* CaptainObviousTwist: Francis’ story ends in [[spoiler:a mental hospital]], going back to the original setting of him talking to a man in the park, and, as the film is fairly short, you’d probably recall all too easily at this point that the man got Francis to tell his story by telling him about ghosts harassing him, so the twist is incredibly predictable and turns the WhamShot of [[spoiler:the mental hospital and the characters from Francis’ story]] into a somewhat underwhelming ‘wham’.

* EndingFatigue: We see the TwistEnding. Then we see the asylum. We see all the patients [[spoiler:who appeared in Francis’ story]] and then some. Then it gets inverted: [[spoiler:the head of the asylum declares he can cure Francis]], and the film ends abruptly.

* TheUntwist: It's obvious that the murders are conducted by Cesare, under Dr. Caligari's orders. [[spoiler:It's actually a RedHerring for the ''real'' twist, that the entire scenario was AllJustADream]].

* EnsembleDarkhorse: Cesare isn't on screen for very long but he's arguably the most memorable character in the film.

* ExecutiveMeddling[=/=]WhatCouldHaveBeen: Dr. Caligari and Cesare were originally intended to be [[spoiler:real killers]], except that the producers thought this would have made the film too macebre, so they insisted Wiene to make the film's events [[spoiler:AllJustADream]]. This is a rare example of these two tropes being put to good use: not only did it have one of the most masterfully executed {{Twist Ending}}s in film history, but it also [[TropeMaker established]] PsychologicalHorror in film.
