* [[YouSaidYouCouldntDance You Said You Couldn't Play Piano]]: India's suspicions are roused by the fact that when at the piano bench with her mother, Charlie pretends he can barely play Hot Cross Buns so Evelyn will have to teach him, but when he's with ''her''... The exchange of dialogue doesn't take place, but it seems highly suggested by some [[DeathGlare interesting looks.]]

* GenreSavvy: [[spoiler: Aunt Gwendolyn, who's terrified enough of Charlie to not say anything in front of him even as much as she tries to intervene, trying to get both India and Evelyn alone so that she can warn them, then later decided to stay in a different hotel from the one originally planned so as to hide from him. This is all to no avail, unfortunately]]

* AbusiveParents: "You know, I've often wondered why it is we have children? And the conclusion I've come to is, we want someone to get it ''right'' this time. But not me. Personally speaking, I can't wait to watch life ''tear you apart.''" Evelyn, ladies and gents. Although, in Evelyn's defense, this statement was made after [[spoiler: she caught India in what was probably an AlmostKiss with her [[IncestIsRelative uncle]] Charlie, who Evelyn herself had been having an affair with]].

Despite having a title that's rather similar to the surname of [[Creator/BramStoker that guy]] who wrote {{Literature/Dracula}}, the film is ''not,'' in fact, about vampires.[[note]] Park already did that in {{Film/Thirst}}.[[/note]] (Although WordOfGod admits that the book was a big influence, as was Alfred Hitchcock's ''Film/ShadowOfADoubt''.)

* CouldHaveAvoidedThisPlot: If only Richard Stoker had told his family about his brother. [[spoiler:At the very least, they would have known that Charlie was lying about where he was all this time.]]

* TeensAreMonsters: India's classmates are a bunch of chuckling, sneering bullies who harass her with drawings of her naked and show off by pretending to punch her, stopping millimeters away from actually striking her, in an attempt to make her flinch. India, however, is different -- after all, she's legally an adult now.

* TheJailBaitWait: Averted. India is already, as Charlie would say, [[ArcWords of age]]. [[spoiler:Because Charlie specifically waits to enter India's life until her 18th birthday, having been preparing to be with her -- and possibly preparing ''her'' [[WifeHusbandry to be with him]] -- since ''his'' 18th birthday.]]
