Many of the character names are derived from mythology and religion; Luka s(the Swedish form of Luke), Joel and John are all names of books and characters in the Christian bible, Jacob is derived from the patriarch in the Old Testament and Sebastian is named after Saint Sebastian, the patron saint of plagues. Maria is the name of the mother of Jesus. In Christianity it's said that who ever comes to Jesus Christ and drinks his blood in the holy communion shall have life eternal. Maria is the progenitor of all the vampires in the film and her blood gives eternal life. Being a little child she is also obviously a virgin. Saga's name is, in contrast to the above mention, taken from Norse mythology; Saga is one of the gods in Norse mythology. The word also means: The one who sees - the official website refers to Saga as a person who likes to study other people. See more »

If you're expecting a true horror movie, you'll be disappointed. This movie was hilarious. And that is exactly the way it was meant to be enjoyed, as a comedy horror (along the lines of "Shawn of the Dead"). The storyline that follows the daughter is better developed than the one with the mother, and plays for more laughs. I saw it courtesy of the Seattle International Film Festival, at midnight, with a theatre full of other vampire film lovers. My biggest complaint would be that it does take a little too long for the opening sequence (taking place during WWII, German with Swedish and English subtitles) to be explained. It's also the scariest part of the whole film. If you don't like horror films, this is a great one to see. Rent it and have a bunch of friends over.
