* CoversAlwaysLie: The 2011 Echo Bridge release of the film on Blu-ray mistakenly included a picture of Rebecca Gayheart on the back cover even though she doesn't actually appear in the film. The picture was taken from the prequel "Hangman's Daughter".

* BlackComedy: It's a Tarantino movie. Pretty much part and parcel with his style. Of particular note is the opening scene - they [[spoiler: set the liquor-store clerk on fire, he dives out from behind the counter shooting at them... only to collapse in a popcorn display, his flaming corpse setting the kernels popping.]]

* 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.

* 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.

* 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.
