The My Little Pony Fanfic:
- Tear Jerker: Twilight Sparkles death.
- Adaptation Displacement: The movie is actually based on a book of the same name.
- It goes even further because many people only know of the Billy Idol song and have no idea it's based on this movie.
- Awesome Music: The hauntingly beautiful main theme by Maurice Jarre.
- Retroactive Recognition: The film's score is an early effort by renowned composer Maurice Jarre, who would later go on to score such films as Lawrence of Arabia, Doctor Zhivago, and Jacob's Ladder.
- Vindicated by History: Initial critical reception of the film was very negative; one film critic nearly got fired for writing a positive review! Nowadays it is placed along the best that horror genre can offer.
- Visual Effects of Awesome: The make-up effects still hold up wonderfully half a century later. Special mention to Christiane's face.
- The Woobie: Christiane.
