** 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.

** 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.

** [[spoiler: The reveal at the end about Angela, and in particular how scary said reveal was intended to be, is considered more than a bit uncomfortable and unintentionally harmful by many trans people, trans women especially.]]

* 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]].

* UnfortunateImplications:
** The black cooks who take Mel’s bribe and agree to stay silent about the first victim are cringeworthy stereotypes even by ‘80s standards.
** TheReveal in the final scene that [[spoiler:Angela was actually male and was responsible for the murders]] in the end might make her more sympathetic, at least at first, but it comes across as [[spoiler:extremely LGBT-phobic]]:
*** Supposedly, it was [[spoiler:being RaisedAsTheOppositeGender]] that [[spoiler:drove her into madness]]. But in all the sequels, [[spoiler:Angela presents as female but still continues her murders]], implying that [[spoiler:being ''genuinely'' {{Transgender}} has something to do with being AxCrazy]].
*** In addition, the scene that shows [[spoiler:she saw her brother with his boyfriend in bed as a child]], somehow implying it has to do with [[spoiler:her murderous inclinations]], definitely doesn’t help.
*** To make matters even worse, the counselors seem more disturbed by [[spoiler:Angela being male]] than the fact that [[spoiler:she’s holding ''Paul’s [[OffWithHisHead severed head]]]].
