The Lost Boys
Sleep all day. Party all night. Never grow old. Never die. It's fun to be a vampire. And boy oh boy is there a lot to unpack with this beloved 1987 horror/comedy: the hugely influential additions it made to modern vampire lore, its incredible soundtrack, the first on-screen pairing of The Two Coreys, that greased up sax player, an inexplicable Rob Lowe poster... the list goes on.
Since Chris & Donna don't have as much experience battling the undead, they brought in two experts to help them out - Kristen & Mike from The Sunnydale Stacks: A Buffy Podcast! Together they examine which aspects of the film have stood the test of time, which ones haven't, and then make some guesses as to why The Lost Boys continues to resonate so strongly with so many people.
Topics include: the way Joel Schumacher was regarded pre-Batman Forever, the straight-to-DVD sequels, some mixed opinions about the way the song Cry Little Sister is incorporated into the film, conflicting endgames from two of the villains, the film's undeniable influence on Buffy the Vampire Slayer and other modern vampire stories, deleted scenes, alternate endings, and much much more!
