* TrueArtIsIncomprehensible - For the kind of movie it is, there are some ''very'' surreal moments. Like the scene showing Fern's transformation into Vylette immediately.

* WhatAnIdiot: Invoked in-universe, as this is pretty much Julie's reaction to Courtney upon learning she gagged Liz with a jawbreaker.

* IdiotPlot: To quote [[http://rogerebert.suntimes.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/19990219/REVIEWS/902190302 RogerEbert]]: "Julie could end it all by speaking out, but she delays, because that would not be convenient for the plot." And the police officer who completely ignores the fact that a ''woman'' called the school and not some random male rapist. In defense to Julie, it would've been her word against Courtney, Marcie, and Fern/Vylette, and Julie didn't exactly have any evidence to prove Courtney was responsible.

* {{Too Dumb To Live}}: Courtney. When Fern/Vylette pissed her off, ''why didn't Courtney just find out a way to blame her?'' The fact that Fern had conveniently disappeared beforehand would have made it easy for Courtney to pawn the murder off on her!

to:

* {{Too Dumb To Live}}: OneSceneWonder: Jeff Conaway as Mr. Fox, Marcie's father. Even as the sensitive father who watches Oprah and his perceived [[InformedWrongness "corniness"]] (by Marcie, anyway), in his all too brief encounter with his daughter, [[GenreSavvy he was completely right]] [[BetaBitch about her position in life (and in the movie).]]
* TearJerker: Even with all of the movie's [[BlackComedy darkness]] and [[TrueArtIsIncomprehensible incomprehensibility]], the scene where Julie sees Liz's ghost emerging from her pool is rather sad, especially for those who lost a friend in childhood.
** The scene where the school learns of Liz's death would count, too.

* HoYay: Fern/Vylette really comes off as a StalkerWithACrush towards Liz Purr. She obsesses over her, describes her as perfection and spends all her class time gazing at the beauty marks on the back of Liz's neck.
