* AllThereIsToKnowAboutTheCryingGame: You'll be fortunate if you didn't know this twist already.

to:

* AllThereIsToKnowAboutTheCryingGame: You'll be fortunate if you didn't know this twist already. [[spoiler: This one and ''Film/TheCryingGame'' have more in common than you'd think]].
* AlternateCharacterInterpretation:
** It's never known if Ricky knows the truth about Angela or not. It could go either way whether he knew but was coerced into keeping it a secret or was kept in the dark his whole life. Or he once knew but has completely forgotten it.
** [[spoiler: Angela killing Paul. Did she reveal her true gender to him and kill him when he reacted with shock and surprise like the counsellors? Or did she just kill him straight away for kissing her without her consent?]]
* CatharsisFactor: Billy and Meg get particularly nasty deaths, but they're both so horrible that it's very satisfying. Meg in particular gets [[spoiler: stabbed through the shower wall and has her spine carved up]].



* HilariousInHindsight: [[spoiler: The UnsettlingGenderReveal as you discover Angela is actually Peter predates ''Film/TheCryingGame'' by nearly ten years]].



** AllThereIsToKnowAboutTheCryingGame[[note]] Relevant in more ways than one. [[/note]]



* SignatureScene: The reveal.

to:

* SignatureScene: The reveal.reveal, as noted many times above.
* UnintentionallySympathetic: The director had this reaction to [[spoiler: the children who got killed for throwing water on Angela]], feeling that was going a bit too far.



** The counselors’ casual attitude towards bullying is horrifying these days, but it was released back when bullying wasn’t seen as destructive as it is these days. That said, this is largely for the bullying among the boys (which in general has always been seen as more "normal" than with girls), and when Angela is picked on the counselors do take steps to stop it and make it clear it's unacceptable behavior.

* VisualEffectsOfAwesome: Mel's death by bow and arrow to his neck. To this day, the director will not say how the effect was achieved. It's that good.

* NightmareRetardant: The ending isn't as scary if you know [[spoiler:Angela’s face is just a paper mask, worn by a guy who had to get shitfaced to do the scene]].
