  • For those of us growing up in the 80s, this was one of the (and still is) coolest films for our generation.
  • The original teen vampire movie!
  • 2 more classic roles for Corey Haim and Corey Feldman, who could do no wrong in the 80s, and Keither Sutherland in his young young days!
  • An awesome classic 80s soundtrack.

Sam and his older brother Michael are All-American teens with all-American interests. But after they move with their mother to peaceful Santa Carla, California, things mysteriously begin to change. Michael's not himself lately. And mom's not going to like what he's turning into.

The Lost Boys reshapes vampire tradition, deftly mixing heart-pounding terror, rib-tickling laughs and a body-gyrating rock soundtrack. Under Joel Schumacher's direction, a marvellous cast - Jason Patric, Jami Gertz, Kiefer Sutherland, Corey Feldman, Corey Haim, Barnard Hughes and Edward Herrmann - stakes you to gleefully ghoulish entertainment.

Michael wants to know what's going on. Marco, what's going on?I don't know. What's going on, Paul?Wait a minute. Who wants to know?Michael wants to know.
How are those maggots?Huh?Maggots, Michael. You're eating maggots. How do they taste?
One thing about living in Santa Carla I never could stomach, all the damn vampires.
Now you know what we are, now you know what you are. You'll never grow old, Michael, and you'll never die. But you must feed!

Don't ever invite a vampire into your house, you silly boy. It renders you powerless.Did you know that?Of course. Everyone knows that.
