The Original Title for the film is "I was a Teenage Vampire". Have you ever noticed how at the begining of the film the "My best friend is a vampire" title doesn't quite match the credits... Because it was originally just plain red writing like the rest of the opening credits. Also, the song at the beginning "Heartbeat getting stronger" wasn't the original song (it was originally somewhere else in the film... Hence its mention in the end credits). Basically, I think the title and opening song were just changed for video to jazz it up a bit. Why do I know all this?... Because when it was played on satelite TV here, in the UK, years ago, they played the "Cinema Version" with the slow opening song and original title, not as good as "Heartbeat getting stronger", but different.

About a week ago, a neighbor of ours told us that the house we've owned and lived in for the past 10 years was used as one of the sets for this movie. So of course, we had to get a copy of the film and check it out. Sure enough, our house appears as the setting for all of the kitchen and family scenes in Jeremy's home. His bedroom scenes and the exterior scenes were filmed somewhere else, but the kitchen and living room scenes were unquestionably our house. Our address is on Milford in the "Museum District" of Houston (near Rice University), which is where a lot of the filming appears to have been done.

But, nothing bogus that we know yet for "My Best Friend is a Vampire".
