* HarsherInHindsight: This movie features a wall being built on the Mexican-American border six years before US president Donald Trump's attempt to get a wall built on the Southern Border led to lots of controversy.

* VisualEffectsOfAwesome: Considering the tiny budget, anything resembling special effects would have been commendable but its visuals would ''actually shame'' some movies 100 times its cost. And Creator/GarethEdwards did it all himself. Special mention goes to the [[spoiler: ending, when two of the creatures meet whilst Samantha and Andrew look on in awe]].

** [[spoiler:Andrew's]] admittedly drunken decision to sleep with a random woman simply because [[spoiler:Samantha shot him down]] isn't so bad considering he's single. [[spoiler:She probably only rejected him]] due to fact he was so drunk or maybe conflicted over being [[spoiler:still technically engaged]]. But the true error of judgement comes the morning after when [[spoiler:his fling ends up stealing Samantha's passport and Andrews cash. Leaving your valuables unattended with your room door wide open is a bad idea in general. ''Moreso'' with a stranger still in your bed]].

* CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming: Andrew and Samantha spend a single night with a hospitable family after leaving the train at the start, where Andrew was so good with the children that the mother wondered if the pair were married. When they leave, she offers them food and water and gives Samantha a goodbye hug.
* FridgeHorror: Pretty much anything that showcases the daily life for those living near (or ''in'') the Infected Zone, particularly the [[WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids cartoon instructing children how to equip their gasmaks]].

** A bit onto Sam, too, for leaving her passport with Andrew who she technically didn't have to see again before getting on the ferry, alongside the fact that she stormed off in a huff while leaving said passport behind.
* WhatDoYouMeanItsNotPolitical: The director has denied parallels with Mexican immigration to the United States, but a lot of people have still drawn the comparison. The fact that Mexican immigrants making the border crossing are characters within the story and there really is a wall being built on the Mexican-American border does not help.

These aliens are stereotyped as villains in propaganda. These aliens are apparently not metaphors for Mexican immigration to the United States, U.S according to director Creator/GarethEdwards, but a lot of that hasn't stopped people have still drawn from drawing the comparison.
