YMMV: The Fisher King
  • Moral Event Horizon: The two teen thugs that try to light Jack on fire just for being in the wrong place at the wrong time. They later beat the hell out of Parry for the same reason and put him in the hospital.
  • Nightmare Fuel: The Red Knight. The fact its a hallucination does nothing to take away from how terrifying it is. The film does a good job of showing just how terrifying the thing is through Parry's eyes. Especially at the end when it chases Parry through the city overlapped with Parry's memories of his wife being murdered right in front of him.
    • His flashbacks to his wife's murder are also horrifying. Particularly the fact that when she was shot her blood and brains splattered in his face. Is it any wonder the poor guy went insane after that?
  • Retroactive Recognition: David Hyde Pierce has a minor role as Jack's assistant.
  • The Woobie: Parry.
