    The Lost Boys Haven't Lost Their Bite

    My roommate has a theory about what makes a good movie. He thinks that if a movie's opening sequence involves water the movie will be good. In this instant he is dead on in his thinking.


    This is one of the best movies of the 1980s (1987) and one of the best vampire movies of all time. It has everything a perfect 80s movie needs.


    The soundtrack is dead on and used effectively. The theme song of the movie seems to be "Cry Little Sister" (youtube video) and is used throughout the movie. Different snippets of the song are used to frame certain frames and seems to capture the essence of those particular scenes.


    The cast is spectacular. Jason Patric, Diane Wiest, Edward Herrmann, Kiefer Sutherland, Corey Feldman, and Corey Haim all star in the movie. You can't get better than having both Coreys in a movie, well maybe if you added Rob Lowe in at the time. Speaking of Rob Lowe I always wondered why Sam (Corey Haim) has a poster of Rob Lowe pulling his shirt up on his closet door. I wonder what was being implied back then.


    Jason Patric and Corey Haim play the sons of Diane Wiest who moves back in with her father after a divorce she didn't feel like fighting. Once their the boys meet new friends and start to have fun. In Michael's case (Jason Patric) he meets a beautiful girl who is otherwise engaged and is brought into the gang by it's leader David (Kiefer Sutherland). Sam meets the Frog brothers (one of who is Corey Feldman) at a comic book store and the quickly bond (which may be to strong of a word) over vampire comics.


    Little does Michael know that his new friends are trying to initiate him into a gang of vampires controlled by some unknown individual. Once Sam discovers what is happening he calls in the Frog brothers for help and chaos reigns for the rest of the movie.


    For anyone who enjoys a wonderfully written, strong vampire movie I strongly encourage you to watch it.

    Let your vampire spirit soar!

    If there were ever a movie that made you want to file your teeth into fangs, sink them into a small, woodland creature or human, and then celebrate by driving around town on a dirtbike like Hulk Hogan...it's Lost Boys! This coming of age film made me realize that I don't believe in God or religion and probably speed limits for that matter. This best part of this movie is when they are all shooting up wiggly-wire and burning each other with tiki-torches. I had no idea that a handle-bar mustache was a vampire repelent until I watched this film. My nose was really itchy during this movie.
