The Lost Boys

Revealing mistake: Look closely at the footage when the vampires are entering the cave. Later when they are exiting the cave, the waves are flowing backwards. The same footage has been reversed. (01:17:05)

Revealing mistake: When Alan Frog is reaching for a stake off of Edgar Frogs back the stake is a "trick" stake. He pulls it facing upward and the tip falls down into the stake. As he lowers it off camera he flips it downward and then shows it again and the tip is back out. (01:10:35)

Other mistake: Max says that Michael is the "Man of the house" and won't come in until he's invited, which Michael sarcastically does, except Michael isn't the man of the house - its actually his grandfather who owns it.

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.

Answer: It could also be that it was a mixture of garlic and holy water. They fill their water guns at the end and Sam squirts Paul in the face and it works on him there too, so not sure if it's the holy water that caused that or if it was in fact the garlic as well.
