* CompleteMonster: [[WouldHitAGirl Frank Booth]], a {{sadist}}ic [[TheSociopath sociopath] with a penchant for random acts of rape and violence, [[EstablishingCharacterMoment is introduced]] by savagely beating and raping an abused nightclub singer and then taunting her about her mutilated husband (said mutilation was done by Frank). It later turns out that Booth kidnapped the poor woman's husband and son (killing the husband in the process) only in order to make the woman his sadomasochistic SexSlave, even cutting off her dead husband's ear and presenting it to her, just to torment her. When he figured out that Jeffrey Beaumont warned the police, he, in an act of reprisal, beats Dorothy nearly to death, strips her naked, and leaves her in front of Beaumont's house. During the ending, we also discovered he has also [[BadBoss brutally lobotomized one of his henchmen]] after having killed Dorothy's husband.

* TrueArtIsIncomprehensible: DavidLynch FTW / WTF. And this is probably Lynch's most straightforward movie (other than ''TheElephantMan'' and ''TheStraightStory'').

*** You could call this film a sort of middle ground between Lynch's more famous surreal style and the more straight forward structures of ''TheElephantMan'' and ''TheStraightStory'', since it has a plot that can be followed without too much difficulty, but plenty of creepy mind-boggling weirdness along the way.

* [[HeReallyCanAct She Really Can Act]]: Before this film, Isabella Rossellini was famous for being a model. Her performance as Dorothy pretty much knocked that on the head; even Roger Ebert, one of the few critics who hated the film, praised her performance.

* AwardSnub: The film earned a whopping one nomination (for David Lynch's direction). Luckily, Dennis Hopper was able to earn a Best Supporting Actor nomination... for ''Hoosiers''. While the latter film is a classic in its own right (and Hopper's performance was acclaimed), many now see Frank Booth as the role of Hopper's career (and perhaps one of the most memorable in film history). ''Hoosiers'' likely earned the nomination because it was a far less provocative film for voters to take.
