** "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 "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.
** 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".

** Some say "Pro-Life" as well.

** 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.]]

* 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.

* LoveToHate: Harold from "Family" is genuninely sweet, almost {{Adorkable}} old guy from the neighbourhood, who in the same time is a completely deranged serial killer. It reaches the point when viewers can giddly watch [[spoiler: Fullers' executing their ColdBloodedTorture by the end of the episode]] without feeling bad for anyone.



* SeasonalRot: Season 2 is held up as this.

* SeasonalRot: Season 2 is held up as this. And with solid justification - when the first season was made, nobody knew if second one will get green-lighted. Thus all directors picked stories they wanted to do the most, creating a string of solid episodes one after another. Thus season two was made from literal leftovers, ending up with really uneven quality. It also didn't sit well with fans how much more humorous it is in general.

** While ''Imprint'' is supposed to be a serious story, some of the actors' thick accents make it kind of hilarious.
** ''The Screwfly Solution'' is rife with this, especially Amy, who's got to be the most suicidally stupid teenager ever portrayed in fiction.
