Product Description

Product Description

Previously Enjoyed & Fully Guaranteed

Amazon.ca

This 1987 thriller was a predictable hit with the teen audience it worked overtime to attract. Like most of director Joel Schumacher's films, it's conspicuously designed to push the right marketing and demographic buttons, and granted, there's some pretty cool stuff going on here and there. Take Kiefer Sutherland, for instance. In Stand by Me he played a memorable bully, but here he goes one step further as a memorable bully vampire who leads a tribe of teenage vampires on their nocturnal spree of bloodsucking havoc. Jason Patric plays the new guy in town, who quickly attracts a lovely girlfriend (Jami Gertz), only to find that she might be recruiting him into the vampire fold. The movie gets sillier as it goes along, and resorts to a routine action-movie showdown, but it's a visual knockout (featuring great cinematography by Michael Chapman) and boasts a cast that's eminently able (pardon the pun) to sink their teeth into the best parts of an uneven screenplay. --Jeff Shannon

"We've been aware of serious vampire activity in this town for a long time. Santa Carla has become a haven for the undead. As a matter of fact, we're almost certain that ghouls and werewolves occupy high positions at City Hall."

The above is said by Edgar, one of the Frog brothers (Corey Feldman), in this absorbing horror/comedy movie. (The other brother's name is Allan. The Frog brothers were named after Gothic author, Edgar Allan Poe.)

Briefly, it's about two Arizona brothers, Michael (Jason Patric) and Sam (the late Corey Haim), who move to California and end up fighting a gang of teenage vampires headed by David (Keifer Sutherland).

This is not only a horror movie with vampires but is also a hilarious comedy. The ones that bring a comedic element to this movie are Sam (mentioned above), Grandpa (the late Bernard Hughes), Edgar (mentioned above), Lucy (Dianne Wiest), and Max (the late Edward Herrmann).

The special effects and background music are quite good.

The title of this movie is a reference to "Lost Boys," in the stories about Peter Pan and Neverland who, like the vampires, never grow up.

This film was followed by two direct-to-video sequels: "Lost Boys: The Tribe" and "Lost Boys: The Thirst."

Finally, this DVD set (released in 2004) has 11 extras. I found all of them to be good.

In conclusion, this is quite an entertaining movie that blends humour with comedy. One thing I learned from this movie is to:

Beware of those with bad breath.

(1987; 1 hr, 35 min excluding end credits; wide screen 2 discs; 32 scenes; rated `R')

My girlfriend of 5 years turns to me as I made a Lost boys reference...something to do with Kiefer and vampires...so she turns to me and says I've never seen that movie...and I was like your kidding...she was like I've heard of it...so i went out and bought the blu ray immediately, its not right for someone to not see a movie about vampires in an age where vampires were scary and cool to kids, teens, adults and old people alike. I was blown away that a movie from 1987 could look so clear, it looks like they filmed it this year. As for some of the haters you see who are brainless morons trying to be stewie on family guy "its lame...its lame...everything is lame" haha those people always go to "it's soooo dated" first off, is the movie Jaws "dated" is the original star wars "DATED" Is Jimmy Hendrix or the doors "dated" just because something came out a long time ago does not diminish its impact one bit, aside from a few fashion choices the motherf*&^^er is tip-top. This is a definitive 80's movie right along side Back to the Future, Breakfast Club, Weird Science...etc. Needless to say my gf loved the film and even jumped out of her seat at one point (no spoilers) I recommend every human being see this film and enjoy the greatest vampire film of all time with Kiefer Sutherland the greatest Vamp of all-time, this is fact. Peace Y'all

By Jenny J.J.I. TOP 500 REVIEWER on Nov. 8 2007
Format: DVD
The Lost Boys practically defines 80s teens movies as a horror movie with a gtreat teen cast. Two Brothers, Sam (Haim) and Mike (Patric) move with their newly divorced mom (Wiest) from Phoenix to Santa Carla, a place where, if the corpses were to all stand up at once, there'd be one hell of a population problem, as their goofy backwoods grandfather (Bernard Hughes) explains.

Mike is the first to find out why when his interest in a girl suddenly lures him into a world of trouble with a clan of teen vampires lead by a guy named David (Sutherland). And as Sam's brother turns into a "goddamned bloodsucking vampire," Sam has to call on the strange Frog brothers (Feldman and Newlander) for help, despite his disbelief of their previous warnings that Santa Carla has a major vampire problem, and to their suspicion, possibly werewolves and ghouls as well. They have to find out who the head vampire is before Mike, Star (Jami Garr), and Laddie (Corbitt) become full vampires. This is one fantastic movie as teenagers try to save the day from the cave-dwelling bloodsuckers. Even their enemies--David (Sutherland), Marco (Winter), Paul (Wirth), and Dwayne (McCarter) are cool, even though they are vampires out to kill Sam and Mike and everyone else.

The cast was great in this movie, even Bernard Hughes as Sam and Mike's grandfather because he is just so completely goofy. Edward Herrman and Diane Wiest are likewise funny as their dates are usually spoiled by the intervention by Sam and his vampire hunting endeavors. But, the reason why this is probably the great 80s movie that it is aside from the story, is the hot teen cast, particularly the gorgeous Jason Patric and even Kiefer Sutherland in a part very contrasting to the wierd roles he seemed to be accustomed to in those days.

I don't think I was old enough to remember this film hitting cinemas, but I discovered it before I got too cynical and still have a deep affection for it. It combines horror, forbidden romance, comedy, and touches on issues of peer pressure, loss, divorce and the importance of sticking by your family (even if your brother is a vampire).
A mother (Dianne Wiest) and her two sons (Corey Haim and Jason Patric) move from Arizona to sunny Santa Carla and in with their formulaic "crazy granpa" (you know the type I'm talking about) as a result of divorce. The eldest son Michael (Patric) quickly falls in with the Wrong Crowd by accidentally moving in on Head Honcho's girl (the lovely Jami Gertz). Things take a turn for the worse when Michael discovers these aren't your average bike punks, but a gang of wild vampires. Indeed. It's all up to bratty little bro Sam (Haim) and his new allies the Frog Brothers to save the day, and stop his mother from getting too cosy with a new guy who doesn't just run an appliance store (a nice performance from Edward Herrmann who seems to pop up everywhere).
Kiefer Sutherland is a treat as David, leader of the biker vamps, I still marvel at how he can make a peroxide mullet look cool. He plays this role as a sort of seductive bully very well.
Corey Feldman (because 1 Corey is never enough) also puts in a nice turn as Edgar Frog, plus you'll spot Alexander Winter of Bill & Ted's fame as one of the gang.
It's better than any recent vampire movie, has a great 80's soundtrack (Cry Little Sister, you know you love it) and a greasy saxophone man in purple pants. It's fun, there are a couple of scares and a nice hint of splatter (the Surf Nazi attack is like something out of Peter Jackson's Bad Taste). I give the bare-bones DVD package 3, but the movie 4. And fear not, there will be a special edition very soon with retrospectives, making of and tons more stuff, keep eyes peeled!
