It's The Attack Of Eddie Munster!
on August 18, 2017
The Lost Boys is a piece of purely 80s moviemaking that holds up remarkably well. What the film does best it to project a sense of place, a feeling and a mood that envelopes the viewer into a small warped corner of a fictional California town. It also has what is arguably the best hairstyle choice by Kiefer Sutherland in his entire movie career. The real power of The Lost Boys is how completely in tune with itself it is. It never feels like any specific genre, instead it's more purely dedicated to the off kilter narrative. The Echo & The Bunnymen cover of the song 'People Are Strange' is really the soul of the movie in musical form, and tells you all you need to know about it.
