Added DiffLines:

* SignatureScene: [[spoiler: The entire, ridiculously violent final act. The first shot of the monster's cells opening up and ambushing the facility security team in particular gets passed around often online.]]

* EnsembleDarkhorse: Marty. As "the fool," he gets most of the funniest lines, is the only one who figures out the Controllers' game, and turns into the hero in the third act. It's somewhat awesome that the guy who's half-baked into Narnia is the only guy who's actually GenreSavvy.

** Jules is also very popular, with many calling Anna Hutchison one of the standouts of the cast. A few wish she would have been the lead female instead of Dana.



* FanficFuel: Well duh. There are [[spoiler: hundreds of monsters in the cells below]]. Plenty of fics involve the protagonists releasing [[spoiler: a different monster instead of the Buckners]].
* GeniusBonus: [[spoiler: The evil Unicorn makes a lot of sense within the context of the stock slasher movie plot. The Unicorns of classical mythology were actually quite wild and violent - and the only thing that could tame one was a [[FinalGirl virgin female]]. One has to wonder how the Unicorn would have reacted to Dana]].



* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: Some reviewers said they would much rather watch a movie all about [[spoiler:the company organising the events than put any major focus on the events inside the cabin. ]]

* WhatAnIdiot: [[spoiler:All of the evil monsters can be released with the press of a single BigRedButton. The Controllers are just ''asking'' for it!]]
** Of course they probably didn't expect to have people coming in through the monster elevators.
*** Still doesn't excuse how easily accessible they made it for the individuals to push the button. They never once considered tightening the security for that?
*** Perhaps it was a requisite of the ritual? After all, everything else about the premise is already a ClicheStorm...

it! Dana does press multiple buttons before the red one, but they probably didn't expect seemed to have people coming in through the monster elevators.

* VanillaProtagonist: Dana of course. As
a requisite deconstruction of the ritual? After all, everything else about FinalGirl, she's shoe-horned into being the premise is already a ClicheStorm...boring one in the group.

* HilariousInHindsight: Anna Hutchison previously starred in ''Series/PowerRangersJungleFury'' and this was one of her first roles after this. Her situation is quite similar to actress Cerina Vincent who was in ''Series/PowerRangersLostGalaxy'' and went on to star in the similar film ''CabinFever''. Both actresses played "The Whore", both went topless, both were the first to die and both were the Yellow Ranger.

* HollywoodHomely: According to WordOfGod they deliberately gave Fran Kranz baggier clothes to wear, to hide the fact that he was [[ClarkKentOutfit surprisingly ripped underneath]]. This is also why Marty isn't shirtless in the scene at the lake.



* OneSceneWonder: Because if there's anyone who knows how to deal with unimaginable horrors, it is [[spoiler: Creator/SigourneyWeaver]].

* OlderThanTheyThink: A horror movie about making a horror movie. Characters that revolve around slowly becoming their roles. A higher being out for blood that is only satiated with a new film. We're talking about the same [[WesCravensNewNightmare movie]], right?
