  • Meet Darren. He's sixteen going on immortal.
Movie Quote(s):
  • Darren Shan: [From Trailer] So do I turn into a bat Larten Crepsley: NO! NO! That is Bullshit.
  • Evra the Snake Boy: [Embarrassed after shaking Darren's hand and leaving some skin behind] Sorry about that, shedding. Itches like crazy. Darren Shan: [slightly disturbed] ... right... Evra the Snake Boy: [scratches head sheepishly] Better go wash that, before you get pink eye...
  • Larten Crepsley: Vampires don't need cellphones.
  • Madame Truska: You don't love me anymore... Its my beard.
  • Larten Crepsley: Your mouth says no, but your beard says yes.
Movie Trivia:
  • Students who attended a school in which a few scenes of the movie were shot were cast as extras.
  • A portion of the film was shot in Studio 28 at Universal Studios in Los Angeles. It is the oldest known sound stage in the history of the studio.
  • Some of the characters required a great deal of prosthetics and makeup. Prosthetics did not quite add the height needed on certain shots for the character of Mr. Tall played by Ken Watanabe. Although Watanabe's height of 6ft is tall a body double was cast for certain shots. Trevon Flores, a local basketball player, stands at 6-foot-10, 210-pounds and was used for certain shots to show the abnormal height of Mr. Tall. Additionally Watanabe utilized in pre-production and production, dialogue coaches Kathleen S. Dunn and Francie Brown respectfully to further enhance his performance as the circus barker.
  • This is the first time Paul Weitz makes a film without help from his brother Chris Weitz
  • What drew John C. Reilly to play Larten Crepsley was "the fact that it was a real person, that he wasn't some supernatural mystical being that can turn into a vampire bat. The powers weren't so extreme that it was just another thing altogether, that this guy was a person who was alive in the 1800s who was essentially about my age. If you account the slow aging, he is forty something years old" he said.
