Added DiffLines:

* ReluctantPsycho: [[spoiler: After Russell realises hes infected and slowly going mad from the disease, hes visibly distraught, and [[HeroicSacrifice ultimately chooses to end his own life helping David and Judy escape before he loses what little sanity he had left.]]]]

Added DiffLines:

* StayWithMeUntilIDie: [[spoiler: Russell, once he finally realizes he's infected, asks to walk with David and Judy for a little while longer. He rewards their kindness by pulling a HeroicSacrifice to let them evade the barricade]].


* OurZombiesAreDifferent: See NotUsingTheZWord. While the insanity virus sounds similar to that of ''Film/TwentyEightDaysLater'''s rage-filled zombies, the victims of this virus retain both their intelligence and their personality - usually.

* OurZombiesAreDifferent: See NotUsingTheZWord. While TheVirus (which is waterborne instead of being spread via {{Plague Zombie}}s) turns the insanity virus sounds similar infected into {{Technically Living Zombie}}s, and is technically a HatePlague. The infected remember how to walk, talk, drive, use tools and do ''all'' that of ''Film/TwentyEightDaysLater'''s rage-filled zombies, the victims of this virus retain both stuff that'd usually be used by aliens or fairies as evidence that HumansAreTheRealMonsters, but they're ''off'' enough in their intelligence heads that they become AxCrazy machines who use human ingenuity to gruesomely torture and their personality - usually.kill indiscriminately. As the infection worsens, the infected look more zombie-like. It's demonstrated in the film that the infected only have a lifespan of a matter of days once they're infected.


Added DiffLines:

* TaintedVeins: A late symptom of infection with the Trixie virus.


Added DiffLines:

* TheVirus: A bio-weapon derived from the same family of viruses as [[TheDreaded rabies]], which over the course of several days makes its infected hosts descend into homicidal mania and then makes them go from looking normal to gaining freaky eyes and wormy grey skin. The Trixie virus' infected victims can ''crudely'' mimc human behavior but it should become clear to any common-sensed person within 30 seconds that they're behaving off.


* PunchClockVillain: Billy Babcock, one of the soldiers who was briefly held hostage by David, Russell, Judy and Becca before he is released by them, is one due to admitting that he [[NotWhatISignedOnFor did not signed up to take innocent unarmed lives]], realizing they were lied to about wearing a gas mask to avoid death, which apparently does not happen to Babcock and apologizing for what happened to their town. In return for being shown mercy, Babcock doesn't rat out on them to his platoon as they moved out.

* MythologyGag:
** While other characters and the ending credits only refer to him by his first name, Russell at one point mentions his surname is Clank, a reference to the character from the original he's based on.
** When Russell stops the government SUV, he says to the driver, "Welcome to Pierce County, the friendliest place on Earth, asshole." This is a reference to a sign which appears in one of the posters (or vice-versa).

Added DiffLines:

* DeathByCameo: Creator/GlennMorshower shows up as a government agent who gets his brains blown out by an infected Russell.


* AndThenJohnWasAZombie: Done for pretty much the entire town, but this trope can be mainly attributed with Deputy Russell. He starts out as the one that helps David the most and even saves his life on several occasions. However as the film progresses, it becomes pretty obvious that Russell is losing his mind, becoming increasingly unstable to the point where he murders someone in an instant MoodWhiplash. Fortunately, he's able to hold it together long enough to help our main characters escape, sacrificing himself so that they can live.
