- Nightmare Fuel: Keeping in mind the intended audience for Break of Dark is between 13 and 21 years old, Sergeant Nice's short scene where the eponymous police officer has nightmares about the contents of the alien spaceship and the fates of the animals and the one missing human (see the People Jars entry on the main page) definitely invokes this.
- Hitchhiker's tale of a young man being used for Bizarre Alien Reproduction probably does, too.
- The Luftwaffe pilot in Blackham's Wimpy who burns alive while while people point and laugh instead of trying to help him. Never mind that he's a nazi, that's a horrific way to go.
YMMV / Break of Dark
