7 Things You (Probably) Didn't Know About the Lost Boys



The Lost Boys was released to theaters on July 31, 1987. It was such a film for the 1980s, when sexy teenage vampires were dangerous monsters, instead of selfless glittery romantic interests, although each version of pop culture vampire has the perfect hair for its era. Cinefix revisits The Lost Boys with some trivia for the movie's 30th anniversary. Has it really been that long? Yes it has. While the story is fairly timeless, the big hair, the chunky pants, and those shoulder pads peg 1987 to a T. (via Mashable)

1987? And "soft contacts hadn't been invented yet"? That's false. Absolutely false.

Yep, I looked it up. Soft lenses were developed in Czechoslovakia around 1959, and approved for use in the USA in 1972.

Shoulder pads.LOL. I always wondered why women wanted to look like football players.
