* WrongGenreSavvy: Saga is quick to realize that her new friends are vampire and by logic uses the first anti-vampire tool she can put her hands on: two sticks which she uses to form a cross. Unfortunately, she is not genre savvy enough to know that [[ReligionIsMagic she needs faith for that to work]]. By extension, this makes Vega DangerouslyGenreSavvy. And the Shape too, as he has made his chest strong enough. He knows impaling the heart can kill him so he has made modified himself so that his chest in his transformed state can withstand such attacks better [[spoiler:although it weakens him]].

Added DiffLines:

* ImprovisedCross: In one scene, a character puts two sticks together to repel a vampire. This is subverted when the vampire is unimpressed and points out that the sticks actually form an "X." This is double subverted when the character rectifies their mistake and the vampire immediately recoils.

Written four years before the ''30 Days of Night'' comic and released a year before [[Film/ThirtyDaysOfNight the movie]], the first [[UsefulNotes/{{Sweden}} Swedish]] vampire film shows a crazy Nazi-vampire (yes, Nazi-vampire) living up in the [[GrimUpNorth frozen north of Sweden]] where the sun does not show up for a month. The arrival of medical doctor Annika and her teenage daughter Saga unleashes the worst bloodbath Sweden has witnessed since TheVikings, where everything from cute little bunnies to waffen-SS gets torn apart by vampires.

** (1) The virus is magical, the most likely explanation.
** (2) The brain is the last part of the body to be infected, completing the transformation. Some people seem to go through serve personality changes while others remain the same, althrough more sinister. This could mean that the effect of religious symbols are simply a part of the psychosomatic problems caused by infection and the characters impression of vampire stories affects how religious symbols hurt them in a kind of YourMindMakesItReal. This is why Vega is not affected by a cross while [[spoiler: Sebastian]] is: she is used to modern vampire tales where the crosses have no effect. The problem with this explanation is that it would be kind kind of weird if the virus would cause a vampire to start to burn if touched by a holy person. It's also important to know that Sweden is a very secular nation. It's possible and very likely that Saga does not has real faith and because her cross was make shift and not blessed it has nothing more than a geometric form. Note that Saga is the only person to use a cross as a defense rather than conventional weapons. She is simply GenreSavvy.
