YMMV: The Good Earth
  • Complete Monster: Wang Lung's uncle, who repeatedly mooches off of his nephew, treats his niece in law cruelly, is suspected of eating some of his children during a famine, joins/becomes the leader of a gang that kills people, burns down houses and rapes women for laughs, and attempts to blackmail Wang Lung with this fact. Fortunately, he ends up dying from his opium addiction...and then his equally vile son takes over.
  • Fridge Horror: Wang Lung's uncle is healthy and active long after Wang Lung's father is sick enough to be confined to bed and even dies. That means he's probably related to Wang Lung's mother, not his father. Say... how big of an age difference would that imply between Wang Lung's father and his mother?
  • Tear Jerker: The death of O-Lan
