* SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic: "Happy Today" by The Kevin Danzig Band is actually pretty good.
* CanonSue: So, three men (counting the nerdy guy at the dance) essentially vie for the affections of writer/actress Schilling's character, Natalie, who gets lots of nice close-ups, and is the central character upon whom the whole movie hinges, in spite of not being particularly interesting.
** She's also the rich daughter of the town's mayor, complete with a mansion and butler. So her accident and the subsequent drama about whether or not she should stay on life support make the evening news. How convenient.
*** Amazingly, she ''doesn't'' save the day. Her Hot Poor Boyfriend does.
** Some of the riffing picks up on this, narrating supposed pages from the script of Schilling describing how beautiful her character is for no reason.
* EndingFatigue: Damn, that hospital climax just does not want to end. It even keeps cutting to a clock after the {{Celestial Deadline}} passes. "The clock doesn't figure at all, stop showing the clock! You spent that nickel already!"
* EnsembleDarkhorse: The riffers sure wanted to know more about the bus than the characters.
** Brad, at least after he becomes a soultaker, becomes more competent, witty and likeable than he was when he was alive. He does more useful things for the protagonists that they do.
* FridgeLogic: The Soultaker is ImmuneToBullets... even though he can ''be visibly injured.''
** Maybe he can only cause the bullets to go through him when he can see it coming?
*** They said you can't ''kill'' a Soultaker. They said nothing about knocking them out.
** The bigger one is how Zach ends up with Natalie's soul ring in his (living) hand after reviving himself. I believe the [[Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000 MST3K]] crew said: "whoa movie, huddle-up in the middle here, let's work this out..."
* LesYay: "Is there a name for Mom's little sickness?" "Yeah, Lilith Fair-ism."
* {{Narm}}: Done by a camera shot, interestingly. In the scene where Natalie is trapped in the elevator with the Estevez soultaker, the camera slowly rotates whenever she is on-screen. At first the viewer might think they're trying for a DutchAngle effect, but it keeps turning and turning until eventually she's completely upside-down. It just ends up looking silly.
* {{Squick}}: The Estevez reaper oogles at the undressed heroine while he's disguised as her mother.
* TheUntwist: Natalie's mom is [[spoiler:the Estevez reaper in disguise]]; the first hint of this is when she can [[spoiler:see the characters' 'souls']] when no one else can. This trope is largely dependent upon the [[Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000 MST3K]] treatment because, due to the usual level of quality featured on the show, viewers might have assumed it was just an oversight in the script.
