October Horror Movie of the Month #18 - The Lost Boys

The Film: The Lost Boys
The Director: Joel Schumacher
The Cast: Jason Patric, Corey Haim, Corey Feldman, Keifer Sutherland
Release Date: July 31, 1987.

Do I really need to explain myself?  It's The Lost Boys, for cryin' out loud!

I suppose if I were to explain myself, I'd say that it's the '80s' most bombastic horror film, fitting the decade's persona perfectly.  (However, it's not the decade's best vampire flick...more on that at a later date.)  It's got the Coreys, it's got a young Jack Bauer, and the underrated Barnard Hughes delivering one of the best final lines in horror history.  It's got some iconic imagery, and I'm not just talking about the sweaty saxophone player.  I still believe too, man.
