I was in my early 30’s before I finally got around to watching The Lost Boys and it was my wife who pushed me into giving the movie a watch. It looked like one of those really cheesy 80’s horror movies that would end up being completely dated and not a lot of fun. I was partially right as it did look like something from the 80’s but I was wrong about it not being fun because The Lost Boys is a completely over the top fun vampire movie that I think holds up quite well, despite it looking a bit dated at this point.
If you can get around the saxophone beach party, some of the cheesy dialogue and some of the angsty teen stuff the movie has a lot to offer including the way they show vampire flight, some great humor from the Frog Brothers and a great cast.
There is a lot to like within the movie and a lot of things hidden under the surface that you might not know about and CineFix has compiled a list of seven facts about this 80’s vampire thriller that you may not have known.
