* CompleteMonster: The sinister [[FauxAffablyEvil John Gray]], "evil himself," is a man of depraved obsessions centered around his associate Dr. "Toddy" [=MacFarlane=]. A cabman by day and [[GraveRobbing grave robber]] by night, Gray establishes his cruelty by [[BadPeopleAbuseAnimals killing a dog]] who announces his presence in the grave, thieving from the graveyard to supply [=MacFarlane=] with specimens for his research. Gray eventually turns to the murder of a blind street singer to sate [=MacFarlane=], and strangles his assistant Joseph to death, presenting his body to [=MacFarlane=] as a twisted gift and gradually driving [=MacFarlane=] deeper and deeper into the threshold of insanity until Gray finally admits he torments [=MacFarlane=] solely [[ForTheEvulz for the pleasure of having a rich man bent to his whims]]. Gray vows he will never stop tormenting [=MacFarlane=], and his words ring true as [=MacFarlane=]'s insanity claims him soon after he's driven to kill Gray. Hauntingly mad in his crusade to torment [=MacFarlane=], Gray still remains among the most chilling performances of horror legend Creator/BorisKarloff.

* FoeYay: [=MacFarlane=] and Gray. Notably the only people to call [=MacFarlane=] "Toddy" are his wife Meg and Gray himself, and they spend much of the film completely fixated on each other.
