Phenomena in artwork: A vampire

The vampires closest to the classic image. They have distorted facial features, teeth and deformed body. Vampires can look like normal people and turn into bats. They lose control at the sight of human blood. Their bodies are much softer than human, and they can be pierced through with blunt objects such as a table leg. The vampire blood green (the filmmakers purposely painted it to avoid nagging from the Commission on the ratings).

Vampire conversion occurs after the bite, with different people this process takes different amounts of time. Becoming a vampire, the person loses control of himself and they start running instincts. However, it retains part of the personality and the ability to speak.

To kill a vampire in several ways: to pierce right through him, to pierce his heart (even if it has previously extracted from the body, the vampire will die after that), to burn, to pour Holy water. One of the vampires dies after swallowing a chain with a cross. Also fatal to them is sunlight. After death the bodies of the vampires quickly decompose and sometimes combust, and under the influence of sunlight and does explode.

The origin of vampires remains unsolved, although at the end of the film demonstrate the ancient Indian pyramid, on top of which is a bar. We can assume that vampires are representatives of an ancient evil that lived in this territory for many centuries.
