Added DiffLines:

* DownerEnding: [[spoiler:Curt gets infected, and rather than spend their lives as zombies, he and Julie decide to kill themselves]].


* HorrorHunger: The hero's (undead) girlfriend develops painful hunger pangs, but none of the snacks that he procures for her will sate her appetite. Her zombie cravings cause her to mutilate herself in order to drown out the hunger... but she feels much better after she munches on a couple of street toughs.

Her zombie cravings cause her to mutilate herself in order to drown out the hunger... but she feels much better after she munches on a couple of street toughs. As the film goes on, even mutilating herself starts to fail to stave off the hunger. It gets so bad that at one point, she even attacks Curt.


* FanDisservice: Julie is topless for the last portion of the film. But as she continues to zombify, she proceeds to cut rather deep into her body with broken shards of glass, ends up getting covered in blood, and inserts rusty old nails into several parts of her body. Not to mention the fact that she also kills a few people along the way.

* AttractiveZombie: Julie remains as attractive as when she was alive (albeit turning more "dominatrix-like") as the LoveStory is crucial to the plot. Even prompting a [[AttemptedRape rape attempt]] from one of the villains.

* LoveMakesYouDumb: Curt probably wouldn't have caused all hell to break loose (twice in fact), plus not have died himself in the end, if he hadn't loved Julie as much as he did.
