The Lost Boys

This is about as good as it gets with the Eighties camp-goth genre and there a bucket loads of bloody fun to be had here. First, it's a film Joel Schumacher didn't fuck up, as in he still had a sense of humor back then and wasn't inclined to boring his viewers to the point of distraction. Second, we have Corey Haim and Corey Feldman at the pinnacle of their careers and third we have my man Kiefer Sutherland leading a pack of hoodlum vampires! Think of it as YOUNG GUNS for the cemetary crowd if you will. Not bad special effects, a bit of support work from Alex Winter who we would all come to know much better as Bill S. Preston Esq. in BILL & TED'S EXCELLENT ADVENTURE and Schumacher left it up to two time Oscar winner Dianne Wiest to add an air of credibility to the whole thing. One of the best offerings of the time period and it's worth noting Kiefer wears those bike gloves throughout to cover the cast on his broken arm which I'm sure he didn't do while intoxicated as I've never seen Kiefer take a drink....he does look might rad with those fangs and contacts though hence why THE LOST BOYS was a hit with both genders,
