- Fridge Horror: The endorphins being harvested are produced in order to dull extreme pain. However, since they’re being siphoned off, the characters are in even more pain than they normally would be.
- Squick: Too many times to count, but the repeated act of ripping off fingernails gets an honorable mention. The sound effects alone are horrifying enough, but combine them with the visuals…
- Tara’s torture is particularly squicky: after the physical beating they’ve all given her, Tony takes a cheese grater to her shoulder.
- Uncanny Valley: The woman on the video who informs the hostages of their situation has face that’s just a little too long, and a mouth that shows just a little too much gum when smiling. The effect is chilling.
