As the wife of the Board Walk security guard posts her missing persons poster, another poster is visible which advertises an event at the Santa Cruz County Fair Grounds. For the film, Santa Cruz was renamed Santa Carla to avoid associations with the city and the film's gang-related themes. See more »
One thing about living in Santa Carla I never could stomach; all the damn vampires.

This movie to me is more of a comedy than a horror. The scenes I remember most are the funny ones. Not to say it is a pure comedy, it isn't. It is though a very good vampire tale. The cast is superb, even Corey Haim and Feldman. This is definitely the best movie they did together. This one has a family of three (a mother and two sons) moving into her dad's home. They go around town and the younger one hears from some comic book workers that there are vampires in town. The older son is in fact being recruited by said vampires and is already becoming one after drinking a strange liquid. All in all I love this film and it is one of my favorite vampire flicks. Good mixture of action, horror, and especially for me...comedy. This movie is so very well made that you will find it hard to believe that the director of this would go on to make the pretty bad "Batman and Robin". This movie though is good, and has one of the best ending lines of any movie.
