Vampires are self-serious and dedicated killers, humans argue among themselves, survivors depend on courageous martyrs.
Positive Role Models & Representations
Gory displays of vampirism throughout: They chomp on their victims, chew their necks, and suck their blood. They also beat, kick, and throw themselves on prey and vehicles. Humans use multiple weapons, including a sunlamp, fires, guns, axes, and vehicles. An early car crash is abrupt and loud. Dead dogs are ravaged and bloody -- a precursor to the discovery of human bodies that are mauled, gnawed, and very bloody. Attacks are chaotic (fast cuts and close-ups), with groaning and growling sounds. Shooting leaves vampires with limbs and heads blown away.
Gruesome "sexual" play between male and female vampire (they hiss at each other and bare their teeth, the woman pawing at her torso in a demonstration of passion). Earnest declarations of love between protagonists.
Profanity includes several uses of "f--k" and lots of "s--t"s (once with "head"), as well as "damn," "hell," and "bitch."
Repeated shots of Chevrolet truck logos, references to Oreos and Snapple.
Ease of Play
Characters drink and refer to whiskey and vodka. A grandmother grows marijuana to soothe her cancer (a baggie appears in a desk drawer, and plants are shown in her house). Someone thinks a vampire is a human "coked up on PCP."
