* CreatorBacklash: Writer-director Kurt Wimmer and star Creator/MillaJovovich disowned the released version of the film, as it was taken out of their hands early in post-production, cut down from 120 minutes to 88 minutes, neutered from an R rating to a PG-13, with the final cut featuring unfinished VFX.
* CreatorKiller: The Movie killed Kurt Wimmer's directing career. He has since then gone back to writing and writing only.
* DeletedScenes: Over half-an-hour of footage was cut from the final film, only eight minutes of which were included in the unrated, extended edition.
* DuelingMovies: With ''Film/UnderworldEvolution'' or ''Film/BladeTrinity'' or possibly both and maybe even with ''Film/ThirtyDaysOfNight'', which would explain why the vampire subtext seemed a little buried.
* ExecutiveMeddling:
** Wimmer's initial rough cut of the film ran 120 minutes. Shortly after turning in this assembly cut, Wimmer and Milla were locked out of editing, and the film was rushed through editing in order to meet the intended release date. As a result, the film's extensive visual effects were left incomplete, resulting in loads of SpecialEffectsFailure.
** The theatrical cut ran 88 minutes, with conspicuously BloodlessCarnage due to the studio's decision to cut the film from Wimmer's intended hard-R to a more widely marketable PG-13.
** An extended cut was released on home video, running at 97 minutes, but was not released on Blu-ray due to Sony's then-refused at the time to allow unrated or NC-17 content on the format.
** The only remnant of Wimmer's original vision can be found in the {{Novelization}}, which was based o on an earlier, pre-shooting script.

** In vitro fertilization is considered cutting edge.
** Everybody carries around small video cameras to identify the vampires, which would have been superfluous in the age of the camera phone.
