- Fridge Horror: Watching the film knowing that Terry is the Serial Killer is especially disconcerting. He reacts to the murders with mild concern and feigns disappointment when none of the prints match. He even baptizes Edward Gray like his murdering addiction is no big deal.
- Harsher in Hindsight: At one point, Terry asks Wes if he thinks it's possible for the Serial Killer to repent. It's later revealed Terry is the murderer, and he says, "I don't want to go to hell."
- Nightmare Fuel:
- Stu is walking through the convenience store and hears somebody screaming in the back. In the first room he checks, although the room is dark the silhouette of the murder can be seen in front of the window.
- Wes figures out that the serial killer is targeting readheads. When he questions the killer about a victim who didn't have red hair, the killer responds, "It was red...when I finished with it."
- Tear Jerker: The final sacrament scene is very powerful. For those unfamiliar with LDS practices, those who turn down the sacrament often do so because they feel unworthy. It's very unusual for the bishopric do this, so when Wes and his counselors turn down the sacrament, the whole congregation does the same thing. When he finally partakes of the sacrament, it shows that he's forgiven himself for killing Terry and his mistakes.
