* [[spoiler:DarkIsNotEvil]]
* {{Deconstruction}}: Not only is it the UrExample of the zombie apocalypse, but it also deconstructs the notion of the last human survivors. In this world, the monsters have become the norm, and the last human is simply a relic of the past.



** Dead vampires crumble into dust when staked or otherwise killed. Neville remembers talking to a black gravekeeper who talked about vacuum-preserved corpses - any introduction of air would cause the corpses to [[ScienceMarchesOn crumble into dust.]]

In their eyes, he's an unstoppable monster from the old world slaughtering dozens of innocents during the days for seemingly no reason at all, and through his deeds, he becomes a monster of legends the same way vampires were for the humans, hence the title.]]

Essentially the UrExample of the ZombieApocalypse genre, though it predates that particular usage of the word "zombie" by 28 years or so, which was first used in ''Film/DawnOfTheDead''. It was adapted to film four different times:

* ZombieApocalypse: Pretty much the UrExample, despite being written fourteen years before [[NightOfTheLivingDead the modern pop culture zombie]] was introduced.
** It's been said that George Romero got his idea for ''Film/NightOfTheLivingDead'' after reading the book.

** There are two distinct variations: those who were infected while still alive, and infected who have reanimated from the bacteria.



** Vampirism is caused by bacteria, and infects the living and dead. Living vampires are vulnerable to everything a human is vulnerable to, but dead vampires' lack of a heartbeat causes a vacuum that seals off any wound that isn't large (such as small arms fire). Hence why stakes are so effective: they force the wound open and bypasses the vampire's regeneration.
