Punk certainly seems to have influenced many of the costume, design and attitude choices found within The Lost Boys. Permed, greasy hair with thick black gloves and a coat oddly similar to the one I own. It seems Keifer Sutherland has infiltrated my fashion style without me noticing. Still, style is one effort The Lost Boys engages with frequently, not just with costumes, but its appearance and ability to engage with tension and horror. That is the effective nature of director Joel Schumacher, who crafts the boardwalk-stalking vampirism with an incredibly ominous skill. He utilises soundtrack and light, picking apart the beachside resort lifestyle and the tourism that comes with it.
