Fright Night

Fright Night (1985)

7 corrected entries

Corrected entry: When the police detective Lennox and Charlie confront Cole in Jerry Dandridge's house, Charlie accuses him and his "housemate" of being vampires.Cole laughs, but Lennox mutters something almost inaudible, it's the words,"for heaven's sake." He then quickly and more loudly shouts "what the hell are you talking about." Later in the same scene Lennox next line is "for heaven's sake", this time said at normal volume and appropriate to the conversation. The actor may have gotten confused as to which line was next and managed to get away with it and this was the take that was actually used.

Correction: He was repeating his disbelief. Something that occurs in real life.

MasterOfAll

Corrected entry: Right before Peter starts his car and speeds away from Charley, who is desperately pleading for help with his vampire situation, a reflection of the camera is visible in its rear window for a few seconds.

Correction: I thought so too. But it is the reflection of the power line behind Charlie, not a camera.

Corrected entry: When Charlie and Peter Vincent are trying to save the Charlie's girlfriend, Peter says they can save her if they kill the vampire before dawn. When they knock out the windows in the basement to let light in, that's an indication it's not before dawn, it's after. Yet, they still save the girl.

Correction: True, Dandridge was not yet "dead", but he was not "sleeping" either. His rest was disturbed, he was battling for survival since before dawn, the battle just lasted until the sun rose. Since he was not in his rest state at dawn, we can assume she didn't undergo the transformation as usual.

Corrected entry: When Jerry Dandridge is about to drop Charley out the window, if you watch the upper right hand corner of the screen when he starts pushing him out, you see Charley's shirt rip from the nails in the window. But you never see, or hear about it again.

Correction: We don't need to hear about it again, it's not a plot point.

rswarrior

Corrected entry: When the wolf begins to transform back to evil, as the wolf tries to take the wooden stake out of his heart, he leans forward and you can actually see the human arm behind him. He can't have an animals arm and a human arm at the same time.

Correction: He could easily have been partly changed back into his human self, after all when he is dying he starts changing back; the very fact that he was staked in the heart meant he was dying, so he could have started to change back.

Corrected entry: During the club scene where Dandridge and Amy are dancing, her hair is flat. She walks away from him and turns back around, now her hair is curled and fluffed up.

Correction: Her change during the disco scene is all part of Dandridges hypnotism of her. Turning her from a skitty little teenager to a seductive soon-to-be woman. One who can be lured away from her boyfriend...

Corrected entry: In the Peter Vincent video on the television at the beginning of the movie he raises a stake beside his head to kill his victim. The point of the stake is facing backwards.

Correction: The "backward stake" is a deliberate part of the film. It signifies a typical "B-Grade Peter Vincent movie" - eg- bad acting, lousy dialogue, and poor continuity. The stake just reinforced this.

Mistakes

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.

Trivia

This can only be seen for a brief second on the widescreen side of the DVD. In the scene where Dandridge follows Charlie and Amy in Club Radio, there is a man standing by a mirrored column, and Dandridge walks behind him, and for a second you can see Dandridge's shoulder reflected in the mirror. Vampires do not have reflections.
