* AlwaysChaoticEvil: Whereas vampires in many other movies are often played up as the twisted, tormented former humans they actually are, here the bloodsuckers are depicted as either this trope or mindless animals who roar and snarl. (Satanico is the only one of these creatures who retains more than a modicum of her humanity, and then only in the intellectual sense - and ''certainly'' not in the moral sense.)

* AnyoneCanDie: And boy howdy do they by the second half of the flick. Even the villains are not immune to this - [[spoiler:Satanico dies very quickly, much to her own astonishment..]]

* BigBad: Strange, semi-subverted example. Satanico clearly seems to be the leader of the vampires but [[IncrediblyLamePun she bites it]] half way through and the situation becomes one more similar to a zombie movie (only with vampires) with the vampires as a mob of faceless undead monsters.

* HotAsHell: Not {{Satan}} herself but Satanico Pandemonium fits to a T.

* NightOfTheLivingMooks: A rather weird example in that the vampires begin with a clear leader in Satanico and are clearly individuals with personality themselves, but once they are killed the ''subsequent'' vampires are interchangeable faceless undead monsters. Curiously though some of the vampires can shift into different forms.

* OneWingedAngel: Ugh. Let's just say you'll need some economy-size BrainBleach after seeing Satanico's true form.

* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: Creator/SalmaHayek is a real-life ophidiophobe, such that she almost didn't take the part of Satanico Pandemonium because of it. Creator/RobertRodriguez conned her into thinking that Music/{{Madonna}} was ready to take the part instead, so she spent two months with therapists in order to overcome her fear of snakes.

* AndShowItToYou: Played with in the first film, when a vampire's heart gets ripped out but it keeps on coming, until its disembodied heart is ''impaled with a toothpick''.

* RunningGag: Seth's catchphrase he uses before going into action follows a particular formula of "Ok, Xrs let's get Xing!". E.g. "Ok, ramblers, let's get rambling!", "Ok, heavy drinkers, let's drink hard!" and "Ok, vampire killers, let's kill vampires!"

The film, while fun, didn't make that great of an impact and is now mostly watched by Creator/QuentinTarantino fans. Much of the criticism against the film is that regardless whether or not the second half is viewed as passable, most people will admit that it was a definite drop-off in quality compared with the first half.

The series got two DirectToVideo sequels, though sharing none of the creative cast and not following any of the characters introduced in the first film with the only connecting thread being the vampire bar/lair, The Titty Twister. They're usually considered InNameOnly by some fans.
