** Getting Frankie to turn Alison into a vampire smacks strongly of [[RapeIsASpecialKindOfEvil "correctional" rape]].

The first quarter of the movie sets up the all-vampire society with minimal dialogue; the art direction and atmospherics help sell the reality of this world. To keep the sun from destroying them, wealthier vampires drive special cars with shields to block out the sunlight while ordinary citizens make their way through the cities using a massive network of underground streets whenever they have to be awake during the day. Blood [[IndustrializedEvil is harvested from humans]] in Matrix-like collection farms and sold to citizens at coffee bars.

* VampireApocalypse: Not immediately obvious, but as the blood supply dwindles and the effects of deprivation grow ever more widespread and pronounced, the vampire civilization gradually degenerates into something very much like this as the subsider population begins to grow and blood riots break out at the coffee stands. [[spoiler: Fortunately, the cure is as contagious as the original vampirism was.]]
** Even more so actually: Vampirism is spread one feed at a time (assuming the victim lives), from feeder to victim. [[spoiler:Humanity is spread in bursts to everyone who feeds from the ex-vampire,]] which considering the feeding frenzies we see, seems to indicate that it will have a much faster chain reaction.
** These feeding frenzies do demonstrate one drawback, however: the one bitten is unlikely to survive. [[spoiler:Ex-vampires will probably do better for themselves to try luring hungry vampires to them one at a time.]] The extraction technology Charles Bromley's corporation was using might also be effective for gathering and distributing the cure without endangering the donors.



* ZombieApocalypse: Not immediately obvious, but as the blood supply dwindles and the effects of deprivation grow ever more widespread and pronounced, the vampire civilization gradually degenerates into something very much like this as the subsider population begins to grow and blood riots break out at the coffee stands.
