** Seeing Andrew suffer at the hands of his dad and hang out with his superpowered friends is especially funny since Dane [=DeHaan=] is playing Harry Osborn in the ''Film/TheAmazingSpiderMan2''. More hilarious is seeing him destroy a spider with his power. Also HarsherInHindsight - we also see Andrew grow a taste for beating the crap out of his best friends and generally growing more insane by the day, partially thanks to his violent father.

* HarsherInHindsight: Andrew's downfall seems eerily prophetic of Josh Trank's CreatorBreakdown during the development of ''Film/FantasticFour2015.'' Things start off good for him with the success of ''Chronicle,'' his [[PrimaDonnaDirector on-set behavior]] (which was allegedly caused by ExecutiveMeddling) [[RoleEndingMisdemeanor costing him his role as director of a]] ''Franchise/StarWars'' spin-off film, and the film's overall reception and [[BoxOfficeBomb box office numbers]] have made the film a potential CareerKiller for him. Trank's behavior even apparently goes back to the production of this film itself, possibly similar to how constantly abusive Richard was from the beginning.

** This may be justified in that, as the movie progresses, Andrew spends less time consciously directing the TK movement of his camera(s) when alone. It seems that he is unconsciously controlling it, like Matt's forcefields. This leads him to unthinkingly take it with him when he kills the bullies and robs the convenience store.

* MoralEventHorizon: Richard crosses it when he [[spoiler:blames a comatose Andrew for Andrew's mom's death. He even tries to punch him while he was still in a coma. That is if there is any doubt that he did it by abusing and emotionally destroying Andrew in the first place.]]
** Andrew himself is a more complicated example. [[spoiler: He could be said to have crossed it when he caused that car-crash that left the driver at best hospitalised and at worst dead, but he is so broken and emotionally damaged that it is hard to lose all sympathy for him.]]
** The hoodlums who assaulted and beaten Andrew were cruel enough, that [[spoiler:their deaths didn't feel as particularly sad.]]

* SleeperHit: The film had a modest budget for it's type and didn't have a whole lot of advertising, and was even dumped into theaters in January ''on Super Bowl weekend'', but the positive reception and word-of-mouth not only helped make it a big hit, but also gave some of the relatively then-unknown cast and crew their big break and are now currently involved with various future Hollywood productions. (For example, the aforementioned casting of Dane [=DeHaan=] in ''Film/TheAmazingSpiderMan2''.)
