Few things are more “1980s” than 1987’s vampire flick THE LOST BOYS. Everything about THE LOST BOYS is so firmly entrenched in this decade, from the cast of then-young actors (the two Coreys (Haim & Feldman), Kiefer Sutherland, Jamie Gertz, Jason Patric (who?)); the fashions; the soundtrack; the make-up effects.
So how does THE LOST BOYS hold up? Is it as timeless as, well, a vampire?
Who are hotter: the vampires of THE LOST BOYS or the vampires from the TWILIGHT series?
Is Jamie Gertz’s (non)acting proof that she is, in fact, one of the undead?
Join VHS Rewind as our hosts, Chris and Mark, revisit THE LOST BOYS and once again get lost in the shadows to find definitive answers to those questions and also find themselves incapable of stopping themselves from bursting into several songs from THE LOST BOYS soundtrack (although neither host takes his shirt off and starts playing the saxophone).
Forty-plus years later, she is still smoking hot. She still does it to the hosts of VHS Rewind, just one look and VHS Rewind’s middle-aged-viagra-starved libido is suddenly ten years old again, awake, eager.
We speak, of course, of that goddess (literally and figuratively), Isis. Joanna Cameron. Before Farrah Fawcett was on Charlie’s Angels, Joanna Cameron had the most amazingly gorgeous tan on television. To think that this was Saturday morning (childrens) television: surely, the hosts of VHS Rewind were not the only ones who broke his cherry with this show.
We at VHS Rewind simply can not, will not speak ill of ISIS (the show). It is just too important a part of out childhood. Every minute, every second, is our youth, re-lived. The magic spell that Joanna Cameron intones to become The Might Isis, the narration over the opening credits…we really do gain back some years just by watching this show.
John VHS Rewind as our hosts relive their innocence lost when they revisit the Saturday morning classes ISIS.
