* CompleteMonster: [[BitchInSheepsClothing Lilith "Lily" Sullivan]] is a [[OurDemonsAreDifferent demon]] in the form of a [[CreepyChild little girl]]. With the ability to force people to hallucinate their worst fear, Lily sadistically murders those around her [[ForTheEvulz for her own amusement]]. Tricking social worker Emily Jenkins into taking her under her custody, ostensibly to escape her AbusiveParents, Lily takes the opportunity to continue her reign of terror. She manipulates a boy named Diego into killing his parents, and murders her psychiatrist, Douglas. She then targets her incarcerated parents, making [[ManOnFire her mother hallucinate that she is being burned alive]] and causing her father to get [[EyeScream stabbed in the eye]]. When a detective catches on to Lily's involvement in the deaths, she tricks him into shooting himself. After Emily makes a failed attempt to kill her, Lily forces her to hallucinate a childhood memory of her mother driving fast in a rainstorm. Upon her defeat, Lily attempts to [[TakingYouWithMe drag Emily with her to her death]].

--> '''Emily:''' Open the door.
--> '''Driver:''' ''[points to "Bus not in service" sign]''
--> '''Emily:''' Oh PLEASE open the door! OPEN THE DOOR SHE'S COOOOMMMMINGG!!!
--> '''Driver:''' There's NOBODY out there!
* NightmareFuel: The scene where Lily's parents attempt to burn her to death in the oven. [[spoiler: That is, before we know her true nature.]] Even worse when it's later thrown back on it's head when [[spoiler: Lillith's mother is forced to imagine herself burning in that same oven all day, every single day.]]
* NightmareRetardant: [[spoiler:It's hard to take Lilith seriously when her demands are so childish (ice-cream everyday, amongst other things).]]
* {{Squick}}: The hornet [[spoiler:crawling out from under Doug's eye.]]
* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: [[spoiler: The way [[NeverTrustATrailer the trailer put forward the movie (that a demon was after Lilith, and her parents planned to sacrifice her in order to save themselves)]] would have actually been a welcome change from the cookie-cutter "evil child" horror film.]]
* TheWoobie: Lilith, [[spoiler: at least until we learn what really went on in her home.]]
