The Lost Boys
« on: February 08, 2007, 10:27:08 AM »
Yeah, yeah. We all dug that movie when we were in high school. But...

  • It's a Joel Schumacher film.
  • Not one, but two Coreys. The first of many high-quality Corey collaborations to come.
  • Ummmmm, any reason why Corey Haim has a beefcake poster of Rob Lowe on his bedroom wall?
  • It's Peter Pan with fangs. True fact:Keifer Sutherland's character was originally to be named Peter. And Jami Gertz charcter was supposed to be named Wendy. (The two brothers are still named John and Michael.) But the filmmakers thought that was pushing the Peter Pan angle too much and changed their names to Star and David. Waitaminnit. Star? David? I just got that! **
  • Anybody in this movie that Julia Roberts wasn't engaged to at some time or another?
  • Bill S Preston, vampire.
  • Dianne Weist as you've never seen her before: a frustrated single mother
  • Because there can never be enough "80's big hair" jokes
  • That unforgettable scene where...I'm sorry, I can't get past this. Why does the Corey Haim character have a beefcake poster of Rob Lowe on his bedroom wall?

Major drawback: Jack Bauer can decapitate Mike Nelson with a toenail clipping.

** Update: I double checked with the imdb on this. The brother's names were Sam and Michael. Not John. And while the trivia page acknowledges the movie is a riff on Peter Pan, it says nothing about the characters' original names being Wendy and Peter. But I know I heard that somewhere.

Yeah, this could definitely make for a good track.  I'm sure that there could be a plethora of Feldman jokes, but I'd be looking more forward to the sublter Haim humor.

Rifftrax has done its share of 80s classics, and The Lost Boys would make a fine addition to that list!!

I say GO FOR IT, MIKE!!

I don't disagree, but I think if you do a Schumacher film, there should be a REALLY GAY guest riffer. Mario Cantone, maybe....

God...if only My Best Friend is a Vampire was on DVD.

On the other hand, if we're embarking on a vampire kick, how about Fright Night?

Awwww...man, I loved that movie. That and The Monster Squad were probably my favourite films growing up. I remember desperately wanting to see it then stumbling into a secondhand bookstore and there it was (on VHS)!

It was only then I realised that Rene Auberjonois was in it, which makes it even cooler.

How about A Polish Vampire In Burbank?

What are you, crazy? The score for Scarface was excellent!

Read what Raoul wrote. He said he preferred the score OVER the soundtrack.

It should finally be getting a DVD release this year! It was pencilled in for a couple of months from now but it's be pushed back.

However, August 17th will be exactly 20 years since it was first screened so that's publicity they'd be silly to miss. Until then I'll hang on to my HDTV rip  ;D
