* HypeBacklash: Believe it or not the film actually did get quite a bit of hype in the UK prior to its release -- in part because of the popularity of Corden and Horne, and also because of the number of people who thought "[[RefugeInAudacity hey, with a title like that, it's got to be good, right?]]" -- leading to it taking quite the critical drubbing when it didn't live up to expectations.


* ClicheStorm: The introduction, if nothing else.

* UnfortunateImplications: Not really "UnfortunateImplications" because the whole film is obviously full of this stuff intentionally, ''but''...
** How about the fact that there wasn't a single positive male character in the entire movie? Fletch was an immature, cowardly pervert and Jimmy was a whiny doormat. Paul McGann's character was the closest thing to a positive male character and he was pushing it, as a vicar who swore heavily. Let's not forget the all-male group of villagers who sent the boys and girls to be sacrificed either. Do any of these men come off well compared to {{Action Girl}} Lotte?
** Jimmy has some positive elements (he's not a JerkAss and is at least somewhat mature, unlike Fletch), however he spends most of the movie bewildered by what' going on around him. Fletch on the other hand is a bit of a cowardly JerkAss who, complaining all the way, is at least able to deal with the situation at hand.


* InferredHolocaust: Every female child has been turned into a vampire on their eighteenth birthday for a thousand years, do a bit of quick math and that means there were a lot of women who were turned or slain (probably by their own families...).

** Guess what kills the big bad lesbian -- a phallic sword.
** That was completely intentional and PlayedForLaughs. If you want to send the implications for another spin, the sword was blessed by some demon named Daeldo ("dildo").
*** Also can serve as a piece of ''FridgeBrilliance'': The lesbian vampire queen stole [=McClaren=]'s wife away from him to turn into her lesbian lover, so he forged a sword to kill her. Making the handle penis-shaped might add salt into the wound.
** How about the fact that these blood-sucking ladies, when impaled with a phallic object (stake) or otherwise fatally injured, ''burst and melt in a splurt of suspicious white goop''?
** Actually subverted in one aspect. Once [[spoiler:all of the cursed girls were made human again, one can assume that they would also stop being lesbians, but apparently not.]]
** As a completely different example of UnfortunateImplications, how about the fact that there wasn't a single positive male character in the entire movie? Fletch was an immature, cowardly pervert and Jimmy was a whiny doormat. Paul McGann's character was the closest thing to a positive male character and he was pushing it, as a vicar who swore heavily.
