The Lost Boys 1987

Two brothers move to a new town and soon fall in with the wrong crowd. Nothing unusual about that, except these particular no-mark punks also happen to be blood-swilling vampires. The older brother (Jason Patric) proves easy prey and is soon a fully paid-up member of the undead. But the younger brother (Corey Haim) is made of tougher stuff and, along with a couple of friends, decides to make a ...

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.

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!!!

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!

The Lost Boys is the story of a mother (played by Dianne Wiest) who relocates to a town called Santa Carla with her two sons (Corey Haim and Jason Patric) after a divorce to live with her father. Little do the family know that Santa Carla is filled with vampires. A gang of teenage vampires led by Kiefer Sutherland manages to make Michael (Jason Patric) into a half-vampire by tricking him into drinking blood. There begins the story of his brother attempting to try and save Michael by killing the head vampire enlisting the assistance of 2 vampire hunters one of which is played by Corey Feldman.

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.

This is one of the best films I have ever seen. I remember having it on vhs but somehow lost it so ended up buying this dvd set. An absolute masterpiece of film, a true gem from the 1980's. Highly original with some excellent humour placed inside. If your into vampire films and even if you are not, this film is definatly worth purchasing. 5/5 in my opinion and a film that ill be watching again and again. Amazing!
