When Joel Schumacher took over THE LOST BOYS (1987) from Richard Donner, he changed nearly everything in the script, creating a metaphorical fairy tale encapsulating several issues facing teens and families in the mid-80s. Can you name them all and do you agree that's what Schumacher was trying to say? Tara McNamara, Gen X, and Riley Roberts, Gen Y,  apply a modern lens to the horror comedy that gave us the Two Coreys and reveal insights you never saw coming.
