YMMV: Session 9
  • Alternate Character Interpretation: Some are left with the impression that Gordon was not really Axe Crazy, but instead suffering from a case of Demonic Possession.
    • This theory is supported by some deleted scenes, which show that the Simon "personality" is actually a murderous demonic entity which hops from victim to victim, preying upon their weakness as a way in ("I live in the weak and the wounded"), and then using their bodies to commit murders.
      • However, it works just as well as a metaphor as it does literally. The movie leaves it ambiguous.
  • Hell Is That Noise: Simon's voice.
  • Nightmare Fuel:
    • What Are You Doing Here? and Simon take the cake.
    • Hank walking through the Abandoned Hospital at night, happily stealing stuff. Then he starts hearing strange noises behind him, and something steps into the corridor...
    • 'DO IT, GORDON."
    • The movie's final lines.
      Doctor: (on tape) And where do you live, Simon?
      Mary Hobbes: I live in the weak and the wounded...Doc.
  • Narm: Hey... *points* Fuck youuu!
    • Which has led to that being quite popular as a gif on Image Boards.
  • Tear Jerker: Gordon's final phone call to his wife.
  • The Woobie: Jeff.
