1. THE CAST
Kiefer Sutherland (David- his sexiest role ever in my opinion), The Coreys (Haim and Feldman, playing Sam and Edgar Frog Respectively), Jason Patric (as Michael, Mmmmmm…), Jami Gertz (Star), Jamison Newlander (Alan Frog), Edward Herrman (Max, but he also played Herman Munster in the Munsters), Barnard Hughes (Grandpa), Dianne Wiest (Lucy, aka Mom), Brooke McCarter (Paul), Billy Wirth (Dwayne), and Alex Winter (Marko)
2. THE FASHION
Need I say more?
3. THE MUSIC
I can’t watch this movie without closing my eyes and singing “Cry Little Sister” at the top of my lungs. You know what though, screw it. The whole damn soundtrack is amazing. Here’s some more proof:
Off subject: has anybody else watched the video for M83’s “Midnight City” and thought, This weirdly reminds me of Lost Boys?
4. THE 80’s, WHEN VAMPIRES WERE STILL COOL
They’d rip poor sparkly Edward to pieces.
5. THE CARNAGE AND WEAPONS
Every vampire dies a different way: Explosions, dissolving, still looking pretty when they go. You just never know what you’re gonna get! Like a box of chocolates… or severed fingers. Whatever.
As far as weapons go, the Frog Brothers have it: Crossbows… Holy Water… You name it, they got it. And speaking of the Frog Brothers…
6. THE FROG BROTHERS
I think I know what my husband and I are going as for Halloween this year.
7. THE LOCATION
Between a half-cave sunken hotel for a lair, and the boardwalk where the vampires hunt, these locations are pretty much badass all around. I’d hate to live in this world (I mean, I don’t have a death wish), but it’s fun for a short visit.
8. ONE WORD… TAXIDERMY
Grandpa has some of the creepiest stuffed critters in the west. Some of them are great for impaling evil vampires. Yikes.
9. PETER PAN IS COOL
Did you know the whole idea for this movie was based on the idea that Peter Pan was a vampire and that was why he never grew up? They even planned on keeping names from the story, they kept Michael. Yeah. Knowledge is awesome.
10. And because I always have something pervy to say, there’s some SEXY, SEXY, SEX
Get it, boyeeeeeee.
