The Lost Boys (1987)

Directors: Joel Schumacher
Starring: Jason Patric, Kiefer Sutherland

Genre: Horror/Comedy



Synopsis:
"Sleep all day. Party all night. Never grow old. Never die. It's fun to be a vampire.

Sam and his older brother Michael are all-American teen with all-American interests. But after they move with their mother to peaceful Santa Carla, California, things mysteriously begin to change. Michael's not himself lately. And Mom's not going to like what he's turning into.
The Lost Boys reshapes vampire tradition, deftly mixing heart-pounding terror, rib-tickling laughs and a body-gyrating rock soundtrack." - from DVD Pacific


My oppinion:
Someone recommended this one to me a while ago, and I'm glad they did! This nice 80's vampire flick is a job well done for director Joel Schumacher. The Lost Boys has a lot going for it: Great acting, some funny moments and characters (like Grandpa, Sam and the Frog brothers), a bit of gore and a cool soundtrack. But is it scary? No it isn't, but few horror/comedies are... There's also some nice camerawork in this.
The Lost Boys is just plain simple fun and entertainment. If you haven't seen it yet, you should!

My rating:
