Mina Harker Should Have Her Own ‘Dracula’ Adaptation

Death by Stereo: Innocence Lost in ‘The Lost Boys’

The vampire teens

‘The Lost Boys’ is a classic 1980s vampire flick directed by Joel Schumacher. It is as famous for its soundtrack as it is for its content. The entire film in fact is exemplified in its main theme–“Cry Little Sister,” by G Tom Mac–from the typical horror themed sections to its classic 80s rock moments down to its choral moments. These sections sum up the film almost perfectly.
