* WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids: In-Universe example. Despite Cochran intending for his horror marathon to be watched by children, [[Film/Halloween1978 the original Halloween]] is stated to be in their lineup. Even if it is [[Bowdlerization edited for television]], how many parents would allow their kids to watch an R rated movie?

* VindicatedByHistory: While the film was absolutely savaged at first and flopped at the box office, it has since picked up a fairly significant [[CultClassic cult following]] for its unique plot, fantastic score and atmosphere, and VisualEffectsOfAwesome.

* CompleteMonster: [[BigBad Conal Cochran]] is the [[CorruptCorporateExecutive CEO]] of Silver Shamrock Novelties, a company known for its Halloween masks, which it shipped all over the United States. Cochran had built these masks with a computer chip made from a fragment of Stonehenge. When Silver Shamrock's commercial would air on Halloween night, the chip was to unleash a lethal swarm of insects and snakes, killing the wearer and anyone in the immediate vicinity. Cochran is shown demonstrating how these masks work on an innocent family, causing them to be poisoned and eaten. His plan is to [[WouldHurtAChild kill thousands of children]] all over the country, partially to bring back the darker aspects of the Celtic festival Samhain, which he connects to witchcraft, but also just because he considers this [[ForTheEvulz mass murder to be a fun joke]], the best ever in fact, because it's a joke on the children.
