Lest we forget: The Lost Boys introduced us to the sexy, pack-hunting vampire, thanks to Jeffrey Boam, one of three screen writers on this film. As fast-rewind.com reminds us, before TLB we had, in mainstream cinema, a million Christopher Lee Draculas, hanging out in drafty castles waiting for the right large bosomed woman to happen along with a compelling ucipital mapilary (bonus points if you know that reference). Boam is credited with ushering in the era of the sexy, social vampire, and while I won’t thank him for enabling Twilight, As a non-fiction vampire, I will thank him for this movie certainly, and for at least letting vampires in mainstream cinema be dead sexy suckers (oh the puns). Per Wikipedia, Jeffrey Boam was also responsible for writing the screenplays to The Dead Zone, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, and Lethal Weapon 2 & 3, among others. It’s estimated his movies have cumulatively grossed more than a billion US$.
