Revealing mistake: When Charley stabs Dandridge in the hand with his pencil, he stabs the hand holding him by the neck. The depth of the wound on Dandridge's hand reveals that the pencil should have stabbed Charlie in his neck and given him a severe wound, if not kill him.
Continuity mistake: In the beginning of the film where Charlie watches Dandridge and Cole move the coffin into their house, there is a close-up shot of Amy removing her blouse. The film then cuts to a close-up again of Charlie and in the background Amy's blouse is still on (probably only visible in the widescreen version of the film). (00:05:20)
Trivia: This can only be seen for a brief second on the widescreen side of the DVD. In the scene where Dandridge follows Charlie and Amy in Club Radio, there is a man standing by a mirrored column, and Dandridge walks behind him, and for a second you can see Dandridge's shoulder reflected in the mirror. Vampires do not have reflections.
Trivia: The drink that Jerry has in his hand while sitting in the living room is a Bloody Mary.
Jerry Dandrige: Welcome to Fright Night...for real.
Evil Ed: Oh, you're so cool, Brewster.
Evil Ed: Kill me, Charlie! Before I turn into a vampire and give you a hickey!
Question: When Evil is walking down the alley, why did Jerry chase after him? Evil didn't believe in the existence of vampires, so he wouldn't have been a threat to Jerry at all.
Question: During the scene where Dandridge is enthralling and dancing with Amy in the nightclub, the song they're dancing to sounds similar to REM's "Personal Jesus", but I don't believe it is that song. I can't tell what song it might be or even if it is on the soundtrack listing on IMDB. Does anyone know the name of that song and what group/person/composer is playing it?
