* HilariousInHindsight: Stella questions how Thorwald, would've killed his wife. "Of course, the bathtub! It's the only place he could've washed the blood!" What other Hitchcock film was released six years after ''Rear Window''? ''Film/{{Psycho}}''.
* JustHereForGodzilla:
** To see Ross Bagdasarian, Sr., aka [[Franchise/AlvinAndTheChipmunks David 'Dave' Seville]].
** Leaving aside the plot, the viewer can enjoy the film just for the dialogue and chemistry between Creator/JamesStewart and Creator/GraceKelly.
* NightmareFuel: [[spoiler:Thorwald's off-screen murdering of his wife and how he apparently chopped her body parts into individual pieces. There's a brief implication that the item he had stored in his hatbox was her head.]]
** The bit where Thorwald attacks Lisa. Just how close was she to his wife's fate before the cops interrupted them?
** That moment where Thorwald looks through the window and locks eyes with Jeff is ''bone chilling''.
* ParanoiaFuel: Are your neighbors who you think they are? Could they be watching your every move through your window?
* SpecialEffectFailure: [[spoiler: Jeff falling out of the window looks unmistakably like a chroma key effect.]] Plus, when everyone runs out into the courtyard to see this, it seems pretty obvious that they filmed the scene at normal speed and sped it up in post.
* ValuesResonance: The owner of the murdered dog has a rant about hardly anyone in the neighborhood really communicates with one another or seem to care about each other and how her dog was "the only thing that ever liked anybody!" Fast forward about 60 years and people have more distractions from genuine human communication (especially neighbors).
