A vorvolakas (also vrykolakas) occurs in Greek folklore as an undead creature capable of causing harm to the living. Its characteristics are similar to many other characters of legend, but it is most closely associated with vampires. In Hollywood movies such as Dracula
(1931), the word vampire is often translated to Greek as vrykolakas. However, traditional vorvolakas are not noted for blood-drinking. See more
Throughout the film the general wears a jacket with two stars on each collar. As he is quarantined on the island, he has no other clothes, just the uniform he was wearing when he arrived. However when the general confronts Davis and Thea in the woods, his jacket suddenly has no stars on the collar. In the next scene in which he appears, the next morning, the stars reappear on the jacket collar. See more
