During breakfast this morning I went on a tirade about the character David from The Lost Boys. I saw the movie when I was young and impressionable and I cried at the end when ultimately, the vampire David is killed. My daughter laughed, and so I explained why really, he wasn’t such a bad guy except for the eating people part. I realized I was actually making sense, so here’s why:
1. David was told to make Micheal a vampire by his sire
“Sire” being David’s implied vampire dad, Max. Max wanted to bring Lucy into his family as the mother figure. He explains this all at the end. If Michael and Sam were turned into vampires, Lucy would readily agree to be turned as well. So it wasn’t David’s idea, he was just… trying to help his dad hook up with the new single mom in town?
