The Lost Boys

A mother and her two sons move to a small coast town in California. The town is plagued by bikers and some mysterious deaths. The younger boy makes friends with two other boys who claim to be vampire hunters while the older boy is drawn into the gang of bikers by a beautiful girl. The older boy starts sleeping days and staying out all night while the younger boy starts getting into trouble because of his friends' obsession.

Continuity mistake: Near the middle of the film we see that Michael has a transparent reflection in a mirror because he is a half vampire. Yet, earlier in the film when the other vampires, who are full vampires, are in the video store, their reflections can be clearly seen in a glass counter. (00:12:10)

Question: This may just be me over analysing the film but this is something that has been eating away at me for a while - In this film, one of the vampires tells the Frog Brothers that garlic doesn't work, however through the next two films, Edgar Frog can be seen using garlic numerous times. Was the vampire lying or is this a mistake on the film maker's part?

Answer: He was lying. He was trying to scare them, not expecting them to scoop the water and throw it at him.
