I had to circle back around, of course. Because I really do love vampires, even the Ricean ones. I love the angsty and turmoily types as much as the bloodletters. But I really fell for them thanks to this movie…
This movie influenced me a LOT!
I’d never heard of a person named Star before. Now, it’s what I think we all ought to do, name our children cool names!
The big muscular guy on the stage playing the saxophone at the amusement park? I’d have HIS babies, and he could even name them Charles or Michael if we had to.
But this song…
…helped me survive teenagerhood. Well, if what I did was called surviving 😉 I had a red light and a bedroom in the basement, and I used to meditate to this song before going to class or cheerleading practice. It just kept me…grounded in who I was becoming.
This is my favourite cover:
The original lost boys were in Peter Pan, though I think the trope probably existed in legend before 1904. It’s the idea that some children will become lost, never grow up…and maybe never die…
Would you be tempted…?
Modern horror isn’t always as good as the spooky new stuff that came out in the 80s and 90s. But it’s still good. They really do ghosts and spirits better now, if you ask me. Like this one…the spirit in this one is just freaky!
Throw in a seedy doctor with an agenda and a snoopy aunt begging to ‘get it’ and it really turned out great =)
There’s going to be a sequel, but I don’t recognize the names involved. So not sure how good it’ll be. I mean, how do sequels work out anyway, right? They usually don’t. But we do love to see our fave monsters and spirits back again and on the attack.
I found the story of ‘Mama’ very sad. It was presented in a way I could appreciate, not too fast, not too intense. I get so empathetic over well acted movies, and this one got me. I hated in the ending how the sisters split up, and the one went with Mama. Oops, spoiler 😉
Speaking of ‘were’ beasts….!
This movie inducted me into my love and lust for werewolves. The end part with Red Riding Hood? Mmmmm! Love it! And the various transformations too. However, this is the best part of the movie.
Still brings a tear to my eye, mew. She is so sexy/adorable!
Well okay, THIS is also awesome, mostly for the lullaby bit at the end!
Sorry I was gone the last two or three days. Sometimes babies get sick, and you go to Emergency, and they’re all “oh it’s a baby, we have to do EVERYTHING just in case!” And it’s good and all but, man, nobody wants to be in the room when MY baby is getting an IV. I tell ya! They moved us to a quiet room with a door VERY quickly.
Anyway, I will work on finishing up the Patreon.com pics for November. And see some of you in chat and email soon! *muah*
