Quotes:

  • Grandpa: Second shelf is mine. That's where I keep my rootbeers and my double-thick Oreo cookies. Nobody touches the second shelf but me.
     
  • David: What, you don't like rice? Tell me Michael, how could a billion Chinese people be wrong?
     
  • David: How are those maggots?
    Michael: Huh?
    David: Maggots, Michael. You're eating maggots. How do they taste?
     
  • Grandpa: If you read the T.V. Guide, you don't need a T.V.
     
  • David: It is too late, my blood is in your veins.
    Michael: So is mine!
     

Trivia:

  • The title of the film is a reference to the companions of Peter Pan, who remained forever young.
     
  • The movie was originally written as a bunch of "Goonie-type 5th-6th grade kid vampires". Joel Schumacher liked the title but hated the concept, so he changed it.
     
  • Both Corey Feldman, who plays Edgar Frog, and Barnard Hughes, who plays Grandpa, share the same birthday, July 16th.
     
  • David is impaled on a pair of antlers and doesn't disintegrate like the other vampires. Despite what Max later says, he is not really dead. This was intended to be picked up in the sequel, which was scripted but never made.
     
  • Although the movie is clearly set in Santa Cruz, Ca (the Boardwalk and Pier are featured in several scenes) the city name given in the film is the-as far as I know-fictional Santa Carla. Apparently the Santa Cruz chamber of commerce was not keen on reviving the "Murder capital" moniker, which had been hung on Santa Cruz during a serial killer's rampage in the 70s.
