YMMV: Ravenous
  • Critical Dissonance - Audiences (the few who actually saw it when it came out) generally rated the film higher than critics did.
  • Crosses the Line Twice - Blood pours down the screen, people do despicable things, yet one can't help but think, "why is this so damn funny?" The secret's in the score.
    • "White man eats the body of Jesus Christ every Sunday."
  • Faux Symbolism: Theres a lot of Christ references surrounding Ives which don't make a lot of sense and not even the director or the actor can satisfactorily explain.
  • Ho Yay - Boyd and Ives got a lot of it, especially since there's no other love interest in sight. And they end up dying lying on top of each other in a forced embrace...yowza.
    • Doubles as Foe Yay
    • To a lesser extent, Reich towards Toffler
  • Magnificent Bastard - Ives, again. It's hard not to love the guy.
