For the hell of it I recorded The Lost Boys off telly and watching it now while surfing. omg the Mullets are ARSEome! I've never seen so much frosted permed hair. It's outstanding and there's this scene where they're watching some dude, clearly meant to be hard and macho, dancing around in tight spandex with his magnificent mullet, chains around his neck and his big buff oiled
Straight guys in audience grooving away to it like it's not the gayest thing ever. hahaha
What's upsetting is I actually lived through the time when that was the norm.
Not so much the oiled guys in spandex but certainly the hair and the bad fashion. It's weird to see Keifer looking so fresh faced, but still reassuringly sleazy.
Scratch what I said earlier, it's unashamedly cheesy and this is its strength. I seem to recall the vampires were actually considered menacing at the time
. The soundtrack is fun and has aged surprisingly well.
