This Is The Best Vampire Movie Of All Time, According To Reddit Horror Fans – Looper

A victory forThe Lost Boysreally is a shocker. And that's no disrespect to the movie itself, which is a vampire classic full of all the sexy, stylish, unabashedly savage energy one should expect from such fare. It also boasts a handful of hilarious gags to go along with its more viscerally hair-raising moments. But when one considers the astounding legacy of vampire fiction in cinema,The Lost Boys steeped as it is in '80s ethos and teenage eros is not entirely in step with the genre's tried-and-true gothic staples.

Still, it's hard not to admireThe Lost Boys for its indulgences,particularly as the film (about a single mom moving her kids to the Pacific Northwest where they unexpectedly get involved with a pack of crazed vampire bikers) cleverly satirizes and subverts the trappings of one of history's most hedonistic decades. The Lost Boys' castalso happens to feature brilliant turns from era stars like Kiefer Sutherland, Jason Patric, Dianne Wiest, Corey Haim, and that totally shredded dude playing the sax during the film's carnival scene.

And in spite of its unabashedly '80s-forever aesthetic via clothes, cars, hair, music, et. al.The Lost Boys somehow manages to not feel entirely dated, with Joel Schumacher imbuing the film with style, energy, and themes that transcend the times. Does that meanThe Lost Boys really is the best vampire movie ever made? No. Nor is it especially important in terms of its artistic impact on cinema. But it's a hell of a lot of fun, delivering a singular sense of cinematic cool and continuing to grow in popularity decades after its release. All of this is apparently enough for it to claim the No. 1 spot.
