One of my fellow DarkSiders, Megg Jensen reflects in the following guest post on her Lost Boys experiences:
Vampire Obsessions & TwiMoms & The Lost Boys
You saw the photos of the TwiMoms screaming and yelling outside theaters, drooling for a chance to see Twilight. Everyone was horrified - who are these crazy women? Aren’t they too old to act this way?
Let’s rewind for a second. Back in the ‘80s, when most of us TwiMoms were just little kids, we had our own vampires. Stephenie Meyer didn’t create them, she only enhanced our memories of the vamps we loved as kids.
Take The Lost Boys, for example. What’s hotter than Jason Patric or Kiefer Sutherland sporting some pointy fangs? Nothing, I assure you. Everything these girls today feel for Edward was how we felt about Michael and David!!!
I recently had the chance to see The Lost Boys in the theater again when Corey Feldman came to town promoting his new projects. It was amazing to see it on the big screen and I felt like a young girl again. So, yeah, I love vampires, but it’s nothing new - and I hope the trend never ends!
