* DamselInDistress: Casey.

* ExpectingSomeoneTaller: [[spoiler:Michael's reaction to meeting Jordan face to face.]]

* ShoutOut: Casey's favorite movie is [[spoiler:Film/{{Bridesmaids}}]]. Jordan says that she loves it and that she thinks she saw it about 100 times.
* [[spoiler: SlashersPreferBlondes]]
* SoundtrackDissonance: "Puttin on the Ritz" playing on the car radio as Casey wakes up in the trunk. Plus Michael bopping along to it like a normal guy rather than a psycho. Much of the nice songs playing on the car radio throughout the movie, in fact "Karma Chameleon" by Culture Club is also featured while [[spoiler:[[Casey is getting prepped in Michael's lair where he scalps the victims]]. The upbeat harmonica in contrast with the fear in Casey's eyes as well as the setting is extremely jarring.
* TooDumbToLive: [[spoiler: The driver Alan Denado (Michael Imperioli) who noticed the white paint leaking from Micheal's car. It's bad enough that he followed Michael to an area with no people around. He also pulled out his cell in clear view where Michael can see him. And if that wasn't bad enough, after getting knocked out and waking up in the trunk of the car, he screams like crazy which sealed his fate. Strike three.]]
* TookALevelInBadass: [[spoiler: Jordan.]]
** [[spoiler: Also Casey who went from a girl teased by her friend for not using profanity, to a "fighter" who comes up with the idea to lock Michael in his underground lair forever.]]
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: Jordan and Casey.
* TomboyishName: Jordan.
* [[spoiler: TortureCellar]]
* TrailersAlwaysSpoil: The trailer basically gave the entire plot of the movie: Jordan messes up and so a girl dies because of her actions, another girl is kidnapped, they figure out it's the same kidnapper, a dude gets set on fire trying to help the victim, and then Jordan gets involved besides running the phone.
