* HarsherInHindsight: Robert Blake, as a creepy criminal, [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_Blake_(actor)#Arrest_and_trial_for_murder in a movie about someone murdering his wife]]. Put two and two together. It also came out around the same time as the O.J. trial (which Lynch speculates to have been an unconscious influence on the film), making for a DOUBLE FunnyAneurysmMoment.
* NightmareFuel: [[NightmareFuel/LostHighway See the page. There's a lot.]]
* NeedsMoreLove: Some would consider this one of Lynch's quintessential works.
* TrueArtIsIncomprehensible: Come on... it's a DavidLynch film. What did you expect? A little old man on a lawnmower? [[TheStraightStory Oh... wait...]]
