Product Description

From Amazon.co.uk

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

5.0 out of 5 stars An 80`s Classic 28 Aug 2006
By JT
Format:DVD
I remember seeing this at the cinema all those years ago. I didn`t have a clue what it was about but had been dragged along for a Saturday night out by my mates. I remember asking "So what`s this film about then" "well" came the reply "it`s about Vampires....." Before i could argue the queue had moved forward & i found myself inside the ticket office & on into the cinema....2 hrs later i came out with a big grin on my face & me & my mates rolling round the floor laughing at "The Frog Brothers" & i`ve been a fan ever since. This film is typical of the times it comes from. It`s full of great music espiecially the "Cry Little Sister" theme song, It`s choca Bloc full of stunts & action, It`s got a great sense of style including some great fashions, Alex Winters Jacket looks so cool it`s unbelievable even today. The acting is 1st class, & there`s a great sense of humour running through it. It has that "Positive" 80`s vibe running through it were we all believed anything was possible & the good guys always won. It`s a great film & well worth the purchase price just for the film alone but this is a special 2 disc set which makes it doubly worth getting. There is a selection of short`sh documentaries on disc 2 containing interviews with many of the cast including Kiefer Sutherland on the set of 24. I`d have prefered the documentaries to have been longer but hey there good so at least it`s interesting. If your a fan or you`ve heard lots about this film then this is highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Blu-Ray Review 19 May 2009
Format:Blu-ray
everyone knows how class this film is, but thought would right a quick review on the blu-ray version/quality.

quality of picture, vibrant colours, scenes with light flawless however some of the darker scenes mid way through the film have a very high contrast causing white speckles.

quality of the sound - flawless!! the soundtrack really stands out and some of the background sounds are really clear.

I have this film on all formats - blu ray a must for all fans of this film.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lost Boys....Lost Years!! 31 Mar 2005
Format:DVD
Oh how this fantastic film brings me back to my childhood years. I first watched this film when I was about 13 and I loved it, still do! Now 15 years on and I still find myself singing 'tho' shalt not fall' It is a must for any vampire addict......even though it is a 1987 film, it still has a modern feel. Excellent...Thank you Lost Boys!

5.0 out of 5 stars 'Pray that you never need to call us!' 15 April 2007
Format:DVD
There seems to be two camps on this. One for 'Near Dark' another 80's Vamp flick and one for the supposed more Hollywood version that is 'The Lost Boys'. Well I've seen both and I'm gonna have to side with the Lost Boys. The film takes place in the city of Santa Carla where a newly divorced mother (Dianne Wiest) brings her two sons to stay with her father. Soon the eldest son Micheal (Jason Patric) gets a bit of a thing for gypsy style vampire Star who gets him all vamped up and intiated into bad-ass biker vampire gang. His little brother Sam (Corey Fieldman) now has to help save his brother from the gang with the help of the fantastic Frogg brothers. This really is a fantastic film. After the first five miutes you forget that it is pretty dated now. And only the almighty Kiefer Sutherland could make the 80's that sexy. It's vampire movies at their best and the brilliant monologue between Fieldman and Corey Haim is comedy classic. A perfect all rounder with an shoulder-padded, big haired soudtrack. Excellent!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars The greatest vampire movie ever! 27 Jun 2000
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
I remember being quite young when I first saw this classic movie, then I thought it was the greatest movie ever and even now after quite a few years (and a few very bad vampire movies), I still think it is an absolute classic, the greatest there ever has or ever will be. Maybe now that I'm that little bit older I can also appreciate the soundtrack to this movie, when I was younger it wasn't as significant as the movie itself but if the truth be known, the movie warranted the soundtrack or vice versa? You decide!

4.0 out of 5 stars The Lost Boys find the spot 16 Sep 2004
By JD
Format:DVD
Roll over, Dracula. The vampires of modern times are hip, sexy and laugh in the face of garlic. The Lost Boys was one of the first movies to present the creatures of the night in this new, comic-book style, and it does so remarkably well. The story centers around two teenagers, Sam and Michael, who move with their single mother to Santa Cruz to live with their grandfather. As they slowly try to integrate into the community, Michael stumbles across gorgeous Star, who just happens to be the girlfriend of the leader of a teen motorcycle gang who don't really seem alive...The movie succeeds as a story of teenagers' desire to fit in and gain acceptance, and also as a well-crafted mystery, as the vampires do not reveal themselves as such until almost the very end. This movie also succeeds as comedy, with some classic one-liners: "My own brother a blood-sucking vampire! Wait till Mom finds out!" For a horror movie there is almost no horror until the very end, where there are some nasty shocks but the tone is so campy and wierd that people are likely to say "cool" instead of "gross". All in all a superior vampire movie that turns a lot of cliches on their heads, has a smart script, great actors (Kiefer Sutherland is just fantastic as the head vampire, oozing superiority and sinister coolness) and atmospheric direction from Joel Schumacher which makes one wonder how he could go from such good filmmaking in "The Lost Boys" to the unrelenting crap of "Batman and Robin". See it if you like a good vampire tale without the baroque, victorian trappings of Bram Stoker's overdone classic. It's as good as it gets.
