The Plot Of “The Lost Boys” As Relayed By Me To Me In My Diary On April 28th, 1988
Today I saw a WICKED cool movie called “The Lost Boys.” It was a horror/comedy flick on a gang of modern teen-age vampires who are terrorizing the town of Santa Monica, CA. They try to bring a normal teen into the gang. They make him a half-vampire but you’re not a full vampire until you make your first kill. A girl, Star, and a little boy, Lenny, are also 1/2 vampires.
Well, Michael’s (the 1/2 vampire) brother Sam realized what’s happened an calls on the Frog brothers (Edgar + Allen), 2 brothers dedicated to wiping out vamps. Well, after a series of events, Edgar, Allen, and Sam grossly kill “all” the vamps. But, Michael and Star (who are now lovers) realize they’re still 1/2 vamps. The last vamp turns out to be the seemingly normal man Sam + Michael’s mom is dating!
Well, there is the usual huge, snarling fight as Michael tries to kill the man. But, he knocks Michael out. Just as he is about to bite the mom’s neck, the grandfather whom Mom, Sam, + Michael are living with drives through the wall, sending a stake through the man’s heart. (The stake was attached to the car’s hood.) The spell is broken. Mom, Sam, Michael, Star, Lenny, Edgar and Allen cheer, hug, and scream. Gramps goes to the fridge, calmly takes a root beer. “That’s the thing about Santa Monica. All the damn vampires!”
It was real cool!
