Exploring The Lost Boys (Video)

The Lost Boys is not only one of my favourite movies in general, but it’s my favourite vampire movie. Yes, I’ll take it over any of the Dracula movies (apologies to the Count). It’s the perfect combination of funny and scary, with the kind of charismatic (and slightly unhinged) vampires that draw you in against your better judgment. It’s no surprise that Joss Whedon took inspiration from it when he was coming up with Buffy. If you haven’t seen the Lost Boys, please do (but you can skip the comic books and sequels).

The Good Bad Flicks YouTube channel takes an in-depth look at the Lost Boys that’s well worth a watch (there are major spoilers, though– this one’s only for the fans and the compulsively curious). Give it a watch:

      1. So true. I think it was the first vampire movie I really connected with. The others I’d seen up until then, despite having some great aspects, didn’t really catch my imagination. I don’t know if this is the case, but it feels like The Lost Boys may have been the first to stray from the Dracula formula.

      2. Near Dark certainly strayed away from the Dracula formula, from what I’ve read about it (never seen it). I think The Hunger did too, but it’s been a long, long time.
