** "Dreams in the Witch-House": The WickedWitch of the episode habitually sacrifices babies for her magic rituals. She uses her abilities to force various men to kill them for her, destroying countless more lives in the process. She also uses a ShapeshiftingSeducer trick to have sex with the protagonist by impersonating his neighbor, apparently to further mess with his mind for kicks. It's later discovered that there were at least 80 baby corpses hidden in the walls of the house going back all the way to the 1600s, so she has been willingly doing this for centuries and for seemingly no other reason than ForTheEvulz.

** Some say "Pro-Life" as well. Doubly so because it crosses over into a FantasticAesop as it appears to make a pro-abortion stand before arguably turning it into a pro-life one. A young girl from a deepy religious family takes refuge in an abortion clinic when her fundamentalist father and his sons proceed to first hole up outside, and then storm the building. In the end it turns out that the girl was raped by [[spoiler:some sort of demon and gives birth to a baby hellspawn which then shares an endearing moment with its father.]]

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: "The Screwfly Solution" had a rather nice psychological thriller vibe to it, at least till you get to the end. [[spoiler: Where it is revealed that the virus was created by aliens.]]

** In the episode "Right to Die", there's a tender scene in which a married couple - not hugely wealthy, not in showbiz or anything, just an ordinary married couple - take a bath together. They're gazing into each others' eyes, smiling gently in close-up... and then the camera pulls back to reveal that the wife is sporting the most comically enormous set of breasts imaginable. If you didn't know better, you'd think this was a ''Film/TheNakedGun''-style sight gag. As it is, it destroys any claim the scene might have had to emotional realism. It also lets you know just [[{{Fanservice}} why this particular actress was hired]]; the rest of the episode demonstrates it wasn't for her thespian talents.


Added DiffLines:

** "The Washingtonians" was roundly mocked for a premise that should be horriffic - a secret society of cannibals who even eat children. However, they have to dress up as snarling colonial-era Americans for their dinner parties, and [[PresidentEvil George Washington himself being revealed as a cruel monster]] who wanted to create a "cannibal republic" is so outlandish that there's no way to take it seriously.

** "Sounds Like" has lots of worms. And the worse thing is that you can ''hear'' them [[HellIsThatNoise eating flesh]].

** From the premiere, "Incident On and Off a Mountain Road," the silent EvilAlbino SerialKiller dubbed "Moonface" lives in a remote cabin in the woods. He periodically kidnaps people from the nearby road to brutally torture and murder them, taking care to dispose of their cars so no one will catch him. He typically uses an electric drill in his torture cellar to perforate his victims through the skull, [[EyeScream eyes first]]. Then he crucifies the corpses and displays them around his lawn. He has also kept an elderly man captive for an untold amount of time to the point that the guy went completely crazy and [[StockholmSyndrome became slavishly devoted to him]]. There are even some [[WouldHurtAChild infant skeletons]] stashed around his cabin, still in their baby carriages.

** From "The V Word," Mr. Chaney is a blood-thirsty vampire who sees his new transformation into a creature of the night as a great opportunity to murder people to his heart's content. He was also a pedophile before his undeath who sexually abused many boys at the school he worked at. He slaughters a mortuary's entire staff, turns two teenage boys in the age group he previously targeted to become his new obedient vamp minions and tries to force one of them to murder his little sister to prove himself to his new "master".

* HilariousInHindsight: In 2017, on ''Series/TheDailyShowWithTrevorNoah'', Trevor Noah mocked allegations by the new President Donald Trump of massive voter fraud because dead people were registed to vote, commenting that "Dead people getting up to vote? That's the weirdest episode of ''Series/TheWalkingDead'' ever!" That's essentially the whole plot of this series' episode "Homecoming", made about a decade earlier, in which zombified U.S. soldiers rise from the dead to voice their discontent through the electoral process.

* NarmCharm: Creator/JohnLandis was fully aware what sort of project he's participating in and what budget he will have at his disposal. This, combined with his trademark tongue-in-cheek attitude, makes his episodes twice as good, because they are perfectly self-aware about being cheaply made TV horror spoofs.
