- Cult Classic
- Knight Templar Parent: Adult Anthony's Establishing Character Moment in the sequel is to punish a boy for accidentally pushing his daughter off of a tree, not by hurting him directly ,but by burning his father then sending him to the cornfield. Unsurprisingly, the boy stopped playing with Audrey after that.
- Morality Pet: Audrey seems to be the only thing to keep from sending people the cornfield.
- Nightmare Fuel: A telepathic boy with omnipotent powers of changing people who he doesn't like into grotesque parodies of themselves .The Movie takes it Up to Eleven and makes him into a Reality Warper.
- Psychopathic Manchild: While Anthony did somewhat matured a bit, he kept his spoiled attitude and overly simplistic worldview.
YMMV / It's a Good Life
Your Mileage May Vary? No, these are good tropes. Very good tropes!
