I’m going to have piggyback of this post again. But it’s STORY TIME!
I believe I was about 7 or 8 years old when I first saw this movie. I remember this one for a number of reasons . One being it was my first real introduction to modern horror movie(for that time in the 80s). The other one was a bit of an odd one. I remember we had to leave our house for some reason, I remember that there was something wrong with the house and we could stay there for a couple of night. I’m sure I could just call my Mom and ask, but that would be to easy hahaha. Anywho! So we can’t stay at our house and a family friend let us stay at his other houses. He had a few of them around town. I was called out of school for those few days and the first night we were there. There wasn’t much in the house. There was this off white carpet with this fuzzy light blue rug, hospital white walls. In the middle of the living room there was a futon in the middle and a nightstand next to it. There was a basic TV and VCR in front of the futon. There was two bedrooms and small kitchen. Once we made ourselves at home, my Mom and Dad went out and get pizza and rent a few movies. One of tho movies was the Lost Boys! I remember there was a long conversation between my parents if I should watch this movie.
Fast forward a bit, I was able to watch the movie and have some pizza . I sat on the floor as my parents would sit on the futon. As the movie started I kept feeling these weird things crawl on me. Looking at my arms and legs I couldn’t see anything at first. Trying my best to watch the movie and ignore the odd itchy feeling I managed to make it the part where Michael is being introduced to the life style that is a Vampire. I couldn’t take it anymore and stood up and looked at my legs. I had these little black things jumping on and off me and my legs and arms were cover in little bit marks. My parent soon did the same thing and my Mom freaked out and said that there were fleas everywhere! Looking to my right at the TV I see Kiefer Sutherland biting into a guy’s head. Being as little as I was, I was scared and also freaking out about the mount of fleas in this house. Sadly I didn’t get to finish the movie and my parents dropped me off at my Grandparents. Took my shower and went to bed…. I did not sleep at all that night or for the next few nights. The image of that movie and not being ableto finish it haunted me.
Once we got back to the house I over heard my parents talking about the friend’s house. Saying that he would use it as a storing place for his dogs. That he didn’t think that there was going to be a problem like that hahaha. Sadly it wasn’t till about early 90s I was finally about to finish The Lost Boys and I loved it. By that time I was already way into horror/action/fantasy movies. Like I said, it was an odd story and I can’t help to think about it every time I see this movie.
As Mike starts changing into a vamp, the only person he can rely is his younger brother. It’s through their bond and love that the movie has a good deal of heart. Mix in some truly awesome death scenes and the movie is what I like to call a well made cake.
Guillermo Del Toro gave this film a shoutout on social media. Winner for Best Direct Release Film at the iHorror Awards 2015. Title: THE TAKING OF DEBORAH LOGAN Summary: Deborah Logan, a woman battling Alzheimer’s, allows a film crew to document her condition. As the days of filming progress, the crew notes strange behaviors and occurrences happening around Deborah inconsistent with Alzheimer’s -things that are dark and ominous. Whatever it is that’s within her is clearly trying to get out and it threatens to consume anyone who tries to stop it. #horror #horrormovies
It is a sequel to the 2017 film The Babysitter(here is the link from when I watch the first movie back in Oct. of 2017). The film continues the story of Cole Johnson, now in his junior year of high school, who must again fight to ensure his survival over one night, as he is hunted by demonic enemies, both old and new.
Now before I continue with this post. There will be spoilers ahead and if you haven’t seen the movie yet and don’t want spoilers. I would stop now.
Babysitter: Killer Queen is set about two years after the events of the first movie. Still following the main character Cole, now in high school. No one believes him of the events that took place in the first movie and his parents start to think he is crazy. They would later enroll him (or tries to at least) into a psychiatric school.
As any teenager would, they would escape and find themselves at a party by the lake. It would later be reveled that his new found friends were cult members and trying to kill Cole. At this point the original cultists Sonya, Allison, Max, and John also appear, having been resurrected so they could partake in the ritual by sunrise. However, Phoebe suddenly appears, looking for gas for her jet ski, and provides Cole with some time to evade the cult members and escape with Phoebe.
Cole explains to Phoebe, while the cultists give chase. Sonya makes the first attempt to kill them, but they end up running her over with a car left by a stranger and decapitate her with a surfboard…… A surfboard…… Allison finds them, but the two would later trap her between a narrow wedge of rocks and rip off her head. The two board a boat and drive off, but Max catches the raft attached to the back of the boat and is able to pull himself onto the boat. Phoebe at this point sets Max on fire with a can of silly string and a lighter, then shreds him with the boat’s propeller. Diego and Jimmy supernaturally disintegrate when they attempt to back off.
They arrive at Phoebe’s old family cabin, where they take refuge and hope to wait out the night. In the cabin bunker, Phoebe tells Cole that her parents died because she crashed into them in a fatal car accident. Cole comforts her, and the two have sex(as you do). Melanie calls Cole’s father Archie, who has been searching for him alongside Melanie’s father Juan, and fakes being drunk so that he can pick them up, hoping to lure Cole out. Cole and Phoebe come out of the bunker armed with crossbows and John accidentally kills himself when a chandelier crashes on him. Archie gives Cole a sleeping drug so he can take him to his car as Melanie kills Juan with a machete and captures Phoebe.
Stopping for gas, Cole regains consciousness, locks Archie out of the car, and drives back to the lake to save Phoebe. In a cove, Melanie holds Phoebe hostage before Cole shows up and volunteers to be sacrificed. Bee emerges from the water and is revealed to be Phoebe’s babysitter who was responsible for the car accident that killed her parents. Bee made a deal with the devil to save Phoebe’s life in exchange for her soul. Sonya, Allison, Max, and John are resurrected again, and the four alongside Melanie drink the blood of Cole that happens to be mixed with Boom-Boom’s blood. Since Cole has had sex with Phoebe, the ritual backfires and the five melt and disintegrate. Bee, did not drink the blood, reveals that she orchestrated everything so that Phoebe and Cole could unite and defeat the cult, having a change of heart after Cole’s love confession after her first defeat. Bee is still technically a demon, she drinks the blood, she says farewell to Cole and Phoebe and disintegrates to save the two. Archie shows up and, having witnessed Bee’s death, now believes what Cole said was true. As the sun comes up, Cole and Phoebe embrace in a kiss.
Now there is a Easter egg in the mid-credits scene, Bee’s devil book is shown on the sand, still intact. Guess they are leaving things open to make another one? Maybe? Do we need another one? I rather enjoyed the movie and much like the first one. It was a joy to watch and pure brainless fun. What I like to call a “popcorn movie” and if you have the time or looking for a good horror movie. I’d definitely check this movie out!
