* NotTheFirstVictim: While being stalked by Greta, Frances learns from Greta's daughter's girlfriend that Greta seemed to have been extremely abusive to her daughter. It's never explicitly confirmed because she's a Posthumous Character, having committed suicide prior to the events of the film. It's also heavily implied that Greta had multiple victims because Frances hears the same banging through the wall at the beginning of the film that she later makes while bound to the bed in Greta's house.

* FriendsRentControl: Frances and Erica live in Manhattan in a spacious apartment (big enough for Frances to ride a bicycle around in it in one scene) despite Frances being a waitress.
** Frances says early on that Erica's father bought the apartment for her as a graduation present.


Added DiffLines:

* SerialKiller: It's strongly implied that Greta has previously lured in, imprisoned and eventually killed many other young woman, since the first time she meets Francis there is the same bumping noise that Francis later made trying to signal others to escape. What she did with the bodies is anyone's guess though.
