That all changed in the 1980’s, when the the Lost Boys, a movie about young, teen aged, biker vampires became a big hit. This movie made a new vampire concept popular, and it won the hearts of many followers for years to come. The movie The Lost Boys presented a vampire that looked just like any other rock and roll obsessed teenager in that era. They wore stylish, edgy trench coats, leather jackets, and rode around in high speed dirt bikes. Did I also mention that they were all worthy of a Calvin Klein ad? For example, David, played by Keifer Sutherland wore a very fashionable mullet and had a single ear pierced. His bad boy persona; even though he played the heel was the object of lust to many a young girl. Yes, these vampires, including the vampiress were beautiful, erotic, and bad. The kind of bad you just cannot stay away from. Once again, vampires had been revamped.
It was clear to see that the vampire had powers of seduction, because it’s power over the silver screen was more than just fiction. This beast just kept flourishing, and adapting to what the public wanted.
