- Darkness-Induced Audience Apathy: One of the problems of the film.
- Like You Would Really Do It: As if they'd let Tom murder a little girl.
- Moral Event Horizon: Any remaining sympathy for Tom vanishes when he tries to kill Sandy.
- Vi herself loses any sympathy when she tries to sadistically kill a blind seer.
- Special Effects Failure: Joel and the 'Bots have a field day with Vi's head sitting calmly on Tom's end table talking to him.
