Look at your reflection in the mirror. You’re a creature of the night Michael, just like out of a comic book! You’re a vampire Michael! My own brother, a goddamn, shit-sucking vampire. You wait ’till mum finds out, buddy!
Sam Emerson (Corey Haim) in the 80s vampire teen classic ‘The Lost Boys’ (1987)
Wow, I haven’t seen that in forever. Need to remedy that 🙂
You know, there was a sequel too…
Definitely need a re-watch of this one though – haven’t seen it in ages either.
From all accounts it was dreadful.
Hmmm…suspected so. I’ll stick to the original – it has nostalgic value too.
I really do love it. The 80s really were awesome for that type of movie.
Made me want to rewatch this. 🙂
I’ve only seen it the once. Two Coreys in one film haha.
One of my favourite childhood films!
Did it make you want to be a vampire?
I went back and rewatched that movie, somewhat recently. I couldn’t believe I ever liked it.
So. Not good.
I’ve only seen it once and enjoyed it. I’m not sure how I’d feel if I saw it again.
It is cheesy. And poorly acted. And narratively dumb.
I doubt you’d like it.
I recently gave my five favourite 70s movies. I should have a think what my favourite 80s movies.
I missed the ’70s one, right? I’ll see if I can dig it up when I get home.
I think it was attached to someone else’s post actually. I think it was Jaws, Dirty Harry, Annie Hall and both Godfathers.
Not bad choices. I would personally drop the first Godfather for Caberet, but I acknowledge Coppola’s flick is really good. (And I haven’t actually seen Annie Hall, so I got nothing.)
As soon as I saw it, I started to write a play. Such a funny and wonderfully written film. I thought Dirty Harry would be the one you would take out.
I could probably think of many ’70s films I LIKE more. But that’s just personal preference; I generally don’t go in for Westerns. I can’t deny, though, that for it WANTS to be, it’s pretty close to flawless (at least as far as I remember from my single viewing many years ago). I thusly have no issue with anyone picking it as one of their most beloveds.
I guess I don’t see it as a western, even if it does lead to the shootout at the end, I mean even the opening music is so modern sounding and it is set in San Francisco. Talking of westerns, I do love The Searchers.
You have a point on Dirty Harry. Still felt like a western to me, though. 🙂
The Searchers is excellent (I even gave that one an A). I also love Butch and Sundance.
