The Lost Boys

Question: As a vampire, Max wasn't allowed in the house until Michael invited him. How were David and his friends allowed inside since they were never invited? Also, how was Star, even though she was only half-vampire able to get into the house? She asked for permission but Michael said no.

Answer: It's not that they can't "get in." Its that once you invite them.it renders you "powerless" (according to Max). Lets not forget that David and his friends were all killed. Max was stronger and probably would have won if Grandpa didn't crash into the house and impale him. Basically they can enter anytime...but being invited in gives them an advantage.

Gavin Jackson

Answer: Obviously, they were all invited in, one after another.

Only Max was invited in. Nowhere in the movie does it show David and the others being invited. And again, how did Star get into the house when she wasn't invited either?

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?

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

Question: Why is Laddie wearing a Confederate soldier's jacket?

Chosen answer: There's no particular reason. It's probably just something he found and liked.

Answer: That was in fashion in the USA, in the 80's.

Question: Am I missing something? Michael technically isn't the man of the house. The grandfather is as he owns the house. So when David says that he won't come in until the man of the house invites him in, he wasn't asked by the right person, making his invite invalid.

Answer: The requirement isn't that the man of the house invites him in, just that he's invited in. He uses the "man of the house" line to trick Michael into inviting him in.

Jason Hoffman

Question: When Max approaches the house for his second date with Lucy, being a vampire he asks Michael to invite him in so people in the house would be, in his words, "rendered powerless". As a result, Sam and the frog brothers can't prove he is a vampire. But how did Max know that his vampirism would be tested in the first place?

Gavin Jackson

Chosen answer: A vampire probably wouldn't survive for very long without playing it safe - he's probably in the habit of insisting on being invited in (if possible) whereever he goes, just in case.

Question: How is David able to make Michael see the Maggots and Worms in the Chinese food, considering Michael hasn't yet drunk his blood at this point?

Gavin Jackson

Chosen answer: Many legends give the vampire certain rather hypnotic abilities - this is presumably along the same lines.

Answer: I always assumed it was because the joint they passed was dusted.

Question: Did Kiefer Sutherland really have to bleach his hair or was his hairstyle simply a removable hairpiece?
