Fright Night

Audio problem: Right before Charley gets thrown into the closet doors, Jerry has him by the throat threatening to kill his mother if she wakes up. In the shots of Charley trying to free himself of the grip, Jerry's lips are moving but no sound can be heard. (00:28:15)

Revealing mistake: When Charley stabs Dandridge in the hand with his pencil, he stabs the hand holding him by the neck. The depth of the wound on Dandridge's hand reveals that the pencil should have stabbed Charlie in his neck and given him a severe wound, if not kill him.

Question: During the scene where Dandridge is enthralling and dancing with Amy in the nightclub, the song they're dancing to sounds similar to REM's "Personal Jesus", but I don't believe it is that song. I can't tell what song it might be or even if it is on the soundtrack listing on IMDB. Does anyone know the name of that song and what group/person/composer is playing it?

Diana Lucas

Chosen answer: First of all, REM didn't record "Personal Jesus," Depeche Mode did. The song I think you're referring to is Ian Hunter's "Good Man in a Bad Time." The other song Amy and Jerry danced to was Evelyn Champagne King's "Give it Up" which could never be confused with "Personal Jesus." I hope this helps!
