* VisualEffectsOfAwesome:
** The swirling clouds that form the witch's face, especially in the scene when Norman tries to read the book to her.
** The pinnacle of spectacular visuals has to be the climax, in which Norman [[spoiler:confronts Agatha's ghost, which is electrified and constantly shooting out bolts of lightning through the air and earth, with her face becoming horrifically distorted in her anger. As the scene continues, the backdrop changes from a forest to pieces of rock floating through the void]]. And it's all so very awesome to watch.

* SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic:
** "Season of the Witch" by Music/{{Donovan}}, in the trailer (also covered in the film itself.)
** And "Little Ghost" by Music/TheWhiteStripes in the credits.
** Music/JonBrion's score. ''Especially'' what plays during the film's climax.

** The premise with the legend behind Agatha seems similar to the one in ''WesternAnimation/ScobbyDooAndTheWitchsGhost'', except that in that movie [[spoiler:the witch really was evil]].

* TheWoobie: Norman. Not understood by anybody, including his own family, and largely treated like crap as a result. He's a frequent target for bullies and his father in particular often pulls no punches in criticising his behavior.

* RootingForTheEmpire: The movie's Aesop mentioned below notwithstanding, you will find quite a few people [[spoiler:rooting for Aggie after TheReveal. If not for hate towards the formerly HolierThanThou Zombies, then for the modern townspeople who seem to be a bunch of assholes, especially where Norman is concerned. ''They freaking wanted to lynch him, just like the Judge and the puritans''.]]

** [[spoiler:Not to mention, someone out there did the math and figured out they're 11th cousins twice removed. Aggie, coming from her time period, wouldn't have even had a problem dating a first cousin. So it's definitely justified. However, there really isn't any canon competition for the ship -- the movie doesn't really have any romance whatsoever, barring the humorous subplot with Courtney and Mitch.]]
