Silver bullets are a rather new addition to the vampire myth and the film is not least about nostalgia. The old myths knew staking, beheading, and holy water to be the methods to kill a vampire. Wilhelm Murnau invented, for his film Nosferatu, eine Symphonie des Grauens (1922), the additional method of killing a vampire by exposing it to sunlight. (In Bram Stoker's Dracula, the vampire was merely "weakened" by daylight.) Nosferatu is the beginning of the vampire as far as films go, so this method was adopted by Jarmusch. Apart from that, he refrains from picking up newer additions to the myth and rather invented the wooden bullet as a reference to the old method of staking a vampire.
