31 Nights of Horror VII, Night 19: The Lost Boys

More than 3 sentence review:

I don’t love vampire movies. I’ve always felt like vampires are easy to fight and kill (a sharp piece of wood, holy water and garlic is all it takes?) I also don’t always enjoy the super erotic undertones (overtones?) that often dominate the vampire narrative. Plus, you don’t even have to invite them into your home. Boom! Vampires avoided.

The Lost Boys is DEFINITELY an exception to my possibly unfair characterization of toothy night dwellers. Who doesn’t want Kiefer Sutherland and the gang’s entire wardrobe? Show me a person who says they don’t love the soundtrack and I’ll show you a liar. You get not one but BOTH Coreys. And Richard muh fuggjn Gilmore is the head vampire (aka the late, great Edward Hermann). Without a doubt it’s my favorite vampire film. A perfect blend of 80s campiness, true horror, and stylish teenage vampires.
