The Lost Boys review

Film description

In a Nutshell:

Scary vampires kill people. The usual.



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


'What, you don't like rice? Tell me Michael, how could a billion Chinese people be wrong?'

'Now you know what we are. You'll never grow old, Michael, and you'll never die. But you must feed!'

'One thing about living in Santa Carla I never could stomach, all the damn vampires.'


Micheal Emerson (Jason Patric) moves to Santa Carla with his mother and brother to stay with their insane grandad.

In the beginning it's all 80's songs, 80's hair-dos, 80's outfits and occasional scenery shots. It kicks off with a bit of comedy then it gets down to the 'nitty-gritty', you might say.

Whilst on the boardwalk listening to the amazing Tim Capello play that beautiful sax of his, he spots some dark haired babe in gypsy clothes. Obviously, he's hooked.

But, there is a twist! She's a vampire and so is her possessive ex-boyfriend David (a scarily good looking Keifer Sutherland).

These punky 80's vamps manage to trick Micheal into drinking blood, which turns him into a vampire. Oh the horror, the horror.

After finding Michael floating outside his bedroom window like that kid out of Salem's Lot, Michael's karaoke-crazed brother (Corey Haim) turns to local nerds the Frog brothers for help.

Together, they must find and kill the head vampire in order to save his brooding brother from a fate worse then death... well, kinda.
