The Lost Boys > Wiki


One of the better vampire films about two new-in-town brothers who discover a local gang of motorcycle youths are more undead than alive. Younger brother Sam (Corey Haim) works hard to eradicate the ghoulies but his older brother (Jason Patric) falls in love with the bunch's lone female (Jami Gertz). Soon, he finds that he's gradually becoming a vampire himself. An interesting candy-coated meditation on teen conformity with a great rock soundtrack.

It's better than most vampire films set in the modern setting, and certainly surpasses one's typical expectations out of a teen vampire flick. The biggest problem here is the story, which could have served as the substance. The script simply doesn't have any of the style that the visuals have, and descends into …

A really cool vampire flick that laughed at itself but never ventured into spoof territory.

What a great '80s horror film! It's got a gang of vampire teenagers, comedy, action, horror, and an awesome soundtrack. Can't go wrong here.

The Lost Boys practically defines 80s teens movies as a horror movie with a gtreat teen cast. Two Brothers, Sam (Haim) and Mike (Patric) move with their newly divorced mom (Wiest) from Phoenix to Santa Carla, a place where, if the corpses were to all stand up at once, there'd be one hell of a population problem, as their goofy backwoods grandfather (Bernard Hughes) explains.     Mike is the first to find out why when his interest in a girl suddenly lures him into a world of trouble …
