  • Trivia

    • Trivia: In Romania there is a superstition that a person should be buried face down with their mouth sewn shut, and this way a vampire would not be able to rise from its grave.
      Another superstition states that sewing the mouth shut prevents an evil spirit from entering and possessing the corpse. Also, by staking Navarro, Chelsea is preventing him from becoming a vampire, even if eventually fed upon.

  • Quotes

    • Chelsea: When our people came here from Romania, the creature hid among them. They built this fort away from others to keep it hidden. As long as we supply it with food...
      Point: You mean humans.
      Chelsea: ...stays here with us. Do you think we want this burden? We have dedicated our lives to saving a world we've never even seen. We know what we do is wrong, but what choice do we have?
      Point: Kill the son of a bitch!

    • Lemmon: ... and why this all seems like a really bad version of Deliverance?
