Heck yeah! :D That was everything I ever needed from a Lost Boys vid. You even got the bodybuilder/saxophone guy! I love the cutting at the beginning and, of course, the whole meat market concept. Thank you, festividder!

Yay! I'm so happy you like it! It was such a joy to make and if it weren't for your request, I'd probably never made it, so thank you!

That was amazing. I loved the song, loved the vid, loved the little asides re 'you are so sweet', heh. Terrific metaphors too. Great job.

I can't stop rewatching this wow. I haven't even seen this film for years, so I was not expecting that reaction.

The first "there's a meat market down the street" with the images of the missing kids and the bouncy tune - great way of evoking the sense of something very wrong. The "you are so sweet" coming across as so predatory. And of course the song matching the bright colours and general '80s-ness of the film.

The palpable tension between lead guy and Kiefer Sutherland, how he seems to enamoured by both the attractive woman and him. "It's been a long time since before I've been touched" verse with intercuts between the makeouts/sex with one and smoke with the other - very well done.

Just the whole thing makes the film seem both creepier and sexier than I remember (though it's been a while), while still retaining enough of that absurd campness in parts.

Really an excellent vid.

Wow, thank you so so much for this amazingly detailed comment! I'm so delighted that you enjoyed this vid so much. I'm so happy that the "meat market" thing worked for you and also that the "you are so sweet" comes across as predatory.

"The palpable tension between lead guy and Kiefer Sutherland, how he seems to enamoured by both the attractive woman and him." This makes me especially happy, because I kinda surprised myself with the makeout/smoke part and it's great to know that it works for as well :)

"Just the whole thing makes the film seem both creepier and sexier than I remember" I'm very very flattered, what an amazing compliment! Thank you again for this wonderful comment!!!

Niiiice. Really loved the lyric interpretation, you made the song feel like it was written *about* this movie.

What a perfect subversion of the song to illustrate the source! Great editing & truly inspired work.

This is great. The pairing of the song with this source works really well and the ending is marvelous.

Thank you so much! The ending was one of the first images I had in mind while making the vid, I'm glad you like it!
