    This is a horror movie in the eighties...he's gay. He wants to leapfrog bareback onto Feldman and his frog brother, while Kiefer lusts after Jason Patric with all that homoerotic teeth gnashing and pensive staring. Jami Gertz? She's just a front.

    Both are awesome movies! Went with Monster Squad though as it holds a bit more of nostalgie for me. If Goonies were in this fight I would have to support it all the way. Goonies never say die! Heyyy youuuu guys!

    That's actually from the opening credits to "The Electric Company" that Sloth is referencing, btw.

    "Leapfrog"

    But where does Laddie fit into all this? Did Keifer keep him/her/it forever young just in case he ever felt like a slice of veal? How did Gertz sneak Laddie away from the clutches of Keifer? Simple. She hid Laddie in her beard.

    Kiefer, Jason and the girl of my dreams for most of my early years Jami. Easily Lost Boys wins. In fact it destroys Monster Squad....and I liked Monster Squad. Just adore Lost Boys that much.

    I have to admit when I was in 7th or 8th grade and this came out I loved it- and I continued to watch it a lot thru highschool- so it is still a movie im quite fond of- Monster Squad I just never could get into for some reason.

    The Monster Squad for sure! I don't consider The Lost Boys to be a kiddie flick though.

    Lost Boys, although I wouldnt exactly consider it kiddie. It's rated R and has its fair share of bloody violence.

    Poll's closed, too bad. I watched both movies recently, and would have voted for The Lost Boys. Nothing against The Monster Squad, which was actually better than what little I remember from my single VHS viewing back in the day. LB has more of an edge and is less "kiddie," which earns it the nod. BTW, it's mentioned in the extras on the LB 2-disc that the movie started out as a strictly "for kids" project, before the director steered it in a hipper, more grown-up direction. Think about that next time you have the urge to bash J.S., which many people do.

    Speaking of kiddie horror, Monster House is actually pretty good; better than I expected. I've also seen The Littlest Vampire, with the kid from Jerry Maguire in it, but I don't remember much about it.
