I am proud to be of the "Lost Boys" generation.
Last night my husband and I watched The Lost Boys-again. Perhaps it’s just nostalgia, or the two Corey’s and a young Kiefer Sutherland…but I LOVE this movie!
There have been great vampire movies since I have enjoyed, Interview with a Vampire, Blade and Underworld series, Van Helsing, Buffy, (tv show) and I’m sure I ‘m forgetting some. Oh yes, of course, Twilight, which brings me to my point. There will never be another Lost Boys. (They tried, and the sequel was oh-so-horrible). It seems to me The Lost Boys sums up an era, a generation, and those of us from that generation know we are unique, for so many reasons. I suppose every generation feels that way, but I can’t help look at "The Lost Boys" with pride, knowing I am a product of t hat time in the world.
The sound track especially tugs at my heart, bringing back memories of when I was…well, I won’t say how old….but it brings back great feelings. When my husband and I first moved in together as boyfriend and girlfriend (in sin, yes) we both had copies of the Lost Boys soundtrack and knew we’d made the right choice to be together!
And can I just say how amazing Jami Gertz still looks after all this time. Whatever she is doing/using, I want to know!
I even reference the Lost Boys in my novel. (still in editing) My main character meets a group of four strangers that remind her of the Lost Boys, including their leader, who, until she finds out his real name, to herself she calls "Kiefer".
Cheers to those of you from The Lost Boys generation and those of you who are not-go out and find this movie!!
