* CringeComedy: Carl, [[spoiler: while in a crumpled heap on the floor]], says to Sissy, [[ThisIsForEmphasisBitch "This shit ain't over, bitch!"]]
* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: Christopher Young's score beautifully accents the movie, especially the music that accompanies the TwistEnding, "[[http://youtu.be/OE0CflR2s4g Chorale Postlude]]"
* {{Narm}}: '''WELCOME TO [[spoiler: HELL, ''motherfuckerssss!'']] AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!'''
** The appearance of Carl in that CringeComedy moment above. Might've been genuinely disturbing if we [[NothingIsScarier never saw it.]]
* NightmareFuel: The dolls. Jesus H. Tapdancing Christ, ''[[CreepyDoll the dolls]].'' The mural featuring said dolls does ''not'' help matters,
** The ending of the wraparound tale "Welcome to My Mortuary," full stop.
** [[spoiler: Newton melting into and becoming the mural. However, it is [[VisualEffectsOfAwesome a rather nice effect]].]]
** The entirety of [[DomesticAbuser "Boys Do Get Bruised"]], a RealLife example [[spoiler: (minus the voodoo drawings, of course)]]. [[HeReallyCanAct Helped immensely by David Alan Grier's performance as the loathsome and evil Carl.]]
** The [[NotableOriginalMusic "Born II Die"]] sequence in "Hard Core Convert," with its mixture of actual photos and video of KKK handiwork and stylized footage of gangbangers blowing each other away.
* SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped: Martin Moorehouse asks the rather poignant question: "Where were you when I needed you, brother?"
** When Crazy K tries to justify some of his murders as killing people who had wronged him, a little girl (Tasha Johnson) with a hole in her chest points out "I didn't do anything."
* UnfortunateImplications: The slave puppets kill by cannibalism...
* TheWoobie: The dead little girl. She politely points out that she was only playing in her room when the stray bullets got her. To a lesser extent Walter, [[spoiler:but he commits patricide]].
** [[spoiler:Well, technically he wasn't the one who did it in the end...]]
** [[spoiler:And besides, he wasn't intending to kill Carl. He was trying to stop him from brutalizing his mother and teacher.]]
