* CompleteMonster: Griffin, the protagonist of the film as played by Creator/ColemanFrancis, is an escaped convict who only shows himself to be a sociopathic {{Jerkass}} and hypocrite throughout the movie. A greedy FatBastard whose only stated desire is to become rich, he casually abuses everyone around him, [[ChronicVillainy never passing up an opportunity to do bad]]. He claims that he wants to go legit, then five seconds later he whips his friend with a belt and steals said friend's most valued possession. He regularly beats up (and occasionally strangles) his friends, murders strangers, and [[MoralEventHorizon rapes a blind woman after throwing her father down a well]].
* DesignatedHero: Griffin was probably supposed to be an UnscrupulousHero but, possibly due to bad writing, he comes off as just a straight up villain.
* EarWorm: As cheesy and terrible as it is, "Night train to Mundo Fiiiine..." The fact that it's sung by Creator/JohnCarradine probably does nothing to hurt its catchiness.
* EnsembleDarkhorse: "He's Cherokee Jack!"
* FanNickname: Justine
* MoralEventHorizon: Griffin crosses this when he rapes a blind girl and murders her father.
* UnintentionallyUnsympathetic: As has been mentioned, Griffin was supposedly meant to be seen as a mostly decent person who was down on his luck and held back by a HairTriggerTemper, and what happens to him at the end of the movie was supposed to be [[TragicHero tragic and thought-provoking]]. Unfortunately, all sympathy for him is lost by the time he rapes a blind girl and murders her father, making the ending seem more like justice being done than anything else.
* WhatDoYouMeanItsNotSymbolic: At one point, the camera zooms in on a Advertising/BurmaShave -esque sign that asks "How will you spend eternity?". Judging by the pacing of the movie, [[TakeThat probably watching]] [[DeadpanSnarker this scene]].
