    I remember buying the album a couple months before the movie came out in my jerkwater town (Tulsa) and once I finally saw the film after reading about it and listening to the tape as I went to bed ("People are Strange" again and again), I was sorely dissappointed. I still sort of dig it and it does its job but it's not what I wanted it to be.

    I wish Richard Kelly would make a Vampire flick.

      Lost Boys rules, but Near Dark is easily the best vampire flick there is.

        The fight between the older brother and David at the end was a let-down. But still, it's a very good movie.
        There's a door to dreams
        And it always lets you in
        But with a silent scream
        All the nightmares must begin

        Still you chase what you can't see
        Like death and pain and sin
        And the Shadow of The Wind

              Near Dark was so/so. I liked it better as a kid, though. I was recently doing a remote broadcast and the place had a dvd trade in post, I saw Near Dark 2 disc edition and wanted to buy it and they gave it to me. Now that I've seen it again I wouldn't pay for it. It was good, but not the best.

              VAMP's good, Lost Boys good, Salem's Lot, Fright Night (I've even started liking Fright Night 2 now that I have the dvd, but it could have been WAAAAYYYY better), Forever Knight is/was a good vamp show.

              I had always heard they wanted a sequel to the Lost Boys with the Lost Girls. That would have been cool. But, the way things are, look for it to be remade soon with Paul Walker as David and Chris Evans as Michael, Frankie Muniz as Sam, and Clive Owen as Max.

              Come to think of it..that might not be too bad.

                    They should have Keifer play David still, use some makeup, dye the hair, he can look the same! Or even just keifers voice as part of it, like he died but michael who is now old still heres him, use all the old characters!~

                      the salem's lot remake is much better than the original. if you've read the book and then watched the remake you'll see its much more true to the book.

                        That tried too hard.

                          Just because one film adaptation crams more things from the source material into it than the other doesn't make it a good (or better) movie.

                            I don't really care if movies are true to the books they are based on as long as they are entertaining.

                              I like Lost Boys, but I wouldn't say it's the best. It's pretty cheesy vampire camp.
