Is "The Lost Boys" worth seeing?

Interesting article on it in the Guardian today.

I've never seen it because I don;t care for the Coreys and because it seemed to be too much about showcasing fluffy 80s hairstyles. But I could be wrong.

Yes, best of its genre. Fantastic movie and now I am going to google where I can stream it.

Just for Jason Patric who acts as if he's in a different film.

Worth it for the hot men. Kiefer and Jason act as if they're down to fuck.

Worth seeing! Hell yes! Watch it. Forget that's it's 2024 and watch.it! Pronto!

Yes, watch it at night. The soundtrack is a total vibe.

Yes, it's a great popcorn movie.

One of my most beloved childhood films.

The vampires are a metaphor tempting Jason's character into the gay lifestyle.

by Anonymousreply 13April 2, 2024 1:24 AM

Jason is gorgeous, Kiefer is sexual charisma personified and the rest of the cast is having a ball.

Funny, sexy, occasionally scary movie.

No. Shitty 1980s film. Shit director. Ugly actors excluding the Jim Morrison look a like.

Fantastic film. Watch with the lights off, pmeanty of popcorn…and lube.

Jason's brother Joshua Miller also played a vampire in that other 80s classic Near Dark.

This is the kind of movie I have to be in the mood for, and likely stoned. It's camp, but I never saw it as a kid, so I don't have as much appreciation for it as other fans.

by Anonymousreply 21April 2, 2024 2:11 AM

The movie is 37 years old, OP. If you haven't seen it by now, then you never will.

by Anonymousreply 22April 2, 2024 5:00 AM

If just for the song at the closing credits. Perfect.

by Anonymousreply 23April 2, 2024 8:14 AM

Patric looks like Jim Morrison I agree. He is plain to me. Kiefer is so hot in it though. Has Kiefer ever appeared nude in a film? His dad is even more attractive. I don’t like prettyness

by Anonymousreply 24April 2, 2024 9:13 AM

Kiefer has shown his ass .I don't know if he's done full frontal.

The scene where the vampires are sleeping upside down is ridiculous as they all have their very 80s heavy metal hair hanging down looking dumb.

by Anonymousreply 29April 2, 2024 9:40 PM

Since vampires can't see their reflection how did they style those 80s 'dos?

KINDA? Sam is a little babygay.

There's a lot of queer coding in the movie (David only seems to keep Star around as a honeypot, and makes a comment about how his blood is in Michael's veins), but I don't even think they're trying to be subtle about Sam being gay.

Frankly, the only non-explicitly-gay horror movie that I would even argue is gayer is Scream, partially because of how empowered the women are, and partly because Billy and Stu are clearly fucking.

I always thought that Corey Haim (RIP) came across as gay. Even in the movie BLOWN AWAY, where he played a teen lothario who gets hooked up with teen Lolita Nicole Eggert, he seemed a bit femme.

Haim was bisexual with a preference for men, apparently.
