Anyone for a transvestite remake of the 1987 film The Lost Boys?

This doesn't involve Start Trek & Batman too, does it?

Aw, jeez, I really shouldn't....

Ah, hell. I've been good lately. Okay, yeah. Yeah, I'll take one.

Nope, not on my wish list. Let me know when you have something not blindingly stupid.

i can't imagine it being any more homoerotic than the original.

They've already made a transvestite version of The Lost Boys. It was called The Lost Boys.

I'll be watching the original down at the boardwalk (where it was filmed) two weeks from today. And tell ya what, I'll represent, and go in drag.

Tranny Vampires are cool, but Little People Werewolves ftw.

"The Lost Girls came into being without a script, storyboards, crew or trained actors"

Oh sure, that sounds like the making of a great lil' flick.

The Lost Boys was terrifying.

Those outfits! Gave me nightmares for weeks!

Hey Ambrosia, that sounds fun. Is it something they're doing at the pier or something?

Off topic: I really wish that we could replace Rickrolling people with Coreyrolling them and pointing them to that video.

The link says "on the beach in front of the boardwalk." So either on the bandstand or a special screen.

Armed with...the desire to subvert the vampire genre film

Good luck with that. There have been movies with lesbian vampires (Blood and Roses, 1960), silly vampires (Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein, 1948), bacteria-fueled vampire zombies (The Last Man on Earth, 1964), intergalactic vampires (Horror of the Blood Monsters, 1970), blaxploitation vampires (Blacula, 1972), deaf vampires (Deafula, 1975), vampire Dobermans (Zoltan, Hound of Dracula, 1978), porn vampires (Lust at First Bite, aka Dracula Sucks, 1979), gay male vampires (Gayracula, 1983), vampire strippers (Vamps, 1995), donut-loving vampires (Blood & Donuts, 1995), MILB-seeking vampires (Mom's Got a Date with a Vampire, 2000), Jesus-hunted vampires (Jesus Christ Vampire Hunter, "The Power of Christ Impales You," 2001), ballet vampires (Dracula: Pages from a Virgin's Diary, 2002), and barely legal lesbian vampires (Barely Legal Lesbian Vampires, 2003).

Oh, and transvestite vampires (Flaming Creatures, 1963).

You want to talk about subverting the genre? Maybe Alabama's Ghost (1973):
You may not care that you understand only a third of the plot, which is partly summed up in the opening minute via a voiceover describing an early 20th-century Nazi scientist and robot technologist named Caligula who went to India to find the magician Carter the Great, who had discovered a substance known as Raw Zeta that resembled a form of hashish called Cartoon Khaki and that when refined and introduced into a human body via acupuncture, could form Deadly Zeta, which would give the human the power to hypnotize people. Got it?
And that's before the witch doctor with a frog stitched to his chest shows up.

The vampires in Jesus Christ Vampire Hunter are also Lesbians. Frankensteined Lesbians. Hunted by a Jesus that strongly resembles Jason Kottke.
