How We Determine Our Grades

After watching a movie with your children or students, we encourage parents and teachers to look for education opportunities to teach with movies. Here are a few discussion topics that can help with lesson plans or teaching in the home.

What elements of the classic Western are included in this story? Does the script take some of these features (such as the black hat) too seriously, or are they meant to be a tongue-in-cheek detail?

Once the war with the vampires is over, the Priests are out of work and forced to take menial jobs, if they can find them. How does this compare with war veterans in our society? Are they often left without opportunities for meaningful work? Like the Priests, what sacrifices have they made for the welfare of society?

What oppressive restrictions do the religious leaders put on the people? Why are they afraid to admit to the vampire attacks?
