Buffy,(Kristy Swanson) a high school cheerleader, gets a visit by a stranger, Donald Sutherland, who tells Buffy, that she is destined to be a vampire slayer. So, Sutherland teaches Buffy the art of vampire slaying. In the mean time, Buffy meats a boy at school, (Luke Perry)who falls for Buffy, just in time for the bad guy Lothos, (Rutger Hauer) to show up and start wrecking havoc at the high school. Lothos starts being a pest, by sending vampires to kill Buffy, played by Paul aka (Pee-Wee Herman) Reubens. Also one of the students is a young Hilary Swank (The Core).
Continuity mistake: When the vampire is on the hood of Pike's car, his head is just barely on the windshield. However, in the next shot from Pike's view, the vamp's head is covering the entire windshield. This happens several times. (00:39:35)
Trivia: In chapter 18 of the DVD when Buffy is cheering at the basketball game and Grueller (now a vampire) shows up we see him growling at a player from the other team. The player then tells him "Here, take it" and hands him the ball. The player from the other team (in the red) is Ben Affleck, pre-stardom.
Question: I've been wanting to finally watch the TV series, but I've never understood one thing... I know the movie is technically not 100% canonical with the series, but I've heard they later tried to connect it with the series with a comic-book adaptation. So should I watch the movie before the series? Or should I just go ahead and watch the series on its own, and treat the movie as an entirely separate "thing"? Or can it be done either way?
