People are Strange when you’re a Vampire

The Lost Boys is one of my personal favorites in the horror genre. It’s about a family who move to Santa Carla, California only to discover that things are a little strange there. Vampires inhabit this town. Teen vampires to be exact (and I ain’t talkin’ Twilight). The title, The Lost Boys is of course a reference to Peter Pan (that’s what I thought the movie was about originally). Like the lost boys in Peter Pan, these young vampires also never grow up. It would best be described as a starter horror movie. My mom recommended it to me when I was still kind of young. She said my brother and I would like the fact that kids are the ones who fight the vampires. Sam and his new friends Edgar and Allen (played by both Corey’s) attempt to take down the head vampire which includes Sam’s brother Michael. The violence isn’t too disturbing, nor is it too silly. It’s just the right balance of both. They manage to find the humor in contrast to some of their bloodier scenes. It’s also a good movie for vampire enthusiasts. As the group of kids who attempt to take down said vampires, use what they know from comic books. I know just about everything there is to know about vampires and their weaknesses. So I’d like to think I could take one down if I had to. The Lost Boys is just the right kind of vampire movie for me to sink my teeth into.
