Angst? What Angst?: Lilli seems a little too calm for someone who was nearly murdered and has to live out in the forest.
Designated Hero: Lilli for some. Then it's subverted when Claudia keeps trying to kill her.
Designated Villain: Claudia has tried hard to build a loving relationship with her stepdaughter, only to be rebuffed, and it's clear that she's been corrupted by the mirror...but like Lilli, this is subverted as she keeps trying to kill her stepdaughter.
Nightmare Fuel: The first two attempts to kill Lilli that Claudia tries. The poisoned apple almost seems tame in comparison.
The sight of the hand of Claudia's zombified baby reaching out from his blanket. That ENTIRE SCENE is frightening.
Tear Jerker: It's really hard to not feel sorry for Claudia after she loses her baby.
What Do You Mean, It's Not for Kids?: Naturally, being an adaptation of Snow White, many parents would assume this is alright to show to children. They ignore the R rating and the fact that it's got "A Tale of Terror" as it's subtitle.
