Ok, so the site is experiencing some issues at the moment. I have no idea why, but as we speak I’m working on them. For some reason what is showing up is using the last layout of the site, and lots of things aren’t showing up. This is typical, because today is the day that everything is kicking off.
For awhile now, the LostCavers on the forums have been debating fiercely about the upcoming sequel, and if you’ve missed the hoo-har so far, the summary is that the sequel is going to be a straight-to-DVD release about surfing vampires – this bothers us for a number of reasons, the most painful is that vampires in The Lost Boys world cannot touch running water, and now they’re going to be hanging 10?
Basically, the fandom is enraged that Warner Brothers are making a sequel with little or no regard for the original – and the fans. The sequel will be a straight to DVD release, meaning that they want us to buy this, and we are somewhat annoyed that they expect us to buy a movie that essentially is a mockery of the original that we love so much. I’m probably phrasing this badly, so what you really should do is have a look at our lovely Cat Lady express our views eloquently over at YouTube.
Should this get you suitably riled up – and I hope it does, because, yes, it is nice that they’re finally making a sequel, but no, it’s not nice that they don’t really respect us or the original movie – then I suggest you do as much as you can for the cause.
We want to be heard.
