Did You Know?
The original screenplay written by Jan Fischer
and James Jeremias
was originally about a bunch of "Goonie-type 5th-6th grade kid vampires", with the Frog Brothers being "chubby 8 year old cub scouts", and Star being a boy instead of a love interest. The original inspiration came from James, who caught upon the notion that Peter Pan could fly, visited Wendy and her brothers at night, and never grew old. The simple notion that Peter Pan was a vampire was the genesis for the story. In the first draft of the script, the character of David was originally named Peter, and other characters also had names from the Peter Pan story. In the final draft, many name changes were made, but originally the two brothers were Michael and John (which was later changed to Sam) and the mother's name was Wendy. The most obvious nod to the Pan story is the dog, Nanook, inspired by the character Nana the dog. The Grandfather character was never a part of the original story but later created in the draft by Jeffrey Boam
, who was hired to do the final rewrite.Joel Schumacher
hated that idea and told the producers he would only sign on if he could change them to teenagers, as he thought it would be much sexier and more interesting. See more
When Sam enters Michael's room after his first encounter with the Lost Boys, Sam opens the blinds to let light in. A second later, light starts pouring in from the bottom right corner of the screen from a mistimed light. See more
Well, now, let me put it this way. If all the corpses buried around here were to stand up all at once, we'd have one hell of a population problem.
