* TheScrappy: Norman's father who is an utter bastard of a parent. The fact he spends ''most'' of the film criticizing Norman for his 'odd' behavior and even ''saying'' at one point that [[WhyCouldntYouBeDifferent he wishes his son was different]] is really unbearable. However if one really thinks about it, the fact he can't understand why his son acts like this ''and'' the fact his mother (who Norman can see) died a few weeks before the events of the film, makes him more of a JerkassWoobie. Also, GoodParents generally don't react well to the sight of their 11 year old child climbing to the top of a building during a massive storm!.

* AccidentalAesop:
** An overarching theme in the movie can be "Those who don't know their history may be doomed to repeat it." [[spoiler: Once Norman and his friends tell the townsfolk how the zombies used to be [[NotSoDifferent people like them driven by fear]], the mob are pretty quick to apologetically drop their weapons]].

** The modern day townspeople cross this same line when they actually try to ''lynch'' Norman, yes they stopped when Norman's friends call them out and talk sense into them, but the mere fact that they seriously considered and attempted it, is on its own irredeemable and is on top of abusing Norman for a long time]].

* CrossesTheLineTwice: The entire sequence of Norman trying to [[spoiler:pry a book out of a corpse's hands]], eventually resorting to tactics like [[spoiler:slamming its head repeatedly against the underside of a desk to get some leverage]], and finally [[spoiler:ending up pinned under the dead man's body... At which point its tongue rolls out of its open mouth and slops across his face]].

** Given the national discussion of police brutality in TheNewTens, the line, "What are you doing, firing at civilians? That's for the police to do!" is either [[HarsherInHindsight extremely uncomfortable]], [[BlackComedy even funnier]], or both, depending on how dark your sense of humor is.

** The modern day townspeople very nearly cross this same line when they actually try to ''lynch'' Norman, stopping only when Norman's friends [[WhatTheHellHero call them out and talk sense into them]].
