* UncertainDoom: [[spoiler: With the reveal that Eric is still alive in the closing moments of the film, it's unclear if Katey survives after all since she's both exhausted and incapacitated (having been drugged with a sedative before her confrontation with Eric).]]

Added DiffLines:

** There's also a scene early in the film where Mrs. Slater smashes [[spoiler: Vicki's]] face in a framed photo of the sorority girls with the sharp end of her cane. [[spoiler: Guess how Vicki dies in the film?]]

Added DiffLines:

** Though to be fair, getting attacked and chased by someone trying to kill you doesn't always leave you in the right headspace.

Added DiffLines:

* RoaringRampageOfRevenge: [[spoiler: Seemingly Eric's entire motivation.]]

Added DiffLines:

* UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom: [[spoiler: A simple prank leads to the death of Mrs. Slater and the psychological break of her son Eric, making him kill most of the sorority girls.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ItsAllAboutMe: Much of Vicki's motivations for hiding Slater's body are self-motivated and she seems to not understand why anyone else - namely Katey - would object or be reluctant to going along with her plans. Additionally, Dr. Beck seems more concerned with his reputation than capturing a mass murderer who has already killed seven people when he attempts to use Katey to capture Eric; he straight up says that if the news of his involvement in Eric's disability and subsequent escape got out, ''his'' business would be ruined.

Added DiffLines:

* HiddenDepths: An early scene has the girls thank people over beer. During this confessional, it's revealed that Diane is going to law school, Stevie is going to become a flight attendant for Pan Am, and Liz is from a wealthy family.

Added DiffLines:

* CreepyBasement: [[spoiler: Where Stevie is killed.]]
* CreepyDoll: There are several shown in the attic. Additionally, there's a creepy jack-in-the box.


Added DiffLines:

* {{Foreshadowing}}: [[spoiler: Katherine finds a clown costume during her first trip to the attic. Guess what Eric dresses in when he attacks her in the finale?]]

Added DiffLines:

* PsychopathicManchild: [[spoiler: While the exact specifics of his mental disabilities are unclear (aside from the fact that were spurred from both a traumatic childbirth and Dr. Beck's fertility treatments), Eric appears to be quite childlike if the attic is an indicator of anything. Also, he's the killer.]]
