\n%%* HolidayInCambodia* TheAtoner: Sang, for unintentionally siring the ''jai tham'' vampires.
* BettyAndVeronica: Amanda and Sang respectively for Connor. The former is his actual girlfriend who was captured by the BigBad and the other is a sexy female vampire whom he falls in love with over the course of the movie.
* HolidayInCambodia: The movie takes place entirely on Thailand and follows a Muay Thay fighter and his girlfriend vacationing there.
* InNameOnly: This third entry in the series has no relation whatsoever with previous movies.
* OnlyInItForTheMoney: The local vampire hunters are driven mostly by monetary gain rather than personal reasons or any sense of justice like previous slayers. [[spoiler:At the end, they double cross the heroes and attempt to prevent them from ending the curse so they wouldn't be out of the vampire business]].
* OurVampiresAreDifferent: There are two types of them in the movie - the good ''phi song neng'' vs the evil ''jai tham''. They don't appear to be related to Valek and other vampires in any way.
