31 Days of Halloween: Day #20, The Lost Boys

Welcome to the 31 Days of Halloween in Movies.

What it is, and what’s happening, lovely people, and Happy Halloween! It’s the perfect quintessential fall day around these parts.  It’s gloomy out, the weather is chilly, I’m headed to a library book sale. I’m getting a coffee, and (if time allows) I’m headed to my garden center for a few small pumpkins.  It’s everything on my Fall bingo.  🧟‍♀️

Today is day 20 in the 31 Days of Halloween: Movie Edition. 🍂💀🎃 Thank you so much for checking out this post today, and so it goes.

SYNOPSIS: Teenage brothers Michael (Jason Patric) and Sam (Corey Haim) move with their mother (Dianne Wiest) to a small town in northern California. While the younger Sam meets a pair of kindred spirits in geeky comic-book nerds Edward (Corey Feldman) and Alan (Jamison Newlander), the angst-ridden Michael soon falls for Star (Jami Gertz) — who turns out to be in thrall to David (Kiefer Sutherland), leader of a local gang of vampires. Sam and his new friends must save Michael and Star from the undead.

MY RATING: (★★★★★)  I think I’ve seen this move more than 50 times.  Killer soundtrack, and once you add in Corey Him, Corey Feldman, Jason Patric, Kiefer Sutherland, and Jami Gertz (popular in their time) it was the best movie to see in the late 80s. As far a gore and violence (I mean…) it’s a movie about vampires so it’s just as much as you expect, but there is one thing missing that’s very obvious and that blood (or fake blood). What passed for blood in this movie was slimy and glittery.  So not soft like Twilight, and not as violent as 30 Days of Night but a bit in between.

With that said … Happy Viewing and enjoy the movie!
