The Lost Boys (1987) Monster Madness X day 13
October 13, 2016 at 4:14 am
I love this movie, but at some point it gets too “goonies”.
October 13, 2016 at 5:37 am
Nothing wrong with Goonies.
There were two direct-to-video sequels for The Lost Boys with Corey Feldman reprising his “tough guy” role. They’re really bad movies, but fun in a cheesy way. Not as good as the original, of course.

Me neither, but it was a change of pace. I elaborated much more on my initial post, but cinemassacre keeps glitching and not posting my things 🙁

Ya gotta remember to copy your post before hitting send. It’s happened to me too many times…

GOONIES what a great movie too …

Night of the Creeps! Tom Atkins ran the ’80s.
“I got good news and bad news, girls. The good news is your dates are here.”
“What’s the bad news?”
October 13, 2016 at 7:58 am
Ya Night of the creeps one of the most underrated movies of the 80s.
Tom Atkins. “When I found him I leveled off that shotgun right at his chest. Spanky guess what happened next?”
Chris “Should you be telling me this”
Tom “Close. I pulled the trigger”
BEst and funniest line in the movie. That whole conversation is incredible when he’s talking to him in the cop shop.
October 13, 2016 at 3:33 pm
Hahah, I clearly remember that scene in the precinct even though I saw it once. It’s Miller time!
October 14, 2016 at 3:09 am
Yeah, that scene was great. Sticks with you, as does his friend’s death sounds on that recording.
October 13, 2016 at 5:53 am
My favorite line of the movie is probably the final line of the movie, said by the grandpa.
October 13, 2016 at 7:59 am
Ya for sure. I wait through the whole movie every time just for it.
October 13, 2016 at 6:03 am
This was the movie that we watched in high school when the girls came over. Scary enough that they were scared but cute enough with the Cory’s so they would want to watch it…..
…. and can you beat DEATH BY STEREO????

The soundtrack on this movie is also awesome. Very surreal and totally 80’s awesomeness on the soundtrack.
October 13, 2016 at 7:55 am
This is one of my all-time fave films. Probably because I grew up with it. But the soundtrack, the setting, the cast – it’s all perfect, and this is the film that made me the vampire fan I am now. Thanks for getting to it in this perhaps last Monster Madness!

The third movie that came out a few years ago is actually pretty damn good too. Definitely the best Corey Feldman movie in a very long time. He pushes the “tough guy” voice to Batman levels, but it still has its charm.
October 13, 2016 at 7:16 pm
The only reason to watch those Lost Boys sequels is because of Corey Feldman. He’s sprouting off one-liners like he’s Bruce Campbell!
Speaking of which, James, I know you probably have these all in the bag already, but it would be great if you could review Ash vs. Evil Dead at some point in the future. 🙂

Great movie!! Other favorite Vampire movies:
From Dusk Till Dawn
Dracula 2000 (The ending is a great tie in)
John Carpenter’s Vampires

I did not realize this film had bill s Preston esquire in it!
October 13, 2016 at 8:51 pm
Totally agreed with James on that movie a classic of a long list of 80’s horror movie. Lost boy is a good movie my sisters was totally in love with Kiefer Sutherland and I just luv the movie for what it was and I still do.
October 13, 2016 at 8:56 pm
Oh yeah like other says the soundtrack was very good… scary but not too scary and great casting….
October 13, 2016 at 9:27 pm
As far as vampire movies go, this one was one of the most entertaining – a lot going on and it never drags.
Hope to see a Near Dark review, I still think it’s an underrated but quite remarkable vamp flick.
October 14, 2016 at 9:59 am
SLENDER THE ARRIVAL for James and Mike Mondays please.
October 14, 2016 at 10:21 pm
This is one of the few Monster Madness entrees that I have seen! 🙂 I must confess, that while this is a good movie, it doesn’t really have much incentive to have you come back and watch it. At least, not for me. It’s good for a Saturday night movie night with your friends, but that’s about it.

The movie was also filmed in Santa Cruz, CA, where I lived for 12 years! The comic book store is called Atlantis Fantasy World. That’s were I would go to get my comic books. The location in the movie is at the Santa Cruz Boardwalk, but it had to relocate after the massive Loma Prieta earthquake in 1989. If you’re ever in Santa Cruz, stop by Atlantis and say hi to Joe. He’s been the owner of the store since the ’70’s, and he’s a super friendly, very knowledge, all around good guy.

Near Dark also came out around the same time as this and is a pretty fun vampire movie as well. A little more badass though, but I love it and this movie as well.

Does Cinemassacre block people from posting? Every time I try to post something it doesn’t show up. I was just saying I think “Lost Boys” was a great film, but I think “Fright Night” was scarier.

I was very disappointed with the remake. I did think the Medusa scene in the new one was kind of cool, but the rest was trash. If you want a good recent movie about Greek mythology watch the Immortals. The Immortals is what the clash remake should have been. I would rather would reccomend Gods of Egypt over the Clash remake. I have no interest in seeing wrath of the titans.
October 23, 2016 at 1:29 am
Sorry, this was supposed to be for the clash of the titans,
