80s Wednesday

Well, since I'm working on something vampiric... here's today's pick:

Wikipedia states: The Lost Boys is a 1987 American comedy/horror film about young Californians who must fight a gang of teenage vampires. It stars Jason Patric, Corey Haim, Kiefer Sutherland, Jami Gertz, Corey Feldman, Dianne Wiest, Edward Herrmann, Alex Winter, and Barnard Hughes.

Well... what can I say about this movie? As soon as I saw the trailer for it, I was hanging to watch it but had to wait for the video release. And when that came out! Gee, I watched it for the first time with amazement. Everything about it suckered me in from the beginning. I loved it soooooo much I'd watch it almost every single day after school! I drove my family nuts with it.

But I just couldn't get enough. This movie is awesome and totally responsible for my obsession with anything vampire. It inspired me to write my first novel in my teens about a vampire, of course! :) And since then, well, I still hold this movie dear to my heart. It was a fun ride, with a bunch of cute actors, cool music and VAMPIRES! Vampires, people! And has anyone seen Jason Patric look better than he did in this movie? I don't think so...

Anyway, THE LOST BOYS had a huge impact on my life and is one of my favourite movies of all time!
