* DeconstructiveParody: Of both stereotypical zombie movies and of the SalemIsWitchCountry tropes.

* PoliticallyCorrectHistory: The school play of the witch's trial is a [[StylisticSuck godawful]] InUniverse example. Brutally deconstructed in the film itself. [[spoiler: the town's [[TheFundamentalist Puritan religious elders]] sentenced a ''[[WouldHurtAChild little girl]]'' to death just because of her powers.]]

** A meta example would be [[spoiler:Mitch being the first openly homosexual character]] in a mainstream children's animated film (though this isn't revealed until the last few minutes of the film). The creators have gone on to state that this reveal is tied to the overall message of the film of not judging people.
