SACRAMENTO, Calif. - May 12, 2022 - PRLog -- It has been 35 years since the release of one of the most beloved and influential Vampire movies of all time, The Lost Boys, and fans have yearned for more of the iconic Vampire bad-boy gang on screen. With the release of The Lost, fans will finally get their wish. With the City of Santa Cruz ending its long-standing tradition of screening The Lost Boys on the Boardwalk for free, the only public celebration of that film and its 35 year legacy will be The Lost, which is set in 1987 just before the events in The Lost Boys, and in its short runtime it introduces us to another gang of Vampires in town, showing the tense rivalry and how the Boys deal with this other gang. Since it takes place in 1987, the crew carefully made sure that every element seen in this short, from the costumes to the way it was shot, would make it look like it could be a deleted scene from that film, so everything had to feel 80s. As a fan film, The Lost is a completely non-profit endeavor, done for the love of the source material. Shot in Penryn, CA, near Sacramento, the film's cast and crew were all local to the area, and many were Art Institute of California alumni, eager to put their skills to work refreshing a classic franchise with some new blood. Their hard work is finally complete, and they are ready to share it with the world.
The Lost will be released on the date of the 35th anniversary of the release of The Lost Boys, Sunday, July 31st, at 6:00 pm PDT on their website: http://www.TheLostFanFilm.com Director Johnny Bilson will livestream a brief introduction at 6pm PDT just before the film debuts.
