Ouch... So, the majority (more than half, anyway) who are picking Lost Boys over Near Dark are "lost"? Not looking for a fight, but I can tell you that I consider Lost Boys much, much better than MOST of the titles you listed. Better than Nosferatu? No. Better than Tod Browning's Dracula? Not by a long shot. Better than Blacula? You bet.
As far as Fright Night goes, I'm a huge fan of that too. If it had been between Lost Boys & Fright Night, it would've been a tougher call for me.
Only someone truly "lost" would get in a tizzy over a topic like this.
Anyways, that's obviously not what I was saying. If you go back and check, I picked LOST BOYS over NEAR DARK.
I'm cool with it, like I said, not looking for a fight, all is good...:glasses:
Tight vote count this time.
I went with Near Dark on the strength of Paxon, Hendrikson, and the bar scene.
Lost Boys is more of a comedy to me.
I do love both and don't agree with maybrick's "better" list, although many of those I haven't seen yet.
The Lost Boys for me. I grew up watching that film countless times and I still love it just as much to this day.
NEAR DARK...LOST BOYS was just too "Tiger Beat"-ish for me.
Near Dark, most definitely. I didn't really like The Lost Boys all that much.
Near Dark without a doubt. It's my favorite vampire film, while I think The Lost Boys is pure garbage.
The Lost Boys, I loved it in my younger days. Near Dark is good too, but it's not one that I can really watch over and over again.
Come on Lost Boys fans
Lost Boys all the way, easily. Near Dark has some great gore and it's a cool movie, but its ending is really weak. And yes, the ending for Lost Boys is pretty...well, 80s, but it fits with the film, whereas the Near Dark "love conquers all" ending is...blah. Didn't fit the film.
"Death by stereo!"
Love them both, but going by how many times I have viewed each movie, have to go with Lost Boys. I have viewed LB over 10 times.
I loved Lost Boys as a kid, but I haven't seen it for a few years now. I remember not really enjoying it the last time I did see it so something is telling me to go with Near Dark.
The Cory's ruin the Lost Boys for me now..i didnt mind as much when it was first released...not the case anymore.:lol: Near Dark has a bit of a underwhelming ending,other than that it just plain rawks!
Near Dark is one of the best vampire flick I've seen. Interview with the Vampire would be right up there.
From Dusk Till Dawn would be the best.
Neither film did that much for me, even though The Lost Boys was more enjoyable. As already mentioned there are tons better vampire films-Fright Night, Hooper's Salem's Lot, Lust For A Vampire, Horror Of Dracula-to name just a few.
Loved both films but for a pure horror film, Near Dark would win. Plus I think ND has held up better over the years...Still a pretty close contest for me though.
