Continuity mistake: Right before Jerry busts through a stained glass window, Peter can be seen holding a wooden table leg - which was driven through Evil's wolf form earlier. In the following shot the leg is nowhere to be seen. (01:32:00)

Revealing mistake: During the basement finale, lines can be seen suspending Jerry in the air when he lunges towards Peter and sends him crashing into some shelves stacked with glass bottles. (01:37:55)

Revealing mistake: When Jerry is dragging Charley across the bedroom by his neck, he turns around and slams him into a wall. It wouldn't be unreasonable to assume that once his head makes contact, the wall's gonna break somewhere. But notice how the wall is already cracked right above the classic convertible picture a split second before it should be (widescreen only). (00:29:05)

More trivia for Fright Night

Question: What exactly is Billy Cole supposed to be? We know he is not a vampire because it roams around in the daytime, and we see his reflection in Peter Vincent's mirror, but after he is shot in the head, he turns into some kind of creature. So what is he?

Chosen answer: I would assume a "thrall" basically a ghoul that is attached to the vampire. A ghoul in old lore was created when a vampire gave blood to a living person, but did not take their blood first. They were then their daytime slaves, doing errands, finding victims for them, and took care of the vampire's body when the sun was out.
