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.
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)
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)
Trivia: The boardwalk scenes were filmed on location at the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk in Santa Cruz, California.
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!
David: Drink some of this, Michael. Be one of us.
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?
