- Angst? What Angst?: Anton isn't upset by his parents getting murdered by his own hand at all.
- Anticlimax Boss: Lampshaded. The hand is skewered with an enchanted knife, and just goes -poof-.Mick: That's it? That's it? No explosions, no hellfire, no- (screeches demonically) I mean, no, I'm glad everybody's all right, but... that was weak.
- Nightmare Fuel: The opening credits, which run over a series of nightmarish images accompanied by Graeme Revell's creepy theme.
- The entire premise of the film, when you think about it. You don't want to hurt anybody, but you're (partially) possessed by a demonic entity that will kill and kill whether you want it to or not.
- Squick: Zombie!Pnub making out with a girl at the dance. Even Zombie!Mitch thinks it's gross.
YMMV / Idle Hands
