The Lost Boys is one of 80's cinema's iconic vampire films about two new-in-town brothers who discover a local gang of motorcycle youths (including a young Kiefer Sutherland) are more undead than alive. Younger brother Sam (Corey Haim) works hard to eradicate the ghouls but his older brother (Jason Patric) falls in love with the group's lone female (Jami Gertz). Soon, he finds that he's gradually becoming a vampire himself. Shot on location in the coastal California town of Santa Cruz and directed by Joel Schumacher (Flatliners), The Lost Boys became a pop-culture phenomenon thanks to its attractive young stars, offbeat soundtrack, and hip, clever marketing campaign. The film's tagline: "Sleep all day. Party all night. Never grow old. Never die. It's fun to be a vampire." perfectly captured its knowing mixture of attitude and gore.
This 1987 thriller was a predictable hit with the teen audience it worked overtime to attract. Like most of director Joel Schumacher's films, it's conspicuously designed to push the right marketing and demographic buttons and, granted, there's some pretty cool stuff going on here and there. Take Kiefer Sutherland, for instance. In Stand by Me he played a memorable bully, but here he goes one step further as a memorable bully vampire who leads a tribe of teenage vampires on their nocturnal spree of bloodsucking havoc. Jason Patric plays the new guy in town, who quickly attracts a lovely girlfriend (Jami Gertz), only to find that she might be recruiting him into the vampire fold. The movie gets sillier as it goes along, and resorts to a routine action-movie showdown, but it's a visual knockout (featuring great cinematography by Michael Chapman) and boasts a cast that's eminently able (pardon the pun) to sink their teeth into the best parts of an uneven screenplay. --Jeff Shannon --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.See all Product Description

Well, that's the story.....so what about the film? All I can say is this is one of the best 80's films ever made. Despite being nearly 20 years old, it doesn't look dated and can still hold it's own against other modern vampire films in regard to make-up, effects and overall look of the film. The performances from each of the characters is solid and immensely believable which enables you to get dragged into this fantasy world of vampires and actually believe the story. The Lost Boys has one of the best soundtracks of any movie I have ever watched and this only adds to the stylishness of the whole film.
There is a second disc of extras which include some really nice featurettes, some of which show the stars as how they look now and there is also a commentary of the film from Joel Schumacker. The Lost Boys is a film that doesn't take itself too seriously but that doesn't mean you shouldn't. It's fun, exciting and a cult film that will always remind a generation of their childhood. A must have addition to anybodys DVD collection.
My interest was initially perked up by the fact Kiefer Sutherland was in it. Being a bit of a fan, and liking the premise of the film, I decided to buy the double boxset of the film (it works out cheaper - even if the 2nd one is a bit naff in comparison) and I must say it's one of the best films I have seen in ages!
The story goes thus. Michael and Sam move with their mum to Santa Carla, California, after what seems like a slightly messy divorce. They settle in quickly, Sam befriending two (if not slightly odd) comic book store teens, and Michael befriending agang of bikers...or are they?
Pretty soon, Michaels getting up to behaviour that annoys any parent - staying out all night, sleeping all day - while Sam tries to get to the bottom of his brother's wierd behaviour.
I don't want to blow the plot for anyone that hasn't seen it, but it's a fun and wholly entertaining film, with a rousing soundtrack, one or two jump in your seat moment, and for the Kiefer fans out there, yet another role (besides 24) that he seems made for. Keither plays his role with glee and flips between bully, lovable looking rogue and...something a lot less savoury.
Thoroughly entertaining, with some truly comic moments - and not just for the eighties fashions and HUGE hair - but because it doesn't take itself all that seriously - and to be honest is a much better film for it.
So come on - buy today, pop in the DVD player, go back in time to the eighties and enjoy one of those true eighties classics that belongs up there with the likes of Terminator and Robocop!

I've loved this film, since I first saw it back in the day. It's a typical American teen flick but with a twist. Boy moves to a new town. Read morePublished 27 days ago by Andrew N Palmer
