The Lost Boys

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)

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

Continuity mistake: When Michael first comes home after becoming a vampire he gets some milk out of the refrigerator and when he collapses the whole top of the carton busts open but when his mom comes home and picks it up only one side of the carton is open. (00:37:45 - 00:45:40)

Trivia: Mary Lambert was originally set to direct, but was fired due to creative differences between her and producer Richard Donner.

Grandpa: One thing I about living in Santa Carla I never could stomach. All the damn vampires.

Max: It was all going to be so perfect, Lucy. Just like one big, happy family. Your boys... And my boys.
Edgar Frog: Great! The Bloodsucking Brady Bunch!

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.

Charles Austin Miller

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: 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.

Shipper

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.
