* Holden's football catch at the beginning of the movie.
* How Marty [[spoiler:survives. He hacks apart the zombie with a trowel.]]
** [[spoiler:His heroic return in saving Dana from the redneck zombie is also awesome in how he comes out of nowhere with the giant bong as triumphant music plays his reappearance.]]
* The Japanese schoolgirls [[spoiler:exorcise the spirit attacking them and turn it into a happy little frog. Not a single one of them dies]]. They're all ''nine''. And ''every'' other ritual ends in failure. Most of those failures apparently involve less PowerOfFriendship and more exploded buildings
** Doubles as a [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming heartwarming moment]]. Well, [[MoodWhiplash until]] [[spoiler: Sitterson starts cussing at them]].
* [[BloodyHilarious The entire finale]]. [[spoiler: Think of any monster you have seen in a horror movie. [[AttackOfTheFiftyFootWhatever Giant]] [[ReptilesAreAbhorrent snakes]], [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent werewolves]], [[OurGhostsAreDifferent ghosts]], [[OurZombiesAreDifferent zombies]], {{Giant Spider}}s, [[MonsterClown killer clowns]] and so forth (even [[{{Unicorn}} killer unicorns]]!). Now imagine them all onscreen at the same time. The finale is pure genius.]]
** Hell, just the fact that [[spoiler:Film/TheCrawlingHand]]--'''''[[SoBadItsGood of all friggin' things]]'''''--[[spoiler:gets the first kill in the facility.]]
* Homage to [[spoiler: The Shining - the two dead girls, who appear in one of the elevator cells of horror. "Come Play With us....forever and ever and ever....."]]
** As well as [[spoiler:one elevator just spewing blood.]]
* Meta-example - almost all of the monsters in the movie were actually created or people made up as them, with only minor CGI touch-ups. The only genuine exceptions were the ones that needed to fill up the screen when the directors felt there was empty space, such as the wailing wraith and the massive snake. Yes, they put together the Merman, and the werewolf, and made up a horse into a unicorn. Now that is awesome.
