* RiseFromYourGrave: In order to prove to Buffy that vampires are real. Merrick takes her to the local cemetery and to a recently buried person, citing that the victim died of blood loss but no one was sure how, surmising a vampire got to him. Sure enough the victim pulls himself from her grave, now a vampire and hungry. If that wasn't bad enough, it turns out he wasn't the only recent victim as a female vampire likewise awakens right underneath Buffy and tries to grab her. And Merrick ''knew'' this.

** Amusingly, virtually the same line occurred in ''Film/HungerGames'' ("She shot an arrow, at your head!") -- and Donald Sutherland was in both scenes.

* ActionDressRip: Actually starts out with overtones of ComedicUnderwearExposure. Pike tries to keep Buffy from pursuing the vampires at the dance but tears her ball gown in the process, [[ShowSomeLeg exposing her legs]] and [[PantyShot petticoats]]. But Pike promptly makes up for his mistake by lending Buffy his [[HellBentForLeather large black leather jacket]] to cover herself. Voila, back to {{Badass}} mode!
* ActionGirl: The original intent of the film was to take a typical horror film's 'DumbBlonde' who either dies first or only survives because she's the hero's love interest, and make her the ChosenOne of Destiny, while the CoolLoser that she 'surprisingly' falls in love with, who would ordinarily become the BadAss ChosenOne, takes her place as the film's DamselInDistress.

Before the [[Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer series,]] there was this.

In 1992, Creator/JossWhedon wrote a script for a movie called ''Buffy The Vampire Slayer''. The plot should be very familiar to a lot of us: a ValleyGirl named Buffy finds out that she is TheChosenOne. An old British guy named Merrick trains her to become "the Slayer." Her job is to fight a bunch of vampires. Like the series it would later spawn, the ''Buffy'' movie was intended as a subversion of the usual "DamselInDistress" roles that young women usually fill in horror movies. 20th Century Fox picked it up and turned it into a movie.

* AccidentalMisnaming: Buffy's mother refers to her as "Bobby" sometimes. And Pike is mistakenly called "Polk" at one point.

When Buffy's mother mistakenly calls Buffy's boyfriend Jeffrey "Bobby," it's pointed out as an illustration of her lack of meaningful involvement in Buffy's life (see HandsOffParenting).

Five years later, we got the well-known series ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'', and the rest is history. The film itself occurred in BroadStrokes in the regular Buffyverse, but more specifically the original screenplay, not the released movie. Early on, the series made mention of Buffy being expelled from her old high school because she set the gym on fire (to kill the vampires inside), which was the original intended ending of the movie, but was vetoed by ExecutiveMeddling.

Though the film did have a hand in making it more recognizable since some people did remember the character from the movie.
