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.
During the scene where Amy and Evil Ed arrive at Charley's house and find his room adorned with crosses and candles, Stephen Geoffreys was suffering from a bad case of food poisoning.
It was just Evil messin' around again.
Amy: Cut it out Evil, it's not funny!
Charley Brewster: What if he was really in trouble?
Amy: Charley, you're not gonna let him sucker you in again are you?
The holes in "Evil" Ed's neck disappear after he shows them to Peter.
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.
