Kids Playing Kids: The Lost Boys

The Trylon is playing Lost Boys on October 2-4th, and you know what that means: we're talking about the Coreys!

The plot unfolds something like this: Lucy and her two sons have moved to Santa Carla to live with her father. No one seems too happy about the situation except Lucy, who has started dating a hansom and wealthy local man. Unfortunately Lucy's oldest son is about to be turned into a vampire by the local hooligan vampires, and it looks like local vampire hunters Edgar and Alan Frog along with Lucy's youngest son will have to save the day.

Haim and Feldman: This was the beginning of the Coreys branding themselves as such, but this is also the best movie that the pair star in together.

Corey Feldman: By this point Feldman already had Goonies, Friday the 13th III, Gremlins, and Stand By Me under his belt, and right after this he would also have The Burb's.

Corey Haim: While researching things to write about Haim I read his entire Wikipedia page, and I have to say, if you want to read a tragic story about drug addiction and child stardom, it's worth reading. On a lighter note, I also discovered that the 1-800-C-O-R-E-Y line that Lisa Simpson calls obsessively in an early episode of the Simpsons was 100% real! (But also has a sad story attached. Seriously, just give his page a skim.)

A classic for a reason: Everyone's performances in this film are on point, and it's one of the few vampire movies that nails both the humor and the horror.

But don't take our word for it, catch one of the screening at the Trylon!
