One of the classic 80s cult films I’ve overlooked and delayed doing an analysis of has been Joel Schumacher’s 1987 Lost Boys. While somewhat of a box office hit at the time, the film is arguably more popular now than it was at the time of its release. With straight to DVD sequels and endless references in pop culture references, Lost Boys is its own little phenomenon.

However, when we consider the fact that Schumacher is a director who is apparently aware of deeper aspects of the occult, such as numerology and mind control, seen in his 2007 film The Number 23, as well as news revelations of elite pedophile rings and ritual abuse, we have justification for investigating something deeper in Lost Boys.

The plot centers around a newly divorced mom named Lucy (Diane Wiest), and her two sons, MIchael (Jason Patric) and Sam (Corey Haim) who are forced to move from Phoenix to Lucy’s trickster father’s cabin, the kooky pot-smoking Grandpa. Upon entering the fictional Santa Carla, Michael notices a warning painted on the back of billboard that it’s the “murder capitol of the world.” David (Kiefer Sutherland) is the alpha dog in a band of roving, miscreant Aryan vampires, who are members of a secret coven, led by cult head, Max (Edward Hermann).

I’m sure most readers have seen the film, so we won’t get bogged down in plot details, but I will argue that the film’s title itself, Lost Boys, will be a clue to the interpretation I give. On one level, the reference is to J.M. Barrie’s lost boys of Peter Pan fame, but it also has reference to human trafficking and literal “lost boys,” as we see community posting boards full of “missing child” pictures. Santa Carla is home to vampire cults eating victims, but aside from the fat cop, the majority of the numerous “missing” posters in the film are children and teens. Another key indicator is the triangle with a spiral seen on the first board, which the FBI identifies as a symbol for pedophile rings.

We can also see significance in the names of the main characters, as Michael recalls St. Michael, the guardian angel, Sam, Samael or Satan, and Lucy, Lucifer. Similarly, when Michael learns the name of his love interest, “Star” (played by Jami Gertz), he explains that his parents were hippies who almost named him “Moonchild.” Moonchild is the famous novel of Aleister Crowley that refers to impregnation by a spirit being – something occult rituals have long sought to invoke.

Indeed, Lucy’s parenting style perfectly portrays a failed parent who seeks to be her sons’ “friend.” With a broken family and baby-boomer hippy parenting, Lucy’s family becomes a model of American dysfunctionalism, while simultaneously the circus atmosphere of Santa Carla becomes emblematic of the entertainment-dominated circus that is pop Amerika. Having grown up in California during the 80s, and being about the same age as Corey Haim, I can affirm the weirdness of California.

Lucy's Sun Disc.

The film is oddly dominated by two strands of symbology – Native American and Egyptian. Lucy wears a sun disc necklace, Grandpa’s cabin is full of Native American artwork, and mention of “Phoenix” is made frequently. There is alot to unpack here, but I think the overall significance here is simply dominant occult imagery. We do see an All-Seeing Eye with an ankh in the comic book shop where Sam meets the Frog Brothers, which suggests Masonry or witchcraft.

While the Frog Brothers represent “truth, justice and the American way,” Sam begins to notice bizarre synchronicities between what he reads in his comics and real life. Indeed, the comic shop itself seems to be a miniature location of all the symbology in the film, from upwards pentagrams to the Phoenix to the All-Seeing Eye. Even the stoned couple passed out by the TV represent the destructive, dysfunctional nature of the post-60s boomer generation.

The Phoenix of alchemical rebirth and transformation.

Michael, Lucy’s firstborn son, we discover to be Star’s first human sacrifice. While it may be news to readers, the notion of human sacrifice is very real in serious cult groups. In fact, the recent revelations of elite pedophilia in the U.K. in the Savile circles includes the sacrifice of children, as well as the Franklin Coverup. Both the Franklin coverup and the pedophilia in the U.K. also includes the trafficking of young boys, and when we consider the revelations of all the same degeneracy in Roman Catholicism, we can see a clear pattern of what former Jesuit and exorcist Malachi Martin exposed in 1990 in his Keys of This Blood. Martin wrote:

For more information on this topic, I recommend readers check out William Kennedy's "Lucifer's Lodge."

For more information on this topic, I recommend readers check out William Kennedy’s “Lucifer’s Lodge.”

“Most frighteningly for [Pope] John Paul [II], he had come up against the irremovable presence of a malign strength in his own Vatican and in certain bishops’ chanceries. It was what knowledgeable Churchmen called the ‘superforce.’ Rumors, always difficult to verify, tied its installation to the beginning of Pope Paul VI’s reign in 1963. Indeed Paul had alluded somberly to ‘the smoke of Satan which has entered the Sanctuary’. . . an oblique reference to an enthronement ceremony by Satanists in the Vatican. Besides, the incidence of Satanic pedophiliarites and practices was already documented among certain bishops and priests as widely dispersed as Turin, in Italy, and South Carolina, in the United States. The cultic acts of Satanic pedophilia are considered by professionals to be the culmination of the Fallen Archangel’s rites.” (p. 632)

With this in mind, the ritual aspects of David and Max’s coven takes on a new perspective. Michael is lured into the cult through sex with Star and participation in the ritual of drinking blood and hallucinogens. As Michael is inducted, he has a bad trip that results in an alteration of his psyche that leads to the beginnings of possession.

As he falls further and further into darkness, his alchemical processing culminates in ritual sex with Star. In other words, sex magick is in the background of Lost Boys, giving new meaning to the notion of Max’s “boys.” They aren’t his biological children, and in the climax scene, Max reveals his desire to make Lucy’s boys “part of his family.” This lends credence to the idea that possibly dark forces have led Lucy to Santa Carla, and the “Phoenix” imagery is intended to be a rebirth of a demonic nature – Lucy and her boys are going to be “reborn” into a new “family.”

Sam and Frog Brothers pas the ankh and All-Seeing Eye.

The “Family” also hearkens to two different California cults, the “Family” of Charles Manson and the family of the “Children of God.” Both cults involved the brainwashing of children and teens for sexual slavery and occult ritualism, as well as murder. The Manson case is well-known, but the Children of God, or the Family International cult is lesser known, yet involved famously the case of River Phoenix, who ended up dead after revealing to Vanity Fair the sinister elements of the cult. Other famous figures had unfortunate experiences with the Children, too, such as Rose McGowan. These cults served as fronts for sex trafficking weirdos, as well as utilizing mind control and brainwashing techniques. Interesting side note – Joaquin played a victimized cult member in the Scientology-esque based film, The Master.

Welcome to Jim Morrison's Vampire Hotel California.

Welcome to Jim Morrison’s Vampire Hotel California.

Another strange element is the Doors theme that occurs throughout the film, from the credit sequence version of “People are Strange,” to the Jim Morrison posters in the Vampire cult’s hotel cave. This may have reference to Jim Morrison’s own reported induction into the occult through his affair with Patricia Kinnealy, as vividly portrayed in Oliver Stone’s The Doors. The scene of Michael’s induction is noticeably similar to the portrayal in Stone’s film, but even more interesting is the military industrial complex affiliations with the rise of the Laurel Canyon musicians as exposed in Dave McGowan’s work (including The Doors). I have cited it before, but in relation to Lost Boys, we again see the oblique hints at these dark networks and readers should keep in mind that True Detective was also based on a real case.

In conclusion, what we see from such films is a revelation of the dark side of the establishment, and even though Lost Boys contains a lot of silly, fantastical elements, I think there is a case to be made that more is lurking in the background. Note that I am not making any accusations against Schumacher or any specific person – I do not know who Feldman and Haim say they were abused by.  Nevertheless, Feldman’s claims are daily being vindicated in even mainstream media, as U.S. and U.K. outlets are unable to contain the avalanche of abuses by the degenerate establishment, including Satanic ritual abuse.  While skeptics may scoff at all this, I grew up near a town famous for its own convicted Vampire murder cult – that of Rod Ferrell, whose teen coven met in an old, abandoned hotel.  Whatever your own personal views, it is a fact that some people take this very seriously, despite your skepticism.

    The revelations of child abuse over here in the UK are becoming ever more stomach churning, and reach the very highest levels of society. From Prince Andrew to Margaret Thatcher (the press are saying she turned a “blind eye”, I say she was involved due to her close relationship with Jimmy Savile, and many of the politicians she covered up for), and beyond, it’s getting to the point where you can imagine satanic rituals all over the halls of power.

    People here have such an atheist materialist world view that even now if you mention the occult or satanic ritual abuse they practically laugh at you. That is despite all the news, and evidence presented to them.

    The problem is the main stream media report it as simply a gang of paedophiles running amok, if they report it properly at all. Jimmy Savile was given cart blanche in children’s hospitals, morgues, prisons, he was a necrophile for crying out loud. One that was extremely close to the prime minister. Yet mention Satan and you become the lunatic. Its frustrating.

    Here’s that “article-length” response I warned you about:

    First of all, great article. I, like so many others, am a huge Lost Boys fan! The article is dead on, and it has just pushed me into all kinds of new (and well-trodden) paths of my own proverbial mental labyrinth, as you’ve discussed in other reviews.

    The Corey Feldman revelation (clip you posted) about child actors freaked me out when I originally saw it a few months ago. It got me really thinking about a lot of things, though, regarding Hollywood pedophilia and mind control. I know the deathfaker thing is pretty fringe, and caliberhitter seems like a bit of a joke (mainly because of his gangsta persona and his vanity). However, he really does seem like he’s done some research. Please hear me out, regardless, because this is awesome. I wouldn’t have brought this up if you hadn’t covered the Children of God cult, but since you did, I decided to birth it unto the blogosphere for consideration.

    This really could be the awesomest (or stupidest) thing you’ve ever seen, so check it out. If nothing else, I think of this as a great mental exercise. I mean, the cognitive gap for belief in the true existence of deatherfakers is so great—perhaps it’s good sometimes to attempt to close those gaps that leave you particularly confounded or incredulous.

    I definitely don’t want to discredit myself by talking about deathfakers too much, but you just made a very important connection for me in this article. I didn’t realize Jim Morisson had a Children of God connection until now, and he, according to caliberhitter, is THE original deathfaker (reemerged as Rush Limbaugh). It seems ridiculous (like it always does with deathfakers), but when you see the pictures side by side with teeth, the resemblance between them, like the other supposed deathfakers, is pretty uncanny.

    Now, I wouldn’t have made the connection between pedophilia and deathfakers if it weren’t for this one website I found. I was thinking it would be awesome to go through the songography of Radiohead and analyze all of the references to World Government and Illuminati possible. This inclination came specifically from thinking about the song from 2000’s Kid A album, “Idioteque,” which had tons of standard Global Warming warnings, yet the lines “Let me hear both sides!” as well as “take the money and run” may indicate that Thom was, even if unintentionally, hinting at its being a hoax. I say “unintentionally,” because in an interview around the time of Kid A, he said regarding his lyrics: “I…don’t know what they mean—I’ve got no idea, and the others are really good at knowing what they mean.” (What you’ll ask later, as I eventually asked myself, is whether by “others” he meant his “bandmates” or his mind-control “handlers.”)

    Anyway, I luckily decided to check if someone had gone through their lyrics for NWO/Illuminati references before, and sure enough, someone had. This is where I landed: http://occultmediadeception.blogspot.com/2011/01/radiohead_30.html

    This Occult Media Deception guy has done a bang-up (if a bit laconic) job covering all of the many hidden meanings behind Radiohead lyrics I’d never had ANY idea about. What he mostly discussed was mind control and programming, specifically those in childhood, referencing a document called “The Illuminati Formula Used to Create an Undetectable Total Mind Controlled Slave” by Cisco Wheeler and Fritz Springmeier. Not sure if you’ve read this, but it seemed pretty incredible (a little scattershot maybe?), even though I didn’t have time read it all. A lot are also from this guy called Svali—the work referenced: “How the Cult Programs People.”

    The article proper covers all Radiohead lyrics (save some b-sides) and solo project songs. It also masterfully analyzes the imagery in their music videos (which I always just thought were better-than-average fish-eye-lens nineties fare). Starting with Pablo Honey, we are treated to a horrifying revelation of several themes and references Thom might have been alluding to: Child Abuse, Torture, Isolation, etc. The isolation and torture themes were particularly heavy in the lyrics for Pablo Honey and the Bends. So surprising because they were such sugary (and frankly amateur in the previous) pop stylings with a light “weaker-than-REM” touch. The Bends is a masterpiece, though. The imagery in both is pretty freaking horrendous.

    I knew a little bit about MKUltra programming techniques (about as much as Manchurian Candidate remake and a few of your articles taught me), but I had no idea there was so much information available on the techniques used on children in these abusive/cult situations. Just as I had no idea that Thom Yorke knew so much about them (if they are indeed what he seems to be referencing in his lyrics). After a bit of your standard masonic imagery being covered from the song “You”, the first thing the article explains and relates is the basic techniques for indoctrinating and programming a child. It involves long-term and torturous isolation of a child (the MK slave) in a room, followed by a “rescue” by the “trainer” who then instills the cult teachings while they nurse them back to health after the intense period of deprivation. This creates a false trust in the trainer, which is the first step towards complete control. The article also later covers some Radiohead lyrics that seem to reference the horrifying practice of forcing the MK slave to kill an infant or to make them believe they’ve killed one. “Cut the kids in half” ring a (morning) bell? Not one week after reading this, I saw that viral YouTube depicting English cult kids just casually relating experiences of infanticide and cannibalism (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DlgEvvG8v6c).

    It’s too much to even get into all of the extensive article, but one of the other more memorable things was the constant “left eye” mutilation references in a lot of their cover art. Thom Yorke, if you didn’t know, has a half-closed left eye. I had read their unauthorized band biography long ago, and I knew about this deformity, but that book said it was something that happened in the hospital after birth. He is apparently very sensitive about it. Some more left-eye mutilation references are shown from Pink Floyd’s the Wall and Un Chien Andalou by Dali. This quote from David Icke was also presented (I’m sure you knew about this): “One common sign of programming or childhood sexual abuse… a squint in the left eye.’
    Chapter 16: ‘Where have all the children gone? The Biggest Secret”

    Immediately, I couldn’t help but think of “Left Eye” from TLC—you know, the one that died? Why in the world would anyone go by “Left Eye?” That is not a coincidence. Not sure if anyone has made this connection, yet, but I’m patting myself on the back for making it as of right now.

    So to get to the point (after much deliberation), the most intriguing part of this article was Occult Media’s explanation of the (amazing) song, “Climbing Up the Walls” from OK Computer. I will provide the whole quote that they relate to the song:

    ‘Internal walls: these will often represent very large internal amnesia barriers… A typical use for a wall will be to maintain high levels of amnesia between “front” or daily living, amnesic alters, and “back” or cult active alters that contain more of the person’s life history. The back may be able to selectively see over and cross past the wall, but the front will be completely unaware that there is a wall, or what lies behind it.’ Svali

    The idea of “more of the person’s life history” behind this “amnesia wall” really struck me. Now, don’t get me wrong, I’m still not fully convinced on the deathfaker thing, but I have contemplated long and hard how someone could really live and continually lie about who they are. At first, I thought (and I think to some extent was right) that someone would be okay lying about their real identity (and they could pull it off) only if they thought that the lie was somehow making the world a better place. I couldn’t uphold a lie if I knew it was harmful or if I was hiding something negative about myself. But if you’re doing good, or saving the world, it should be easy to tell a lie, right?

    However, the Svali quote gave me a much better explanation. The best lie (even better than a half-truth) is the one that you actually believe is true. So with our new-found knowledge of programming methods employing pedophilia/torture, we can easily apply the Corey Feldman claim that child stars in Hollywood are often pedophile victims to the types of people that are being called deathfakers. Two of them (as claimed by some) are notorious child actors River Phoenix and Jonathan Brandis. Brandon Lee, though not a child actor, was clearly around in Hollywood as a child, and could very easily have been victimized in this way. So, if these guys’ alter egos are really “deathfakers” pulling off the deception of their new persona in every new Liberty podcast/radio show they put out, constantly insisting that they’re not the dead celebrities they resemble, then it is possible they’re actually those people physically, but they are total mind-control slaves who’ve been activated, and their “front” identities cannot access their true identities and life history in the “back” of their consciousness.

    I’m not sure if any deathfaker theorists have gotten into the ins & outs of the mind-control process or if anyone has tied any of this into their theories. I guess I should have googled that or something. But if deathfakers really exist and are hiding in plain sight, this would be a perfect method for the accused to maintain such a convincing front. An initiate who’d been programmed from childhood would undeniably be the best candidate for a new identity, instead of, as the regular theory suggests, a volunteer who is talented yet predisposed and amenable to the relevant agenda.

    I hadn’t made the child actor connection for any of the other guys (still haven’t for Bill Hicks), but you’ve now provided a connection to mind-control/pedophilia for Jim Morrison. I guess, though, that his involvement with the cult (that you mentioned) happened later in life. However, he lived in Los Altos, California (near a military base no less) as a small child, and let’s not ignore claims of his being molested by his Dad who was involved in Vietnam Black Ops and military intelligence. So there we have it. And his story also seems to relate to the CIA’s manufacture of the hippie movement and all that went on in Laurel Canyon—at least from the little I know about it from your article and this thread: http://www.godlikeproductions.com/forum1/message1169856/pg1

    To top it all off, I just realized this: “Anyone Can Play Guitar” from Pablo Honey (Radiohead’s first album) has the repeated line, “I wanna be, wanna be Jim Morrison!” That’s just way too coincidental for comfort.

    So again, hopefully this doesn’t discredit me. Would love to hear your take on all this and deathfakery in general if you’re game. Hopefully this surpasses the standard Illuminati inquiries you’re subjected to. Think of it as more of a treatise on the potential mind control applications and techniques being employed that might not have been looked at yet.

    • Lol oh come on dude

      • modernlifesurvivalist // March 10, 2015 at 5:01 am //

        Haha, I know. Guess deathfaker stuff is as unpopular as I thought, including with yourself. I just had to get it out of my system. Sorry that had to happen in the form of puke all over your page. At least it was kind of related to your article. Thanks for hearing me out.

        There has to be at least someone out there, though, who this Svali front/back mental paradigm applies to—you know, who has a past identity they’re not completely aware of. And I’m sure that if it’s been done, it’s through this type of abuse combined with programming at a young age. We’ll hopefully find out some day, but sadly, we probably won’t.

  6. Have you seen an old independent film called The Reflecting Skin jay? It has a similar premise, only it is a little more open about what the “vampires” are when you get to the end of the film. At least that is my-interpretation of it. I saw it years ago and as far as I know it is still out of circulation, so I cannot be sure. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gxlnDRqPUXE

  7. Great job as always. Speaking of vampires here’s “Was Jimmy Savile A Wizard?” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-QUuCWNyvv8

  8. Very interesting. The head of that dog behind Lucy’s head is truly demonic.

    That image of the billboard with missing kids has the dates Sept 10-15th!?!

    Have you seen those vids decoding Back to the Future with the allusions to 9/11? Here’s one:

    There’s a load of stuff in there about Grey aliens and Roswell..?! The rest seems to ring true though..

    Great site BTW.

    Your missing children image could be clearer. I just purchased the film from Amazon and went to the clip. In between the date Sept 10-15 and the FBI Triangle, there’s a serpent and what looks like an eye on a pyramid. Also, if you watch the clip, to the right of the woman posting the image of the missing cop, there’s a black and white checkerboard, which is typical freemasonry symbolism as it’s on the floor of Freemason temples, and is also why the police in the UK here have it on their uniform. Lots of purple in the scene too.

  10. Not even Ronald Reagan’s White House was safe for kids.
