* CultClassic: Its legacy as a legendarily bad FMV game with corny acting has given it a following that continues to the present day, to the point that it is being rereleased for a ''modern'' platform.

** The [[SameContentDifferentRating Teen rating]] from the 25th anniversary remaster. This came from a game which, alongside VideoGame/MortalKombat and VideoGame/Doom, was responsible for the ESRB in the first place.

*** FridgeBrilliance kicks in here. The current ESRB can tell the violence is not exactly realistic, the 'blood extraction' is laughably fake-looking, and the infamous bathroom scene is barely risque by modern standards, so [[JustifiedTrope its rating has dropped like a rock]], while Mortal Kombat has got MORE gruesome and violent to keep its high rating.

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: While the Augers were interesting enemies, it would've been more fun to see more normal vampires. We don't get those unless you let [[spoiler:one of the Martins]] escape. Wouldn't it have been cooler to see [[spoiler:the previous sleep over guests now vamped come attacking you for blood]]? Heck, they could've allowed at least [[spoiler:Cindy to be bitten so you'd have to face her undead form later]]. Even if you do save all the girls, most of them are last seen running away from augers to who knows where. It might have been cool if they all showed up to help Kelly and you for the big finale.

* AngstWhatAngst: The final sequence of the game has [[spoiler:the Martins chase Kelly around the house as you trap them one by one. Strangely, none of them seem to mind much that their family members are being trapped and killed in front of them.]]

* HilariousInHindsight: The game's "watching security cameras" mechanic becomes this in the wake of ''VideoGame/FiveNightsAtFreddys''. The whole idea of the game being the subject of hearings in regards to its content, since it is downright chaste compared to ''Mortal Kombat'' and later Mature-rated games.

* OvershadowedByControversy: One of the games that contributed to the ESRB ratings; one bathroom scene in particular led to intense Senate hearings in the United States, although the game specifically calls you out for failing to save the woman.

Added DiffLines:

* SeinfeldIsUnfunny: Younger players who try this game for the first time will probably fail to see what what the fuss was about. Like mentioned before, the "violence" is deliberately over-the-top and cartoonish, and the bathroom scene is very tame by modern standards.

** The PS4 and XBOXOne versions, since they're both on much larger discs and have beefy modern video hardware, give the best video quality ever, with not a scrap of artifacting.
