  • Angst? What Angst?: For someone who loses several people he personally knew like his piano teacher and his girlfriend over the course of the movie, Dag acts remarkably well-adjusted. Hell, he doesn't even hold that much of a grudge with Lorelei's killer and ends up settling with her instead. Or for that matter, the human townsfolk isn't particularly perturbed by their loved ones being butchered during the attack.

  • Crosses the Line Twice: A man getting devoured alive and torn to pieces by zombies onscreen? Gross and disturbing. Him narrating what they are doing with him and complaining all the time? Bloody Hilarious.
  • Does This Remind You of Anything?: Riblet tycoon Rick kinda vaguely (mainly because of his hair) looks like an USA president elected a bit later. We won't overinterprete that.
  • Fridge Horror: The Angst? What Angst? and Inferred Holocaust bits make an unfortunate amount of sense when you consider that Dillford's citizens (with three different species holding a rather fragile peace together and the fact that two of these species explicitly feed on humans) might be used to carnage and bloodshed at this point. Who knows how many riots on this scale (minus the "alien invasion" part, of course) have happened in the past?

  • Inferred Holocaust: Several Dillford citizens were killed during the creatures' onslaught and somehow an alien invasion doesn't become a international concern.
  • One-Scene Wonder:
    • The vampire hunter coach that dispatches vampires in rapid succession as if he was Blade... Right before he gets killed by zombies.
    • The alien's combined form that appears at the very end of the movie, since they are voiced by Werner Herzog.
  • What an Idiot!: Stuart Miller when letting Petra (a vampire) and Ned (a zombie) inside his bunker projected specifically to guard against creatures like them.
    You'd Expect: He tell them to piss off or at the very least, have a weapon in hand to keep them at bay if they try anything funny.
    Instead: He promptly hits on Petra, telling her that they will have to breed in order to survive the alien invasion (given she is a vampire, its unlikely this would worked either)
    The Result: Stuart is immediately killed by Petra and Ned.
