Added DiffLines:

* PolishedPort: The updated releases for the CD 32X, 3DO and home computers featured much-improved video quality over the blocky, stuttery Sega CD original version of the game.

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

Added DiffLines:

* 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.

* FridgeLogic: Who the hell places the Override Cable IN PLAIN SIGHT IN THE HALLWAY?!
** Probably someone who believes in hiding in plain sight.
* 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.
* {{Narm}}: A lot of the dialogue, but the ending especially.
** This was actually invoked, too. The "Violence" in the game was deliberately designed to be so cartoonish and over-the-top that nobody would possibly think to try it in real life. The crew was even laughing on-stage at how ridiculous it was.

* 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.]]

* 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 spare the woman.
