Director: Joel Schumacher
Main Stars: Jason Patric, Corey Haim, Dianne West, Kiefer Sutherland, Jami Gertz, Corey Feldman, Edward Herrmann
Storyline: A young American family move to the desert and it’s infested by vampires.
Review (Spoils): The 80s would no never been the same if this movie was not made. Its screams 80s and screams Hollywood hit. Sure the film has some cheesy lows but it calls from my childhood. We have the famous Coreys (Corey Haim, Corey Feldman) and the every young man’s dream Jami Gertz and every young woman’s dream Kiefer Sutherland.
A mother (Dianne West) and her two sons (Jason Patric, Corey Haim) move to the south to a small town that is plagued with vampires. The older son Michael (Jason Patric) gets involved with the wrong crowd (they are vampires lead by Kiefer Sutherland) and the younger son Sam (Corey Haim) gets involved with some young lads that claim to be vampire hunters (Corey Feldman). Somewhere in the middle we have teenage anguish, Sam falling for the beautiful girl of the crowd named Star (Jami Gertz) and last but not least the mother falls in love with the head vampire Max (Edward Herrmann). Add some blood, weird dreams, and wicked white eyes we have The Lost Boys!
Rating: This movie is lacking in horror but it bleeds 80s and childhood memories and there is nothing creepier than that weird song. It’s not true horror but it’s a good film to have some pints too.
