More Movie Taglines:
- Pert. Wholesome. Way Lethal.
- Sometimes it takes more than just good looks to kill.
- She knows a sucker when she sees one.
- Homework. Cheerleading practice. Killing vampires. No one said high school would be easy.
- Kimberly: Buffy? What's your sitch? You're acting like the thing from another tax bracket.
Merrick: None of the other girls ever gave me this much trouble. Buffy: And where are they now? Hello!
Nicole: You got a C-plus? I can't believe I cheated off of you. Buffy: Excuse me for not knowing about El Salvador, like I'm ever going to Spain anyway.
Pike: Buffy, you're the guy. You are the chosen guy. Buffy: Right. I'm the chosen one. And I choose to be shopping.
[after punching Merrick] Buffy: Oh, wow. I-I never hit anybody before. Merrick: Really? Well you did it perfectly. Buffy: I didn't even break a nail.
- Ben Affleck appears in one scene as a basketball player.
Seth Green, the only person in the movie to be in the spin-off show, was cut from the movie, but still appears on the video cover
Buffy's last name is never mentioned in the movie. Not until the release of the series was she referred to as Buffy Summers.
In the original version of the script, Merrick committed suicide to escape being turned into a vampire by Lothos, who wanted to know the Slayer's identity so he could dispatch with her.
The original script by Joss Whedon was heavily re-written to make the film "lighter". In the original script, Buffy burns down the school gym that the dance is being held in, in an effort to destroy the vampires. In the television series ("Buffy the Vampire Slayer" (1997)) this fact is referred to several times, as the series is seen as a spin-off of the original, unproduced screenplay rather than this film.
