* CompleteMonster: A very rare unintentional example. [[DesignatedHero Griffin]] is an escaped convict who only shows himself to be a [[TheSociopath sociopathic]] {{Jerkass}} and {{hypocrite}} throughout the movie. A [[{{Greed}} greedy]] FatBastard whose only stated desire is to become rich, he casually abuses everyone around him, [[ChronicVillainy never passing up an opportunity to do bad]]. He claims that he wants to go legit, then five seconds later he whips his friend with a belt and steals said friend's most valued possession. He regularly beats up (and occasionally strangles) his friends, murders strangers, and [[MoralEventHorizon rapes a blind woman after throwing her father down a well]].

* DesignatedHero: Griffin was probably supposed to be an UnscrupulousHero but, possibly due to bad writing, he comes off as just a straight up villain.

* DesignatedHero: Griffin was probably The main characters are entirely unsympathetic, particularely Griffin. He is supposed to be an UnscrupulousHero but, possibly due to bad writing, he comes off viewed as a put-upon everyman who just suffers from poor impulse control, but is instead portrayed as a straight up villain.selfish, violent and hypocritical murderer and rapist. When the work page describes Griffin as "one of the most disturbingly realistic portrayals of a sociopath in film", something went wrong. This is a case so extreme that the "Hero" somehow ''hit every single criterium for CompleteMonster''. That takes a lot of effort.

* UnintentionallyUnsympathetic: As has been mentioned, Griffin was supposedly meant to be seen as a mostly decent person who was down on his luck and held back by a HairTriggerTemper, and what happens to him at the end of the movie was supposed to be [[TragicHero tragic and thought-provoking]]. Unfortunately, all sympathy for him is lost by the time he rapes a blind girl and murders her father, making the ending seem more like justice being done than anything else. And finally, he does nothing even remotely heroic or altruistic at all in the story.

* EarWorm: As cheesy and terrible as it is, "Night train to Mundo Fiiiine..." The fact that it's sung by Creator/JohnCarradine probably does nothing to hurt its catchiness.

Added DiffLines:

* NarmCharm: Again, the theme song "Night Train to Mundo Fine". Despite John Carradine's froggy, giggle-inducing singing voice, the old fella could actually carry a tune.

** The entire scene was just there to have an ironic statement by the Berma-Shave ad ("Where" "Will" "You" "Spend" "Eternity?")
