Joel Schumacher's 1987 cult classic The Lost Boys had more than a few
magic elements going for it: a gang of modern-day punk vamps, a hunky
21-year-old Jason Patric (or, if you prefer, a hunky 21-year-old Kiefer
Sutherland), and the two Coreys! The comedy-horror tale of brothers (Corey
Haim and Patric) who stumble upon a network of vampires in a seaside
California town benefited from its teen idol cast -- which included actress
Jami Gertz in her hottie heyday -- as much as it did from the
eternally-quotable Frog brothers (played by Jamie Newlander and Corey
Feldman). But Patric's tortured, drool-worthy performance as the half-vampire
Michael (not to mention his sweltering love scene with Gertz' Star) earned him
a spot on our Tiger Beat-plastered walls -- and made us think we wouldn't mind
drinking a little vampire blood wine ourselves.
Bram Stoker's Dracula, Francis Ford Coppola's sensuous vampire flick,
makes a key point about the Count: It's not the worst gig in the world. Sure,
you have to suck blood, live in the dark, and avoid garlic, but there's hardly
a shortage of female companionship. In BSD, Dracula (Gary Oldman) is
hot for Mina (Winona Ryder) and Lucy (Sadie Frost), but when he's not ravaging
innocents, he's got three hot wives waiting at home -- among them Monica
Bellucci, who made her English language debut here. Despite their
vivaciousness, however, the brides come with a downside: they're always
nagging the poor count to get them more blood.
