presumably it was titled that way to attract fans of all the Creator/RogerCorman-directed Poe adaptations he'd starred in.

* There are [[SimilarlyNamedWorks three unrelated films]] called ''Madhouse'', only one of which is actually set in a mental institution. The 1990 John Larroquette and Kirstie Alley film is about a house being overrun by uninvited guests that could figuratively be called a "madhouse". In the 1974 VincentPrice film, it's a plot point that Price's character ''was'' once in a mental institution, but no scenes actually take place there. The Vincent Price one was originally going to be called ''The Revenge Of Dr. Death'' or ''The Return of Dr. Death'', both of which would have been more descriptive of the plot, but the producers thought it would be mistaken for a sequel; It didn't help that there had been a recent film called ''Dr. Death, Seeker of Souls'' either.

* ''Film/TheIncrediblyStrangeCreatures The Incredibly Strange Creatures Who Stopped Living and Became Mixed-Up Zombies!!?'' (famously riffed on ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000'') is about a single ordinary (if poorly written) human being who gets lightly scarred by acid and [[BrainwashedAndCrazy hypnotized to become a mindless killer]], remaining 100% alive and un-mixed-up for the entirety of the story (at least until he's shot and killed by the police, at which point he stops living and becomes dead).

** Though not descriptive of the story (such as it is) the title is a fairly accurate description of the film itself (such as it is).

*** And as of the Disney's [[{{Retcon}} "Legends" retcon]], Super Star Destroyers are now a kind of Star Dreadnaught and not Star Destroyers at all, despite still being called "Super Star Destroyers".

* ''Franchise/ThePinkPanther'' movies are not about a feline. The "Pink Panther" is a diamond that plays a major role in some, but not all, of the films. The cartoon panther that originally appeared in [[Film/ThePinkPanther1963 the first film]]'s credits, also called [[WesternAnmation/ThePinkPanther The Pink Panther]], took on a life of its own as a film and TV cartoon character and advertising mascot.

* ''The Curse Of The Cat People'' doesn't involve a curse, and you'd be hard-pressed to see what it had to do with any "cat people" unless you saw ''Cat People'', the film it was a sequel to, first: Irena, one of the characters from the first film, appears as a ghost in the sequel... But her involuntary shape-shifting into a cat is never brought up or seen, and it's totally irrelevant to the plot at any rate.

* ''Film/Holocaust2000'': The movie doesn't take place in [[Trope2000 the year 2000]], and the plot is not related to the Holocaust (it's only briefly mentioned when the villain explains his plans for a ''nuclear'' holocaust). Instead, it's a ReligiousHorror film about TheAntichrist set in the 1970s.

* ''Film/TheBrainThatWouldntDie'' doesn't feature a BrainInAJar: The title is most likely referring to the character Jan, who spends most of the film as a living severed head, not just a brain. You could also argue that "Wouldn't Die" should be "''Couldn't'' Die": "Wouldn't" implies that she refuses to die, when in fact she's being kept alive against her will and repeatedly begs for someone to kill her. The WorkingTitle was the more accurate ''The Head That Wouldn't Die'', but the film makers decided to follow a trend of sci-fi b-movies with "Brain" somewhere in the title.

* No one ever gets strangled in ''Night Of The Strangler'', though there are several murders committed through other methods. It also takes place over the course of several days rather than a single night.
