Continuity mistake: The vampire who gets tossed into the grinder mysteriously reappears in the final showdown. You see him twice while the head vampire is fighting with Eben.

Suggested correction: The Vampire tossed into the Muffin-Monster is named Arvin, played by actor Andrew Stehlin. The Vampire in the final scene is named Archibald and played by Tim McLachlan. They look similar due to the prosthetics and CGI used to make the actors look less human but they are not the same character. You are supposed to use the fact that Archibald wears a black jacket and Arvin wears a grey shirt to differentiate them.

Deputy Billy Kitka: You know, Beau's not so bad. Why'd you bother writing him up?
Sheriff Eben Oleson: He lives all alone out there on the south ridge. A little citation now and then lets him know he's a part of this town.

Question: Towards the end of the movie, since everyone knew that it would be sunrise soon and since Stella was comfortable enough under the car, why would Eben inject himself and become one of them? Had he waited until dawn Stella could still be waiting under the car and everyone else could also be fine in the house.

Answer: It's stated in the movie they'll freeze to death under the car before sunrise. Whether that's true or not, Eben believes it, and that's why he acts.

Answer: The previous answer misses one very important aspect that forced Eben's hand. Prior to him injecting himself with the vampire blood, the vampires had broken apart the oil pipeline and set the oil ablaze to cover up their actions. The fire spread quickly and was nearing Stella's hiding place. As a result, Gail and Stella risked either burning to death or leaving their hiding place and being torn apart by the ten or so vampires who were standing nearby. Eben sacrificed himself so she could make a run for it. He understood - as well as stated in the film - they were in no shape to fight them as they were. The vampire blood was the only chance he had at saving her.
