The Lost Boys
Sleep all day. Party all night. Never grow old. Never die. It's fun to be a vampire.
A mother and her two teenage sons move to a seemingly nice and quiet small coastal California town yet soon find out that it's overrun by bike gangs and vampires. A couple of teenage friends take it upon themselves to hunt down the vampires that they suspect of a few mysterious murders and restore peace and calm to their town.
I grew up in a house where there wasn't a clear line between Ozzy Osbourne and Satan himself. At least, they were presented as more or less interchangeable. The world, I was taught, was an army of horrors constantly trying to overtake you and turn you into the devil's hand-puppet. There really was a demon behind every bush. Even people like Bono were a portrait of depravity and decadence.
It was from this world that I encountered The Lost Boys late one night when my parents were out and the babysitter had fallen asleep. I was up past my bedtime and constantly lowering and raising the volume so I could hear it without being caught. I was shifting in my…
I love Corey Haim's dog, his "Born to Shop" t-shirt, and his seductive pose poster of Rob Lowe. I love the cheesey goodness that doubles every time Corey Feldman is on-screen. I love Kiefer Sutherland as a bad guy, and I love crazy taxidermist of the year Grandpa. I'd say the only thing I don't love about this movie is the saxophone playing beefcake. And still, every time I see this movie, that scene makes me go "What the fuck?," so perhaps I do love it, if only for it's reliability.
A childhood classic! Growing up this epitomised cool. The Frog Brothers are awesome and this is the film that first introduced me to The Doors, even though they don't sing 'People are Strange' during the opening credits. I've seen this film over 100 times and it has lost some of it shine but it still holds up and is always worth a re-watch ever 5 years or so.

I had a heated internal debate on which film to choose that best represented the horror genre of the ‘80’s as part of my October/Halloween project, and in the end, after much spilt blood, decided upon The Lost Boys. In case you haven’t heard of this film (though I think most will have unless you are either A) a hermit or B) have an intense hatred of cinema), The Lost Boys follows two brothers whom move to a seemingly quaint and quiet…
Not sure how i've managed to skip this film, but I finally got around to watching it.
I can't say that The Lost Boys aged well, but I have to admit that it's a fun movie that's VERY 80's!
It's an entertaining comedy/horror that feels like The Goonies meets Fright Night (the original of course!).
Plus, you gotta love the Coreys!

There's literally nothing to dislike about The Lost Boys. It even has a frickin' awesome title.
Death by stereo do i need to say more
The Lost Boys is a fondly-remembered film for many children of the 80s, and it’s easy to see why. The story plays on both the teen gang genre popular then (see The Outsiders for the big example), and on vampire movies, with just a bit of comedy throughout. The genre-blending, which can sometimes blow up in a director’s face, works well here under Joel Schumacher’s command. Kiefer Sutherland is appropriately menacing but likeable as David, the two Coreys fill their roles entertainingly, and the rest of the actors also put in good performances. Read full review
It was decent. Clearly the star of the film was Corey Feldman with that forced deep voice & snappy jokes.
Aunque The Lost Boys continúa la tradición de películas de aventuras para adolescentes que tan de moda estuvieron en los 80, son los pedacitos de terror, la atmósfera calmada y poco recargada de la primera hora del filme y esa pizquita de gore del final la que consiguen darle un estilo propio y no demasiado azucarado; lo cual, sumado a esa brillante idea que tan bien puso en práctica el Alien de Ridley Scott de sugerir más que mostrar, hace que aún hoy en día siga siendo una película más que disfrutable.
Haven't seen in decades, and it's still as fun as I remember it.
Kind of made me miss the 80s...kind of.
Still good fun after all this time.
Es una de esas películas de obligado visionado pese a no ser del todo del género de terror. Digamos que es terror soft, muy juvenil y fresca, casi para todos los públicos. Claramente buscando la complicidad de un público joven que se sintiera atraído por los chicos malos que vuelan y resultan ser vampiros.
Contiene un humor bastante especial y el argumento es bastante simple: familia nueva se encuentra con una posible transformación en vampiro de uno de sus miembros y trata de evitar que se complete. Todo esto con una estupenda banda sonora.
Grab a wooden stake, a chain of garlic (even though it doesn't work) fill your plastic squirt gun up with holy water and lock the doors. The Lost Boys is hands down my all time favorite vampire flick. It's cheesy fun and the special effects out shine any modern day Twilight Vampire Diaries bullshit vampire movie/show. This movie is full of laughs and scares. As any vampire film should be it's a perfect blend of comedy and horror it doesn't take it's self seriously. Plus not to mention the god tier soundtrack this film has. The Lost Boys is a perfect 80's gem and deserves to be highly ranked in the vampire genre of cinema.
"¡Mi propio hermano es un vampiro de mierda! ¡Verás cuando lo sepa mamá!", y así todo.
