Lost Boys #5/David's hand

The film's iconic moment occurs when Sam escapes David's grip. Exposed to sunlight, David's hand bursts into flames. He pulls his hand back in and chuckles "Tonight....". I have one more of Lost Boys for tomorrow.

Edit: I'm looking at this and thinking this is the vampiric equivalent of approaching a light socket with a fork - the thrill of it all.

Man, I have got to watch The Lost Boys again.

Oooh! You've been playing with fire again. Its good to be reminded that some flames are creative and not all are destructive. Thank you. Keifer's face is a treat in this picture. Definitely the best of the series.

Ditto Megan.
I think they should give you royalties for these revamped stories, Susan.
This baby here is just classic. I think you should start thinking about a book . . .
Or maybe Keifer would be interested?

You like to play with fire, don't you?

It almost makes me cry to tell
What foolish Harriet befell.
Mamma and Nurse went out one day
And left her all alone at play.
Now, on the table close at hand,
A box of matches chanced to stand;
And kind Mamma and Nurse had told her,
That, if she touched them, they would scold her.
But Harriet said: "Oh, what a pity!
For, when they burn, it is so pretty;
They crackle so, and spit, and flame...

- Harriet and the Matches, Heinrich Hoffman

That is a very excellent cave. Really, doesn't Keifer look like himself plus more?! Good work here. - Jeanne

Great job cutting across all the different dimensions. I love it.

OY! Did I just get a flash-back from that poem! But it was my Pop's zippo lighter instead of matches. No worries; I didn't burn down the house!

There is only one take for the scene, I guess. For a second one, another actor is required.

bindu said...

Great stuff. Lost Boys is such a modern classic. Nice to see a hat-tip to a cool movie.
