YMMV / Sanitarium

  • Crowning Music of Awesome - The comedic dance remix song that plays over the end credits (the credits for when you beat the game, not the credits that you can access from the main menu).
  • Fridge Logic - The glass eye puzzle in chapter 7. Glass eyes don't function as actual eyes, but this is conveniently explained away by the All Just a Dream twist at the end
  • "Holy Shit!" Quotient
    • Putting the artifact in the statue's pillar in the first level. The statue then comes to life and starts bleeding (from the EYES!) and transports you to another world...yeah, bet you weren't quite expecting that, now were you.
    • The reveal of Mother and what exactly is happening to the kids in Chapter 2
    • Max transforming into Sarah at the end of chapter 3.
  • Squick:
    • "Mother", both when you meet her and her corpse once you kill her
    • The mangled, bloated corpses floating just offshore in Chapter 4.
    • The puzzle where you have to cremate a dead body is probably the most extreme example.
  • Uncanny Valley - The cutscenes. This was more likely due to budget and technical limitations, but since it's a horror game...
  • The Woobie - Arthur Patrick, Maria Santiago, and Lenny.
