* CanonSue: So, three men (counting the nerdy guy at the dance) essentially vie for the affections of writer/actress Schilling's character, Natalie, who gets lots of nice close-ups, and is the central character upon whom the whole movie hinges, in spite of not being particularly interesting.
** She's also the rich daughter of the town's mayor, complete with a mansion and butler. So her accident and the subsequent drama about whether or not she should stay on life support make the evening news. How convenient.
*** Amazingly, she ''doesn't'' save the day. Her Hot Poor Boyfriend does.
** Some of the riffing picks up on this, narrating supposed pages from the script of Schilling describing how beautiful her character is for no reason.
-->'''Tom Servo (pretending to read from screenplay in Schilling's voice)''': ''Interior: bedroom. Me. Draped across the bed, tousled but tawny. I lay there, hand on my taut tummy. Still pretty, but in a worried kind of way. Zoom in on my prettiness. Closer. Closer on my prettiness.''
* EndingFatigue: Damn, that hospital climax just does not want to end. It even keeps cutting to a clock after the {{Celestial Deadline}} passes. "The clock doesn't figure at all, stop showing the clock! You spent that nickel already!"

* TheUntwist: Natalie's mom is [[spoiler:the Estevez reaper in disguise]]; the first hint of this is when she can [[spoiler:see the characters' 'souls']] when no one else can. This trope is largely dependent upon the [[Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000 MST3K]] treatment because, due to the usual level of quality featured on the show, viewers might have assumed it was just an oversight in the script.

** The infamous "Mom-peeping-on-Natalie" scene, even if it is the Soultaker in disguise.

* {{Narm}}: Done by a camera shot, interestingly. In the scene where Natalie is trapped in the elevator with the Estevez soultaker, the camera slowly rotates whenever she is on-screen. At first the viewer might think they're trying for a DutchAngle effect, but it keeps turning and turning until eventually she's completely upside-down. It just ends up looking silly.

** "There is no [[Music/LedZeppelin Stairway to Heaven]]."

** The bigger one is how Zach ends up with Natalie's soul ring in his (living) hand after reviving himself. I believe the MST3K crew said: "whoa movie, huddle-up in the middle here, let's work this out..."

Added DiffLines:

** Brad, at least after he becomes a soultaker, becomes more competent, witty and likeable than he was when he was alive. He does more useful things for the protagonists that they do.

*** They said you can't ''kill'' a Soultaker. They said nothing about knocking them out.

!! From the 1990 film



!! From the [[{{Anime/SoulTaker}} anime]]
* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9v6iXIo88ns Hell yeah!]]
** Given [[JAMProject who performs it]], it's to be expected.
* FetishFuel - Komugi is in a different fetish-y outfit in almost every episode, sometimes in more than one per episode.
