The Rewind Movie Podcast
The Lost Boys (1987) - Episode 96
You better get yourself a garlic T-shirt buddy, otherwise it’s your funeral. Our 2nd seasonal selection for this Halloween is Joel Schumacher’s stylish 1987 teen vampire classic The Lost Boys.
Brothers Michael (Jason Patric) and Sam (Corey Haim) move with their mother (Dianne Wiest) to the small northern California town of Santa Carla, where all may not be all it appears. While Sam geeks out with local comic book nerds, Edgar and Alan Frog (Corey Feldman and Jamison Newlander) and gets the lowdown on the undead shenanigans they feel are all around them, Michael is drawn into the sphere of the darkly charismatic David (Kiefer Sutherland) and his gang of punk ruffians, joining them in dangerous initiation rites that start to effect terrifying changes on him.
Did it stiff us, or was it pretty cool for a fashion victim? Were we at the mercy of our sex glands, or were we sniffing old newsprint?
Gali and Matt dig into their takeaway cartons of worm-noodles and maggot-rice, and stay out way past their bedtimes for this sultry, subversive, coming-of-age horror-adventure staple. Drink some of this and be one of us on The Rewind Movie Podcast.
