* MisaimedMarketing: In the mid-'90s, this was repackaged on [=VHS=] as one of Fox's "Family Features", even though it's rated PG-13. Guess that makes [[spoiler: Jim's death at Edward's blades a Family Unfriendly Death]].

* MoralEventHorizon: Jim is always a mundane creep and one of the least remarkable Burton villains but once he attempts to murder Edward and hits Kim for daring to stand against him he shows that he is as vile as they come, and they come very vile.

** Joyce started a smear campaign that ruined an innocent person's life accusing Edward of rape for the crime of not giving in to her seductive techniques. This is one insecure human being.

* EpilepticTrees: Is this a huge metaphor for mental disorders? If so, that makes it ten times more disturbing and depressing.

* BaitAndSwitch: It varies between viewers, but when this troper watched the movie for the first time, he thought Peg was the Grandmother. Since Peg had more screentime than the rest of the cast and was the first to meet Edward. [[spoiler: When it turned out to be Kim,]] it became this for this troper.

** This exchange, used in most of the trailers, sums it up perfectly.
-->'''Kim''': Hold me.
-->(Edward fails to put his arms around her)
-->'''Edward''': I can't.

* UnfortunateImplications: The [[spoiler: death of Jim at the end of the film, particularly when taken into consideration alongside Burton's later admission that there ''is'' an element of revenge fantasy in there]], as explained in interviews collected in the 'Burton on Burton' book.
