* NightmareRetardant: The vine is scary when it is more mobile and tricky than vines should be. It is imitative, learning from its victims. And then it gets silly when it demonstrates its ability to speak multiple languages and somehow know (and generate) the smell of apple pie ''a la mode''.
** This is if you see it as a simple plant, instead of an EldritchAbomination (Or perhaps an EldritchLocation). See WildMassGuessing page. Besides, the scariest part isn't the bloodthirsty plant...it's what the plant gets the protagonists to [[{{Gorn}} do]] [[{{Squick}} to]] [[BodyHorror themselves.]]
* WhatDoYouMeanItsNotSymbolic - [[spoiler: [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything A plant that takes people over, causing them to behave in bizarre ways and to hurt their friends. Once it's got its hooks in you, you'll never be the same. And, it has a distinctive five-pointed leaf.]]Growing on ''a Mayan ruin'', for bonus points.]]
* WTHCastingAgency: A gritty, bleak, blood filled PsychologicalHorror film...produced by ''Creator/BenStiller''.
