* WhatTheHellIsThatAccent: Peter's weird high-class accent seems to soften depending on who he's talking to. The best comparison is that it sounds like a mix of [[Film/BillAndTed Ted Theodore Logan]] and [[Film/AmericanPsycho Patrick Bateman]]. [[http://366weirdmovies.com/list-candidate-vampires-kiss-1988/ One review]] even described it as a "from-nowhere accent".

Nicolas Cage has said it was a deliberate acting choice - the accent is meant to be entirely put-on by the character, and is at its strongest in scenes where Peter is trying to impress people with how smart and sophisticated he is.

* ColdHam: In the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Fvpyo2WuVY scene]] which [[MemeticMutation inspired]] the "You don't say?" image macro, Cage has a manic look in his eyes and starts to speak a little emphatically, but he never raises his voice over a stage whisper, until the very last line.

* [[TrailersAlwaysLie Posters Always Lie]]: Despite what the various posters might indicate, this is ''NOT'' a romantic comedy, but a somewhat disturbing psychological thriller in the vein of ''AmericanPsycho''.

''Vampire's Kiss'' is a 1989 film starring NicolasCage in what could quite possibly be his craziest performance in a career full of crazy performances.

** According to [[WordOfGod the Director]], the version used in the film is actually the first take, and he was happy with it when he shot it. He was just pissed at Cage about something, so he made him eat two more cockroaches.
