* WalkingShirtlessScene: Curtis gets one after having terribly, creepy, hallucinogenic bondage sex with Therese, with scratch marks and bumps all across his chest.

* NotHelpingYourCase: Curtis Craig is simply a prime example of what not to do when a serial killer runs loose. He barges into a crime scene Detective Powell is investigating, he finds evidence that he does not hand over, and he acts hostile to Detective Powell when he should be trying to explain to her why he is not the murderer she thinks he is. He is not a murderer, but the Hecatomb is one. Too bad Curtis would have had a hard time proving that anyway.

* AlmostKiss: [[spoiler:Curtis]] and [[spoiler:Trevor]], in which [[spoiler:Trevor]] stops for some reason. [[spoiler:[[KillTheCutie Trevor then dies afterwards]], [[NeverGotToSayGoodbye much to Curtis' anguish.]]]]

* ChickMagnet: There's only two people in the office who ''aren't'' into Curtis in some form. Hell, even Trevor [[spoiler:and Bob, [[WordOfSaintPaul allegedly]]]] wants him.



* CruelAndUnusualDeath: There's quite a few in this game. In one given example, [[spoiler: Therese is stabbed, gagged, held up by a hook and electrocuted to death ''in her own blood,'' with her cries of help being ignored as people assume she's working with a client]].



* TheCutie: Trevor Barnes, Curtis' [[Adorkable adorably]] [[DeadpanSnarker snarky]] best friend who's always there for him, no matter what.



* FlippingTheBird: Curtis does one to himself in the mirror for some reason.



* TallDarkAndHandsome: Why, our protagonist Mr. Curtis Craig, of course! He's quite the apple of many of his co-workers eyes at his job, and it isn't that hard to see why.



* ThisLoserIsYou: The game flip-flops on this with Curtis. On one hand, almost the entire office has the hots for him (maybe even Bob if you believe what his actor has to say about the character,) but on the other hand he's still a geeky loser and TheChewToy, regular referred to as "Rat Boy"

[[spoiler:And Curtis slowly starts to turn into an alien horror as he does not belong in this world.]] WordOfGod softens this ending a bit into a BittersweetEnding: [[spoiler: Curtis isn't mutating, he's acquired VoluntaryShapeshifting powers as a result of interacting with his homeworld. But along with this new superpower, he'll never fit in with humanity, be tempted to use it for dark purposes, is probably struggling with sex addiction and various mental health issues, and will never be completely happy with Jocelyn.]]

The sequel to Creator/{{Sierra}}'s ''VideoGame/{{Phantasmagoria}}'', subtitled ''A Puzzle Of Flesh'', released in 1996. The game centers on the escapades of Curtis Craig, a nebbishy, rat-loving, apparently ordinary office worker at large corporation [=WynTech=]. The game starts off as a typical day for him, but soon increasingly weird things occur, with Curtis receiving hellish visions, and then the mysterious and brutal murder of a coworker occurring. Curtis becomes suspicious that [=WynTech=] is somehow behind what's happening to him, and launches his investigation while desperately trying to hold onto his own sanity.

* ArtificialHuman: [[spoiler: Curtis, to replace the ''real'' Curtis. As a result he has a hard time connecting with people, but gets the consolation prize of being sexually desirable to everyone he meets man or woman.]]



** Curtis finds evidence of a conspiracy. He does not even turn over the evidence to the cops. In fact, there is only one cop he interacts with. On his side, he acts like some raving loony to her. On her side, she dimisses his claims, does not even try to investigate them, and clearly thinks he is full of it and worse. He also tries to communicate his findings to his therapist and even shows her some concrete evidence. His therapist thinks that he is paranoid, delusional, prone to psychotic episodes and has some capacity for violence. To be fair, he was cetainly acting hysterical towards her at some points. His therapist does believe his claims in the end when [[spoiler: she discovers her phone is bugged. Unfortunately, the Hecatomb kills her off shortly afterwards]].
