An absolute classic not to be missed. As far as vampire movies go, this is at the very top of the list. Many famous faces show up and there is just this nostalgic sense of an open future which can be found in movies of the same era. The world was new and everyone was having a great time. One of the coolest films ever made. Quentin Tarantino references this is his classic, "Pulp Fiction."

The story is about a family, that is staying with their grandfather, finds that there is something strange going on in the town. The town is plagued by odd deaths and missing people, vampires could be the culprit. This movie is a fun 80'S movie with funny characters and enjoyable movie.

I just never get sick of this film. I've seen it more times than I can count and I still absolutely love it. And that it's cheesy (as I see that most of you who have reviewed it have pointed out) is a big part of what makes it hilarious in my opinion. Cheesiness done right if that makes any sense. This is a film I watch whenever I don't want to think and just be happy.

Jeder jagt jeden

Die Lost Boys in diesem Film sind Vampire, Teenager Vampire - und ausserdem gibt es ein "Lost Girl", aber wozu erwähne ich sie überhaupt noch? Tagsüber schlafen die Vampire in ihrem Versteck, nachts sind sie unterwegs durch Santa Cruz (damals in den 80ern das Zentrum der Massenmorde in den USA). Dann kommt der Neue in die Stadt und die Lost Boys nehmen ihn ins Visier. Und das Lost Girl? Sie sieht einfach nur hinreissend aus! Von Beginn an verwehrt uns Joel Schumacher ambitionierte Unterhaltung und macht sich ans Werk, die Seele von The Lost Boys zu verkaufen. Es gibt anfangs einen kurzen Moment, da scheint sich Schumacher tatsächlich für seine Charaktere zu interessieren und der Neue Teil der Lost Boys zu werden. Dann aber entwickelt sich The Lost Boys doch nur zu einem Action M...

Sex, the Coreys, and Rock n Roll

The Lost Boys is a movie that many have watched and few can forget, a movie which posesses that magic which holds us and keeps us watching untill the credits roll. I have seen many vampire movies in my lifetime, and few, with maybe the exception of Fright Night, have truely ever had the feeling of immense adolescent fun that the Lost Boys had. This movie is probabely one of the most unforgettable movies of the 1980's, which really was a fun decade for movies.

The Lost Boys has some of the best performances given by teenagers I have ever seen, and the one which stands out the most is Corey Feldman's performance as vampire hunter Edgar Frog. Corey Feldman really tried to make Edger a fun character, one which you really get excited with every scene he's in, and Feldman does a mo...

Not the best vampire movie

A recently divorced mother (Diane Weist) and her two sons (Jason Patric and Corey Haim) move to "Santa Clara, California" (Santa Cruz, California, which is where the movie was filmed) to live with her father (Barnard Hughes). Unknown to them, "Santa Clara" is having a rash of missing children.

Shortly after they settle in, the elder son, "Michael" (Patric), attends an outdoor concert and sees a beautiful girl (Jami Gertz) elsewhere in the audience and they momentarily lock eyes and show signs of attraction to each other. Later on, they bump into each other on the unnamed local boardwalk amusement park (Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk in reality) where she introduces herself as "Star". He then runs into her boyfriend, "David" (Kiefer Sutherland), who leads a trouble-making motorcycle gang i...
