* CosmicHorrorReveal: It becomes clear that Sam is in a cosmic horror story when [[spoiler:he looks down the deep hole in the station floor at the giant eye that stares back at him]].



* MadOracle: Jonah Henry is a variation on this trope, having become unstable due to his imprisonment in the radio station. He's the one that tells Sam that he is doomed.
* PlotDrivenBreakdown: Invoked. [[spoiler:It is implied that the cosmic force in the radio station breaks Sam's car intentionally.]]
* PreInsanityReveal: Sam sees Jonah's smiling employee photo on the wall, implying that he {{Used To Be A Sweet Kid}} before [[spoiler:servitude to the {{Eldritch Abomination}} caused him to lose his mind]].
* StealthPun: Type 5. Ray Wise's character Harry suggests that they "adjust" the preferred holdings accounts, which he says are used for "false profits." Harry then quotes Matthew 7:15: "Beware of false prophets" as a joke. The pun is type 5 because [[spoiler:Harry himself is a false prophet, decrying their current state as down-trodden employees, thus instigating Sam's decent into crime and the resulting horrors]].
* UnexpectedlyAbandoned: The radio station is completely abandoned, except for Jonah Henry and [[spoiler: the {{Eldritch Abomination}}]]. The employee photos on the wall indicate that the station was once had a normal workforce.
