Phenomena in artwork: A vampire

The film presents stereotypical vampires: they drink blood, sleep in coffins, are not reflected in the mirror (they are in the pictures and video) and sunlight. Depending on the age of the vampires look different: recently turned vampire a little different from the average person (except complexion), while a vampire who has lived for several thousand years, acquires protruding teeth, large pointed ears and long claws.

Vampires can fly in human form and transform into bats. They can't touch silver items: those are eating away their flesh. Under the action of sunlight vampires instantly ignite and burn, leaving only a charred corpse.

Vampires have hypnotic powers and can inspire a person through different visions, and to subjugate his will. A vampire cannot enter a home without invitation, but can hypnotize a person and make him invite himself to the house.

A vampire can turn a mortal, discovering it and then allowing him to drink his blood. The process of transformation symptoms similar to the flu, but even bleeding from the eyes. After treatment the person remains forever in the age in which it was paid. However, if the vampire for a long time without drinking blood, his body begins to age and die.

Vampires can't eat regular food, she rejected their body.

Phenomena in artwork: Zombies

The zombies in the film are shown briefly and are different from standard images. They can talk, have free will, and generally quite reasonable. Judging by their appearance, they are the living dead: their flesh decomposed, the body visible scars.

Zombies are slow, but not as much as shown in the classic film. Zombies feed on human flesh (but without specifying).
