R | | Horror, Thriller
A teenager discovers that the newcomer in his neighborhood is a vampire, so he turns to an actor in a television horror show for help dealing with the undead.
It was Chris Sarandon's idea to have Jerry eating apples throughout the film. While researching Vampire lore, Sarandon looked at information about bats and concluded, "Jerry had a lot of Fruit Bat in his DNA."
That bastard! Why didn't he tell us there was going to be a pop quiz?
Evil Ed Thompson: That's the point of a pop quiz, Brewster... to surprise you.
After Amy shoves a burger into Charley's face, some of it is on his coat. In the next scene, its spotless with not even a stain.
Just as the screen cuts to black at the end, Evil Ed can be heard saying "your so cool Brewster!"
The Swedish version (cinema and video) misses the following: The transformation scene with Ed was removed (1m 50sec), and the scene where Dandrige's assistant melts was shortened by 16 sec.
