DIRECTOR TRADEMARK (John Landis): (See You Next Wednesday): Advertised on the marquee across the street from the Melody Lounge exotic dance bar. The car crash at the Shadyside gas station scene was filmed in Squirrel Hill, and the nearby multiplex cinema changed its marquee to be "See You Next Wednesday" every night after closing. The movie itself featured no footage of that theater (or the street it's on), although it's possible that it was edited out. See more »
When Manny (in hospital) dies and becomes a vampire, his heart briefly stops, causing the EKG to sound an alarm before it starts beating again. He then wakes up and detaches the EKG leads, which ought to trigger another alarm but does not. See more »
I thought this was just supposed to be a sit-down.
Yeah, but somebody ain't getting up.

The 2016 DVD edition in Spain edited by "Llamentol" miss a couple of shots:
When Manny throws the doctor to the wall in the hospital sequence.
In Macelli's last monologue the line "I am the light! I am Macelli!". Also the movie is presented in "open matte" with 1.33:1 aspect ratio.
The story, actors and the limited special effect use all combine to make a great movie. Anne Parillard was perfect in her role as the French Vampire, Anthony LaPaglia is a great foil for Parillard. Robert Loggia as the Mafia Don almost stole the whole movie but the best character honors went to Don Rickles who played Loggia's legal mouth piece. The cinematography is first rate, the blending of the score and action is very smooth. Setting the time of the movie during Chrismas adds to the mix. I watch An American Werewolf in London then Innocent Blood followed by An American Werewolf in Paris every Holloween Eve. Holloween day I watch Dawn of the Dead and Day of Trifids. What can I say, I love horror movies.
