- Implacable Man: The Killer.
- Except for a second or two when he first JumpScares you.
- Jump Scare: Good God.
- Leaning on the Fourth Wall: "A medicine cabinet in the bathroom. Interesting. Why is that interesting? Why am I talking to myself?"
- Nameless Narrative: The only characters named are two bodies in the basement, Stephanie and Ted.
- Random Event: Everything from the killer to where the items/safes are located.
- Retraux: Of old-style point and click horror games, ala Clock Tower.
- "A wooden box. At least it's not a barrel. Fucking barrels."
