- Jerkass Woobie: There's really no excuse for Belial raping and killing Sharon, but it's difficult not to feel sorry for him after he was forcefully separated from Duane without either wanting to be separated.
- Memetic Mutation: The choking scene from the third film, especially the line dropped by the cop.
- Narm: The aforementioned scene has a very infamous line dropped by a cop: OH JESUS GOOOOooooood!!!
- Sequelitis: A good percentage of the fanbase ignores that there is a 2nd and 3rd movie.
- So Bad, It's Good
- Special Effect Failure:
- Especially obvious in the infamous scene where Belial goes on a rampage inside Duane's rented room.
- The sequels introduce new "freaks", who are mostly played by people wearing masks.
- Ugly Cute: Belial.
YMMV / Basket Case
