* NotWhatItLooksLike: During ''Hillbilly''. Charles escapes the Hillbillies and makes his way to a road trying to find help, but he's shirtless and charging at the road with a ''shotgun''. Understandably the driver of the car he finds isn't too keen to let him in, especially since in his panic he keeps shouting at him to open the door, making it seem like he's trying to steal the car.
** As detailed in the [[Trivia/{{SummerSchool2006}} Trivia page]], this happened in RealLife between the filming crew and the police during the filming of ''Hillbilly''.

Added DiffLines:

* CharacterTics: Charles pops a mint into his mouth every time his crush Lindsay approaches him or he approaches her.


Added DiffLines:

* LargeHam: Steve, Dennis and Lindsay in ''Vampire''. Steve is more of the ColdHam variety, Lindsay is over the top in acting the seductress and Dennis?
--->'''Dennis:''' (raising his arms into the air) I AM NOSFERATU!

Added DiffLines:

* CerebusRollercoaster: The movie switches tones ''wildly'' from short to short. ''Cult'' is a creepy slow build followed immediately by ''Monsters'', which has the air of a B-Movie complete with the "Monsters" being Bigfoot costumes modified with spider-like heads. This in turn is followed by ''Nazi'', ''the darkest segment of the movie'' which also has a number of disturbing similarities to a school shooting, followed by the supremely goofy ''Vampire'' and the back-to-back {{Narm}} of ''Hillbilly'' and ''Slasher''. [[spoiler: Then the movie ends with Charles dying in a car accident.]]

Added DiffLines:

* FlatCharacter: Everyone but Charles, and even then just barely for him. [[spoiler: [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] in that Charles is dreaming the whole time.]]


Added DiffLines:

* {{Foreshadowing}}: A surprisingly competent case for the movie's very indie B-Movie pedigree. It's established that every time he dies, Charles wakes up in another dream. [[spoiler: ''Cult'' starts immediately after he's "woken up" for the first time, hinting at the fact that the whole movie is AllJustADream.]]


Added DiffLines:

* NWordPrivileges: One of the more derided aspects of the movie are the Hillbillies repeatedly violating theirs for no real reason as there's not a single black person in the whole film.


Added DiffLines:

* WalkingShirtlessScene: PlayedForHorror, Charles is only shirtless in ''Hillbilly'' because one of the Hillbillies made him strip it off at gunpoint before [[AttemptedRape trying to molest him.]]

Added DiffLines:

* SurpriseCreepy: Just about all the sequences start like this, but ''Cult'' has a slow build and actually seems like a, admittedly well shot, slow paced student film until [[spoiler: Charles hangs a corner, gets hit with a pan and wakes up to Lindsay and Dennis ritualistically bleeding his wrists before Mrs. Wickham arrives to sacrifice him.]]

Understandably the driver of the car he finds isn't too keen to let him in, especially since in his panic he keeps shouting at him to open the door, making it seem like he's trying to steal the car.

Not to be mistaken for the [[Film/{{SummerSchool}} 80s comedy film of the same name.]]


* EyeScream: [[spoiler: Charles' eye gets gouged out with a knife in ''Nazi'' before his killer shoves his pistol into the hole to deliver the finishing blow.]]

* PoorCommunicationKills: Charles' panic during ''Hillbilly'' causes him to look like a carjacker or a mugger to the man driving the car he's trying to get into to escape. [[spoiler: This argument leads to the man being shot in the head when one of the Hillbillies catches up to Charles.]]

* {{Jerkass}}: Charles proves multiple times that he's a rather rude and unpleasant person, being dismissive of his classmates, rude to his teacher and the officer stationed at the school and antisocial in general.
