I really like this movie. It's a bit campy in parts, but it's easy to watch, it's quotable, and how can you beat the Corey squared combo? This is one of the movies that I get sucked into (no pun intended) when it's on TV.

If anything, you'll learn that there's too many vampires in that part of California, and that... well, I won't ruin it.

A weak vampire flick...

"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!"

The Lost Boys is a peculiar 1980s crossbreed featuring equal quantities of comedy and horror. The film was popular with audiences upon initial release in 1987, and years later it still wins the hearts of loyal fans and has amassed an extraordinary cult foll... read more

To be honest, it has been a while since I have seen this flick so maybe I should give it a second chance. Basically, the point is that, even though this movie has become pretty much a cult-classic, I seriously didn’t see what was so great about it. If I remember it correctly, back then, I was living in England and my Spanish roommate came up with this movie. Apparently, he was one of those fans ... read more

“I do find Joel Schumacher very hit and miss, when he's good, he is very good, when he is bad, he is very bad. The Lost Boys is a contender alongside Veronica Guerin as the best of his movies. Of course the feel is very 1980s, hence I can understand why some may find it dated. However, the 80s feel adds to the charm of The Lost Boys to me. The film looks very stylish and has a killer soundtrack, my personal favourite soundtrack of Schumacher's movies actually. The script has some cheesy moments, but it is still very entertaining, and the story is swiftly and intelligently told. Schumacher's direction is one of his more secure directing jobs too, no heavy-handedness, no over-saturated colour or frenzied camera work here. The characters are very likable, especially Corey Haim's, and the actin” read more

Childhood Memories (35 tv items)

" Wikipedia: The Lost Boys is a 1987 American teen black comedy horror film directed by Joel Schumacher. The title is a reference to the Lost Boys in J. M. Barrie's stories about Peter Pan and Neverland, who, like the vampires, never grow up. Most of the film was shot in Santa Cruz, California. My memories: My favourite film when I was twelve, I'd been fascinated with The Lost Boys since I'd seen a poster (above) on the wall of an older boys bedroom when I was a little kid. It's the perfect"

"Re-watch - July 17th I think this was my first time seeing The Lost Boys on the big screen. It's possible I'm forgetting seeing it as a midnight movie at some point, but I don't think I am. Looking back at the last time I watched it I'm not sure why I came down so hard on it. Perhaps I wasn't in the right mood, or maybe this time around I was just in a better headspace in the wake of The Evil Dead. Whatever the case, I do still think the film puts too much weight on style over substance, but "
