  • This one does nothing for me. I've watched it several times but have come away with only the desire to rewatch Near Dark.

    • The Lost Boys is one of the movies that I think epitomizes the 1980's. It has a genuine 80's look and feel, as well as an awesome soundtrack and some fantastic performances.

      This movie really draws you into it and makes you feel like you're right there in Santa Carla. The music fits the film perfectly. Nothing would have worked better. The setting is perfect. If you were a vampire and you were never going to die, where else would you want to spend your time? The amusement park, the abandoned cave with all that great stuff in it, and the railroad tracks (trust me, you'll understand after you see it) are absolutely incredible. The way Joel Schumacher uses certain POV shots and the eerie fog only add to the mood and atmosphere of the movie.

      The gore and special effects are great! Since this is an 80's movie, there is no CGI thankfully, so everything you see is really real. The make-up of the vampires is excellent with their piercing eyes and long fangs. The gore doesn't really show itself until the end, though there is a very bloody (but quick) campfire attack in the middle. Once we do get to the blood and guts, it's great! There's a melting vampire in holy water, an exploding vampire, two excellent impalings, and more where that came from.

      Finally, the acting is great. We have a very good cast, especially Kiefer Sutherland, who puts everyone else to shame. Jason Patric is a little dry, but he's great in his role. Max and Lucy have good chemistry, as well as Star and Michael. The Frog Brothers are classic and are responsible for most of the humor. Superb performances by all!

      The Bottom Line:

      A true 80's flick, with great performances, awesome special effects, a rocking soundtrack!!

      • I heard rumors about a remake of The Lost Boys with Megan Fox as Star but don't know how credible that is.

                    • Really enjoyed the film, when I watched it years back. Seen it a few times since, but will be a while before I check it out again. My favourite scene is the one where the vampires attack and feed off their prey, near the tree.

                            • "The Lost Boys"....Wonderful 80's vampire flick. Hip, scary, thrilling, funny, and gory!! Top notch cast led by the sexy and suave Jason Patric and Keifer Sutherland. Only mild cheesy thing is the fake "deep voice" acting Cory Feldman portrays in the film. Dont know what was with that. Terrific special effects, wonderful make up, great location spots and art direction, awesome music score, and fine ensemble acting all highlight the film. I grew up with this movie and it is one of my alltime faves!
