‘The Lost Boys’ – Horror Movies That Inspired Songs


Iconic teen vampire flick ‘The Lost Boys’ has been a horror fan favorite since its release in 1987. Starring Kiefer Sutherland, Jason Patric and the double same-named ’80s heartthrob attack of Corey Feldman and the late Corey Haim, the film follows two kids who move to California, only to discover a bad-ass gang of teenage vampires. A sweet battle for souls is fought between the blood-sucking immortals and the living, with the end of the film utilizing one of the funniest twists in horror.

Finnish gothic rock band the 69 Eyes took inspiration for the film for ‘Lost Boys,’ the first single from their 2004 full-length album, ‘Devils.’ The track has become one of the 69 Eyes’ trademark songs, accompanied by a video directed by ‘Jackass’ star Bam Margera which pays homage to its movie namesake. Most notably, the Hollywood-filmed video recreates an iconic scene from ‘The Lost Boys’ where the vampires hang off a bridge and drop into a misty abyss below.
