** And again, [[spoiler:when you trap Sheila in the bedroom and Kelly thanks you before turning to the remaining Martins, and then to you with an "OhCrap" look,]] you can hear some of the film crew bursting into laughter at the closet trap from far away if you listen closely.

* 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]].

** Before that, however, [[spoiler:if you don't trap Jeff in the living room, then after he has strangled S.C.A.T. member Swanson and Kelly runs away distraught, he tries to go through the secret passageway, [[TooDumbToLive only to open the bookcase door the wrong way and end up getting burned to death]]. Sheila at first becomes distraught at the loss of her son, but her husband Victor tells her not to worry about Jeff, and she recovers in a few seconds before she, Victor, and Sarah go after Kelly.]]

* SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome: One of the accolades has to go to Lisa. Ever the ScreamingWoman, she takes her mascara purse and fights back against the Augers attacking her before escaping through the window (and all this after you have saved her). This can also count as a DyingMomentOfAwesome if you failed to save her, as not even getting her blood extracted from her by the Augers can deter her from screaming all the way to the very end. Many civilians get their blood extracted from their necks by Augers and either faint or die quickly as a result of blood loss, but not Lisa, as she is MadeOfIron and refuses to die easily, but just keeps going. Even her Auger captors/executioners are getting annoyed by her screams while they are dragging her through the secret passageway, as if to say, "''[[WhyWontYouDie Shut up and die already!!]]''" For a kid who grew up in TheNineties and saw this bathroom scene that provoked the U.S. into having the 1993 Senate hearing on video game violence that would lead the the creation of the ESRB, you might even say that it's "the cry (of Lisa) heard 'round the world".



* PlayTheGameSkipTheStory: Odds are, you're too busy looking for Augers to actually care about the story. ''25th Anniversary Edition'' fixes this problem by letting you unlock a mode that lets you watch the story details on thier own.

** Also, when SCAT member Jason barges in to the Downstairs Hallway and crouches down, you can hear some stifled laughter from the crew before he speaks through his walkie-talkie.

** In the second part of the driveway, when Weird Eddie flees from the threatening Martin cousins Jeff and Tony, if you listen hard, you can hear the boys' laughter followed by a director calling out "Cut!" from the background.

* 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.

This is probably the reason the re-release got a T for Teen rating.

* 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.
