* UnintentionallyUnsympathetic: Cordell may have a tragic backstory, but no more so than Candyman or Pamela Vorhees. There is nothing to suggest that his resurrection messed with his mind, and throughout the series he kills innocent people and other honest cops for no reason, making his FaceHeelTurn and InvincibleVillian status seem undeserved.

* HarsherInHindsight: After several high profile exposures of systemic police brutality in 2015, it's even more disturbing to see this film's portrayal of a police force conspiring to cover up one of their own turning psycho. Of course, given Larry Cohen's usual social commentary this also counts as quite a case of ValuesResonance.

* EvenBetterSequel: The general opinion on the second film to many. Including director Lustig himself, who considers it [[http://bloody-disgusting.com/news/23353/ the best film he's made]].
* FunnyMoments: Turkell's chatter while he and Cordell are on their way to the hideout.
--> '''Turkell:''' I got a real nice apartment. I mean, it's quiet, nobody ever comes down there. Private, y'know? Uh, you can come there. I mean, I ain't queer or nothing.
--> '''Cordell:''' ''(briefly pauses)''
** Later:
--> '''Turkell:''' You don't talk much, but that's okay. Was it that accident, the same one that screwed your face up?
--> '''Cordell:''' ''(pauses again)''
--> '''Turkell:''' ... I didn't mean to offend you, now. I'm sorry, if I did.



* MoneyMakingShot: Cordell punching through his coffin and picking up his badge in one of the trailers for ''Badge of Silence''..
* {{Narm}}: Cordell's facial expressions in the first film. Even the creators hated how he looked in that one.
