- of the 80 and 90s?

- of all time?

Honestly, I think it's my favorite of all time. Keefer Sutherland's best work, for sure. This is the vampire film that rings truest to me. It must surely have been a major influence on Joss Whedon's vision for the Buffy universe.

If you want medieval vampires still neck-biting, then a Dracula film is probably your jam. If you want vampires as gods, then Queen of the Damned may do it for you. But if you want vampires as they might actually exist in a place like Central Park, then it's Lost Boys all the way.

Agree? Disagree?

Another really good vampire movie from this time period is Near Dark. It was released about 2 months after Lost Boys, and I think this is why it did so poorly, although it's not nearly as "fun" as Lost Boys. It's a neo-western/biker movie with vampires, starring Aliens alums Paxton and Henriksen as two of the vamp clan bikers. The hero is Adrian Pasdar, who did the voice of Iron Man in some cartoons and was most recently Graviton on Agents of SHIELD. It got great reviews, but the people had seemingly lost interest in vamps by then.

Also had good music by Tangerine Dream, if you're into that kind of dark synth stuff.

City of Heroes is BACK!
