Did The Lost Boys Change Your Perspective About Youth?

The Lost Boys was born from the idea of J.M. Barrie’s character, Peter Pan, who never grows up like the vampires in the movie. It is a dark reflection of what being like a kid forever means.

We can all agree that staying in our youth forever was once our dream growing up. All the responsibilities and commitments are too much because it tests our maturity in life. Like Sam and Michael, who have discovered their own version of Neverland, they were forced to come to terms with what it means to be human and make the decision to grow up.

So, we hope these The Lost Boys quotes were able to encourage you to enter the world of adults. Remember that never growing up is not all rainbows and fairies. It may also mean entering the lair of vampires and experiencing different horrors like what Sam and Michael did.
