VAMPIRES! OK I doubt none of you are surprised to see my name attached to this. Vampires will ALWAYS come top with me, and whilst this isn't the movie that started it all (not even for mini me at that age), it is one that I would definitely consider one of the most influential. I remember seeing this right after it came out on VHS (we had tried and failed to see it at the movies - in England there was none of this get in with a parent stuff).
I had the poster on the wall, I hated "Star" with a passion that still holds today for stupid female characters making bad choices, oh and I 100% would have drunk the "wine", partied all night, and had fun as a vampire.
It was also my first introduction to Kiefer Sutherland which resulted in many other movies being watched that may never have hit my radar. Add to that the absolutely killer soundtrack that still gets played regularly in this house, and the vibes of an 80's movie that simply cannot be beaten, this is a MUST WATCH for all vampire lovers! NO EXCEPTIONS!

This year marks the 25th anniversary of “The Lost Boys”. Wait. 25 years? ::counts on fingers from 1987:: 35 years? That would make me…….older than dirt. Nevermind. Anyway. Moving right along. My obsession with vampire movies probably started right here. This is a time when they looked like rock stars. You could place a picture of David and his fanged friends in Metal Edge or Rip magazine and they would fit right in. It took me a long time to actually see it. I used to sneak peek the first 15 minutes on Pay Per View before I had to buy it— more than once— before finally getting a copy to rent in the local video store that the clerk held for me. The allure started right away. The look, the story, the 2 Coreys. This movie had it all. But the biggest twist was that this horror movie was incorporating humor. This is commonplace now but relatively new then. This is a true classic. A script was written for a sequel shortly afterward but that was never produced. A couple straight to DVD sequels came out years later but I haven’t watched them. I don’t want to tarnish the perfect image of the original. I want to keep it safe in the protective bubble, layered in blood so it won’t get popped.
