The film:

  • Narm The stock sound effects (including screams) in the opening credits.
  • Nausea Fuel: Having graphic sex with a mangled and mutilated corpse, which has been cut open, leaving the insides completely exposed.
  • Paranoia Fuel: What could happen to your remains behind closed doors?
  • Squick
  • Visual Effects of Awesome

The novel:

  • Inferred Holocaust: The EMP would have knocked almost all planes out of the sky, killing thousands. Subverted as the prologue follows the flight path of the Vice President on one of the crashing planes.

The series:

  • Nightmare Fuel: "Population Zero" initially covers the first hours, days, weeks, and months following humanity's disappearance, leading to many interesting yet still horrifying sights that the dueling show Life After People lacks (such as empty cars crashing into each other worldwide, airplanes falling down on earth and power going out in the span of hours if not minutes and so on), but the episode gets really eerie after the next Ice Age hits, turning into a Cosmic Horror Story where the narrator impresses us of mankind's insignificance on the cosmic timescale.
