* MoralEventHorizon: The alien that stays behind does so because he wants revenge on Graham for cutting off his fingers. All right, that's understandable...wait, he's going to get revenge on Graham by attacking, with murderous intent, ''Graham's son?'' Dick move.

* NightmareRetardant: One of the more infamous cases. The direction surrounding the aliens is genuinely creepy, but by the end of the movie, you realize that you were cowering in fear of a monster that's barely stronger than a normal human and would treat a garden hose like a flamethrower.

* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: The aliens. Their complete lack of armor and weapons is usually cited simply as an example of WhatAnIdiot, but some more serious hypotheses have been put forward. The two most prominent are that they aliens were actually peaceful, and only began attacking humans after the humans were aggressive towards them, and that they were actually demons defeated by holy water.

* MemeticLoser: The various versus communities tease the aliens to no end due to their laughably exploitable weakness and apparent obliviousness of said weakness. The aliens have lower survivability odds than {{RedShirts}}, and it's common to see commenters immediately assume they lose any fight featuring them.

* EverythingThereIsToKnowAboutTheCryingGame: "The aliens are wussies who can't stand water, nor get through [[MemeticMutation a F***ING PANTRY DOOR]]."

** Still another interpretation is that [[AllJustADream the alien invasion is really a dream Graham is having]] as he mentally wrestles with his loss of faith after his wife dies. This would seemingly explain odd scenes like the illustration in Morgan's book that shows people who look like them lying dead outside a burning house, the strange conversation with the army recruiter which sounds like something from a Creator/DavidLynch film, and the alien's [[WeaksauceWeakness weaknesses]] like water and the inability to open doors. It's all dream logic at work.

** "Because they *the Aliens* seem to have trouble with pantry doors." Yes. Apparently, the main threat of the movie aren't capable of getting through "DOORS."
