* DrivenToSuicide: The Vampire girl in the prologue, who kills herself by sitting outside during the sunrise. Promotional Material for the film reveals that she was in fact Patient Zero. It's likely she committed suicide because she began a worldwide outbreak that transformed everyone into Blood-thirsty Vampires.
** Another factor to her suicide is probably [[spoiler: the fact that both Vampires and Humans are now an endangered species; if Humans go extinct, Vampires will lose their food supply and turn into ravenous monsters.]]

* BrokenAesop: The film set in a world of vampires and a dwindling supply of blood is basically one long analogy for our dependance of oil. Which is fine right up until the end where they create a substitute for blood which gives us not, "don't blindly waste resources and deal with the problem before it becomes a problem" but "blindly waste resources and science will stop the collapse of civilization just in the nick of time."
** It gets further broken when you consider that alternatives to fossil-fuels already exist; they're just not yet economical.

* OurVampiresAreDifferent: Surprisingly averted. For all the "viral outbreak" talk and Edward's very empirical scientific approach to vampirism as a disease, the vampires in this story display all the classic supernatural attributes from more traditional stories: they must feed on blood regularly, do not have reflections in a mirror (however they do appear on camera), will burn at the slightest touch of sunlight, and will explode in a spectacular ball of flame when staked. {{Moviebob}} himself dubbed this film "the anti-''Literature/{{Twilight}}''" of movies.

Added DiffLines:

* EveryCarIsAPinto: Played with. During the car chase one of the human hunters' cars crashes and there's a huge explosion. But it isn't the ''car'' that blows up from the crash, it's the ''vampires inside of the car'' who blow up when the long sharp metal beams go clear through the windshield and stake them (see MadeOfExplodium below).

* MeaningfulName: Elvis's nickname is a ShoutOut to the Elvis Presley song "Burning Love" [[spoiler: because he went from being an immortal vampire to a warm-blooded human, by accidentally setting himself on fire.]]
