Classic Trailer Flashback – “The Lost Boys” (1987)
I was a teenager during the 1980s and even then movies were a big part of my life. On July 31, 1987 a witty little horror picture from director Joel Schumacher hit theaters. It was “The Lost Boys”. It featured a fantastic blend of horror, humor, great songs and style. And then there was they cast featuring an assortment of young 80s talent. The trailer highlighted all of these elements and did its job of making this a must-see for me. Over the years I’ve come to appreciate it for a number of things it does well, but at the time I remember thinking “vampires, cool music, and Jamie Gertz”. That was enough for me.
So, do you remember the trailer for “The Lost Boys”? What do you think?
